Even though it’s less than a week until Halloween, you’re probably still struggling to figure out your costume. We’ve all been there, but some of us take Halloween very seriously. Dressing up isn’t just for kids going trick or treating. It’s an opportunity to turn up and turn out with extravagant clothes and makeup. Basically, it’s one of the only times a year being extra is accepted and encouraged.
In need of some costume inspiration? We got you covered. Check out 10 celebrities who were very extra on Halloween.
Gaga decided to join her little monsters last year by dressing up as Edward Scissorhands. People were afraid of Edward because he was different, so it makes sense that Gaga decided to embrace this character for Halloween.
In 2014, RiRi raised the bar for turtle costumes everywhere. She showed up every Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume ever done over the previous 30 years. Better yet, she looks hot doing it.
In 2017, Tyga went as Jim Carrey from “The Mask” for Halloween. The look was spot on from head-to-toe along with the pose. If it wasn’t for the hand tattoo sneaking out of his sleeve, we could’ve been guessing about the man behind the mask for a while.
We love a good family collaboration, and this is one of the best to date. The Carters (pre-twins) made Barbie, Ken, and Kelly the most fashionable family alive. Barbie didn’t know style until Beyoncé came along!
Everyone knows that Heidi Klum is the Queen of Halloween. Pretty much every one of her costumes falls under the category of extra, but we had to hand it to her 2015 Jessica Rabbit look. Her unrecognizable cartoon face and body took several hours to apply, and the iconic red dress was made by Christian Siriano. It takes a village people.
Seriously? Chrissy Teigen as Guy Fieri in 2015 will go down as one of the best costumes in history. Not only did Chrissy’s costume mirror Guy IRL, but the costume was comfortable to wear all night long! There you have it; Being extra for Halloween doesn’t mean you have to suffer every minute of it.
We have to appreciate the accuracy that JT, Jessica, and their son Silas had with their costumes last year. Buzz Lightyear, Jesse, and Woody worked seamlessly with this family of three. If you don’t have the means to create faces like Tyga and Heidi, choose a costume that works for your looks. Wardrobe is a game changer, so work it!
It’s hard to keep up with the Kardashians, but there was no way anyone missed Kim’s skeleton costume in 2014. The makeup was on point, and she made it different by creating her own skeleton bodysuit. When it’s good, it’s good, and there’s no denying that this was a good look.
Fergie as a pageant ready Honey Boo Boo child is everything. If you need any costume inspiration, this is the perfect example of how to elevate your costume with props. The trophy and teddy bear make the costume more recognizable. Our Fergie did the most with this costume, and who doesn’t love a tutu and crinoline?!
If there is one family we can count on to turn up for October 31st, it’s the Burtka-Harris family. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka take Halloween very seriously, and now so do their kids. Last year they replicated American Horror Story: Freak Show with a crazy ring master, killer clown, strong man, and bearded lady (the cutest of all). Sorry Heidi; the Burtka-Harris family wins Halloween. PERIOD.
