Just how would you describe the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" cast after they spent Halloween costumed as the Kardashian clan? Yahoo OMG! went for "hilarious," noting on Nov. 1 that the outspoken 8-year-old Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson) herself took on the role of Kris Jenner, while Mama June (June Shannon Thompson) packed herself into a leopard-print dress in an attempt to look like Kim Kardashian (an attempt that might work from a rear-view perspective). Although not as photogenic as their West Coast white trash-esque counterparts, the entire Georgia clan seemed to have fun posing for photos and keeping up with the Kardashians, at least for one night of the year.
In a run-down of who was portraying whom: Besides Honey Boo Boo and her mom, dad Sugar Bear -- who married Mama June in May -- dressed as former Olympian and Kardashian patriarch Bruce Jenner (but looks a little too healthy in his approximation to pull it off). In cross-dress, Honey Boo Boo's sis, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon became a preppie Scott Dissick, while his wife, Kourtney, was played by Anna "Chickadee" Shannon (possibly the closest likeness of them all, sort of). Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, the third sister, wore a hat and tried on Khloe Kardashian for size (and failed).
To complete the photo, Lee "Uncle Poodle" Thompson competed with Mama June, cross-dressing as a Kim Kardashian klone. But to be honest, Uncle Poodle's very mannish features made him more suited to attempting a Khloe look.
“We decided to dress up like the Kardashians because everyone seems to compare our family to them,” Mama June told People magazine. “Now we’re just the redneck version.”
And where was Lamar Odom's stand-in? Hmmm? How about Kanye West? (Perfect substitutes: The "Honey Boo Boo" bunch could have used a couple of cardboard standees -- you know, to give Odom some personality and West the inability to speak.) No doubt Kanye West would've fit right in with the southern family since he now "owns" the Confederate flag...
The photos looked -- if one were to be honest -- as if the Kardashians had gotten all done-up and paid a visit to a carnival's hall of mirrors to take some family photos. But the Georgia crew looked like they were having a good time mimicking Kim, Khloe, and kompany. And on Halloween, isn't that what it's all about?
Still, you have to wonder what the Kardashians will think when they first lay eyes on Honey Boo Boo and her family trying to keep up...
