We love Halloween here at heatworld, and if we were celebrities, we'd 100 per cent go full out every single year.

We'd hire a glam squad, source the BEST costume there is and happily mince our way through a crowd of paparazzi calling our name.

Come to think of it, Halloween must be a difficult season for a pap; how do they ever know who anybody is? Heidi Klum undergoes a complete metamorphosis in the name of spooky season every October.

Yes, that's her.

As you can see, Heidi in particular takes Halloween DEADLY (see what we did there?) seriously. It's RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars levels of serving and we are constantly slain every season.

Year after year, lavish celebrity Halloween costumes (90 percent of them coming from Heidi Klum's camp) give us inspiration for our own pathetic, mortal looks. Ours obviously pale in comparison, but to be fair, we don't have glam squads on pay roll.

Anyway, here's a little inspiration from some of fierce faves...

Check out: the best celebrity Halloween costumes to inspire you

Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope as Chucky and Bride of Chucky

YES, WE WANT TO PLAY. We're getting a little fed up with disappointing horror reboots, but we're backing this one.

Binky Felstead as Pink Ranger

Last Halloween, Binky Felstead attended parties dressed as the Power Rangers’ own Pink Ranger! The Made in Chelsea star was joined by her children India and Wolfie, who are big Power Rangers fans – it’s mummy morphin' time.

Ella Rae Wise as Chucky

TOWIE's Ella Rae Wise came to PLAY.

Kim Kardashian as Mystique

BLUE! Sorry, BOO! If Harry Styles can blag his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, why not a Kardashian? Not a bad audition, Kim.

Jade Thirlwall as Marge Simpson

Although this is such a look, really all you’d need to recreate it is a wig and a green dress or boob tube (who doesn’t have one of them?). Then, rent an orange jumpsuit and there you go - you’ve got a couples costume. That is, if Marge and Sideshow Bob were a couple in an alternate universe.

Kylie Jenner as Elvira


From Kylie to Kyvira. At least Kylie Minogue will be happy.

Vanessa Hudgens as Black Swan Ballerina

Vanessa looks GORG in this outfit.

JoJo Siwa as Draco Malfoy

We had to take a double take at JoJo because she looks exactly like Draco Malfoy.

Drag Race's Shea Couleé as Patrick Star

We have no words.

If all that's not enough to get your creative juices flowing, join us on a throwback to celebrity costumes of Halloweens past. We did our absolute best not to just upload 20 pictures of Heidi Klum.

Gok Wan as a clown

Gok Wan knows his fashion and obviously knows his fancy dress from the looks of things. This clown outfit is OTT, extra and fab-u-lous. We stan.

Holly Willoughby as a unicorn

If you've ever watched This Morning, you'll know Holly Willoughby is the biggest fan of unicorns... like ever. She's clearly living her childhood dreams. But we've got one question, how much did this outfit cost? It looks expensive.

Ed Sheeran as a pimp

Don't lie, we've all got a hideous fur jacket stuck at the back of our wardrobes. Why not take a leaf out of Ed's book and use it to dress up as a pimp.

Stacey Solomon as a mermaid

If you're wanting to keep it stripped back, plain, but effective, Stacey Solomon's mermaid outfit would do the job. Her black crop top and mermaid tail is just perfection. Joe Swash's outfit on the other hand... Let's just say it's very fitting with the theme.

Lupita Nyong'o as Dionne from Clueless

Movie costumes will never go out of style, especially if it’s a classic like Clueless. And who among us doesn’t have a matching plaid co-ord in the back of their wardrobe? Plus, you will get endless use out of that bedazzled 90’s landline.

Alan Carr as Gemma Collins

There's only one word to describe this outfit - WOW. Alan Carr dressing up as Gemma Collins, aka the meme queen, is iconic on so many levels and would certainly turn heads. And even better, your bestie could dress up as Bobby Norris.

Nicole Scherzinger as Cleopatra

If you're wanting to look like a golden goddess, then take note from The X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger and dress up as Cleopatra. The jewels and the diamonds - it's a look.

Aisling Bea as June from The Handmaids Tale

Comedian and actress Aisling Bea did not disappoint with this look, dressing up as June from The Handmaids Tale. We have no idea what the plant has got to do with the look but we'll just go with it.

Frank Skinner as Frankenstein

He's a comedy genius so obviously he had to dress us as a character with his own name in it! Frank is giving us all the ghoulish vibes - we definitely need his MUA's number.

