This Halloween, some of the best indie musicians sported the most outrageous and entertaining Halloween costumes.
From the Sanderson sisters of Hocus Pocus to the Minions from Despicable Me, indie artists did not disappoint. Check out a list of some of the best costumes from your favourite musicians below.
Haim – The Witches from Hocus Pocus
After asking their fans if they should dress up as cowboys or the Sanderson sisters for Halloween, they decided to dress up as the witchy Hocus Pocus trio. They even did a lip sync performance of “I Put A Spell On You” as they convincingly imitated the sisters’ creepy dance moves.
The Beaches – The A&E Team
Not only did The Beaches decide to dress up as everyone’s favourite “A&E Team,” Criss Angel, Dog The Bounty Hunter, and Billy The Exterminator, but they even made a spooky trailer on a cruise ship to accompany it. The video is hilarious and definitely worth watching, as they attempt to perform some outrageous stunts.
The Elwins – Minions
The Elwins played a show this weekend at Rebel Night Club, where they decided to dress up for Halloween in Despicable Me Minion costumes. The Toronto-based indie rock band was opening for alt-rock duo, USS, where they decided to open the show in costume.
Billie Eilish – Lil Xan
Billie Eilish dressed up for her Halloween concert in Toronto last night at The Phoenix Concert Theatre, where she took to the stage looking just like Lil Xan. She even plastered fake tattoos on herself that matched his iconic facial and body ink.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers shredded through 2002’s “Can’t Stop” at an elementary school in full on spooky attire including skeleton costumes, masks, and a white wig. Drummer, Chad Smith, and a few audience members captured the moment on video when they took to his kid’s school’s stage at the ripe hour of 9:30 a.m.
Born Ruffians – The Undertaker
The lovable indie rock trio, The Born Ruffians, all dressed up for Halloween, with the spotlight on their “Undertaker” costume. The other two members of the Toronto band dressed up as “viking boy and shondi the clown.”
Alvvays – Aliens
The lovable surf rock weirdos really committed to their alien costumes this year, decked head to toe in green with green face paint and green swim caps. The picture is even more entertaining with the creatures enjoying themselves during a quick game of pool.
