Halloween has come and gone, and so has the Friday night after it, so it’s probably as good a time as any to look at some of the costumes pro wrestlers wore this year. Wrestling costumes are always interesting, because these are people who often have a lot of resources and imagination, but not always much time to spare. So they don’t always dress up, but when they do it can be amazing. It also helps that they have the bodies of superheroes and cartoon characters, on a level that most real people don’t.
Charlotte Flair looked spectacular as Harley Quinn, although Andrade’s Joker was a little off model and would have benefited from a more tailored suit.
Meanwhile Andrade’s manager Zelina Vega was turning heads as Akasha, from Queen of the Damned.
Sonya Deville was… some kind of vampire devil? I’m not exactly sure, but she looked great.
Nikki Cross went all out with a pitch perfect Chucky from Child’s Play.
Dana Brooke was femme Beetlejuice.

But if you’re looking for a more traditional take on the Michael Keaton character, Heath Slater’s take may be more up your alley.
Nikki, Dana, and Heath all appeared on this year’s WWE Halloween livestream, which honestly is almost unwatchable because of how much fun they’re having.
It looks like Ruby Riott dressed as Oblina from Aaah!!! Real Monsters, but I could only find this one photo from Liv Morgan, which also features Liv as a cow and Sarah Logan in hunting camo (which is pretty much how she dresses when it’s not Halloween.
NXT stars dressed up for their Halloween Live Show, which featured Tegan Nox making her “Lady Kane” nickname very literal.

SoCal Uncensored became Run-DMC for the evening.

Bridging the gap between AEW and NXT were Britt Baker and her boyfriend Adam Cole, who were Mario and Luigi:

It’s awkward when you run into the celebrity you’re dressed as for Halloween. (Not that @orangecassidy cares.) AEW Dynamite is live tonight in a couple of hours at 8pm ET on TNT, it’s our Halloween special, it’s the finals of the World Tag Team Championship Tournament, and it’s going to be a great night of wrestling! Thank you to our awesome fans who have made AEW and Dynamite possible with their support! #aewdynamite @allelitewrestling @aewontnt
As for Cassidy himself, he was at Bar Wrestling’s Halloween show dressed as Priscilla Kelly, fighting Priscilla Kelly, who was dressed as him:

I’m sure there were costumes I missed, and there may be more to come today, as post-Halloween weekend celebrations roll on, so feel free to post more in the comments.
