Every year I have trouble deciding what I want to be for Halloween. You’d think after 27 years of celebrating the same holiday on the same date I’d think ahead, but it’s like I’m surprised every time. If you’re like me, then you probably don’t have a costume planned yet either- well, never fear. The Stitely staffers (and a few friends) put their heads together and came up with a fantastic list of music-related costume ideas. Enjoy!
Katy Perry– Click here for directions on how to make this costume.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart– Don’t forget to practice the “Amadeus” laugh.
Michael Jackson– This costume is always a “Thriller.” (Sorry, had to do it.)
“Devil in a Blue Dress”– Step 1: Wear blue dress. Step 2: Add devil horns & tail.
Devo– All you need is a flower pot and a “whip.”
Bob Dylan– Click here to get a how-to and links to important accessories.
The White Stripes– Super simple couples costume- just wear black, red and white. Add a black wig and drumsticks.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne– Another fun couples costume.
Elton John– Don’t forget the shades.
Janis Joplin or Jimi Hendrix– Easiest costumes in the world! Bust out your fav bell-bottom jeans or go to a thrift store, pair with a psychedelic shirt, and put a headband or bandana around your head. Don’t forget to accessorize: for Janis bring out a whiskey bottle and for Jimi use a real or inflatable guitar.
A Mariachi Band– Grab 4 friends and a sombrero.
iPod– Now THIS takes talent!
