21 Halloween Costumes From Real Housewives That Prove These Ladies Go All Out — PHOTOS
The women on Real Housewives are all about making an entrance. They all have a penchant for being the center of attention and they will do whatever it takes to stand out with the best outfit at every event possible. And the same thing applies to themed events and holidays. After looking at photos from the past few years, it is clear that the women of Real Housewives go all out with their Halloween costumes. That's really not surprising since they all have over-the-top personalities and a pretty high budget to help them slay Halloween.
If #HalloweenGoals is a thing, then the Housewives are the epitome of that. These women are not shopping at party stores or pop-up Halloween shops. They are all wearing custom outfits and getting their hair and makeup done by professionals to complement their looks. So, obviously, it's pretty tough for us normal folk to emulate their costumes, but at the very least fans can admire some of their best outfits from the past few years.
Who is the queen of Halloween? I'll let you decide that for yourself. Check out these photos that prove the Real Housewives do not mess around when it comes to dressing up for Halloween.
1. Bethenny Frankel As Marilyn Monroe
It was really hard to recognize Bethenny without her signature dark locks. She really does look like the perfect Marilyn with this costume. I'm just wondering how she can sit down with that bow in the back.
2. Ramona Singer As A Pirate
Ramona looks great in this pirate outfit. She really slayed this Halloween.
3. Melissa Gorga As A Queen
Melissa dressed up as the queen that she is along with her adorable royal family.
4. Sonja Morgan As Marie Antoinette
It does not surprise me at all that Sonja is into Halloween. She even had cake with her to pull off this historic costume. I love it
5. Kyle Richards & Mauricio Umansky As Skeletons
Kyle is working it in her skintight skeleton suit, but it's her husband Mauricio who really steals the show here with that makeup.
6. Bethenny Frankel As A Candy Girl
I doubt that Bethenny actually made that costume, but obviously someone did and it looks like it was a lot of work. I just want to know if the costume is made of real candy because that seems like it could be a sticky situation.
7. Heather Dubrow As Katniss Everdeen
It took me a second to recognize Heather. The normally prim and proper Housewife known as "Fancy Pants" looks like such a badass here. I'm living for it.
8. Melissa Gorga As Cat Woman, Kathy Wakile As An Avatar Character, & Joe Gorga As Snooki
Joe and Kathy are really giving me some #ThrowbackThursday vibes with their costume selections and Melissa looks timelessly great in her catsuit. Work it, girl. I applaud her for lasting a night in that fabric. Now, that is a lot of effort to make.
9. Vicki Gunvalson As Marilyn Monroe & Jeana Keough As A Pirate
Apparently this was Vicki's first Halloween dressing up, according to her caption, but she really did look cute. Plus, I was happy to see two OG Housewives hanging out.
10. Luann de Lesseps As A Nurse
Luann actually used to be a nurse, so dressing like one isn't a major stretch, but then again this is probably not what she was wearing back in the day.
11. Melissa Gorga, Joe & The Fam As Devils (& Poison Ivy)
I don't think that a devil costume is necessarily original, but the family coordination of costumes definitely takes a lot of effort and they managed to look so cute.
12. Lisa Rinna As Kris Jenner
Lisa is a dead ringer for the Kardashian family matriarch in this look. So. On. Point.
13. Sonja Morgan As A Flapper(?)
I'm not 100 percent sure what Sonja is dressing up as in this pic, but she really did dress to the nines with that outfit and wig, so I support it.
14. Caroline Manzo As Alice In Wonderland
Caroline and her husband did the couples costume thing with their Alice in Wonderland inspired Halloween looks.
15. Ramona Singer As A Flapper
Ramona really did it up with this glamorous ensemble and accessories. She looks like she's really from that era!
16. Kandi Burruss In A Dead Presidents Costume
Thank god for the Instagram caption, otherwise I would have no idea that Kandi Burruss was underneath all that makeup.
17. Lisa Rinna As Lucille Ball
Lisa is really killing it in that iconic I Love Lucy look. I wonder if Harry Hamlin went as Ricky that year.
18. Camille Grammer As A Cop
Camille Grammer is definitely not someone to mess with while she's wearing this outfit.
19. Lisa Rinna & Harry Hamlin As Priscilla & Elvis Presley
These two definitely have fun with Halloween. And look at that hair! It's so wild seeing Lisa without her signature cut.
20. Bethenny Frankel As A Rollerskater
This costume takes a lot of commitment. I can't skate, let alone drink a Skinnygirl margarita in skates. Props to Bethenny.
21. Meghan Edmonds As A Racoon
People dress up as furry animals every year. It really is a staple of Halloween, but I've never seen anyone dressed as a raccoon before. Meghan's costume was unique and hilarious.
Now that you've seen 21 great costumes from the Housewives, get out there and have fun with your own!
