Vote for Creepiest Halloween Costume ('The View' edition)

Theview_lMy pal Kristen Baldwin sent me a frantic IM this morning: "Turn on The View. NOW!" Really, her message should have come with a warning — "What you are about to see may result in trembling, emotional scarring, and possible collapse." But since I got blindsided by the sight of the show’s hosting panel in frightening Halloween drag, why should you be spared, PopWatchers? After the jump, check out closeup screengrabs of Barbara Walters as George Washington, Elisabeth Hasselbeck as Ronald Reagan, Sherri Shepherd as a penny, er, I mean Abraham Lincoln, Whoopi Goldberg as FDR, and Joy Behar as Teddy Roosevelt. And do vote in our exclusive PopWatch poll to tell us which costume freaks you out the most.

    Whoopi looks like Kenan-Thompson-as-Whoopi-Goldberg-as-FDR..

  • Stephanie T.

    Whoopi and Liz tie. I mean what the…?

  • Ceballos

    Elisabeth Hasselbeck already kinda freaks me out, so she wins with a nice assist from the wrinkle lines around her mouth that make her look like a puppet.

  • ptk

    Those costume designers must hate Sherri. Her costume isn’t particularly creepy, but it is by far the most awkward to wear!

  • JohnO

    Barbara talking like she had false teeth was very freaky.

  • MRF

    I had a hard time voting for the creepiest costume since they all look just awful.

  • Crystal

    I love ‘em. I mean, shouldn’t halloween costumes BE creepy?! I actually like Joys!

  • lisa

    Did anyone on staff realize that a penny is not the same thing as Abraham Lincoln? A top hat and black suit would have done the job just fine. this is further proof that Sherri is a moron, funny in sitcoms, but an actual moron.

  • Dom

    Oh my God, Hasselbeck DOES look like a puppet. AGH.

  • Stephanie T.

    I think that Sherri was poking fun at our current economic situation.


    Elizabeth Hasselbeck freaks me out because she is just so ummm.. cognitively challenged! She had to have graduated from the Short Bus Academy!

  • adam rich

    Sherri was a penny because her skin tone naturally complements the costume I think, it was an attempt to be clever. While I am personally disturbed by the view as a whole, I think the costumes aren’t too bad. She’s not poking fun at our country’s financial situation, whoever said that. We have a saying in my profession, quit nuking it.

  • econruth

    Barbara Walters (in that pic at least) actually does look a lot like Washington. I can’t believe that no one picked Chester A. Arthur or Franklin Pierce.. Where’s the love?

  • David Bruggeman

    From the long shot, Elizabeth looks a lot more like Dennis Kucinich than the Gipper.

  • Lauren

    I don’t get it…what’s supposed to “freak” us out about the costumes? They’re in costume (good costumes) on Halloween…Yes, aaand….??
