7. Eve and the Serpent
Occasionally, Heidi and her hubby, Seal, break out the couples costumes, and when they do… well, let’s just say that it’s really something special. In 2006, they got their Garden of Eden on and dressed up as Eve and the Serpent—with a twist: Heidi was the Serpent, and Seal was Eve. It takes a real man to put on a dress!
8. Black Cat
A lot of people dress up as cats for Halloween. Why? My best guess is because it’s easy: Just add some ears and a tail to some black leggings and a leotard, paint on some whiskers, and you’re good to go. Heidi’s cat, however, went all-out with a fuzzy bodysuit, actual whiskers and fangs, and even a kitty collar. I’m trying hard to resist making the expected pun here, but let’s face it: She was purr-fect in 2007!
Leave it to Heidi to dig up something this creative: Her 2008 costume was none other than Kali, the many-armed Hindu goddess of eternal energy. Her multiple arms are even carrying Kali’s traditional sword and severed head. The crimson contact lenses she’s sporting here were specially made for her, though it looks like her trusty pair of fangs are getting another outing as well. I wonder how much that headdress weighed?
10. A Murder of Crows
Okay, so I’m not actually sure if a group of two crows is enough to qualify as a murder, but the collective noun for a flock of crows is just too good to pass up. So sue me. Anyway, Heidi and Seal pulled off another spectacular couples costume in 2009. I love how their feathered duds look like actual clothes (he’s wearing a tux, she’s sporting a mini-dress), but still turn them into the perfect pair of crows.
11. “Alien Transformer”
Heidi’s 2010 costume required a special skill: Stilt-walking! She called this one an “alien transformer,” though most people described her as some sort of robot superhero. She and Seal weren’t a pair that year, but he makes a pretty convincing Silver Surfer, doesn’t he?
12. Human Evolution
Heidi’s got not just one, but TWO costumes up her sleeve this year—because she’s having two parties, one in New York and one in L.A.! Furthermore, the costumes create an interesting image when placed side by side: One of them turns her into an ape, while the other shows off the insides of the human body. Human evolution? Maybe!
