It took over six hours for model Heidi Klum to get into her 2023 Halloween costume!

The 50-year-old model best known as the "Queen of Halloween" tries to come up with a new and creative costume each and every year. This year, fans think that she might have outdone herself with a stunning costume that enlisted the help of about ten Cirque du Soleil performers to pull off!

Heidi Klum Spent SIX HOURS Getting Ready For Her Halloween Party!

The former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model is known for her elaborate Halloween costumes, but the one that she wore to her annual party at the Marquee New York on Tuesday might have been one of the most intricate ones yet. The "America's Got Talent" judge admitted that her costume had a lot of "moving parts" when she spoke to Page Six Style through her prosthetic beak at the star-studded event.

“It took about six hours to do this,” she said, admitting that she was "not really anxious" about any wardrobe malfunctions. The only thing she said she was worried about was getting glue in her eyes! Although the feathery lashes were a part of her party prep, Heidi revealed that she was not the only one helping her get into her elaborate costume. “There’s many people, there were 10 artists in there, getting painted with me at the same time,” she said, referring to the Cirque Du Soleil stars who served as her "feathers."

Heidi revealed that, since one person served as the "legs" of the costume, there was a lot of work to be done. “So there’s a lot of moving parts and people needing this and that,” she said. “You know, [hair]spray, and so it’s a lot of commotion with so many people doing this, you know?”

Her Husband Tom Kaulitz Came Dressed As A Giant Peacock Egg!

Even though she enlisted the help of her husband, Tom Kaulitz, last year, she revealed that this year she wanted to make it a group costume. “I thought it would be fun to do a costume with a bunch of people and so I came up with the idea of a peacock and to do this with 10 people and all make an amazing formation and then fan out,” she shared. “We figured out how the positioning would be and who gets what kind of leotard and how is it painted on so that from the front it will look like a peacock."

The Tokio Hotel guitarist came dressed as a giant peacock egg in order to fit his wife's theme. “It’s not easy to come up with something that fits,” he told the outlet. “So peacock, we thought, you know, egg could fit. Big egg!”

Heidi said “We got really stuck on the egg [idea] immediately,” but admitted that very little "brainstorming" went into the costume itself because she knew exactly what she wanted to be this year. “I just didn’t want to do something similar,” she shared. “I feel like I’ve done a lot of prosthetics from head to toe and I’ve done similar things, so I wanted to do something that people had not seen before and that was this for me.”

Heidi Klum Is Famous For Her Costumes!

Last year, the German musician was dressed as a fisherman while Heidi went as a giant earthworm. Last year, Heidi told the outlet that it was very difficult for her to move in the giant costume. “This is one of the top ones I would say, just because it’s so unusual and so big in size and it’s weird,” she said at the time. “It’s hard for me to move. I don’t really have arms or legs. When I fall over I need someone to help me get back up. I’m kind of stuck in it, you know? It feels a little claustrophobic.”

In the past, Heidi has dressed up as Jessica Rabbit, an old lady, Fiona from "Shrek," and various other outfits. So far, the reception to Heidi's 2023 Halloween costume has been positive, although it did ruffle a few feathers!
