If money wasn’t an issue, what would you wear for Halloween?
Me? I’d pay someone to paint me entirely blue, Mystique-style.
Every year, I am continually fascinated (and amused) by the costumes donned by the rich and famous. Some actors seem to be tired of costumes and opt for simpler ideas, but others fully embrace the “Wear whatever the hell you want” atmosphere of All Hallows’ Eve.
Here are some of my favorite costumes from Halloween 2013. You may notice a tendency for geeky costumes.
Miranda Lambert as The Good Witch of Oz
I want to skip the yellow brick road with Mrs. Blake Shelton.
Adam Baldwin as…Himself? (Special Guest Star: Nathan Fillion‘s Tweet Response)
Nathan Fillion, the reigning Geek King of Twitter, gets one-upped by his previous Firefly co-star. (You don’t know how much it kills me inside to write “previous.” Browncoats unite! And wear a Jayne hat)
Fergie as Elvira & Josh Duhamel as Rocky Horror‘s Riff Raff
Personally, I don’t think this celeb couple has ever looked more awesome. Josh Duhamel, kudos to you for doing a costuming classic.
Glee’s Naya Rivera as Carmen Sandiego
Tell me, where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
Cindy Crawford & Randy Gerber as Slash and Axl Rose
Nicole Richie as Danny deVito from Twins
Matt Lauer as Pamela Anderson in Baywatch
I can never un-see this. It’s simultaneously horrifying and amusing.
Felicia Day as a Steampunk Peter Pan
Felicia, you’re perfect in every way. Can we be friends?
Misha Collins as Castiel
Oh, Misha. Misha, Misha, Misha.
Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka & the Twins
Currently dying from cuteness overdose.
Mark Gatiss as the World’s Favorite Consulting Detective
I don’t know if the Godtiss actually did this costume for Halloween, but it is awesome nonetheless. (It’s a wonderful/terrible thing that His Royal Poshness, Mycroft, wore a deerhunter before Series 3 returned *cries* BBC give it back!).
Also, because there isn’t nearly enough Mark Gatiss in the world, here is an instructional video from good old Uncle Mycroft on how to make authentic fake blood. So next year you really can scare the sh*t out of your neighbor’s kids.
Disclaimer: I own none of these images. Or the celebrities. However, I’d really like to have some of their costumes.
