These Celebrity Childhood Halloween Costumes Are Strangely Compelling

The Debrief: #TBT: The Celeb Halloween Edition

If you’re still deliberating about which Halloween costume to buy this year, then take some inspiration from these stellar celeb efforts from back in the day when their parents still did their facepaint... 

1. Taylor Swift

That outfit looks like it would make you extremely hot after a while. I bet she can’t wait to shake it – sorry. 

2. Ed Sheeran

We’re not normally scared of clowns, but the intensity in Ed Sheeran’s eyes here is… unnerving.

3. Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner is still so photogenic and perfect looking, even as a tiny child with a green face wearing a pointy hat with a feather pom pom. Kris Jenner didn’t dress up. WE’RE JOKING. We’re joking.

4. Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham wrote a hilarious piece for Lenny this week on her previous Halloween costume failures. The outfit on the left is supposed to be a secretary, but on reflection, Lena feels it’s more ‘teensy alcoholic divorcee’. 

5. Cindy Crawford

I guess Cindy Crawford didn’t get the memo about how uncool it is for couples to wear his and hers Halloween outfits. 

6. Emma Roberts

In a cute example of art imitating life, here is Emma Roberts clearly channelling her American Horror Story character Madison as a child.

7. Lindsay Lohan

Super-adorable Parent Trap-era Lilo appears to be a dressed as a princess here, so we’re not sure why she’s posing with a pair of ominous dangling legs… but hey, she seems happy!
