Star athletes like LeBron James and Stephen Curry are likely popular Halloween costumes among their trick-or-treating fans -- but that doesn't mean the players themselves can't dress up, too!

With Halloween landing on a Tuesday this year, celebrations across the world spanned the entire weekend as well as the first two days of the week.
