When it comes to creating Halloween costumes, we couldn’t
help but get a little song-spiration from our fave stars. Whether you’re
trick-or-treating, hitting a Halloween bash or just braving a haunted hayride
this year, you’re bound to get a round of applause when you step out in a
creation inspired by these top tunes. So grab the glitter, face paint and your
guitar and get ready to rock this year’s spooky season.
“Firework” by Katy Perry
This costume calls for
glitter, glitter and more glitter! Start off with a colorful or glittery tutu
or poufy skirt and a shiny patriotic top. Cut gold stars out of felt or fabric
and glue long, colorful ribbons onto the backs. Use safety pins to secure stars
onto your clothes and tie the leftover ribbons into your hair so that they fall
at the same length as your locks. Finish off with some glittery hairspray,
shimmery body lotion and some sparkly eye shadow and nail polish.
“Baby” by Justin Bieber
You’re never too old for
trick-or-treating when you go out in this adorable garb. You’ll want to wear
your most comfy PJs (footie pajamas work best). Next, carry a teddy bear and
search for a bottle or rattle to bring along. You’ll stay warm and cozy all
Halloween in this Justin-inspired costume.
“Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye
Copy this music video’s
style and you’re sure to steal lots of costume compliments. Wear something with
a bold pattern (anything with shapes would be perfect), then use face paint to
draw large geometric shapes onto your face, neck, arms and legs. And that’s it!
Everyone will want to know the girl in this creative costume.
“Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen
You’ll need lots of fabric
paint or permanent markers for this crafty getup. Start with a plain white
T-shirt and draw lines along the front about two or three inches apart so that
the shirt looks like a piece of loose leaf paper. On one of the top lines,
write “Call Me?” in big letters. Draw a box on the next line with the word “yes,”
a box with the word “no,” on the line below, and then a box with “maybe” in the
line under that. Draw a big check in that “maybe” box, doodle hearts, number
signs and question marks everywhere else and tote a toy phone with you all
Halloween night while you act like you’re waiting for that big call.
“Cowboys and Angels” by Dustin Lynch
Take a cue from this
heavenly fave and add some country flare to any angel costume. Cowboy boots and
white, feathery wings are a must. Pair them with jeans or a southern-sweet
skirt and flannel shirt. Then top it off with a cowboy hat, a halo or, hey,
maybe even both.
“Teardrops on My Guitar” by Taylor Swift
First you’ll need a guitar:
a toy one, blow-up one, or a cardboard cutout. Cut blue felt or fabric into
large, oversized teardrops and safety pin them onto your clothes and tape one
to your guitar (Tip: you want the tears to look like they’re falling). Using
face paint, paint a big tear on one of your cheeks, and keep a tissue in your
pocket all night long as you pretend to blot away those tears.

dress as this Halloween? Blog about it, babes.
