Busy Philipps and her daughter Birdie wore matching Tinker Bell costumes in 2010.

The actor’s Halloween costume included a sparkly green dress, transparent fairy wings, a drawstring purse, and silver flats adorned with oversized pom poms. She wore the ensemble to the 17th annual Dream Halloween red-carpet event in California.

Lauren Conrad opted for a classic Minnie Mouse costume in 2011.

She wore the costume, which included a polka-dot dress and matching bow, to Maroon 5’s Annual Halloween Bash, held in 2011 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary.

To complete her Minnie Mouse look, Conrad drew whiskers across her cheeks, and tied her hair into buns that looked like ears.

In 2013, Iggy Azalea put a stylish twist on Cruella de Vil’s signature look.

Her costume included houndstooth-print trousers, a white top, shiny gloves, red pumps, and a coat seemingly made from fur. Azalea also wore a black-and-white wig, and walked down the VEVO red carpet with a Dalmatian in hand.

That same year, Mindy Kaling celebrated Halloween in a Captain Hook costume.

Kaling embraced the “Peter Pan” character by wearing a velvet coat, plastic hook, and fake mustache. She posted a photo of the outfit on Instagram, writing: “Captain Hook or flamboyant Founding Father? you decide, friends! #halloween” 

Paris Hilton added a designer accessory to her Minnie Mouse outfit in 2014.

In addition to a polka-dot minidress, thigh-high socks, and red heels, Hilton wore fingerless gloves from Chanel. She was photographed wearing the outfit while attending the annual Casamigos Halloween party.

Taylor Swift and Idina Menzel embraced popular “Frozen” characters during a concert in 2015.

At the Tampa, Florida, stop of Swift’s 1989 World Tour, Menzel joined the musician onstage for a performance of “Let It Go.” For some extra fun, Menzel dressed as her character Elsa, and Swift joined by wearing an Olaf costume.

Allison Williams modeled her “Beauty and the Beast”-inspired costume in a New York City subway station that year.

She looked nearly identical to Belle from the 1991 film, wearing a blue-and-white dress, black flats, and carrying a book in hand. At the time, she joked about her costume on Instagram, writing: “Ugh Belle I’ve been telling you to get a damn Kindle. #SubwayStyle #HappyHalloween.”

Also in 2015, Cole Sprouse proved that he looks just like a character from “Atlantis: The Lost Empire.”

“Breaking the aesthetic of my feed to give you my completed Halloween costume: Milo Thatch from ‘Atlantis,’ (yes I own a framed picture of Teddy Roosevelt),” Sprouse wrote on Instagram at the time. His outfit included a trench coat and Milo’s signature glasses.

Cardi B went with a classic villain costume for a 2017 Halloween party.

For the Dress To Be Free Halloween party, the rapper wore a black-and-white coat, matching wig, and red gloves to channel Cruella de Vil. She also had a Dalmatian on a leash for the festivities.

Jeannie Mai was unrecognizable in 2018 when dressed as Carl Fredricksen from “Up.”

“The Real” host completely embraced the animated character — she wore a tan suit, temporarily dyed her hair gray, donned black glasses, and carried Carl’s signature cane with tennis balls attached.

She was joined by actor Daniel Nguyen, who also dressed as an “Up” character: Russell.

Madelaine Petsch transformed into Ariel with the help of YouTuber Patrick Starrr that same year.

Starrr explained how he created the “Little Mermaid”-inspired makeup on the the “Riverdale” actress in a video posted to his YouTube channel. Of course, Petsch completed the look with curled red hair and a purple, shell-shaped bra.

Similarly, YouTuber Kandee Johnson did Kim Kardashian West’s makeup in 2018 for her Princess Jasmine transformation.

To help Kardashian West look like the “Aladdin” character, Johnson provided Kardashian West with a wig, oversized earrings and a necklace, and did her makeup like the character’s — including her arched eyebrows. The process was documented for Johnson’s YouTube channel.

For a Disney-themed episode of “American Idol” that year, Katy Perry dressed like Snow White.

Not only did she wear Snow White’s signature dress and a wig that looked like the princess’ hair, but Perry also dressed her dog Nugget as Minnie Mouse.

Zendaya looked like royalty when she arrived at the 2019 Met Gala dressed as Cinderella.

Her blue ball gown was designed by Tommy Hilfiger, and lit up as she walked the red carpet. She also wore her hair in a blonde updo, and carried a purse shaped like Cinderella’s carriage.

Her stylist Law Roach, who walked the red carpet with Zendaya, said the outfit was a nod to her Disney past.

Perry later channeled another beloved character for a Disney sing-along show in 2020.

In May 2020, ABC aired “The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II,” during which Perry performed a rendition of “Baby Mine” while dressed as Mrs. Jumbo, the mother elephant from “Dumbo.” Her dog, on the other hand, was dressed as the film’s namesake character.

More recently, the musician bleached her eyebrows and wore prosthetic ears to complete a Tinker Bell costume.

Perry also wore a green strapless minidress, iridescent fairy wings, and green heels with white pom-poms to look like the cartoon fairy for a Disney-themed episode of “American Idol.”

That being said, it’s unclear as to why Perry endured the bleaching, as Disney’s version of Tinker Bell has thin, brown eyebrows.
