"I always love to have Halloween costumes where I can be interactive because most of the time I'm going to a Halloween party , so you want to be able to talk and hangout with everyone at the party," Kinney says in the video above. Another one of the star's dressing-up rule? Nothing too scary. "With being on The Walking Dead, we're always around that crazy zombie makeup and stuff like that, so I almost try to stay away from too scary of makeup because I'm like around it all the time. I try to do something a little happier!"

"One of my favorite costumes was a Magic 8 Ball," she shares. "It was so fun, I might actually bring it back this year because I'm hosting a Halloween party and I'm going to be playing and singing, and I thought that would be a good one for the crowd so they could ask me questions." Kinney's other best costume moment is definitely one that was suited to dancing. "One year I was Kesha and that was a pretty good one too," the actress shares. "I do like a dollar sign over my eye—I do like cool makeup. The Kesha one was really fun."
