[photogallerylink id=104619 align=left]Who wants to be a rock star? Okay, who wants to be a rock star for Halloween? Time is running short, and unlike Mick Jagger, you probably don’t have time for a Savile Row tailor to whip up something like this bespoke pink number. You might find something comparably natty at the thrift shop, though. And don’t you love dreaming up new people to be?
Take a tip from your pal, Mary: If you’re going to dress up as a pop or rock star, don’t waste time on someone who looks so normal that you spend the night explaining yourself. Lady Gaga eliminates this problem. Entirely. And you have so many options. Turquoise hair, red talon Gaga. Or Born This Way Gaga.
Even Guy Gaga:
Yeah, you might have to spend some time explaining that one.
You could rock a microphone and red wig (unless you’re blessed with ginger hair to start with) and spend Halloween as one of XRT’s newest sensations:
Add a little glitter and you’re Florence Welch.
Guys, you want to dress up, too. Maybe you could scare and thrill the girls as Justin Bieber? A hoodie, old school sunglasses, and brush your hair to the front …
I’m pretty sure Joel Thomas Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, gets his mau5 heads custom-made. You could make your own. Or just tape the kids’ Mickey Mouse ears and Christmas lights to a hamster ball.
Don’t want to go so far as making a mau5 head? Okay, guys. Easy rock star costumes for you:
Sunglasses, 5 o’clock shadow, leather jacket. You are Bono.
Easy guy costume #2: Flannel shirt or simple suit, beard, ukelele. You are Eddie Vedder.
Finally, an easy couples costume: He wears red, white or black. She wears red, white or black and carries drum sticks. You are the the late, lamented White Stripes.
