Year after year, we look forward to seeing the creative costumes and truly out-there attire Kelly Ripa, 53, and the rest of the morning show crew wear for Live’s special Halloween episode. And this year on Live with Kelly and Mark, Ripa and her newest co-host, Mark Consuelos, really brought their A-game.

Earlier this morning, the Instagram account dedicated to the show shared the photos taken of their costumes on Live’s Halloween special. From Barbie to The White Lotus, here are the many Halloween costumes Ripa and Consuelos wore on the show.

The first slideshow shows the Live hosts dressed as characters from the Barbie movie. Ripa is dressed as “Stereotypical Barbie” while Consuelos is dressed up as Ken. The caption read, “Happy Halloween from #LiveHalloween!”

In a YouTube video, Ripa and Consuelos channel Taylor Swift and her new boyfriend, Travis Kelce, in their iconic bright red Kansas City Chiefs attire.

Producers shared another slideshow on Instagram, which shows Ripa and Consueleos dressed as characters from HBO’s The White Lotus, and their costumes are spot on.

While Consuelos may be new to the show, this isn’t the first year we’ve gotten to see the hosts’ costumes. Let’s take a look at some of our fave Halloween costumes from last year (when Ryan Seacrest was still Ripa’s co-host).

Last year, the Live crew dressed up as Hulk, Loki, Scarlet Witch and Dr. Strange.

In a second slideshow shared on the show’s page, Ripa and Seacrest are dressed as Barbie and Ken. It also includes a cameo by the Cookie Monster Kal Penn.

And we got a rare glimpse of the Live interns, who are channeling members of the talk show staff (including Ripa and Seacrest). One person is even dressed as the iconic Live mug.

The costumes were revealed a few days after producers released a teaser video on Instagram that took viewers inside the “multiverse.” The caption read, “70 costumes. Endless laughs. Many universes. Tune into the one and only ‘Live’s Multiverse Halloween: The Best in the Universe’ on Monday!”

Back in 2021, Ripa and Seacrest also brought their A-game for their Halloween-themed episode. It was clear that they worked overtime filming some of the segments, because the entire team ended up sporting over 40 costumes.

The duo shot the episode from “outer space” while aboard their own “Boo Origin.” For the segment, the co-hosting duo sported matching bright blue spacesuits and even simulated an entire liftoff.

According to a press release, the installment also transformed the latest pop culture trends, including silly takes on 2021's most talked-about TV shows such as Bridgerton, The Queen’s Gambit, Ted Lasso, Squid Game, The Masked Singer and Emily in Paris. The episode also featured a retro spin on home workouts.

When the episode aired back in 2021, we got a glimpse behind the scenes in a video that was shared to the official Live Instagram account (seen above). The account runners wrote, “Today is our #LiveHalloween Out of this World Show!! Tune in now! #KellyandRyan @ryanseacrest@gelmanlive @dejavuspeaks.”

See a few of the other ensembles from October 2021 below.

While most of these looks were a surprise, Ripa had previously teased her and announcer Deja Vu’s Bridgerton-inspired costumes in a post on Instagram. On the left, Ripa looks just like the protagonist of season one, Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor), in a baby blue dress with a sheer floral overlay. Her hair is tied in a tight bun. Meanwhile, Deja Vu perfectly nails the look of Queen Charlotte (portrayed by Golda Rosheuvel) in a regal gown and a giant pink-and-white powdered wig.

Is it too early to say we already have a favorite…?
