2019's best athlete Halloween costumes

Athletes are seriously bringing it for Halloween 2019. Some are doing traditional monster costumes. Others are looking to movies for inspiration, showing off as superheroes, villains or memorable comedic roles. A surprising number are dressing up as other athletes. One thing's for certain: These costumes would be contenders at even the most competitive Halloween costume contest. We've got a collection of the best of the best if you're looking for some last-minute costume inspiration. First, DeAndre Hopkins nailed it as Genie from "Aladdin":

Then Olympic gold-winning skier Lindsey Vonn set the bar for inside jokes, jabbing back at Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty. During an October game against the New Jersey Devils, Gritty had held up a sign that said "Lindsey Could Do Better" with arrows pointing at himself as her fiancรฉ, defensemen P.K. Subban, warmed up in front of him.

But Vonn and Subban got the last laugh this week:

Those aren't the only costumes that have been top-notch. Here's the best we've seen:
