Yesterday, we covered some of the worst, most offensive celeb Halloween costumes. Now let’s take a moment to appreciate the brave, the proud, the bold who ventured forth to wow at Halloween with wit, poise, and creativity. If they can do it, we can do it, too!
Let’s kick off these celeb halloween costume wins with this amazing cosplay by none other than Jane Lynch. In 2014, she dressed up as Sgt. Calhoun, the very character she voiced for Pixar’s “Wreck-It Ralph”. How awesome is that?!
Rihanna and her buddies went all-out as heroes in their half-shells, stepping out to celebrate Halloween at the Opus Club in NYC, back in 2014. Turtle (girl) power!
The family that cosplays together, stays together, as evidenced by David Burtka and celeb hubby Neil Patrick Harris. They won best costume for their classic Batman homage, together with their kids as Batman and Batgirl.
In 2013, Iggy azalea killed it with an update chic version of Disney’s Cruela De Vil. She even brought her dalmatian Lucky to complete the look!
Katy Perry’s costume from last year is giving us serious munchies. Dressed up as a gigantic Flaming Cheeto and completing the look with an adorbs cheeto bag makes us want to go Om-Nom-Noming down the Halloween treat trail!
Or how about this sweet-as-can-be mother-and-daughter duo? Here’s Beyonce and her daughter Blue paying tribute to the King of Pop Michael Jackson, with mom dressed up as Janet Jackson.
And finally, let’s cap this Win list off with someone on our previous hit list who learned from her mistakes and did good this time around, Supermodel Ms. Heidi Klum.
2014 saw Heidi Klum metamorphose into this gorgeous butterfly. Every detail and approach to the costume, from her prosthetics to her armatures down to the layers of colorful bodysuits and wings, this is truly proof why she is dubbed the Queen of Halloween. Just look at her track record!
2013 saw her aged 50 years more.

2012 saw her rise as the Queen of the Nile. Who needs makeup when you can adorn your face with rhinestones?
There there was that time in 2011 when she and Seal looked like runaway extras from “Planet Of The Apes”…

… as well as an anatomically-correct human figure sans skin to pay homage to the Bodies event within the same year.
My favourite Heidi Klum costume was definitely this one. pic.twitter.com/VuN4NZiBl4

In 2010, she fulfilled all of Thierry Mugler’s fembot fantasies (with a few additional feet of height to boot).

2009 was the year that she stepped right out of a Grimm’s fairy tale dressed as one of their crow creatures.

Jump back to 2007; everyone wanted to be the cat to Heidi’s Meow.
