Actor Colton Haynes spent five hours transforming himself into classic cartoon character Marge Simpson for a swanky Halloween party on Tuesday (24Oct17).
The American Horror Story star hosted the Freixenet Cava’s 2nd Annual Black Magic Halloween Affair at La Descarga in Hollywood dressed up as a sexy version of The Simpsons persona, but his spot-on ensemble didn’t happen without a little pain.
Colton airbrushed his body with yellow spray paint, donned fake animated 3D eyes, wore false breasts, and plastered outrageous protruding lips on his face to pass as Marge, the cartoon family matriarch.
“(It took) five hours,” he told Us Weekly of his costume preparations. “(There’s) a lot of tape in areas you don’t want tape. My b**ls hurt. It was so fun. I can’t see. It’s worth it! I actually had to mess up the costume. It looked way better, but I couldn’t see (with the fake eyes) so I cut them out myself.”
However, the most uncomfortable part of his costume was his underwear as he squeezed into body-shaping garments.
“The Spanx (hurt). I have padded Spank in here, look at my butt. My groin is painful,” he whined.
But Colton is willing to endure the pain in the celebratory spirit of Halloween and also in honor of his model friend Heidi Klum, who is known for wearing outrageous costumes every year for the spooky holiday.
“I feel like her and I need to come together! We need to unite to be the two queens of Halloween,” he laughed. “I can’t wait to see her. I love her so much. She’s so amazing. Yeah, there’s always a little friendly fire (between) both of us. It was really funny because I was like, finally we meet! She goes, ‘Oh, when are you having your party?’ And I was like, ‘On Tuesday.’ And she was like, ‘You’re getting ahead of the game.’ And I was like, ‘That’s what I do.'”
