Ed Sheeran gets ripped into over Halloween costume as fans ask 'did you even dress up?'

Ed Sheeran gets ripped into over Halloween costume as fans ask 'did you even dress up?'

Fans joked that the singer hadn't put a lot of effort into his Halloween costume

Deciding on a Halloween costume can be quite a difficult task.

So some people decide to take advantage of their features to minimise the fuss - and Ed Sheeran is no different.

He decided to lean into his ginger locks and utilise them to his advantage by dressing up as another famous redhead.

The Grammy-winner got his spooky glad rags on for his gig at Nevada's Allegiant Stadium on Saturday night (28 October).

Though the rest of the world had to wait until it was actually Halloween for Sheeran to reveal what he opted to wear.

Yesterday (31 October), he shared a series of Instagram pictures and wished fans a 'Happy Halloween from Vegas'.

The 32-year-old had got dolled up as serial killer Chucky from American horror franchise Child's Play for the festivities.

Sheeran donned blood-stained dungarees complete with the 'Good Guy' logo, a vibrant stripy top and some Nikes to resemble the disturbing doll.

He had some spooky makeup on as well to elevate his look, while sporting Chucky's trademark facial scars.

Giving the camera a creepy gaze and a menacing grin, the 'Shape of You' singer posed for a series of snaps before heading on stage.

To make sure fans truly understood who he had dressed up as, Sheeran added a picture of Chucky art the end of the image carousel.

As if anyone could get mixed up about who his muse was.

Obviously, the Brit didn't need to do much with his hair for this costume - but social media users were a bit disappointed.

Some people joked that it didn't even look like Sheeran had dressed up and had maybe spilt tomato soup down his dungarees instead.

One comment read: "Why didn't you dress up this year?"

Another joked: "Your Ed Sheeran costume is so dope."

While third added: "Why no costume?"

Another said: "You should always have this outfit on a standby."

And a final user added: "That costume was meant for you!"

To be fair, sometimes the simple route has the best result.

Other fans flooded the post with praise about his performance on Saturday, which marked the end of the US leg of his Mathematics Tour.

The Vegas crowd were treated to an unexpected duet from him and the Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers.

The pair rocked the stage to 'Mr Brightside' together, which Sheeran joked was 'essentially my country's national anthem'.

He isn't wrong!

Sheeran and Flowers finished off with a duet to 'Castle on the Hill' before wrapping up the last US date of his world tour.

He will hit the road again in January when he heads to Japan.
