Time to get spooky
Halloween season is upon us, and that means one thing: it’s time to wear the “spooky” costume that’ll get you the most likes on Instagram.
And celebs are no different from us; only sometimes they have the means to take their costumes above and beyond what will usually suffice for the standard Halloween piss-up. Here’s a round up of all the best celeb costumes from this year:
Josh Homme and Matt Helders
Josh Homme went all out as The Joy of Painting’s late host Bob Ross, whereas Arctic Monkey’s drummer dressed as Queen’s Brian May:
The xx’s Romy got in the spirit of things as a “catastrophe cowgirl”.
In her own words, Gaga kept it “classic” this year, as a sheet ghost.
Samuel L. Jackson snapped this picture of Bruce Willis and his assistant dressed up as the terrifying Grady twins from ‘The Shining’.
The rapper dressed up as legendary comedian Richard Pryor before heading out to a club event.
The actress may have just won Halloween, with her tongue in cheek reference to her character’s demise in 1995 film ‘Seven’ (when Paltrow’s character’s head is sent to her husband in a box).
A Game of Thrones fan, Jason Derulo went all out as The Night King:
Charli went as Jane Fonda’s titular character Barbarella from the 60s science fiction film:
Baby Haim got into the (not so) spooky spirit dressing as Baz Luhrmann’s Juliet.

The singer paid tribute to country icon Dolly Parton in her costume:
Alba shared a photo of her and pal Kelly Sawyer dressed as Juno and Paulie from cult comedy film ‘Juno’.

Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman
The actors paid homage to ‘Fight Club’, dressing as Marta Singer and Tyler Durden.
