Athletes’ Best Halloween Costumes of 2019

Athletes really are just like us. Sure, they may be able run like the wind and complete superhuman acts of strength but they also love Halloween like mere mortals. It’s the only time of the year when they can slip on a mask or paint their face and slip into a crowd unnoticed. (Unless they’re like JuJu Smith-Schuster, who last year went trick-or-treating around Pittsburgh in his full Steelers uniform—helmet, pads and all.)

They also have more money than the average Joe, which allows them to hire professional makeup artists and such to send their costumes over the top.
