It’s not even September yet, but the Glee stars already seem to be ready for October and Halloween. Why else would they be starting to dress up in different versions of animal costumes?

Darren Criss (Blaine) sported cat ears while filming a scene for Glee’s upcoming Season 4, Episode 3 on August 18, as seen in this photo tweeted by show creator Ryan Murphy. Frankly, we’re a little confused as to why Blaine is dressed up as a cat-eared, bow tie-wearing superhero, instead of just an average superhero, but who are we to question the mind of Ryan Murphy?

Plus, it’s Darren Criss. The man wore an eyepatch last season and still managed to look hot. We love him no matter what he’s wearing.

Facing off against Darren is Lea Michele (Rachel), who sports tiny wire cat ears on her cover of NYLON Magazine for September 2012. Lea’s cat ears are a cute and slightly more understated fashion accessory, while Darren’s are a can’t-miss, kitschy sort of costume flair.

So which look do you like best — Darren’s awesomely cheesy costume, or Lea’s fashion-minded Kitty couture?
