Here is how your favourite bands celebrated Halloween

Halloween in Australia basically means getting drunk like you did last weekend only while wearing a costume this time. Musicians from around the world chose to celebrate the occasion in a slightly more elaborate manner – from Mac DeMarco dressed as a Nun to Taylor Swift as Frozen.

Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys dressed as the Riddler, with his Last Shadow Puppets collaborator Miles Kane on the far left as wrestler Ric Flair.


Mac DeMarco couldn’t settle on one option

Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way is underneath the armour in this costume, dressed as Captain Phasma from the next Star Wars movie.


Sufjan Stevens didn’t dress up for the occasion but during a gig in Jersey City he launched into a special Halloween cover of Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ – replete with Drizzy dance moves.

Here’s Pete Wentz from Fallout Boy as Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.


Fearless Vampire Killers went full horror and dressed as various and assorted Jim Carreys. Terrifying.
