5 Celebrity Halloween Costumes That Are Downright Crazy

We picture celebrities living in their own little world where good cheekbones grow on trees, it rains money, and everybody knows at least one of the Kardashians. Maybe that's why we get such a kick out of seeing the rich and famous enjoying plebeian activities. It confirms that, status and wealth aside, deep down at the core of our humanity, we are all of us just a bunch of frivolous assholes. And at no time is this more apparent than during the official frivolous asshole holiday that is Halloween. Just look at ...

Seriously, if you don't know about the German model's epic outfits, then welcome. It's 2018, and everything sucks except Heidi Klum's Halloween costumes.

Referred to as the "Queen of Halloween," Klum spends hours on makeup, prosthetics, and possibly witchcraft to transform herself into actual cartoon characters each year. She told Parade back in 2013 that she would rather stay home than be caught out in a mediocre Halloween costume, and boy does it show. Here's her costume from 2011:

The entire costume was airbrushed makeup, and in keeping with the macabre, she was wheeled into her party on an autopsy table. The year before that, she transformed herself into an eight-foot robot on stilts, because "tall" is never tall enough for a supermodel.

In 2013, Klum turned 40. Most of us would simply get drunk and throw an ill-advised punch at a bathroom mirror, but Klum turned the whole thing into a joke at her own expense:

In 2016, she got a couple of probably all-too-willing models together to "clone" herself.

But she's gotten tired of that tack, so last year she outdid herself with a "Thriller" costume that might actually be better than the one in the original video:

Al Roker

Even though the entire cast of The Today Show dresses up for Halloween every year, no one does it quite like weatherman Al Roker. You might know Roker for his catchphrase "Here's what's happening in your neck of the woods," or as the guy who set the Guinness World Record for the longest uninterrupted weather report ever. But what should be his legacy is his fantastic Halloween efforts.

Here he is dressed as Mr. T for The Today Show's Halloween broadcast in 2013. Even though his costume was a solid 9/10, he admitted that he would, in fact, probably pull a punch.

Little did we know that was only the beginning of a reign of daytime TV dress-up domination. In 2014, he teamed up with former fellow anchor Lester Holt to cosplay Jake and Elwood Blues from The Blues Brothers.

This Charlie Brown getup was from Halloween 2015, and no, those aren't his real ears.

In 2016, he channeled Steve Urkel:

Katy Perry

We're used to Katy Perry dressing up in larger-than-life costumes on stage, but she doesn't hold back on Halloween either. In 2008, Perry first made headlines with her Freddie Mercury costume. In 2012, she dressed up as Jane Lane to Shannon Woodward's Daria, complete with cartoonish accessories you won't believe aren't Photoshop.
