Kelly Ripa & Ryan Seacrest's *Many* ‘Live’ Halloween Costumes Have Been Unveiled (Including Barbie & Ken)

There are a million reasons we love Halloween, one of them being Live with Kelly and Ryan’s special Halloween episode. And this year, co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest really brought their A-game.

The Instagram account dedicated to the show shared a glimpse at several of the many costumes featured on Live’s Multiverse Halloween: The Best in the Universe. The first slideshow showed the Live cast dressed as Hulk, Loki, Scarlet Witch and Dr. Strange.

The caption read, “We went into the multiverse with Hulk, Loki, Scarlet Witch and Dr Strange #LiveHalloween.”

The second slideshow featured Ripa and Seacrest dressed as Barbie and Ken. It also included a cameo by the Cookie Monster Kal Penn.

Producers even shared a glimpse of the Live interns, who channeled members of the talk show staff (including Ripa and Seacrest). One person 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!”

Last year, 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 last year, 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 last year 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…?
