We know that Lea Michele (Rachel) is a pretty big fan of Halloween. So how did she spend October 31 this year? Well, you might be surprised.

Lea started the Halloween celebration early this year, as she attended a Halloween party last weekend. She and a pal dressed up as matching German barmaids, with Lea wearing a dirndl and putting her hair in adorable pigtails.

The actual evening of Halloween was sadly a different story. Instead of engaging in holiday revelry, Lea and her fellow Glee cast members were hard at work shooting the show. Indeed, Naya Rivera posted a photo on Instagram of herself with co-stars Lea and Chris Colfer.

“How the NYC crew does Halloween! @msleamichele @hrhchriscolfer,” Naya captions the adorable selfie.

Granted, we’d love to see Lea in a new costume on the big night, but this cute pic more than makes up for it. We love each of their facial expressions in it, as Chris looks nonchalant, Naya appears mischievous, and Lea looks downright delighted. Plus, how cute are Lea’s hands?

The show is currently in the middle of shooting Season 5, Episode 7: “Puppet Master,” so it makes sense that the cast couldn’t get the night off. And we’re definitely looking forward to this episode, featuring the characters as puppets, so we don’t really want to delay it. Long story short: We appreciate your sacrifice, you three!
