Nobody does Halloween like Heidi Klum!

This year, the Project Runway star will host her 13th annual Halloween bash, and she’s put in some major prep time to come up with a costume that will top her past ensembles. In previous years, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel has stayed away from sexy costumes — see her as a skinless corpse in 2011 and an alien transformer in 2010 — but now that she won’t be coordinating her look with Seal, the single lady has decided to channel her inner goddess.

A video posted to Klum’s AOL channel shows the months-long process that takes the idea from the initial sketch stage to the finished red carpet-ready costume. The first step is a meeting with designer Martin Izquierdo to discuss the concept — Cleopatra. After Izquidero asks what direction she wants to take, Klum sums it up in three words; “Big, gold, glittery!”

Watch the video below to see Klum transform into the Egyptian icon.
