Exceptionally high income and access to both costume professionals and special effects masters certainly gives a person an advantage when it comes to scaring up a top shelf halloween costume. Still, these celebs get extra about their getups so they deserve a solid nod for their seasonal spirit.
Marvel at these truly great disguises ranging from fun to fabulous to fantastical out of Hollywood’s recent and (more than) decent Halloween history.
Iggy Azalea as Cruella Deville
That Dalmatian should be more afraid.
Debra Messing as Darla from Finding Nemo
Nailed it. That poor prop fish though.
The hosts of Today as the entire Peanuts Gang
Good grief! Very fun but equal parts impressive and terrifying.
Beyonce, JayZ and Blue Ivy as Barbie and Ken
It’s the boxes that sell it. The family also dressed up as royalty in an homage to Coming to America one year. We were already kneeling anyway.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Popeye
He eats his spinach. Sooo much spinach.
Emily Ratajkowsi as Marge Simpson
A blue beehive and jaundiced complexion has never looked so fetching.
Kim Kardashian as a Mermaid
We think this conceptual mer-gown worked out swimmingly.
Jessica Alba as Dora the Explorer
Complete with Map and Bag. Where’s Boots, though?
Josh Duhamel and Fergie as Karl Lagerfeld and his cat, Choupette
Too busy applauding to type anything clever here.
Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry as Bill and Hillary Clinton
Yup, that’s really Bloom and Perry under there. Wonder who they voted for?
Katy Perry as a Flaming Cheeto
Still, Perry solo as this cheezy snack is too delicious not to include.
Amanda Seyfried as the Wicked Witch of the West
She aced this, my pretties. And her little (well, medium-sized) dog, too.
Chris Colfer as Grumpy Cat
Cheeriest guy ever going as Grumpy Cat – and expertly so.
Chrissy Teigen as Guy Fieri
Just fantastic all around. Frosted tips and flames on point.
Mario Lopez and baby as Elvis (Elvy?)
Two hunks of burnin’ love.
Nicole Richie and friend as Twins
Fun buddy costume for a little human and large human, and very well executed.
Gigi Hadid as Sandy from Grease
Go, go greased lightning.
Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka and fam as Neverland regulars
Cuteness overload. But that’s to be expected, the Harris-Burtka’s excel at this. Like really excel.
Rihanna and her squad as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Shredder should be worried. But now we kinda want pizza.
Emma Roberts as Pretty Woman, Vivian Ward
She probably got full approval from her aunt Julia (Roberts, fyi).
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart as nerds
One of the coolest couples ever going as a pair of nerds has a nice festive feel to it.
Aziz Ansari as The Weeknd
Simple. Elegant. Hilarious.
Demi Moore as Gomez Addams
A bit of a throw back, still, this is simply a great Gomez.
But… the Celebrity Queen of Halloween, skeletal hands down, is Heidi Klum:
She’s gone as Forbidden Fruit complete with Serpent
An impressive Cat
Kali, with all appendages accounted for
A Cheerful Chimp
A much, much older lady
A bizarrely beautiful butterfly
And a cartoonishly proportioned Jessica Rabbit
