The 18 Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes Ever

Listen: Halloween is the best. I've never met anyone that doesn't like Halloween, and if I ever do, I'm going to punch them right in the neck. And then again in the face.

In case you couldn't tell, I'm very passionate about my love for Halloween. Why wouldn't I be? Halloween has all the candy, the spooky stories, the scary movies and even my neighbors' annoying kids being gone most of the night.

The Halloween costumes are the best part, though, because you get to hide behind a mask or a cape and maybe use a silly voice, and for one day, no one can judge you.

Halloween costumes are especially great because you get to learn so much about people based on their costume ideas. The choice of character, how they create the costume, how much skin they show, whether they commit to the characters' traits, whether they go for gory, scary or silly. It's very informative and a fantastic look at the character behind the costumed character.

Even celebs love to get in on the Halloween fun. Because they like having fun, they love attention, they're used to dressing up.
