The NBA star using Beetlejuice's iconic "showtime" catchphrase is likely a fun nod to his NBA team's "Showtime Lakers" era
The NBA star, 38, dressed up as Beetlejuice from the 1988 movie by the same name, while Savannah, 37, looked stunning as the Miss Argentina character from the film.
LeBron and Savannah shared photos of their costumes in Instagram Reels posted on Tuesday.
The Lakers star rocked the character's iconic maroon suit, complete with a full face of costume makeup and Beetlejuice's signature shaggy hair.
"IT'S SHOWTIME!!!!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN YOU CRAZIES! But C’Mon man! Just Say my name 3 times," LeBron wrote in the caption of his post.
The Beetlejuice character is known for his "It's Showtime," catchphrase in the film, which may be a fun nod by LeBron to his NBA team's former Showtime Lakers era, which began when Magic Johnson was drafted to the team in 1979.
Savannah, dressed in Miss Argentina's sash and gown (swapped out for a Mrs. Akron Ohio sash), shared the photos on her page with a trigger warning for "effects makeup" and wrote, "Miss Argentina but from 330😉 And the bane of the underworld, Beetlejuice," in the caption.
The mother of three went all out for her costume, covering herself in teal body paint for the look.
The couple have been Halloween fans for quite some time. In 2019, they threw their annual Halloween bash, and LeBron wowed as Edward Scissorhands, while Savannah was equally as impressive in her Medusa costume, per The Los Angeles Times.
The couple celebrated Zhuri's ninth birthday earlier this month and posted sweet tributes to their only daughter on social media.
“Happy Bday My Princess 👸🏾 Z,” LeBron wrote in the caption of his carousel of snaps. “Love you ♾️ and more!!! 🤎🤎🤎🤎✨✨✨✨✨✨✨🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾.” The father-of-three’s post contained an image of Zhuri smiling in front of a multicolored balloon backdrop with a “Happy Birthday" light.
“Happiest Birthday to my favorite girl!!💕🥰🏾🎉🤎,” Savannah captioned a video of her daughter chatting in a pink chair. “I can’t believe the baby of my babies is 9🥲 #ZhuriNova," she sweetly added.
Big brother Bronny James also posted snaps of his sister on his Instagram Story, writing, “lil sis day happy birthday z love youuu,” as she sat in a cardboard box next to the family’s pet dog, Indigo. He then shared a selfie with his little sister alongside the caption, "libra sznnnnnn."
In July, the Los Angeles Lakers star praised his wife when he took to the stage to accept the Best Record-Breaking Performance at the ESPYs.
"If any of y’all know her — I know that there’s a few people in here that know her — you know she doesn’t ever do s--- like this, ever,” LeBron said.
“And the fact that I’m loving it that y’all get to see the queen that I live with every day. Kudos to you, baby.”
He continued, "For our family, no one has sacrificed more and more hard work to support this family more than you and I appreciate you for that, love you.”
