So, if you’re still looking for last-minute ideas on what to be, here are some of the outfits that famous faces have donned.

The American singer made headlines this week for dressing up in full Marge Simpson get-up, with bright yellow skin, tall blue hair and a skintight green sequinned dress.

Janelle Monae

The singer, famous for songs including I Like That, painted herself light blue and channelled 1997 Bruce Willis sci-fi The Fifth Element, dressed up as Diva Plavalaguna, the singer in the film.

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly caused a stir by dressing up as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, inspired by the 2022 mini series Pam & Tommy.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton channelled her "childhood icon" Sailor Moon, from the Japanese superheroine anime television series of the same name from the 1990s.

Lili Reinhart, Madelaine Petsch, and Camila Mendes

The trio of actresses from Riverdale did a great impression of the three witches from Hocus Pocus, for which a sequel only hit Disney+ this year, starring original coven Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.
