To make up for not having another one of her signature big bashes, the 47-year-old America’s Got Talent star decided to go over-the-top anyway – with a full horror movie production on her Instagram on Saturday (October 31).
The short film, called “Heidi Does Halloween,” features her four kids – Leny, Henry, Johan, and Lou – and husband Tom Kaulitz, as they all turn into zombie-mummies after getting wrapped in the toilet paper that they stocked up on back in March.
To escape them, Heidi blends into the background using body paint in various areas of her home, including art on the wall and a duvet cover.
“Halloween is different this year, but that shouldn’t stop us from getting creative at home,” she captioned the mini video, adding: “Be safe, be spooky, and spend time with family,” she captioned the post.
Each disguise took about seven hours to create, she said.
“Once the paint was done, we traveled to set where we continued to perfect the look for another two hours or so…with lockdowns around the world this year, no Halloween parties or trick-or-treating, I knew I wanted to do a fun project at home with my family so I came up with the idea of shooting a short horror film that we could all star in. It was such a fun way to get the whole family involved and my kids really enjoyed the process. Even though they have come to visit me on set many times throughout the years, they have never been in front of the camera like this learning how to remember lines and how to create costumes and makeup for a short film,” she told People.
