Countless magazines will tell you that stars are just like us. But if Halloween costumes can be used as any type of measure, famous folks are a bit richer, cooler, and more connected than we are. Even if these celebs didn't all come up with the wildly creative ideas for their getups, they sure look amazing wearing them.
Take Ariana Grande, for instance. Not only was she able to customize the right facial prosthetics to pull off the pig-nosed look from The Twilight Zone's classic "Eye of the Beholder" episode, but she also transformed her home into a black-and-white spiral backdrop to bring that creepy other dimension right to her. Grande wasn't the only celebrity to go all out this Halloween, either.
From Limetown leading lady Jessica Biel, who dressed up as her famous hubby, Justin Timberlake, while he dressed as a microphone, to American Horror Story regular Evan Peters and his girlfriend Halsey channeling Sonny and Cher, these looks are giving us all the inspiration we needed to get in the mood for All Hallows' Eve. Scroll down to see the stars celebrate the spookiest season of the year.
Charlie Cox and Tom Hiddleston
The two MCU superheroes traded costumes just for kicks. Charlie Cox and Tom Hiddleston, who currently share the stage on Broadway's Betrayal, apparently had a marvel-ous time swapping suits, with Cox becoming Loki and Hiddleston dressing up as Daredevil. Cue the spin-off rumors!
Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos, and Ryan Seacrest
It was a full-on family affair as the stars of Live with Kelly and Ryan crew gussied up as The Addams Family. You'll have to look real hard to tell Kelly Ripa apart from her daughter Lola, but there's no mistaking Mark Consuelos, who was perfectly cast as Gomez.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
Don't say "Bye Bye Bye"to Biel's brilliant nod to old-school JT. Timberlake hasn't rocked the ramen noodles since the early 2000s, but his wife has us feeling all the nostalgia.
Speaking of throwbacks, Gabrielle Union left her mark on the big screen in the cheerleading hit Bring It On nearly 20 years ago. This is especially hard to believe because Union has barely aged a day. For added Halloween fun, the actress dressed up as her character from the movie, Isis, and included her 11-month-old daughter, Kaavia.
The cast of black-ish
For this season's Halloween episode of black-ish, stars Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony Anderson, Marsai Martin, Miles Brown, and Marcus Scribner channeled the horror movie Us, and the result was as frightening it was dope. When Saturday Night Live parodied the horror movie, we laughed. When Ross did it, her fans on the 'Gram begged her to stop because it was just a little too accurate.
Evan Peters and Halsey
Actor Evan Peters has appeared in eight out of nine seasons of American Horror Story, so he knows scary. But when it came to dressing up for an AHS Halloween party this year, he and his pop star girlfriend Halsey went for iconic instead of horrific when they dressed as Sonny and Cher.
Stephen Amell and Cassandra Jean Amell
Kathy Bates has played all sorts of scary characters on American Horror Story, from Agnes/The Butcher on American Horror Story: Roanoke to Madame Delphine LaLaurie on American Horror Story: Coven. But her werewolf costume at a recent AHS party was more cuddly than intimidating.

"Where there is no imagination, there is no horror" Thank you to the ghouls & ghosts of New Orleans for having us & to the vampires for pouring us absinthe. And of course Mistress G for getting us in. @witchesbrewneworleans. Special shout out to @nbcsuperstore costumes @peachalix for the heavy lifting
Superstore stars Ben Feldman, Mark McKinney, and Nico Santos blended creepy with campy. Click on the right arrow to see McKinney and Santos as those disturbing twins from The Shining and Feldman as Gomez Addams from The Addams Family.
Carrie Ann Inaba
Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba is arguably the fairest judge on ABC's competitive ballroom series. But she's giving top-notch witch vibes as the wicked but misunderstood baddie Maleficent.
Los Angeles Lakers star Dwight Howard is unrecognizable as Thanos. Young basketball fans who got to attend a meet and greet with Howard and his famous teammates definitely took an extra minute to spot the basketball legend.
