Ed Sheeran is embracing the Halloween season with a remarkable metamorphosis, turning himself into one of the most iconic horror movie figures of all time.
The “Bad Habits” crooner donned the guise of Chucky from the Child’s Play film series, portraying the possessed doll controlled by a serial killer that wreaks havoc on an unsuspecting family. Sheeran took to Instagram on Tuesday (October 31) to reveal his uncanny rendition of the sinister doll, extending “Happy Halloween” greetings to his followers. He made the revelation from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, where he had recently staged a performance over the weekend.
In the photos, Sheeran fully embraces the character, sporting a set of grimy overalls over a vibrant striped shirt. His signature red hair is disheveled, and he even added stitches across his face to complete the look. Just in case you’re not familiar with Chucky, Sheeran included a snapshot of the murderous doll himself, complete with a wicked and manic grin.
The “Shape Of You” artist is no stranger to the macabre, recently revealing that he has a chapel in his backyard designated as his final resting place. However, it’s not all dark and gloomy, as he also shared that the chapel has hosted weddings for friends, making it a place of cherished memories.
Sheeran also recently released his third album of the year, a bonus album featuring the same songs as his recent “Autumn Variations” album but recorded in the living rooms of several fans. Describing it as “such a fun way to connect with fans,” these sessions occurred in 14 homes over a span of two days.
