If you want to have the best Halloween ever, Martha Stewart can make your wish come true.

Over the years, she's morphed into a spellbinding sorceress, a golden goddess, a glam vampire – even Medusa for the Oct. 31 holiday. "This year, I have been transformed into Fairy GrandMartha," the domestic diva, 72, tells PEOPLE of her annual autumn makeover, which will be featured on the cover of her magazine's Halloween issue.

Mom-to-be Beyoncé was buzzing around Kanye West's Halloween bash in N.Y.C. – dressed as a bumble bee!

Getting into the Halloween spirit or just out for a fun afternoon? A single Leonardo DiCaprio and good friend Kevin Connolly did some last minute costume shopping together at the Spirit Halloween pop-up shop in West Hollywood. The two pals tried on a variety of monster and ghoul masks, and they hung around for a while checking out the scene. In the end, though, the line was too long, so they decided to hit the road empty-handed. – Dahvi Shira

How Orlando's Universal Resort Just Got Scarier

How Orlando's Universal Resort Just Got Scarier

Dracula and Frankenstein, move over. And take the Wolfman with you.

That unholy trio, made famous by Universal Studios in the 1930s and '40s, no longer scare up the screams they used to, which may explain why the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando has some other cool ghouls up its sleeve. Fiendish. Demonic. And, for those with a taste for true blood, wildly popular.

On special nights during the month, the park is being turned upside down for an after-hours event that calls for 1,000 scare-actors (pronounced "scharacters") to go bump in the night and frighten visitors to the Universal Orlando Resort's 20th annual Halloween Horror Nights, featuring eight walk-through haunted houses and six "scarezones," as well as two live shows. Make that, undead shows.

A word of warning: The houses are realistic and scary. Especially one aptly named "Hades."

The Force Is with the Today Show

A galaxy far, far away came to New York's Rockefeller Plaza Friday morning, and it was 1977 all over again, as the Today show team dolled up for Halloween in their best Star Wars finery.

Bunned up behind the ears in her unflattering wig, Meredith Vieira was Princess Leia, Matt Lauer was a grounded Luke Skywalker, Al Roker came on as Han Solo while Ann Curry breathed heavily as Darth Vader. Natalie Morales dropped in as Padmé Amidala, and Hoda was Yoda (Hoda Kotb, that is). Kathie Lee Gifford went heavy metal, as C-3PO.


Dressing up in elaborate costumes has become a tradition on the NBC morning show. As for this year's retro theme, in a season when The Twilight Saga is all the rage, chalk it up to the current Stars Wars: In Concert show that is touring the country.
