These Are The 7 Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes of 2020

COVID-19 be damned, famous people donned some impressive looks this year.


COVID-19 certainly put a damper on what should have been a banner year for Halloween — on a Saturday night as daylight ended during an actual blue moon — but people adapted. Parents rigged up contraptions for socially distanced candy distribution and found ways to integrate masks into their kids’ Halloween costumes.

And the celebrities, both those with kids of their own and those whose natural predilection for dressing up and pretending to be someone or something they aren’t, also made the most of the holiday.

Neil Patrick Harris and his family opted for a quartet of costumes inspired by Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Gideon was Charlie Bucket, Harper was Veruca Salt, Harris was “Slugworth,” and his husband David was Wonka himself. The foursome appeared in an Instagram picture with an impressive level of production value, the smokestacks of the Wonka factory looming in the background.

Dwayne Johnson tried to dress up as Mufasa with a premade lion costume, but he couldn’t quite fit his physique into the costume. Only the furry hat fit, and it really only kind of fit.

Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, and their youngest Kaavia James Union Wade dressed up as the three ingredients that make up a s’more in a delightfully DIY family get-up.

Lil Nas X dressed up as Nikki Minaj in a decidedly not-DIY costume that won serious points for accuracy, particularly when you compare it to what Minaj actually looked like in the “Super Bass” video.

Colin Hanks paid homage to The Sopranos with a Paulie Walnuts get-up that got the details right, from the shoes to the sweatsuit to the gold jewelry. But it’s the hair — a slicked-back, grey-streaked hairstyle that could only look good on a New Jersey mobster — that really tied the outfit together.

Lizzo went super-topical, dressing up as the fly that landed on Mike Pence‘s head during the vice presidential debate for one of her costumes. The accompanying video was a necessary addition, showing as it does the singer dancing on Pence’s head in a way that the famously puritanical VP would not approve of.

The Weeknd dressed up as Sherman Klump with a prosthetic that rivaled the one Eddie Murphy himself used in The Nutty Professor. He also nailed the goofy grin Murphy brought to the role, as evidenced by this Instagram snap.

Everyone is hoping that Halloween 2021 will feel a lot more normal, but you can be confident that even if we’re in the middle of the seventh wave of COVID-19 the celebs will find a way to dress to impress.
