2017 Halloween Musician Costumes

Lorde’s look from the Green Light music video

Complexity: 1/5

A purple dress and some Adidas shoes is all you really need for this outfit. Best of all, these Adidas are a nice pair of sneakers so you can get some value out of them.

Pink Dress  ($13 on Amazon)

This isn’t the exact dress (The real one is a 90s Giorgio Di Sant Angelo that costs almost $2000 but it’s as close as you’ll get for a bit over $10. 

Adidas Superstar Sneakers (See sizes on Amazon)

It doesn't really matter if you're planning on going as Lorde or not, you should get these sneakers either way.

<p>They're perfect!</p>

Ed Sheeran’s Look from Shape of You

<p>Maybe check out a thrift shop for the exact jacket</p>

Complexity: 2/5

I love this look because Halloween can get pretty cold and unlike most costumes, this one provides some warmth. You’ll want to grab yourself a varsity jacket, a grey hoodie and a blue beanie.

Varsity Baseball Jacket ($35 on Amazon)

Gildan Grey Hooded Sweatshirt ($25 on Amazon)

Dark Blue Beanie cap ($13 on Amazon)

Beyonce (and her Twins?)

Complexity: 3/5

This one can be especially fun if you’re going trick or treating with two littles ones. Have both of them dress like little bees! As for queen B herself, it’s going to be tough to match this outfit but if you’re close enough most people won’t notice – They'll be too distracted looking at your mini bee colony.

Golden dress ($36 on Amazon)

Kids Bee Costume ($30 on Amazon)

<p>Imagine how cute they'll look in this!</p>

Harry Style’s Today Show look


Complexity: 2/5

This is actually a really stylish look that very few can pull off. Bring your guitar with you for that extra touch.

Pink Suit ($60 Limited Quantities on Amazon)

Men’s Black Shirt (~$20 on Amazon)

Katy Perry’s Spacesuit

Complexity: 5/5

You don’t need the exact spacesuit – it’s actually incredibly tough to find. Get the one below and spice it up with some neon markers, glitter (if you’re cynical) or you can use a bunch of fluorescent sticky notes like the ones below but you’ll need to glue them on from both ends.

Fluorescent sticky notes ($5 on Amazon)
