Nightmare on Jersey Shore

In the intra-Jersey Shore costume contest, there’s a clear winner. (Well, as much as there can be with this sort of thing.) Of the three who were here this past weekend, Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino comes in a distant third. He hosted Jet’s Nightmare in Jersey on Oct. 29 and didn’t even bother to wear a costume. But being The Situation is practically a full-time costume in and of itself.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi had a custom-tailored job for her Pickle Princess outfit for Round 2 of Jet’s Nightmare on Oct. 30—complete with dill chip dress, green cape, tiara and giant pickle scepter. It was over-the-top and vaguely desperate, so it fit right in with the Jersey ethos.

The shocker of the night, though, was when Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio turned up at Moon on Oct. 30 decked out in his most authentic Justin Bieber finery. He came in a purple hoodie with green high-tops, cheap sunglasses—and no blowout.

Pauly D looked vaguely Caesarian in his get-up, but quickly covered up his de-gelled locks with a baseball cap when it came time to work the turntables. It was the first time he was able to wear a hat in public without scraping up against the ceiling all night.
