Ah Halloween, the greatest time of year for candy-lovers and costume fanatics alike! Getting dressed up for a costume party doesn’t happen too often, so when I get the chance I like to go all out on a wild and fun outfit that will be talked about for months to come (a personal favourite was when I dressed as Jon Snow, complete with an Ikea faux fur cape and a shaggy beard). With Halloween just a few short days away, there’s no better time than now to start thinking about what to dress up as! Without further ado, here are some of the best celebrity costumes to inspire your Halloween 2018.
Heidi Klum as The Werewolf From Thriller
No Halloween is complete without hearing Thriller at least six times. Supermodel Heidi Klum put aside her heels and took that to the next level with her werewolf costume that’s equal parts creepy and fierce.

Joe Keery as Harry Potter
Stranger Things is a great Halloween series to binge, so Joe (who plays Steve Harrington) knows a thing or two about the holiday. His Harry Potter costume is giving off strong Goblet of Fire vibes, complete with tousled flowing locks that Harry was known for that year.

Lady Gaga as Edward Scissorhands
If you’ve yet to watch Tim Burton’s iconic film, you may not be able to tell the difference between Lady Gaga’s epic costume and Johnny Depp’s original character. Trust us, this costume is that good.

Rihanna as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Group costumes are always a safe bet, and Rihanna is even a fan! Here, she enlisted the help of some pals to pull off a fashion-forward interpretation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Beyonce & Jay-Z as Barbie & Ken
For some couples inspo, look no further than one of the greatest power duos of our time. Beyonce and Jay-Z (with a little help from daughter Blue Ivy!) pulled off the classic 1950’s Barbie and Ken look, and even packaged themselves up in boxes for that collector’s feel.

Lauren Conrad as Cruella De Vil
Another celeb who loves celebrating Halloween is style icon Lauren Conrad. Her Cruella costume is as chic as it is scary, especially if you’re a Dalmatian.

Neil Patrick Harris as Obi Wan Kenobi
NPH and his adorable family are no strangers to elaborate group costumes. One of my favourites is their take on the classic Star Wars characters in Luke, Leia, Han Solo and Obi Wan outfits.

Katy Perry as a Cheeto
Katy Perry may just be my hero because of this amazing costume. Gone are any sexy numbers or offensive cultural appropriations, and instead we have her crunchy, cheesy Cheeto costume to brighten our Halloween nights.
