Halloween is the second night a year (after the Met) celebrities across the world do the most, as they head to star-studded bashes.

In Mean Girls, it's the one night you can dress like a "total sl*t". Meanwhile, in the land of TikTok, it's the perfect excuse to rip into iconic characters and A-listers, former X-Factor contestants, and re-enact classic Big Brother scenes.

TikTok users certainly won Halloween 2023, hands down.

Here are 17 of our favourite looks that have inevitably gone viral across the platform.

White Chicks

Racking up almost 5 million views, TikTok user J Cook and a friend cosplayed as Kevin and Marcus, dressed as Brittany and Tiffany, from the classic hit film.

They even took it one step further and performed the iconic dance routine.


We got waaaay into character 😭 #whitechicks

Rachel on X Factor

Megan Elizabeth transformed herself into Rachel, who was dubbed 'X Factor's worst contestant' by the internet.
