Russell Wilson And Ciara

Most of the time, fans only get to see the serious side of athletes. Halloween weekend always seems to bring out the best in people. Below are some of the best costumes worn by athletes during Halloween weekend (and some, by fans).

2015 Halloween Costumes


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Popeye, you've had enough spinach.


Alex Ovechkin

Ovie dressed up as Matt Harvey ... Batman. His fiancee, Nastya Shubskaya, matched as Batgirl.


T.J. Oshie

The Washington Capitals winger's wife has her dalmatian on a leash. Lauren Oshie dressed as Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians.


Oklahoma City Thunder

There is a lot going on here, but take note of Steven Adams as the Joker from The Dark Knight, Kevin Durant as Miles Logan of Blue Streak and Russell Westbrook as Steven Adams.


Deron Williams

D-Will jumps on the Game of Thrones bandwagon with a Khal Drogo costume.


Dirk Nowitzki

Apparently Lurch from The Addams Family is a hit among Germans. After all, Frankenstein was created in Germany.


Tony Stewart

Tony Stewart dressed as his alter ego, "Tanya." Here he is with Kurt Busch's crew chief, Tony Gibson, who dressed as an expletive.


Jim Harbaugh Baby

This kid is not an athlete (yet), but he dresses the part.


Jim Harbaugh Dog

Oh, and here is the canine version.


Kevin Blackistone

The Around the Horn analyst went all in with a James Harden costume on-air.


Tim Tebow and Paul Finebaum

Tim Tebow dressed as (an incredibly jacked) SWAT team officer arresting Paul Finebaum, costumed as a jockey.


Bob Stoops

The Oklahoma coach turned into Yoda after the Sooners handled Kansas, 62-7.


BYU Football Team

The Cougars dress up as players from Remember the Titans, which may have outdone their costumes from The Sandlot a year ago.


Chris Bosh

The two-time NBA champ is Captain America for a night.


Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis

The Penguins winger is timely with a Marty McFly costume, while Pascal Dupuis dons a respectful Minion costume.


D'Angelo Russell

The Lakers rookie embraces Los Angeles as Eazy-E.


Dion Phaneuf

The Maple Leafs captain takes Halloween seriously.


Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky

The couple turns into vampires by night.


Hope Solo

The USWNT goalkeeper usually intimidates, but on this night, she was chicken.


Jack Eichel

The Buffalo Sabres mega-rookie is also a fashionable unicorn.


Jaromir Jagr

The NHL legend is some sort of vampire-alien.


Julian Edelman

This is probably photoshopped, but it should still make Bill Belichick cringe.


LeBron James

Even a king can be Prince.


Lindsey Vonn

The skier gets in the spooky spirit.


Tom Brady And Gisele

That mask looks overinflated.


Luke Kuechly

The Panthers linebacker mocks his quarterback. Never hit the redshirt in practice.


Marlins Man Kid

The man, the myth, the legend.


Sydney Leroux And Dom Dwyer

The soccer star couple crushes the Serena-Drake game.


Mo Williams And J.R. Smith

Not that Smith ever acts like a baby ...


Mo Williams And Kevin Love

K-Love rocking the fictional Flint Tropics jersey from Semi-Pro.


Nick Young

Because Swaggy P.


Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson goes with the standard Dark Knight look. Girlfriend Ciara complements as Catwoman.


Novak Djokovic And Boris Becker

The current and former tennis stars apparently take this picture from Paris.


Phil Kessel

Good, the U.S. could use some top-notch American tennis talent.


Robin Lopez

He is new to New York and does not know there is only one Thor: Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard.


Brooklyn Nets

Brook Lopez (Darth Vader) would not be outdone by his twin brother and rival center, Robin.
