Daytime stars got creative channeling real and fictional characters for Halloween.
Even though they play fictional people every day for their jobs, soap opera stars enjoy getting into character for Halloween as well. This past weekend saw former and current stars from All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless channeling movie characters, cartoon characters, a soft rock music duo and just enjoying the Halloween season. Soaps.com rounded up Instagram posts showcasing daytime actors’ fun and inspired costumes.
The Bold and the Beautiful
Annika Noelle (Hope Logan) impressively transformed into Batman’s nemesis from the movie Joker with the caption, “Send in the clowns 🤡 #Joker ‘Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?” Meanwhile, Jennifer Gareis (Donna Logan) was the sexy Jessica Rabbit at a Casamigos Halloween party. Along with a bunch of red lip emojis, she said, “Never too old to dress up!”
Days of our Lives
Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera) and his wife hilariously dressed up as the singing duo Hall & Oates, while, like Noelle, Victoria Konefal (Ciara Brady) put her spin on the Joker. Twins Griffin and Aaron Kunitz (Johnny DiMera) were dead ringers for three Stranger Things characters: the ice cream serving Steve Harrington, his younger BFF Dustin Henderson and the Demogorgon monster who hunted them all on the Netflix sci-fi show.
Mark Lawson’s (Dustin Phillips) family also channeled Batman characters as each one was a different villain from the comic books and movies. Lawson was Bane while his kids were the Riddler, Two-Face and the Penguin, and his wife was Poison Ivy. He gave a shout out to his mother for his daughters’ costumes. Haley Pullos (Molly Davis Lansing) was Alice from the movie Closer, played by Natalie Portman, and Risa Dorken (Amy Driscoll) headed to Disneyland to celebrate with her husband while wearing Minnie Mouse ears. However, she noted “Wearing matching shirts was his idea.. 🎃☺️🧡HAPPY HALLOWEEN”
The Young and the Restless
Gina Tognoni (ex-Phyllis Summers) and her husband channeled iconic country duo June and Johnny cash, while Bryton James (Devon Hamilton) and Brytni Sarpy (Elena Dawson) were smoking hot as Tyler Durden and Marla Singer from Fight Club. Jessica Collins posted a flashback photo from 2016 when she dressed up as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones while her baby and husband were her dragons. She also added an adorable photo of her daughter at a pumpkin patch with the caption, “Happy Halloween Week! Who’s ready??? 🎃👻💀”
