When it comes to Hollywood dressing up for Halloween, we’ve seen it all — the good, the bad, and the ugly. No, seriously. Didn’t you see Kelly Ripa and Nick Lachey dressed up as Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries on the day they filed for divorce? Yes, it was that bad.
But on the flip side, we’ve also seen some very cute Halloween costumes from some of our favorite celebrity parents, including Sandra Bullock and Alyson Hannigan. Of course, you don’t have to go all out with an exquisite or incredibly original costume — if you’re having as much fun as your kids, then that’s all that matters. And of course, separating their Halloween candy after they go to sleep so you get to keep the non-generic ones. Oh, you know what I’m talking about!
Check out our photo gallery below of the best celebrity Halloween costumes from the past few years and let us know what you think!
