Hordes of people dressed up as Honey Boo Boo this Halloween ... but the question on everyone's mind ... WHAT DID HONEY BOO BOO DRESS UP AS??? 

Answer: A bright-pink, goth-themed pirate!!!!! At least ... that's our best guess.

TMZ obtained a ridiculously, adorable pic of HBB -- real name Alana Thompson -- getting her trick-or-treat on during All Hallows Eve, and her costume was a far cry from redneckery and tiaras.

Donning a jet-black wig ... awesome bright-pink rocker stripes ... what we assume is a black-and-pink pirate dress (thanks skull & crossbones) ... and a purple pumpkin candy carrier ... HBB was all about bold statements.

We're told the night went really well ... she had a great time ... and ate some delicious candy -- her favorite being lollipops.

Um, duh.
