WATCH Heidi Klum’s 12-Hour Transformation For Her Halloween Costume
Heidi’s annual costumes tend to be pretty elaborate, and the makeup application can take hours. If you’re curious as to how Heidi and her team put together this year’s costume, check out the video below.
Heidi Klum’s 2019 Halloween Costume
Heidi’s costume this year was elaborate and gory. She had exposed organs and muscles, as well as mechanical parts. The transformation took 12 hours, and Heidi had an audience for much of it. She set up at an Amazon Prime bookstore in New York City, with people looking through the window.
As Heidi’s behind-the-scenes videos show, she wore prosthetics on her entire body, as well as her head. That includes an exposed brain! Cute moments from the long process include Heidi eating a bowl of spaghetti bolognese while wearing her partially completed costume, as well as an appearance from Project Runway‘s Tim Gunn.
What Does Heidi’s Costume Mean?
As impressive as her transformation is, you might still be wondering what, exactly, Heidi was supposed to be dressed as. It turns out she was inspired by her husband Tom Kaulitz’s band Tokio Hotel.
“They believe in aliens,” Heidi told People of the band, to which Tom added, “Everyone does, no?” Tom dressed up as an astronaut, and Heidi was supposed to be his alien love.
“I was in space looking for a new planet for humans to live on, right? Cause we already discarded ours,” Tom explained. “I was out there, touring the universe and so, I found her, I found this creature, and I was like, ‘Wow, she looks good.’ I brought her home. So, hopefully, she has some useful information planned.”
So there you have it. Here’s to next year’s costume!
