Heidi Klum’s 2022 Halloween costume is her most impressive one to date.
The America’s Got Talent judge transformed into a worm, and her husband was a mauled fisherman.
Fans lost it over Klum’s dedication to the look, and the special effects artistry that made it happen.
In case you weren’t aware, Heidi Klum goes all out for Halloween—or as she calls it, “Heidiween.” Some of her past show-stopping looks include a super creepy alien, Jessica Rabbit, Lady Godiva, and more. But this year’s costume is the real hook, line, and sinker: Her husband Tom Kaulitz dressed up as a mauled fisherman and Klum was his bait, a life-sized worm.
Yep, you read that right.
The look, which took an entire special effects team to build, prepare, and execute, was an albeit odd, but literal work of art. Klum shared the entire getting ready process on Instagram, as well as some behind-the-scenes footage of the giant costume’s build. (She had to take it for a test run to make sure she could do “The Worm” in it, of course.)
The two-piece costume encased Klum’s entire body, the only parts of her exposed being her face and her feet so she could barely slither wherever she went. In making her public debut, she even fell down and thrashed around like a real worm would.
Fans lost it over Klum’s commitment to the bit. Some might even call it “a catch.”
“Are you in there ? 😨” one person commented. “Heidi is undoubtedly the QUEEN OF HALLOWEEN,” another added. “Amazing👏👏👏👏 I have been waiting so long lol,” someone else wrote.
According to a series of clips posted to Instagram, Klum and her team began bringing the worm to life at 11 a.m. for its evening appearance. That’s not including all of the fittings she had to do before construction, which she teased on Instagram in June.
When she saw it for the first time, she fell in love. “This makes me so happy. You don’t even know. Look at this thing. Oh my god, yes,” she said in her behind-the-scenes clip. And in teasing the costume to People, she said she was both excited and nervous, adding that a lot of prosthetics would be involved.
“I don’t think I’ve ever felt as claustrophobic as I will feel that night. I have a thing about feeling claustrophobic,” she said.“Especially if I have too much stuck on me and can’t take it off … So I’ll have to really breeze through it.”
Thankfully, she seems to have made it through rather unscathed. And she definitely got the “wow” factor she was going for.
