Halloween 2006: Tisha Campbell and TiChina Arnold spoofed Tyra Banks and Miss Jay

Channeling and spoofing celebrities on Halloween is old hat. The trick to standing out among the crowd is to zero in on recognizable, easily caricatured features, or better yet, to pair up to portray closely associated celebs.

Tisha Campbell and TiChina Arnold did just that this year. Treat yourself to a look at these photos at Media Take Out - 2006 -Tisha CAMPBELL DRESSES UP LIKE TYRA, which depict the devilishly funny duo spoofing America's Next Top Model's Tyra Banks and J. Alexander (a.k.a. Miss J. and Queen of the Catwalk).

Coordinating their 2006 Halloween couture was the latest collaboration of the long-term gal pals. For example, in 1986, Ms. Campbell and Ms. Arnold played Chiffon and Crystal [named after two 1960s girl singing groups] in the big-screen version of the science fiction/fantasy/horror film/musical, Little Shop of Horrors, respectively. From 1992-1997, they also co-starred on the small-screen, playing Gina and Pamela on the hit TV sitcom Martin. In 1997, they made tracks on wax, duetting in a remake of the Emotions' hit single "Don't Ask My Neighbors" [on the soundtrack of the "farcical black comedy, Sprung" (1997)].
