Go big or go home! It applies to sports and costumes for some athletes. When it comes to Halloween, these sports stars are doing it right! When you’re famous, you have the money and resources to go all out, and that’s what we like to see. Check out some of the best costumes from athletes in the past.
Cleveland Cavaliers player Robin Lopez is a category of his own! His costumes are impressive every year. Check out this one from 2019 when he went as Edward Scissorhands and his girlfriend, Christine Vargas as Kim.

Okay, but this one is a personal favorite – Robin Lopez as Batman, but it’s Vargas’ costume that makes it so good – the Penguin.

Though he plays for the Broncos now, Russell Wilson was the Seahawks’ quarterback for 10 seasons – long enough to get to know coach Pete Carroll well enough to do some fine trolling.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was spot on with this John Wick costume last year.

Paralympian ski racer John Sundquist lost his leg when he was just nine years old. I’d say he’s made the best of his situation, not only by being an incredible athlete, but also by getting extra creative with his costumes and using his one leg to come up with some clever ideas, like Tigger!
