Halloween is officially here offering an evening for everyone, especially celebrities, to indulge in all that the spooky season has to offer. Yes, Hollywood does seem to have a penchant for producing more than just scary movies, with its most famous using the scariest night of the year as the ultimate excuse to dip into their dark side with costumes get wilder and more ingenious than before.
Forget your spindly Wicked Witch of the West or go-to ghoulish cover up; these are next-level, meticulously produced disguises, thought-up months in advance and produced hand in hand with teams of hair and make-up artists.
From Cher’s iconic Cleopatra moment and Kylie Jenner dressed up as Christina Aguilera circa “Dirrty” to Rihanna as a pizza-eating Ninja Turtle and Bruce Willis and his assistant Stephen J. Eads as The Shining twins, there definitely has been no shortage of scary, hilarious, or simply fabulous Hollywood guises over the years.
And for 2019, celebrities aren’t pulling the brakes on the shock value just yet; no, their costumes are getting more creative, more bewildering and more over the top than ever before.
