Countless magazines will tell you that stars are “just like us.” But if Halloween costumes can be used as any type of measure, famous folks are just a little bit richer, cooler and more connected than we are. Even if these small-screen celebs didn’t come up with the wildly creative ideas for their getups, they sure look amazing wearing them. From Limetown leading lady Jessica Biel, who dressed up as her famous hubby Justin Timberlake while he dressed as a microphone, to American Horror Story regular Evan Peters and his songstress girlfriend Halsey channeling their inner and outer Sonny and Cher, these 13 looks are giving us all the inspiration needed to get in the mood for all things All Hallows’ Eve. Scroll down for more fun ideas:
Don’t say Bye, Bye, Bye to Biel’s brilliant nod to old school JT. Timberlake hasn’t rocked the ramen noodles since the early 2000s but his wife has us feeling all the nostalgia.
Speaking of throwbacks, LA’s Finest star Gabrielle Union got her start in the cheerleading hit Bring It On nearly 20 years ago. This is especially hard to believe because Union has barely aged a day. For added Halloween fun, the actress dressed up as her character from the movie, Isis, and included her 11-month-old daughter, Kaavia.
Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross‘ nod to the Us character Red is as frightening as it is dope. When Saturday Night Live parodied the horror movie, we laughed. When Ross did it, her fans on the ‘Gram begged her to stop because it’s just a little too accurate.
Actor Evan Peters has appeared in eight out of nine seasons of American Horror Story including American Horror Story: Cult, so he knows scary. Surprisingly, when it came to dressing up for an AHS Halloween party this year, he and his pop star girlfriend Halsey went for iconic instead of horrific when they dressed as Sonny and Cher.
Kathy Bates has played all sorts of scary characters on American Horror Story from Agnes/The Butcher on American Horror Story: Roanoke to Madame Delphine LaLaurie on American Horror Story: Coven. But her werewolf costume at a recent AHS party was more cuddly than intimidating.
Superstore stars Ben Feldman, Mark McKinney and Nico Santos blended creepy with campy for our No. 8 and No. 9 entries. Click on the right arrow to see McKinney and Santos as those disturbing twins from The Shining and Feldman as Gomez Addams from The Addams Family.
Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba is arguably the kindest and most fair judge on ABC’s competitive ballroom series. But she’s giving top-notch witch vibes as the wicked but misunderstood baddie Maleficent.
Los Angeles Lakers star Dwight Howard is unrecognizable as Thanos. Young basketball fans who got to attend a meet and greet with Howard and his famous teammates definitely took an extra minute to spot the basketball legend.
