LGBT athletes took Halloween by storm last night and over the weekend, with everything from kid-friendly to sexy to, well, odd.

Here are the costumes of some LGBT professional and Olympic athletes. Interestingly, we could find very few female athletes who posted pictures of themselves in Halloween costumes on Instagram this week. The gay men, of course, owned it.

Robbie Rogers joined his husband, Greg Berlanti, and their son Caleb on Sesame Street. By the way, Rogers said Caleb was in charge of the costumes this year.

The whole gang is here!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN
