It was a quiet, costumeless Halloween at the TODAY Show thanks to Superstorm Sandy, which meant that Hoda and Kathie Lee were doubly excited to check out fans' costumes sent in from around the country.
There was Hoda's niece Hannah, dressed as Cinderella, a "baby pepper" from fan Megan Genkin ("Look at the cheeks!" said KLG), viewer Kay Grant Krum dressed as "taking a shower," and, of course, plenty of revelers who went as your favorite wine-sipping co-anchors.
Fans Lauren and Jen's version of the ladies was so uncanny that it shocked the real deal.
"Is that us?!" gasped Hoda.
"If we need substitutes, call them," said KLG.
