Though Heidi Klum usually goes over-the-top for her Halloween costumes, her ultra-cute take on Minnie at the Minnie Mouse's Hollywood Walk of Hame celebration couldn't be easier to emulate. Just throw on a black polka dot top or dress and put on some red lipstick. Then, all you'll need are those recognizable ears (we love Heidi's sparkly ones!) for a go-to last-minute costume.

Your "mini me" can dress up as Minnie, too!

How cute (and creative) is this kids' Minnie Mouse costume?! We love this clever DIY mashup of Minnie Mouse and the best chocolate candy — M&M's — as a punny and unique spin on Minnie. Plus, it's simpler to put together than it looks — all you need to do is make the round M&M's logo for the dress with white sticker paper and red felt, and then spray paint some lentils to hot-glue them onto the ears.

It's as easy as ironing on a varsity "M" patch on a basic white sweater — then donning a red skirt, a red bandana, and of course a Minnie hat!
