Bes queer celebrity halloween costumes

Every year, we are so excited to see what our favourite celebrities are going to dress up as for Halloween, and we were not disappointed this year as some queer celebrities put together some amazing costumes!

Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris and his family always win at Halloween, but this year they really outdid themselves with this spooky graveyard scene.

The family went as ghosts from the Haunted Mansion ride at Disney to mark the eerie occasion, and pulled it off perfectly!

Ellen Degeneres

Queen of comedy and daytime television Ellen Degeneres put together a hilarious costume this year, dressing up as a contestant from the bachelor.

Meet Kelllly D! The talk show host, 60, decided to create her own contestant instead of impersonating an existing one, and did an amazing job as her costume was complete with a long low-cut silver gown and fake boobs.

“Listen, ladies, I didn’t come to make friends, and I didn’t come to make toast. I came for two things: to get a man and to drink tequila. And I’m out of tequila,” she proclaimed as she kicked off the comedic skit.

Gus Kenworthy

American Olympians Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon have become major best friend goals, and Gus took this to another level as he decided to dress up as Adam for Halloween, becoming “Adam Ripoff”.

Adam then responded to Gus’ tweet, saying “We finally did each other” accompanied by a cheeky eggplant emoji.


“Oh yeah… we went there,” Halsey posted as she served us this epic DC superhero Poison Ivy costume.

Jess Glynn

The Hold My Hand songstress dressed up as the iconic Elle Driver from Kill Bill while attending the KISS Haunted House Party 2018, and did so perfectly!

Harry Styles

Harry Styles’ Elton John impersonation was so spot on that even the legend himself said he was “LOVING his Dodger Stadium costume.”

Rita Ora

Honestly, it took us a while to realise that this was not actually Post Malone.

It must have taken her HOURS to get those face tattoos just right.

James Kavanagh

Social media star turned TV presenter James Kavanagh has us shook as he dressed up as… his cat.

James dressed up as his Sphynx cat, Princess Diana Kavanagh, and his outfit was complete with grey body paint and pearl collar. Honestly, we are shook.

Adam Lambert

The singer gave us serious spooky vibes with his devil outfit, complete with red contact lenses, sparkly devil horns, red eye-shadow, and a killer smize!

Frankie Grande

Ariana Grande’s brother slayed Halloween this year, as he went as a silver troll!

The star sparkled as he posted photos of his epic costume, complete with troll hair and silver body paint, to Instagram.

Sharon Needles

The RuPaul’s Drag Race star went super spooky with her impersonation of Other Mother from Coraline.

Lucy Kennedy’s nephew

I mean, he’s not a queer celebrity, but we could not write this list without including Lucy Kennedy’s nephew, who dressed up as Ireland’s Got Talent judge Michelle Visage.

And Michelle LOVED it, reposting the photo saying “look at this sassy angel!”

Heidi Klum

Again, she isn’t technically a queer celebrity, but she is definitely an ally! And no list of best Halloween costumes would be complete without the queen of Halloween now, would it?

Heidi Klum Shrek

The model dressed up as Princess Fiona from Shrek and served us some LOOKS.
