What you choose to be for Halloween reveals something about your character. If you’re a classic witch, ghost, or mummy, your costume suggests that you are traditional, appreciate the scary aspect of Halloween, and like to stick with convention. If you are a slutty nurse, pirate, or cop, then your costume says, “I am a woman between the ages of 18 and 35 and on this day when I can be anything in the world, I just want to be sexy.” If you dress up as a slutty cheeseburger, ketchup bottle, taco or any other food item/condiment, you are telling the world, “I want to look sexy but I also want to be different than every other scantily clad girl out there so I am going to dress up as something that should never even be considered sexy at all so that I stand out.” If you wear the same outfit year after year and it consists of items that you picked up from your local Goodwill, then you’re telling the world, “I’m cheap.”
Well, celebrities are no different from us normal folks and they came out in full force to celebrate Halloween this past weekend. Here’s a look at some of the costumes they chose, and what message they are sending to the world.
Rachel Zoe as Cher– “Do you know what would be so maje? A Cher costume. Oh my god, it is going to be BA-NA-NAS.”
Kristin Chenoweth as a SWAT team member with Jake Pavelka as a Stormtrooper– “I can’t believe I’m dating a former Bachelor. This is so embarrassing. I know what I’ll do… I’ll dress him in a costume that covers him entirely from head to toe so nobody recognizes him. I wish everyday could be Halloween y’all.”
Neil Patrick Harris as Tweedledee (or maybe Tweedledum) with his husband and their two children as other Alice In Wonderland characters—“I’m a good father and I’m having fun with my adorable family. That’s what Halloween is all about.”
Julianne Hough as Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black— “You know what’s really funny and totally not offensive at all? Blackface.”
Paris Hilton as Miley Cyrus—“I’m desperate for attention so I want to dress up as something that will really get people talking. Hmmm, how about Miley Cyrus? Yeah, that’s good. People are definitely talking about her! But what if people don’t notice me right away? I know…I’ll add some sparkly tights to really draw in their attention. That’s perfect! OMG I am so excited about this costume idea that I almost forgot to take my Valtrex!”
Tara Reid as a Greek Goddess—“I love the Fourth of July. I mean Halloween. It’s Halloween, right? Well whatever day it is, I love a good excuse for a party and a red carpet appearance. Has anybody seen my Xanax? Are there pockets for my cocaine in this outfit?”
Hugh Hefner as Robin Thicke—“Remember when people used to dress up as good old fashioned caveman? Oh wait, those were actual caveman and I’m just remembering my childhood. Who is this lady and what’s going on with her hair? Can she change my diaper? What year is it and where am I? Also, I want more pudding!”
So just remember as you’re putting the final touches on your costume in preparation for Thursday… what you choose to dress up as may reveal more about you than just your cleavage and your ass cheeks! Happy Halloween!
