For those of us who have aged out of trick-or-treating and Halloweekend bar-hopping, or have chosen not to attend any “adult” Halloween parties, there isn’t much aside from watching horror movies and gorging on Halloween candy to look forward to on October 31st. However, if there’s one thing we cynical folk simply adore, it’s watching pop culture icons dress up as other pop culture icons for Halloween.
Despite the recent controversial statement made by SAG-AFTRA, urging those who celebrate the beloved holiday to avoid dressing as characters from “struck content,” meaning that any piece of film or television that does not operate within the guidelines and ordinances of the actors union, including properties such as “Barbie” and “The Little Mermaid” many famous individuals – actors included – opted to still don the iconic pink cowboy Barbie fit as well as their best interpretations of the iconic mermaid. And oh boy, did we gobble it up.
If celebrity Halloween costumes were a televised show, in which audiences called in and voted for their favorites, Heidi Klum once again stole the show. Featuring a costume in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, in which she and a few other performance artists created one large Peacock with moving, human parts. This jaw-dropping, Cronenberg-eque costume was a sight to behold and as always Klum’s Halloween costume is the only thing anyone really cares about.
Year after year, the public is subject to a slew of celebrity Halloween costumes, and in the midst of so much sociopolitical unrest, it’s nice to have something light to focus on and clog our social media timelines instead. This year was no different, with many A-list celebrities reaching back in to the rich pantheon of entertainment, fans were treated to an array of familiar horror characters, Disney Princesses, and even vintage superhero’s.
