Halsey as Posion Ivy

Rocking the iconic fiery red, long locks and body paint well, everywhere, Halsey perfectly captured Poison Ivy in all her glory. The barely-there costume featured a bra and underwear made of greenery, with vines wrapped around each leg, and arm-length gloves to complete the look.

Kim Kardashian as Pamela Anderson

It's all about the oversized pout, which Kim achieved by over-lining her lips and filling them in with the perfect pinky-brown hues Pamela Anderson is known for. Complete with a fitted bustier and fluffy pink oversized hat, there's no doubt Kim K had fans doing a double take.
