10 of the Most Iconic Celebrity Halloween Looks

November 1st is arguably one of the ~best~ days to scroll through your Instagram feed. All season long we’ve seen photos of people posing with scarecrows, sitting in pumpkin patches and sipping hot cocoa, but November 1st, in particular, is the day in which all of the crazy Halloween costume photos are released.

There are two types of people: The ones who wait anxiously for their friends and favorite celebrities to post pics of their Halloween costumes, and the ones who delete Instagram for the day and want nothing to do with the Halloween craziness.
