Here’s the Best Halloween Costumes From the Weekend

Celebrities turned up the heat for Halloween weekend, including Keke Palmer, Diddy, Latto, Nicki Minaj, Megan Thee Stallion, Lizzo and more.

Our favorite celebrities were anything but frightening this Halloween weekend. After fans demanded that actress and KeyTV founder Keke Palmer star as Rogue in an upcoming X-Men film series, the Nope star gave her own take on the superhero. Wearing Rogue cosplay, the photoset shows Palmer starring in X-Men Origins: Rogue, with additional images showing her floating over a city and stepping on the head of a Sentinel.

Serving theatrical looks for the spooky holiday, Palmer continued with a fictionalized epic titled Detangled, courtesy of Black Twitter. With Palmer portraying a Black version of Rapunzel, an unseen suitor calls for the character to let down her hair, only obliging after hearing Zapp & Roger’s classic “Computer Love” played on a boombox.

Another actress who went camp for Halloween was former Scandal star Kerry Washington, who dressed as recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Lionel Richie.

Diddy was an easy contender for king of Halloween, dressing as the Joker from 2008 Batman epic The Dark Night. The Bad Boy Entertainment founder had a hilarious run-in with Tyler, the Creator, jokingly demanding the two-time Grammy winner to get out of his vehicle.

In a parking garage, Diddy continued his Joker antics, dropping a faux grenade from his jacket while surrounded by his masked henchmen.

Throwing her latest edition of annual party Hottieween, Megan Thee Stallion wore a vixen-esque bloodied costume, while fellow rapper and guest Coi Leray dressed as a blue-painted elf.

Check out more creative costumes from Janelle Monáe, Lizzo, Nicki Minaj and more.
