COVID-19 scared off most Halloween events last year. And while 2021 is still frightening thanks to the virus’ spread across the country, vaccines are making it possible for celebrities to once again gather for the spooky holiday.
Jamie Lee Curtis set the bar high when she showed up to the Oct. 12 costume party premiere of “Halloween Kills” in a killer get-up with a sweet backstory. She dressed in the costume her late mother Janet Leigh wore as the embezzling murder victim Marion Crane in the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film “Psycho.”
When she showed off her outfit on Instagram she wrote: “Honoring my mother in ALL her gory…I meant glory!”
More stars are showing off their Halloween looks. From scary to funny, topical to classic, these celebrities wore buzzworthy costumes.
The expert in all things home is celebrating Halloween with misused tools. Martha Stewart, along with two friends, got into the holiday spirit on Instagram showing off a DIY gone wrong with a saw affixed to her head.
“The ‘munsters’,” she captioned the post.
JoJo Siwa donned a terrifying look for a Halloween-themed “Dancing With The Stars” on Oct. 25. The YouTube star wore a Pennywise look for her jazz routine with dancing partner Jenna Johnson.
She teased the look on Instagram before the show: “Pennywise hides in a sewer…. Pennywise hides under the stage,” she captioned a photo.
Megan Thee Stallion
Megan Thee Stallion somehow managed to make Pinhead look stunning. The rapper showed off her look from the “Hellraiser” movie franchise on Instagram, quoting from 1996’s “Bloodline.”
“Pain has a face. Allow me to show you. Gentlemen I am pain,” she wrote with the hashtag #hottieween.
Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian
Newly-engaged couple Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian dressed up as rock couple Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen, and the resemblance was scary.
The duo’s mysterious deaths fit the theme. Vicious was accused of murdering Spungen in the bathroom at New York’s Chelsea Hotel, but before the case went to trial, Vicious was found dead on February 2, 1979. The case remains unsolved.
“Throw away the key,” Barker captioned photos on Instagram.
There was bound to be a binge of “Squid Game” costumes this year, and Hayley Kiyoko was first in line.
“The 067th person to dress up as @hoooooyeony in Squid Game for Halloween,” the singer and actress wrote on Instagram, referring to actress HoYeon Jung.
“(Also thanks for convincing me to watch, it was worth getting through the blood and I’m absolutely obsessed🤩),” she added.
“Today” show host Hoda Kotb took her kids out for early trick-or-treating in cheerful costumes: a unicorn, a puppy, the sun, moon and stars.
“We went trick or treating a week early …no one answered the first 2 doors…but on the 3rd door we got a reeses. #nevergiveup,” she captioned her post.
