Thinking ahead—waaaay ahead, past Labor Day, fashion week, and more—to Halloween, we present for your consideration: Ricky's costumes inspired by the reality TV show "Jersey Shore." There's a DJ Pauly D, a skinny version of The Situation, and an abs-tastic version of The Situation. We're gonna take a stab and guess that the woman on the far right is meant to be Snooki, though, with the boobage, she could be JWOWW—or, perhaps, a conflagration of the two. There's also another Snooki costume, but we agree with the Gothamist folks on this one—somehow she looks a whole lot like Teresa Giudice, our favorite character from "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."
