Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan have outdone themselves!

The Live! With Kelly and Michael co-hosts teased their multiple Halloween costumes all week, and on Friday, they revealed all during the morning show's "Nightmare on 67th Street" episode.

For one of her tributes, Ripa recreated one of Kim Kardashian's iconic magazine covers. With a prosthetic butt that rivaled the E! reality star's famous booty, Ripa balanced a champagne glass on her ass as she popped a bottle of bubbly. Kardashian, who perfected the pose for Paper's Winter 2014 issue, was photographed by the legendary Jean-Paul Goude. The famed fashion photographer used his 1976 photo, "Carolina Beaumont, New York"—more commonly known as "The Champagne Incident"—as the risqué cover inspiration.

Strahan, meanwhile, decided to channel another strong, sexy female for one of his costumes: Cookie Lyon, played by the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated Taraji P. Henson on Fox's Empire. Cookie is a powerhouse in the world of hip-hop on the fictional series, and in real life, Kanye West is just as powerful. Perhaps that explains why Strahan decided to recreate the rapper's Time magazine cover.

The co-host's costumes weren't just inspired by TV and music. With the 2016 presidential election approaching, Ripa dressed up as Republican hopefuls: Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina. (Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and the rest can rest easy.)

Ripa and Strahan wore couples costumes of sorts when they dressed up as Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian from the Star Wars franchise (R2-D2 even made a cameo).

Another winning look was an ode to Katy Perry and her scene-stealing left shark from the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show. Ripa embodied the pop icon while Strahan floundered (ha!) onstage.

As an added surprise, Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford also appeared on Friday's episode.
