Halloween is a holiday taken very seriously by many in the LGBT+ community, so much so that many even refer to it as gay Christmas. Here are our top 10 LGBT+ Halloween costumes by queer celebrities!
Lil Nas X
The chart-topping rap star Lil Nas X wore head to toe pink and bling, complete with a hot pink flip-phone that would make even an early ’00s Paris Hilton jealous in his recreation of a look previously done by New York rapper Cam’ron.
Jonathan Van Ness
Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness looked absolutely puurrrrfect as a cute kitty, including a real cat for scale.
Make-up artist Patrick Starrr shook the internet with his terrifyingly impressive rendering of Shrek. A team of make-up artists applied full prosthetics to Starrr’s face to transform the beauty guru into the green ogre.
Singer Halsey was indeed one of the beautiful people as she wore a white latex bodysuit, red wig and contact lenses emulating one of fellow singer Marilyn Manson’s iconic looks.
Adult film star Ty Mitchell donned a playful two-piece costume constructed out of hand fans and a pair of devil horns. Ty dubbed the cheeky outfit “only fans”.
Drag Race UK’s The Vivienne bore an uncanny resemblance to Bette Midler’s Winifred Sanderson from the classic Halloween flick Hocus Pocus. The fabulous replica look was completed with facial prosthesis… or is that just her nose?
Miley and Cody
New couple Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson were practically attached at the hip as they rocked their post-punk Billy Idol and Perri Lister couple’s look. Miley posted multiple photos and videos of the pair to her Instagram in their matching all-black ensembles, including a photoset of her doing Cody’s make-up for the night. The pair made sure to snap lots of pictures before stripping down to lingerie at an afterparty later that night!
Rapper Young M.A also took to Instagram yesterday to share her own cute couples outfit, dapperly dressed as the Beast with a beautiful Belle by her side.
Social media star Rickey Thompson’s Instagram feed has been bursting at the seams this past week with multiple Halloween looks, some of which other LGBT+ celebrities have also worn in the past. In his latest video, Ricky and friend Denzel Dion performed a lip-sync as Béyonce and Jay-Z.
Neil Patrick Harris
Finally, the king of Halloween Neil Patrick Harris and his family yet again went in co-ordinated outfits, this year opting to dress as iconic artists!
