Funny Halloween Costumes Inspired by Celebs Because, Hey, You Can Be a Lobster Too

With endless amounts of money comes great Halloween costumes. That's how that quote goes, right? It's absolutely true, and no one knows that better than celebrities. It makes perfect sense. If you spend most days in front of a camera wearing clothes that belong to another person or character, Halloween must make you feel right at home. The best thing about seeing our favorite celebrities dress up is the funny and ridiculous costumes that come out of it. When Halloween rolls around, we are guaranteed to see some celebs opt for silly instead of sexy. And even when they try to be sexy, it can still turn out hilarious.

If you're like me, you are freaking out about Halloween right now. You probably have a general idea of what you want to be, but it's time to really pull it all together. You can pull inspiration from Kimye, or maybe Lord Scott Disick is more your jam. Bring back preppy with some Pitch Perfect uniform outfits — and begin doing your vocal warmups now — or fall in love with Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace all over again in The Fault In Our Stars- inspired costumes.

But if you want to get silly, stick with me, kid. I got your back.

Nicki Minaj — Minimalist Sexy Cop

You might be thinking that this Halloween costume is more sexy than funny, but I beg to differ. What's more hilarious than this outfit being Nicki Minaj's go-to as her 2013 Halloween costume? Just imagine any cop you know (preferably over the age of 50) sporting this gorgeous get-up. It's hilarious.

Copy the look:

Remember, this is minimalist sexy cop. Just roll on those fishnets, strap a bunch of studded belts around your body, duct tape those nipples for decency's sake, and grab a pair of handcuffs just laying around your room. You're all set.

Sir Patrick Stewart — Lobster

Sir Patrick Stewart's Twitter is an absolute joy to behold. You never know when you'll get a picture of him chilling with his BFF Sir Ian McKellan, an adorable selfie, or a picture of him wearing a lobster costume in the bath. He is what Twitter fanboy dreams are made of.

Copy this look:

Congrats, you're a lobster. But unless your face is actually Sir Patrick Stewart's face, you will not be able to pull this look off nearly as well as he can.

Tom Brady — The Cowardly Lion

Tom Brady and Gisele Budchen somehow managed to make themselves look even cuter together by dressing up as the Cowardly Lion and Dorothy last Halloween. Lucky for you, it's super simple to copy Brady's beastly ensemble.

Copy this look:

First you need to wrap yourself up in a few fuzzy bathroom runners and then you put a mop on your head. The hardest part of the entire costume is finding someone as gorgeous as Gisele to bring to the Halloween party.

Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka — Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum

Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, and the little ones, Gideon and Harper, are probably the best celebrity family when it comes to doing group Halloween costumes. NPH and Burtka let the little ones take center stage here as Alice and the Mad Hatter, while they went for the cheerful and dim-witted Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

Copy this look:

This one is all about reusing your pieces. Each of these items could totally work in a normal wardrobe, but when you add a red hat with a tiny flag to a yellow polo, white vest, blue bow tie, and red pants, you have truly fallen down the rabbit hole.

Matt Lauer — Baywatch Babe

A classic Halloween costume is the Baywatch Babe. Matt Lauer took it upon himself to wear this costume last year and oh boy, was I surprised to see it. Hilarious right?! Kinda horrifying, RIGHT?! Spooky! Scary!

Copy this look:

To make this look work, you need the iconic red bathing suit, an inflatable float, and a long blonde wig. Don't worry about being self conscious in this outfit because there is literally not a single chance that you will look worse than Matt Lauer does in drag. It's just not possible.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck — Duck Dynasty

It's a tough job to be a cast member of Duck Dynasty for Halloween, but I guess someone has to do it. If you're Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the easiest way to be a Robertson is to throw on a beard and a bandana.

Copy this look:

You've got your beard, a red bandana printed with ducks, and a Bible. The trick to this costume is to not read the Bible or understand what is says about loving thy neighbor, like, at all, and then just run your mouth off to anyone who will listen to you about things you don't really understand!

Just kidding! Just open your mouth and shove some candy corn in there. Happy Halloween!
