From Kylie Jenner as a butterfly to George Clooney as a pilot, social media's been flooded with international celebs sporting fantastic Halloween costumes over the past couple of days. But don't feel left out: our local A-listers have also been getting in on the action — they just didn't know it!

Here are five times SA celebrities 'accidentally' dressed up for Halloween:

LADY ZAMAR AS MYSTIQUE

Lady Zamar's been getting a rough time from Twitter's fashion police, one of whom pointed out that in this blue lace jumpsuit she looked an awful lot like X-Men's shape-shifting mutant, Mystique.

BOITY THULO AS NICKI MINAJ

When this shot of Boity Thulo in a platinum blonde wig, shades and a fur coat popped up on our Instagram feeds our first thought was Wuz Dat?. The local celeb clearly channelled Nicki Minaj when reinventing herself as a rapper.

YOLANDI VISSER AS MR DOODLE

In this Zef Couture puffa jacket, Die Antwoord star could double as Instagram sensation Mr Doodle — or one of his canvases. This English artist describes the quirky doodles he creates as "Graffiti Spaghetti".
