For the 2009 Svedka Vodka Halloween party, Lively disguised herself in an ink- black wig and captain-chic threads. Adorned with a sexy men’s necktie, a mile-high skirt, and a cute cap to match, she was undoubtedly flying private. Interested in moonlighting as Lively’s wingwoman? The sky’s the limit on aviator-inspired uniforms, from sexy pilot, to Amelia Earhart, or your very own Top Gun flight dress.

2. Claus Hjelmbak’s X-Ray Costume

This man has a set of legs! Dressed in a hot pink wig and metallic strappy sandals, the Danish host of a Scandinavian Style Mansion Party, and past associate of Lindsay Lohan, flaunted his figure in this purple, X-ray dress at the 2010 red carpet party. Want to follow suit? Wear a skeleton blazer or X-ray dress instead.

5. Paris Hilton’s Sexy Jailbird Costume

Leave it to Paris to come up with the sexiest, delinquent costume she could find. Her ensemble for the 2007 Very Sexy Halloween Party in Las Vegas included a backless, striped number with "jail bait" printed on her derrière. We're confident few others wouldn't find this concept too close to home, as the appearance came shortly after her jailhouse stint earlier that year.

6. Sheryl Crow’s Sexy Cop Costume

Allison Beck

Who says a cop can’t show a little skin? At Bette Midler’s 2007 Hulaween gala, the Grammy-award winning songstress did what most cops can’t, opting for short shorts and fishnets to go along with her cap and badge.

7. Doug Reinhardt’s Tooth Fairy Costume

At Heidi Klum’s 2009 Halloween bash, the former star of The Hills took the night off from placing quarters under the pillows of children, put on clean white knee socks, a tutu, and a headband to accompany his then-girlfriend Paris Hilton — and you can do the same, with this costume. We’d lose a tooth today just to have him come visit us.

9. Will Ferrell’s Megamind Costume

In 2010, the Megamind star might have spent just a little too much time on set getting into character, appearing larger than life (with a head nearly four times the size of his) in a body-hugging unitard. Feeling like a super-villain yourself? Dress up like Ferrell — just be sure that the ceilings are high, if you’re headed out to party.

10. Petra Nemcova’s Cleopatra Costume

Model Petra Nemcova assumed the role of one of history's finest women, Cleopatra, at Roberto Cavalli and Giuseppe Cipriani's 2010 Halloween bash. While both women were gifted with natural beauty, we are certain the real Cleopatra exposed much less cleavage in her traditional robes. Nemcova's deep V-neck, cream-colored gown, with its thin gold bands at the bust and waist, make this the sexiest personification in history.

4. Al Roker’s Superman Costume

He delivers the weather and saves lives? Truly a superhero! Dressed in a body-hugging royal blue bodysuit, Superman’s signature cape, and even with a head of hair to complete the look, Roker’s 2010 get-up for NBC’s The Today Show Halloween episode caught the eyes of damsels in distress everywhere — you can, too.

8. Brooke Burke’s Catwoman Costume

Meeoww! For a 2010 Halloween party, Brooke Burke embodied Catwoman, donning a patent leather body suit so close-fitting, it could have been lacquered to her skin. Are you in the cougar mood this season? Pounce on one of these feline costumes, and don’t forget the four-inch stiletto heels and embellished eye mask with matching ears.

3. Tori Spelling’s Peacock Costume

Alongside husband Dean McDermott, and kids Liam and Stella, actress Tori Spelling attended the 2010 CAAF Dream Halloween party in LA as proud as a peacock. Her place in the pecking order was a metaphor on this night; while she mixed and mingled with celebrity comrades, dad McDermott played superhero to the kids. Enveloped in a multi-color feather tiered skirt and bustier, lots of eyelash extensions, and as much peacock blue as she could find, Tori’s transformation was achieved with her own unique style.

BOO-Cardi Punch And 17 More Scary-Good Halloween Cocktails

Throwing a Halloween bash? Make it spectacular with Halloween cocktails that ooze, fizz, and give your party a spooky vibe.

Halloween is the best time of the year to go above and beyond. There’s no such thing as being too extra when it comes to this party. If we learned only one thing from Mean Girls, it’s that Halloween parties are an official anything goes zone.

