Normally I reallllly procrastinate on my Halloween costumes and am definitely the person scrapping together my costume hours before I need it. Because of this, I have had some interesting (aka bad) costumes. I always like the idea of being something really epic or cute for Halloween, but somehow I always end up being things like a shrimp, lion, or ewok (except ewoks are awesome.) . I want you to have an killer costume this year so I have compiled my favorite rockstar ideas for your last minute costume.
Since you are a musician, I assume you probably have the following lying around the house somewhere:
A single earring with a feather
A fro and a top hat
A scarf collection
Some tall stompy boots
Some round glasses that have yellow/ pink/ blue lenses
Something leopard print
Ok here we go!
Simon and Garfunkel
Feel groovy and live your ‘70’s dreams with these Simon and Garfunkel costumes. All you need is a cool blazer and if you already have a blonde fro you’re in business!
If you are reading this, I bet you are a rockstar and already have an endless supply of studded jackets and rhinestone belts, so this one should be easy.
Ok let’s be real, I would be Shania most days of the year. All you need is a leopard hoodie for this one tho!
Do you go for costumes in which no one will know what/ who you are! Try this ole classic! It will be like a test of your friends’ knowledge of 70’s progressive rock!
Be one of my fav guitarists!
Green Day (circa early 2000’s)
Live your sad boy dreams and pull out the guy-liner (or just normal eyeliner if you are a female) with these Green Day costumes!
This one wouldn’t really be last minute (unless you are a sewing wizard!) but it would be EPIC!
SHE’S SO COOL. Just get some black flowy things and you’re set.
Slash and Axel (Guns ‘N Roses)
I tried to be Slash this year and couldn’t find a hat that fit ma head!
Twenty One Pilots
Red hair dye
Red eye shadow
Done and done.
I’m pretty sure I used to have the girl version of this Hurley shirt in Jr. High. So classic.
If you have any ideas or have dressed up as a rocker before, share below! Also i would LOVE if you tagged me (@haleypowersmusic) if you end up being a musician for halloween. Thank you so much for reading and you are amazing!
