Celebrities like to do it big for Halloween, but Lizzo did it even bigger than the rest with not one but three costumes for 2021. In the past, she’s dressed up as a DNA test to prove she’s 100 percent that bitch and a fly on Mike Pence’s head, which fans found hilarious. This time, she looked to popular films and TV shows The Mandalorian, Squid Game, and Bebe’s Kids for inspiration and nailed all three costumes.
The “Truth Hurts” singer’s first costume was a very impressive Grogu aka Baby Yoda. Lizzo committed to the costume and was covered from head to toe in mint-green face and body paint. Big prosthetic ears protruded from each side of her head. Baby Yoda may not have had too much hair, but that didn’t stop the TikTok sensation from wearing a long white wig with the costume. Her golden, stiletto-shaped nails looked more like talons because of how long they were (we hope she didn’t accidentally poke her or someone else’s eye out).
She shared her costume in three separate posts, but it’s the final post (the Instagram carousel below), that we love most. Lizzo reimagines Baby Yoda seemingly smoking and sipping on something that’s decidedly not water, just having a grand ole time in the middle of the streets of Hollywood.
Lizzo looked to Netflix’s hit show Squid Game to achieve her second costume. She dressed up as the “Red Light, Green Light” doll with a yellow long-sleeve shirt, red leather dress, and white face mask that resembles the creepy character. To show off this costume, she posted a video of her performing Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller” dance on stage. Her wavy waist-length hair swung behind her in a high ponytail while she nailed the choreography. Something about this performance feels so on-brand for the “Good as Hell” singer, who constantly keeps us entertained.
For her last costume, she posted a 14-second video promising to give the first person who correctly guessed the reference from her costume $100. She gave a mean strut down an office hallway in pink and black striped biker shorts, a light blue blouse, and heeled red flip-flops. This costume is an ode to Dorothea from the animated film Bebe’s Kids. We think she captured the character’s essence with the short asymmetrical hair in a copper color, magenta eye shadow, and a bright red pigment on her lips.
We’re glad that Lizzo gave us this amazing trio of costumes and tapped into characters from popular media. She succeeded with each costume she wore and also gave us a laugh or two. What else could you expect from one of the funniest celebrities on the internet?
