Halloween came early for several celebrities this year prompting stars like Tracee Ellis Ross, Ciara, Russell Wilson, Missy Elliott, Deon Cole, and more to serve up some seriously creative costumes. Some opted to pay tribute to their favorite icons while others decided to celebrate themselves, flaunting their fierce fashion moments on social media for all to enjoy.