That said, you don’t need lingerie and animal ears to take your party to the next level. Whether it’s costumes, decorations, or libations, don’t be afraid to turn up the volume this Halloween. (Save your fears for the vampires and witches. Or, you know, the ex who showed up to the party unexpectedly.)

The best part of Halloween as a kid? Trick or treating. The best part of Halloween as an adult? Drinking! (Which, come to think of it, also happens to be the best part of most holidays as an adult.)

This year, save the candy for the kids and fill your party with some grown-up treats of the alcoholic variety.

Everyone loves a good theme, and frankly, there's no time like Halloween to pull out all the stops. Don't stick with boring beer and wine when you can get your spook on with fun and funky Halloween-themed boos—er, booze. (Sorry, we had to.)

Whether your Halloween style is scary, sexy, or somewhere in between, these custom drinks will help you stay on theme and drink away the night in style. Hey, if you're getting all decked out, there's no reason your drinks shouldn't get dressed up too.

It doesn't take much to transform an ordinary cocktail into a creepy one. So if you're itching for some All Hallow's Eve action, we've got 16 thrilling Halloween cocktails that are a must-drink for your party. We promise you'll love them! Happy haunting.

1. Jello Shot Eyeballs

2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin

1 cup canned, unsweetened coconut milk

Sprinkle the gelatin over the coconut milk in a saucepan and let sit for a few minutes. Heat over low heat, stirring, until the gelatin starts to dissolve. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Cool until just warm.

Stir in the Malibu. Pour into spherical ice mold that has been sprayed with cooking spray. After chilling and unmolding, paint on details with gel or paste food coloring.

For added grossness, use a large syringe to squirt some red (gelled) Jell-O into the center of the eyeball, or some other thick filling, like pudding. Insert the syringe carefully and squirt the filling out slowly so it doesn’t explode the eyeball.

2. Gremlin Lemonade

Margarita mix (Tequila optional) or lemonade (optional)

Maraschino cherry with stem

Serve chilled margarita mix on the rocks and add a splash of grenadine. Skewer a slice of kiwi for the face. Cut a cherry in half and attach with pieces of toothpick for eyes. Slip the skewer into the beverage glass. Add the cherry stem for a smile and twists of lemon, lime, and orange peel for hair.

3. Monster Mash Slush

1/2 of a medium honeydew melon, seeded, peeled, and cubed (3 cups)

Coarse sugar or black sea salt

1 16 ounce bottle lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled

2 - 3 tablespoons grenadine syrup

Cut orange in half. Cut one half into wedges wrap and chill overnight. Juice the remaining half set juice aside.

In a blender combine honeydew melon, tequila, orange liqueur, and the reserved orange juice cover and blend until smooth. With blender running, add ice cubes, a few at a time, blending until mixture becomes slushy. Pour into a 2-quart freezer container. Cover freeze overnight.

To serve, rub the reserved orange wedges around rims of eight glasses. Dip rims in coarse sugar or black sea salt to coat set aside. Using a heavy spoon, scrape frozen mixture scoop mixture into prepared glasses. Add 1/4 cup of the chilled lemon-lime beverage to each glass. Drizzle with grenadine.

10 Scarlet Witch

Movie fans saw the Scarlet Witch for the first time in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in the mid-credits scene, but those who missed that scene saw her in Avengers: Age of Ultron and once again in Captain America: Civil War. Movie fans who do not read comics think that we have the wrong picture for Scarlet Witch here, because what this cosplayer is wearing is nothing like what we saw Elizabeth Olsen wearing in all the movies.

In the movies, Scarlet Witch was far more covered than she is when you compare her with her appearances in the comics, possibly dressing her up in order to keep the movies friendly to viewers of all ages. If this cosplayer were to dress up as the Scarlet Witch in the movies, she would not have made it to this list, but she is here, because she is wearing the more revealing version of Scarlet Witch's costume.

Heidi Klum's Halloween costumes over the years, ranked

Nobody does Halloween quite like Heidi Klum. The supermodel has become synonymous with the spooky holiday over the past two decades, regularly subjecting herself to hours of makeup, prosthetics, body casts and fittings for the sake of a jaw-dropping costume.

