It’s not yet Halloween, but one queen has already graciously served us her hottie-ween look.
On Instagram Sunday, Oct. 24, Megan thee Stallion unveiled her elaborate Halloween costume: a sexified version of Pinhead from “Hellraiser,” complete with a leather bodysuit and assless chaps. The outfit itself is basically a recreation of the Cenobite’s suit, but with very specific parts cut out, namely her bosom and her derrière. It’s giving me geometry and trigonometry.
Megan’s version is similar to drag queen Gottmik’s Pinhead-esque look at the “Drag Race” finale—but dare I say Megan’s is even draggier. I mean, assless chaps? Doesn’t get more drag than that.
You might be surprised by Megan’s pick—Pinhead isn’t exactly a household name—but I’m not. Megan “it’s a discrimination to nerds everywhere” thee Stallion has always been a nerd with niche interests: Aside from being a very open anime fan, she’s also admitted that horror isher favorite movie genre and that she’s writing a horror film of her own! (Still waiting on that, by the way, Meg.)
Incidentally, the new “Hellraiser” reboot was just announced earlier this month. The news drew flak, however, from that side of the internet when it was also announced that a woman, “Sense8” and “The L Word’s” Jamie Clayton, was cast as Pinhead. Gottmik, a trans man, was also approached to audition for the role. (ICYDK, Pinhead was played by a man in the original movie franchise.) The backlash came despite the fact that Pinhead, in the original book by Clive Barker, was written to be of unknown gender and vaguely female-presenting. Dudebros gotta dudebro, I guess.
In any case, while I do like the choice of Clayton as Pinhead, is it too late to get Megan a role too? They could do a “Loki” situation and have her be the sexy alternate universe Pinhead. It won’t make sense logically but it would be good for my heart.
