25 Halloween Costumes Inspired By Eminem's Music Video Characters

The many faces of Eminem.

Eminem never waited for Halloween to play dress up.

Beginning with "My Name Is," it became clear that we could count on Em to deliver at least one zany, celeb-referencing, over-the-top, amusing music video per album. And with those videos, we'd often see Marshall Mathers take on plenty more personas than just Eminem and Slim Shady. He was dressing up like your favorite (or, maybe, least favorite) pop star. He was making up characters. He was constantly outdoing his previous antics.

With Halloween just around the corner, there's no better time than now to look back at the many hats -- and masks and wigs and outfits -- that Em has worn in his music videos to provide you with a little inspiration if you're stuck this year.
