Halloween is all about tricks and treats, but this year several celebrities are adding “twerk” to the mix. That’s because the Miley Cyrus VMA-inspired costume has already become a very popular one, as everyone from Paris Hilton to Joan Rivers have been snapped in a twerking teddy bear get-up. (Our personal favorite: Hugh Hefner and his wife Crystal Harris’s version, because everyone knows it takes two to twerk.)
According to Yahoo Search, some of the most-searched Halloween costume searches this year include “minion costume,” “zombie costume” “Catwoman costume,” “fox costume” and “Alice in Wonderland costume.” We decided to do a Hollywood Halloween check, to see if the stars are following the trends.
Halloween is a family affair for Neil Patrick Harris, his fiancé David Burtka, and their two kids.The entire clan coordinated in “Alice in Wonderland”-themed outfits for a recent Studio City bash. The proud papas dressed as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, while 3-year old twins Harper and Gideon transformed into a pint-sized Alice and White Rabbit. This is the third year the famous family has channeled a classic movie, according to E Online. In 2011 they dressed as characters from “Peter Pan,” and last year they went down the yellow brick road with a “Wizard of Oz” ensemble.
Speaking of awesome “Alice in Wonderland” costumes, MTV stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWOW” Farley took a page from two chapters of the Lewis Carroll classic. First, the duo dressed up as the White Queen and the Queen of Hearts for the Night of the Living Drag event in New York. Then it was a costume change as they also turned into Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
“Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his hubby Justin Mikita are partners — in crime fighting. The newlyweds dressed as Batman and Robin for a Hollywood party (hey, it’s not Catwoman, but close enough), but it’s not the first time the sitcom star has donned a superhero costume. For a 2010 Halloween-themed episode of his Emmy-winning ABC comedy, Ferguson bulked up in a Spider-Man costume. He told the Los Angeles Times, “The Spider-Man scene from the Halloween episode was my favorite to shoot thus far for the sheer fact that I was scaling down a wall in a Spider-Man costume. I will never in my life be cast in a movie where I am able to wear a super hero costume and perform my own stunts. It was like I got to live a dream for a day.”
Ferguson’s “Modern Family” stepbrother Rico Rodriguez dressed like a zombie for the Hub’s Halloween bash, but he was more cute than creepy. The same can’t be said for Guns ‘N’ Roses guitarist Slash, who was downright dead-looking in his zombie getup for an L.A. party. Slash’s wife Perla Ferrar made for an equally eerie party partner.
And the fox says David Spade makes a very sly fox. Ylvis’s viral YouTube hit “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” has spawned a popular costume idea this Halloween, and the comic took it on for Kate Hudson’s Halloween party. After the party, the comedian posted an Instagram pic with this caption: “I found out what the fox says. Its belvedere and diet coke. He said it all night.”
