Halloween queen Heidi Klum teases ‘claustrophobic’ costume ahead of famous party’s return


Heidi Klum’s Halloween party is back.

Klum, 49, is hosting her annual Halloween party for the first time since 2019. The model canceled the spooky party in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the party is back and better than ever this year, as Klum and friends celebrate in person in New York City.

Klum revealed her costume was “claustrophobic” in a recent interview with Fox News Digital. She also explained why she thinks people like to dress up for the spooky holidays.

“I think it’s fun for people to be someone else for the night,” Klum said of the party, which is presented by Now Screaming x Prime Video and Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur. “I think people in general like to be scared.”

“It’s the same with watching horror movies. It’s the kind of thing you want to see, and you hold your hands in front of your face, but you peek through your fingers because you really want to see it. That’s love and hate to be scared.”

Klum, who has gone to extremes with amazing Halloween costumes over the years, loves throwing her annual party because she thinks it gives people a chance to “get out of their comfort zone.”

“I always feel like when I see my friends in costume, you just see that they’re having a different good time than they normally are,” she explained. “I feel like people are looser. They have different fun because they’re not themselves. I often feel like when you go to a club or whatever, people are always there, and everyone it’s really cool.”

“I feel like it’s easier to fit into this Halloween community, to have fun, to be wild and crazy and not to be shy…to hit the dance floor and dancing. I feel like it helps people to, you know, have a little fun and get out of their comfort zone, so to speak.”

Klum isn’t the only member of his family who loves Halloween.

Her youngest daughter Lou, whom she shares with British singer Seal, is also fascinated by elaborate fancy dress and costumes.

“She’s got the Halloween bug, so she’s already planned five or six outfits and also made herself in her bedroom,” Klum said.

“She will heal them all, and she will make them all special and hers,” she added. “So I think I’ll probably pass it on to Lou.”

One day, when the 13-year-old grows up enough to attend one of Klum’s famous parties, the two might even choose matching costumes.

As for her Halloween costume for this year? Klum has remained relatively quiet, as she has for the past few years, although she did share a few clues.

“This one is, you know, I’m going to be really hot, and it’s going to be really hot in the club and everyone always wants to come and take their picture. And I’m so excited for that,” Klum revealed to Fox News Digital . “But I will be claustrophobic in my costume.”

The only other detail the Halloween queen was willing to share is that her costume “is a lot.”

“It’s just a lot of everything,” she admitted. “It’s just a lot. A lot of everything.”

Klum has kept quiet over the years because she loves the element of surprise.

“I never really like telling people that,” Klum said. “And that’s also, I think over the years, why he never came out because I never really gave too many hints, and I never told anybody.

“I still feel like it’s fun,” she added. “It’s like a fun guessing game for people and I love surprising people.”

Klum has been dressing up for Halloween for over two decades at this point. She has been many characters, including Fiona from “Shrek”, Betty Boop and Jessica Rabbit. The model also got spooky with her outfits. In 2019, she spent hours transforming into an alien.

“I never want to let these people down,” Klum told Fox News Digital as he competed to continually come up with better costumes. “I always try to come up with something unexpected, something different, something that inspires people to, you know, make their own costume or think of something other than the stereotypical costumes that you see or most people want to do.”

For Klum, one of the most time-consuming costumes was when she was the werewolf in “Thriller.”

“When you see when I’m done, it almost looks like someone stuck that head on, like it’s just like a gigantic mask. But if you saw me in the day or see old pictures of when I do interviews on the red carpet, I mean, everything moves.

“It’s not just a plastic mask that I just put on, put on my head. Everything moved, like my cheeks, when I laughed.”

She credited makeup artists and special effects artists for the beauty of her costumes.

“You can just get an idea,” Klum explained. “But if you didn’t have the artists with amazing hands and their ability to create that, you could never do that. So, you know, I’m still very grateful to them and preparing for that day.”

The former Victoria’s Secret model admitted that while the costumes looked cool, they were “still uncomfortable”.

“It sure is uncomfortable,” Klum told Fox News Digital. “They’re still uncomfortable…but I have no problem with that.

“People are like, ‘Oh my God, that’s pinching. Let me take that off.’ Like, I’m not like that.”

However, Klum has one regret for Halloween.

“Definitely one that I regret is when I was Kali,” she admitted.
