Though this costume was from a few years ago, it’s still a classic. If you’re looking for something easy yet fun for next year’s costume party, this look is a good one. Grab some leather pants and a black top, throw on some red shoes and lipstick, tease your hair, and you’re good to go!

To be fair, if we had abs like this we would also go as Cher…

Love her or hate her, Paris Hilton did a pretty spot-on rendition of Princess Jasmine. Unclear on why her boyfriend went on as a gladiator and not Aladdin, but that’s okay. Minor details.

 

Adele as a clown?

Happy Early Halloween & Happy Birthday Gorgeous ❤️

We’re not 100% sure what Adele is supposed to be. A clown, perhaps? Either way, we’re loving her over-the-top eye makeup and shimmery gown.

While it may be too late for this year’s Halloween, store these ideas and you’ll be ready to snag all of the top costume contest prizes when next year rolls around.