And while she's unlikely to throw her annual star-studded Halloween party this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, you can still count on Klum to come up with a stunning outfit. "I don't want to let my Halloween fans down because there are so many people who love creativity as much as I do and are jonesing to see what I do," she told us in 2019.

In the meantime, take a look back at the committed catwalker's most iconic costumes from over the years -- from "Shrek" ogress to old lady -- all ranked from mundane to magnificent.

FilmMagic Mike Coppola WireImage

"I wanted to be Heidi, but a little bit more S&M," the model told us of her first-ever Halloween party look, which featured a German dirndl with a punk twist. Spooky enough, but nothing compared to her over-the-top outfits to come.

The highlight of this Halloween look? The horse, of course -- which Klum wasn't sure how to ride. "[The NYPD] gave me one of the police horses and it was very nice. But I was still scared," she said.

Klum donned fake boobs and drawn-on brows to transform into the beloved cartoon character.

This bloodthirsty look required some major DIY on Klum's part. "I had help with the costume but didn't have [pro] hair and makeup until 2011!" she told us, adding that she sewed together five wigs to create her character's voluminous 'do.

While not especially creative by Klum's standards, this look wins extra points for the commitment involved: "I had to go to one of those medical-supply stores and get a big, heavy fake skeleton that doctors and nurses use to study with, and carry it on my back all night long," she told us.

Paging Moira Rose! We're sure the model ruffled a few feathers in this caw-some creation. "I had just given birth. I was like, 'Black is slimming,'" Klum explained of her choice.

Klum made for one fine feline in this slinky, glittery getup. Sometimes, you've just gotta go the "sexy animal" route!

In the first of two looks she'd wear that year, Klum monkeyed around with then-husband Seal. She told us these looks were especially complicated to create: "An ape has so many spots, all these little freckles, and then [prosthetics artist Mike Marino] had to glue all these little hairs onto the prosthetics."

13. Eve and the forbidden fruit (2006)

While nine months pregnant, Klum got extra creative. "I thought, 'What can I be that is big and safe for the baby and comfortable for me?' We had to get a convertible because I couldn't fit through car doors," she recalled of this Biblical look.

Talk about impressive wingspan! Klum told us "it was very hard to see" in this look. "I had these plastic round eyes and behind that, the batteries for the lights."

Klum gilded every inch of herself for this costume, from her hair to her teeth to her décolletage.

Klum took this glamorous look to the next level by covering her face in crystals.

Klum doused herself in purple glitter and even wore red contacts to complete her costume. We're still not sure how she managed to walk on those stilts.

She flipped the script for this dramatic entrance, arriving with an army of blond lookalikes with identical measurements. Prosthetics were used to make the models' faces match Klum's -- eerie!

7. "Thriller" werewolf (2017)

The star paid tribute to Michael Jackson with this killer outfit, even rehearsing for four days to get her dance moves just right.

By far the most terrifying of Klum's costumes, this gory, gruesome alien-slash-zombie getup might give you nightmares.

5. Fiona from "Shrek" (2018)

It's not easy being green -- Klum piled on the prosthetics for this awesome outfit, even arriving at her party in an onion carriage. Tom Kaulitz, meanwhile, joined her dressed as the movie's titular ogre.

4. Hindu goddess Kali (2008)

While this colorful costume was deemed culturally insensitive by some, there's no denying the artistry involved. Klum told us the eight-armed look was "tricky" to achieve: "You have this heavy backpack with eight arms you lug around all night."

3. Skinless human body (2011)

Inspired by the "Body Worlds" exhibition, Klum shed her skin for this creepy costume, even arriving on a gurney accompanied by a duo of doctors.

A true testament to the magic of makeup, this elderly look rendered Klum unrecognizable. The model told us the costume -- her personal favorite so far -- "was sparked by people telling me, 'Wow, you're 40 now, how are you feeling with being old in [the modeling] industry?'"

1. Jessica Rabbit (2015)

Klum outdid herself in every way with this cartoon creation come to life. "I was looking up who is the most well-known sex symbol -- and it's Jessica Rabbit," said Klum. "I said, 'Perfect.' What man doesn't want Jessica Rabbit? I wanted plus-plus everything: boots, butt, lips. Everyone was grabbing my boobs and butt because they knew they were fake."
