It’s rare to see two celebrities wearing the same Halloween costume, but this year it seems that people were short on ideas. In addition to both Kim Kardashian and Demi Lovato dressing up as the singer Selena Quintanilla, both Lady Gaga and Rami Malek attended Halloween parties as Edward Scissorhands, the title character from Tim Burton’s 1990 film starring Johnny Depp, who originated the role, and Winona Ryder.

Both of their looks were traditional, with the character’s face slashes, black leather stomach bondages, white blazers, and general pallid and ashen skin. So, as the generic term dictates, who wore it best? First up is the recently engaged Gaga, who debuted her look on Instagram with the cheeky caption: “Would you like a hair cut!” (Yes, yes we would.):

Meanwhile, Internet boyfriend and Mr. Robot star Malek attended the Jonathan Ross halloween party in London while keeping his deathly hands in check.
