Glenn Close as Trump binging fast food and more celebrity Halloween costumes

Halloween is my favorite holiday. It involves my two favorite things, candy and costumes. This year I got zero trick or treaters partly because I moved outside town, but also of course due to Halloween being canceled. My son gave out candy, masked, to kids outside at an event at his school. I had two Halloween events over Zoom, a party where we had amazing gossip trivia, and a murder mystery event. So I got to do some events, even if they were much different than usual. I missed seeing kids dressed up and it felt like a waste of Halloween on a Saturday, but I just checked and it falls on Sunday next year! That’s something to look forward to. Here are some celebrity Halloween costumes, shared over social media. I’m only talking about my favorites and am skipping the people phoning it in. You know what I mean, the ones dressed up as cute bees or cats. Thanks to People for compiling most of these.

Glenn Close did Trump binging McDonalds and Diet Coke. This wins for me because of her facial expressions. I also like how she’s telegraphing him losing and freaking out.

Lizzo was the fly on Mike Pence’s head and this cracked me up so much. It’s dumb but so funny. This is better than an SNL skit.

The Weeknd’s Nutty Professor is amazing! I absolutely love this. He must have had a whole team.

Sarah Michelle Gellar did Effie Trinket. This is a great costume too because you know immediately who she is.

Lil Nas X cosplayed Nicki Minaj!

Ciara was Nicki Minaj too! She also did Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B and Janet Jackson just this year and Russell Wilson was Busta Rhymes. Last year they were Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Saweetie recreated the 2002 Bootylicious single cover from Destiny’s Child! I like how she acknowledged her team.

Bella Hadid had pop art makeup and her caption has a whole weird backstory about trapping you in an art piece. My friend Ameerah did pop art makeup too. This is pretty inventive and it’s a look that’s especially good for video chatting because you can see it on camera.

January Jones was Miss Hannigan from Annie. This is so on brand for her.

Celine Dion was Nanny McPhee! Love an ugly Halloween look.

Speaking of that, Jennifer Garner did the old lady emoji and she turned it into a sponcon for Neutrogena! Respect.

Courteney Cox made fun of her Scream bangs.

Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Wade and their family were s’mores components. This is adorable.

Neil Patrick Harris and his family did Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I bet they hired someone to Photoshop this perfectly for them. The photoshoot must have taken about an hour to get those poses right too.

Hope you had a good Halloween and ate all the best candy! Fingers crossed that we’ll have a normal-ish Halloween next year – on Sunday!

    If Lizzo wasn’t on a Kim Kardashian-esque vacation with a huge group of people, I would vote for her.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Is she really? I hate when celebs I actually like do stupid things. I expect it from Kim, but Lizzo doing the same is dissapointing.

  2. Ann says:

    Lizzo’s IG story on Halloween was hilarious! It was pretty weird and once I realized what was happening I could not stop laughing.

  3. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Glenn Close for the win

  4. SamC says:

    NPH’s son is a ringer for the kid in the original Willy Wonka movie!

    Otherwise, I must be too old as I just don’t get spending a ton of money on costumes, costume changes, makeup and hair artists, etc. to simply post on IG?

    I did laugh at Lizzo as the fly…

    • ChillyWilly says:

      He looks a lot like the kid who played Charlie!

    • Esmom says:

      SamC, Exactly what I came here to say! And they got the hair absolutely perfect.

      I’m also not a big costume/makeup person but for some it is a serious obsession. I get it, we all have our things. And I enjoy looking at them all. My friend just did an utterly perfect “cool” Sandy from Grease. But it was disconcerting to see how many people were partying as if there’s no pandemic. Sigh.

      I thought the s’mores were the cutest.

    Bella ‘illustrates’ the perfect time for winged eyeliner.

    These are all so good, but Lizzo had me rolling! 😂
    My city still did trick or treat this year. I put out individual treat bags on the porch around my decorations and a sign for them to help themselves. We didn’t have many kids at all this year. I think most parents did something different this year bc of the virus which is smart.

    • SamC says:

      My neighborhood had more than usual. I was talking with one of the parents and she said they brought their kids to our village just to drive around and look at the decorations. When they realized so many people had put out candy, had chutes, etc., they parked and took their kids around. Kids were thrilled to trick or treat and the parents were so appreciative people pivoted and made it just as fun.

        We put out individual baggies of candy (and separate allergy-sensitive prizes) on a table in the driveway; our whole block did individual treat bags or touchless candy delivery. Many people had hand sanitizer on their outdoor candy tables and were masked if they were outside.

        We took our daughter (8) around with her BFF who lives next door and his mom; we trust them and know they are making good choices. No knocking on doors, everything was outside, and I incorporated fancy gloves and a mask into her costume. My son (13) likewise went with 1 friend whose parents we trust and know have been cautious, and wore a “real” mask under his costume mask as well as gloves. They had fun in a way that minimized risk.

        We put out 90-100 baggies of candy and all of it was taken! I’m sure some kids took more than one, but even so, I figure we had at least 50–75 trick-or-treaters. This is our 3rd Halloween in this neighborhood; year 1 I drastically underbought candy and had to raid the kids’ buckets and last year I bought a ton and we handed every bit out. This year was probably about a third less than a “usual” year.

    I wore a big black caftan and dark lipstick. Aka my Scorpio season uniform 😂 we had no trick or treaters, no zoom events. It was a bummer, but oh well.

    Btw gossip trivia sounds AMAZING

  8. lucy2 says:

    I love the S’mores!
    Glenn for the win though.

    I only ate 1 piece of candy, because I had to put the rest out and it all went! I usually have a couple hundred kids, and while it was less than usual, I think some children helped themselves to a bit more than they should have. I put it all outside and stayed inside, so who knows. I only went out to refill when there was no one else out there.

    Glenn Close as Trump – priceless!

    I saw Glenn Close at the weekend and couldn’t stop laughing.

    Glenn Close wins this for sure! Hilarious!
