Gwen Stefani's Halloween Costume Is a Little Bit Country & a Little Bit Yikes! (PHOTOS)

gwen stefaniWho needs a date when you're the hottest cowgirl in the West? Certainly not Gwen Stefani, who celebrated the first Halloween following her split from husband Gavin Rossdale by making an appearance at a star-studded L.A. costume party -- and by wearing a cowgirl-themed disguise that managed to be both sexy and scary. 


But the best part about Stefani's cowgirl getup (besides the fact that it was super colorful and fun and flattering to boot) is that it was neither too sexy nor too scary -- just the right amount of each. See, from this angle it just looks like a regular (if rather fancy) cowgirl costume:

Cute braids! But then, from this angle ...

Whoa, pardner, what happened there? Did you get kicked in the head by a rowdy steer?? And there was even more blood on her neck:

Yikes! Well, I guess all sorts of dangerous things can happen on the range. No word yet on what, exactly, inspired this costume choice -- is this bloody cowgirl a character from something I've never heard of? I Googled, you guys, but I couldn't find anything.

Although maybe fellow Voice judge and possible love interest Blake Shelton's influence is showing here? He is a country singer, after all. Hmmm. But what about the blood? Did Stefani just all of a sudden realize "Cowgirl" wasn't spooky enough and spatter on some fake blood last minute? 

We may never know, friends -- we may never know. And THAT is the scariest part of all.
