The year 2012 saw some pretty awesome Halloween costumes from celebrities like Miley Cyrus, One Direction member Liam Payne plus many others.

Miley Cyrus went as rapper Nicki Minaj, wearing a nearly identical jumpsuit to one of the Harajuku Barbie’s ‘Beez in the Trap‘ getups, while Mr. Payne dressed up as Mr. Wayne’s alter ego, Batman! Both of them went all out and look insanely awesome in their Halloween costumes, as did creepy, ghost-like vampire Adam Lambert, sexy All Hallow’s Eve queen Christina Aguilera, and “Tigger Woods,” aka Joe Jonas.

You can check out more pictures of celebrities dressed up in Halloween costumes below, including pics of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s costumes — they went for a couples theme, with Kim K going as a voluptuous mermaid while West went as her “captain.” The power couple also dressed up as Batman and Catwoman (along with the rest of the Gotham City-themed Kardashian clan) at another party on Oct. 31. Another couple costume was brought to the table by celeb spouses Carey Hart and Pink, who were Danny and Sandy from ‘Grease.’ Perhaps they drew some inspiration from the hurricane that hit the East Coast?

Speaking of couples, Lady Gaga and her makeup artist/BFF Tara posed together for a pic, with Tara dressed up as Mother Monster while Gaga was the “Cannabis Queen.” We all know love Gaga loves the ganj, so we think it’s hilarious she dressed up in the green frock and weed leaf pasties. But who made the best weed queen? Rihanna also dressed up as a ganja goddess, but she was more covered up than the carefree Gaga. Meanwhile, Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 poked fun at ex-GF Avril Lavigne, who dressed up as a sailor with her fiance Chad Kroeger nowhere in sight — although Chad did hop on Twitter to diss Whibley for the Halloween jab.

There are also photos of Britney Spears as your classic Halloween witch, Selena Gomez as a cat, Kesha as a freaky zombie-type character, Swizz Beatz as a boxer with his wife Alicia Keys as a Black Panther queen,” J. Lo as a hippy, Mariah Carey and family as Goldilocks and her three bears, and Ludacris as NBA star Anthony Davis, who’s almost as famous for his unibrow as he is for his basketball skills. Oh yeah, and did we mention Katy Perry and her BFF Shannon Woodward dressed up as Daria and Jane from the MTV cartoon series? Too freaking awesome. What’s not so awesome? Chris Brown‘s terrorist costume… Yeah, we don’t really know what to say about that one.

Keep on scrolling to see Halloween costumes from the cast of ‘Glee‘ — Naya Rivera and Harry Shum Jr. went as Looney Tunes characters, while King Halloween Chris Colfer rocked a “llama assassin” DIY costume and a guillotine getup — and Hilary Duff and Jessica Simpson‘s very professional costumes. Fergie and hubby Josh Duhammel also killed it as Angelyne and Dennis Woodruff, aka shameless and notorious Hollywood “self-starters,” while Fergie Ferg went solo as a sexy kitten as well.

Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes from the Wanted also dressed up, with Jay hitting the town as a wolfman and a balding, hillbilly-esque dude while Nathan went for a creepy clown… as did fellow bandmate Tom Parker, who looked so creepy with his GF Kelsey. We’ve also Nick stars turned singers, Ariana Grande, Miranda Cosgrove and Jennette McCurdy, with the first two looking cute as kittens, while McCurdy kept is scary with some crazy makeup. Finally, closing things out in a most appropriate way is DJ deadmau5, who converted his mouse helmet into a ‘Hellraiser’ theme for his spot-on Pinhead costume. A huge kudos to the EDM hitmaker for his stellar getup.
