Halloween costumes have come a long way from the elementary ghouls, witches and cats of the past. With exuberant, full-body transformations, these A-listers have recreated iconic characters with their own unique twists, resulting in outcomes that range from mildly eerie to garishly nightmare-inducing. Regardless of the effect, the outfits possess a certain level of panache that serve to inspire our own efforts as we piece together our looks this Hallow’s Eve.
There have been a number of notable halloween duos – Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker perfected Edward Scissorhands and Kim Boggs, Beyonce and Jay Z nailed Barbie and Ken, and Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly stunned as 90s It-couple Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. Individually, Ariana Grande was unrecognisable as the Creature from the Black Lagoon and Megan Thee Stallion flaunted her My Hero Academia as Rabbit Hero Mirko, while Cindy Crawford glowed as the iconic Marilyn Monroe and Blackpink’s Jisoo transformed into Lisa for a night. And lest we forget the reigning queen of Halloween, Heidi Klum, with her notorious annual costume party and disconcertingly realistic getups, from Jessica Rabbit to a literal worm.
