NASA already won Geekoween with the most impressive display of pumpkin carvery we’ve ever seen but this year’s runner-up is definitely PayScale.

With coordinated group costumes representing Mario Kart, Willy Wonka, and Harry Potter, the Seattle salary data company brought it this year.

Honorable mentions go to the adorably geeky Finn and Rey duo, a very snappy Simply Measured employee, and a mysterious Mr. Robot lurking around the AWS office.

It wouldn’t be Geekoween 2016 without at least one “Stranger Things” costume and, fortunately, an engineer from SkyKick delivered. Check out this video explaining how he used Microsoft Azure to recreate the wall that Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) uses to communicate with her son.

Below we compiled the best costumes from Seattle startups and tech companies. Show us your geeky getup by tweeting with the hashtag #geekoween.
