Trick-or-treat courtesy of Nicki Minaj. The Queen Barbie teased fans about her Halloween costume on Twitter all day, and saved the best for last revealing her eye-popping outfit on Instagram. Going as a Dominatrix Police Officer, Minaj is seen posing in front of a mirror with leather high-boots, fishnet leggings, and slim leather straps covering her lower half with only pasties on her upper body. “Officer Minaj. Who wants to get cuffed?,” said Nicki in her last and most revealing photo.

Earlier in the day, Ellen Degeneres showed off her Halloween costume, going as Nicki when she visited the talk-show host’s show back in September.

Although we all apparently missed the memo that blackface was totally cool and not in any way racially insensitive this year (we’ll let David Dennis explain), there were some pretty awesome Halloweens outfits on show from our favorite musicians and celebs.

Miley Cyrus took cues from Lil’ Kim at the 1999 MTV VMAs (without any brown face paint, thank God), Ellen DeGeneres transformed into Nicki Minaj, and morning talk show hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan won every Halloween ever by flawlessly impersonating KimYe. Shout out to Keri Hilson and Serge Ibaka’s Coming to America remake, Iggy Azalea, aka Cruella de Vil, and WWE wrestler Mark Henry, who basically became Rick Ross by reflex. Nicki Minaj saved the best for last with an eye-popping dominatrix ensemble, while Drake went as his music idol Kanye West while backstage of his “Would You Like A Tour?” stop in Washington D.C. on Thursday night.

Sidebar: Baby Bash just upstaged Snoop Lion on his very first Halloween.
