Remember when Scott Disick dressed up as Patrick Bateman from American Psycho? Yeah … we’re still trying to recover from that. Oh, and how about that time Perez Hilton was Miley Cyrus? Eerily accurate!
Of course, there are other celebrities who wanted to be scary and, well, just fell short. “When I was a kid, my family was really poor and I remember one Halloween I wanted to dress up really scary, and my parents came home with a duck costume,” novelist R.L. Stine once said. “I wore that costume for years! I hated it.”
Matthew Broderick, on the other hand, admitted to being terrified of his toddler. “[My son] wants to be Batman, and he wants the Batman costume that comes in the mail,” he divulged. “It has fake muscles in it, which is very disconcerting on a four-year-old.”
In 2019, former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham dished on the spooky season she had planned alongside daughter Sophia Abraham. Needless to say, the ladies went all out for the MTV alum’s “favorite” holiday.
“We mixed it up, we’re going to all the theme parks in California — Horror Nights, Scary Farm — you name it, and we’re doing it,” the reality TV mama dished to Life & Style at the time. “We just did Morticia and Wednesday [Addams] the other night at Horror Nights. I always say ‘let’s do something together, let’s ensemble’ … but Sophia likes to do her own thing a lot.”
Heidi Klum, who is notorious for her epic Halloween costumes that usually involve prosthetics, explained why she always throws her annual party in New York City versus California. After sitting in hair and makeup for “14 hours,” the supermodel is ready to party the night away.
“In [L.A.] people are like, it’s 10, 11 o’clock and they’re like, ‘Yeah, I gotta go night-night, I gotta go to bed,’” she explained to Entertainment Tonight in October 2022. “In New York, they really party, they’re up all night, five, six o’clock in the morning. This is more my speed! And for Halloween, I need a real night out with everyone.”