Joan Collins as a Hollywood star

Joan Collins, a Hollywood superstar, dressing us as Madame du Barry - a victim of the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution. Maybe not an outfit for a club vibe.

Keith Lemon as Lost Boy

Keith's fancy dress included prostethics, which took this costume to next level Halloween. Dressing up as David from The Lost Boys, he looks very much like the character and it's weird to even think it's the Leeds-born comedian under that outfit - it's SO convincing.

Michael McIntyre as a dead buisnessman

Michael McIntyre has gone for the classic blood on white shirt look. Easy, simple and cheap. Is it a little bit basic though? Sorry Michael...

Scarlett Moffatt as a Day of the Dead skeleton

Former Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt looks amazing in this Mexican Day of the Dead outfit. The outfit is on point and isn't too much of look that anyone could recreate. As for her friends Joker outfit - amazing. They both had a very good make-up artist this night.

Laura Anderson as a peacock

Love Island's Laura Anderson must have spent hours in the make-up chair for this look but it certainly paid off. She looks insane with all those jewels on her face. Why do we keep singing Peacock by Katy Perry in our heads when we look at this picture?

Anne Marie as Billie Eilish

Anne Marie looks so much like Billie Eilish in his outfit we had to double take. She looks so cool, from the long, neon green talons to the iconic foot boot. This is a look we think lots of people could recreate.

Lucie Donlan as Mystic Meg

We're getting mysterious vibes mixed with Nessa from Gavin and Stacey vibes from Love Island 2018 star Lucie Donlan's fancy dress costume. She looks awesome - 10/10.

Like Derren Brown's outfit, we're not exactly sure what look Stormzy is going for but it looks powerful and would be cheap to recreate.

Kady McDemott as a dead ballerina

Kady McDermott's outfit is perfect for the club. It gives you the flexibility to show off your range of dance moves and the tutu means people won't come as close to you, leaving you more room to dance. Simple.

Liam Payne as Superman

It's not the goriest of Halloween looks but phwaar, yes please Liam Payne.

Aitch as a Kangaroo/Cowboy

Rapper Aitch is chanelling his inner Kangaroo crossed with a Cowboy in this fancy dress costume. It's giving us major Old Town Road vibes and many a laugh.

Ella May as a pumpkin

Ella May is rocking the pumpkin inspired outfit. The green wig is fitting and the fur orange jacket keeps you warm. Winning.

Jax Jones as a Mummy

Of course Jax Jones dressed up as a Louis Vuitton mummy. What else would he dress up as? He's a DJ at the end of the day.

Georgia Aurelia Elliott as Mystic Meg

Similar to Love Island's Lucie, Georgia Aurelia Elliott is also channelling Mystic Meg vibes with a stripped back look. The face jewels make the outfit. Goals.

Rita Ora as Post Malone

Rita Ora's homage to fellow singer Post Malone, complete with a cigarette and bottle of beer, is absolutely GENIUS. In fact, her resemblance to the real deal was so uncanny that one publication actually used a photo of Rita in an article about Post. Oops...

Kim Kardashian and Jonathan Cheban as Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic

We've lost count of how many Tiger King themed Halloween costumes we've seen, but one thing we do know is that there are few who pulled it off as well as Kim K and her bestie Jonathan. Plus, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm are ADORABLE as tigers.

The Weeknd as The Nutty Professor

We were totally gobsmacked when we realised it was none other than The Weeknd underneath this The Nutty Professor costume. He looks totally unrecognisable...

Vanessa Hudgens as Catwoman

Who here among us hasn't donned a pair of cat ears, a black top and a makeshift tail to go trick or treating? But Vanessa Hudgens' PVC Catwoman bodysuit takes the look to a whole 'nother level.

Halsey as Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

We're not quite sure how's pulled it off but Halsey manages to look both scary and drop dead gorgeous (pun intended) at the same time as Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. Her face paint is to die for (okay, we'll stop now).

Halloween is a huge event for the showbiz world, especially for Jonathan Ross, who decorates his ÂŁ2.5 million London house with spectacular decorations and invites nearly every single UK celebrity on our screens round his lavish gaff every year for a proper knees-up.

Here's Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood rocking up at Rossy's in a subtle Halloween number.

However, he insists this is the only showbiz event he likes to host, telling Loose Women, "The main reason I do the Halloween party is because my kids love it.

"It started as a thing for my kids when they were little and it grew and became slightly more grown up when they became grown ups.

"I don't really mind who comes because my kids have 20 to 30 people they invite each and that's the party and other people [who turn up] are people who come up to me and say 'Please can I come to your party?'"
