Tyga totally pulls off this look from the '90s Jim Carrey movie. If producers choose to reboot it sometime soon, Tyga's already got the costume. Give him a call, Hollywood!

"Flintstones, meet the Flintstones." Sanders and Terrence J are just a modern stone-age family from the town of Bedrock. Not really, but how great is this costume?!

The best part of this costume isn't just the dalmatian: It's Cardi's commitment. She won't be looking for puppies to make a coat out of, but she surely wins in terms of making a costume look couture.

The Queen of Halloween does it again! Notorious for her Halloween looks and her famous Halloween Party, Heidi Klum is almost unrecognizable in this Jessica Rabbit costume. The supermodel gets points for committing to a look—those prosthetics and breastplate can't be comfortable.

The model could wear this outfit the other 364 days of the year and no one would blink an eye (they'd be too busy staring because she looks THAT GOOD). Anyone else think she should totally perm her hair??

Seriously living for Campbell's costume—it's nice to have some pretty looks in a sea of scary ones. The headpiece is a gorgeous touch.
