Move over, Heidi Klum. Adele is the new queen of Halloween.

The British soul phenom, who comes to Austin this weekend for a two-night Frank Erwin Center engagement, has been lighting up Dallas for a similar series of gigs just up the highway. According to Guide Live, Adele arrived in the Big D a little early and spent Halloween in Highland Park. Would you like to guess what she dressed up as? I don’t care what your guess is. It’s wrong.

Adele went out into the spooky night as The Mask. Yes, the Jim Carrey character.

The “Hello” hitmaker camouflaged herself in a full character illusion: trench coat, hat and facial prosthetics, according to pictures posted to her Instagram.

Unfortunately, the photos are in black and white, so it’s impossible to really see that neon green pop. But I’d like to point out that Adele’s makeup bears a slight resemblance to “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winner Sharon Needles.

But what’s this? Jim Carrey himself responded to the homage on Twitter? It’s true! And also offensively rooted in stereotypes about British dental hygiene!

Not that you shouldn’t have already been excited for Adele’s Austin shows this weekend, but this might take your interest from piqued to positively smokin’. Remember: No matter what happens, it can’t go worse than her 2007 South by Southwest debut.
