Gay cowboys set aside their hats and boots – mostly – for some costumed craziness at Neon Boots on Friday, fighting for their chance at bragging rights and a host of prizes.

The Fright Night fun at the bar attracted costumes of all sorts, from cowboys in luffas, "Star Wars" characters, pirates and all sorts of masked men. Gay Houston native, actor and singer Tye Blue hosted the costume contest, which offered prizes including a trip to Las Vegas.
