The Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes of 2013


Who better to pull out all the stops on Halloween than people with tons of money to spend on costumes and people to help with hair and makeup? Though there were some notable exceptions, 2013 had a fairly well-outfitted crop of celebrity revelers. We’ve assembled a highlight reel of famous people dressed up as lots of other famous people — topped, of course, by the Honey Boo Boo clan. Click through for a look at the various reality stars, musicians, and crustaceans the rich and famous choose to be when they’re not being themselves. If nothing else, we now know a certain ex-boy band member is a big fan of Wayne’s World.

The Honey Boo Boo Family as the Kardashians

All other group costumes can quit now.

Miley Cyrus as Lil’ Kim

Look guys, it is possible to dress up as someone of a different race without being horrendously offensive!

Heidi Klum as an Old Woman

Yup, that’s Heidi Klum under all those prosthetics. Terrifying, no?

Matt Lauer as Pam Anderson’s Baywatch Character

And Carmen Electra, but more importantly, Matt Lauer in drag.

Patrick Stewart as a Lobster

Entry #1 in our soon-to-be-launched Tumblr, picturesofpatrickstewartlookingadorableinabathtub.

Lance Bass and Friends as the Wayne’s World Cast

Combining Halloween and #tbt in one fell swoop.

Ellen DeGeneres as Nicki Minaj

Points for near-perfect outfit replication, cardigan underboob and all.

Nicole Richie as Danny Devito in Twins

Bonus points for recreating the original poster on Instagram.

Paris Hilton as Miley Cyrus

Less for the Miley costume itself than for the fact that PARIS HILTON had one of this year’s most spot-on Miley costumes.
