AceShowbiz - Heidi Klum went all out again for this year's Halloween. After hinting at her "much scarier" costume with a Spotify playlist that she created, the German model finally unveiled her costume as she arrived at her annual Halloween party in New York City on Tuesday, October 31, dressing up as the werewolf from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video.

Speaking to ET's Keltie Knight about the reason she chose to dress up as the werewolf in MJ's classic video which premiered in 1982, Heidi said, "Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' video is so iconic and it is so fabulous that we had to redo that for Halloween so we're all learning this dance." She added, "Obviously, I'm not as good as Michael, no one ever will be as good as Michael, but I really tried my hardest."
Heidi needed six hours to get ready for the party. The 44-year-old model and TV personality had been taking to her Instagram account to show the process of her transformation, sharing videos of her getting her makeup done and prosthetic applied.
"All righty, here we go," the mother of four said as she's putting on the costume's heavily-textured torso.
On Monday, Heidi hinted at her "much scarier" costume by creating a playlist that included 29 songs. "I think everyone knows Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love to throw a major party every year!" she said. "Music is essential for a great party, people coming over to your house or even getting ready into your costume."
"So, to make it easier for everyone, I put together my favorite Halloween songs to get you in the mood," the "America's Got Talent" judge continued. She teased her fans. "I even put what you might call an 'Easter egg' on the playlist as a clue to my costume. Let's just say, this year, I wanted to be something much scarier."
She didn't give any further hints about where to find the clue. But aside from MJ's "Thriller", the tracks on the list included "Dracula" by Gorillaz, "Sympathy for the Devil" by Guns N' Roses, "Flesh and Blood" by Oingo Boingo, "Psycho Killer" by Talking Heads as well as three tracks with the word "Ghost" in the title.
Heidi, who is known for her epic Halloween costumes, explained to PEOPLE in September about her decision to go with a scary costume. "This year I'm going to be scary," she revealed. "Not Scary Spice, but I'm going to be scary because last year I was just me, and I had five clones."
