Don't Be Yet Another Lady GaGa - Make A Katy Perry Halloween Costume From Scratch
September 23, 2010
Halloween is a lot sooner than you might think, and if you’re not interested in a wearing a slutty Skittle or Snooki Halloween costume, the search is on for the perfect, original costume. Since we know there are going to be a lot of Lady Gaga‘s at the Halloween party you’re going to, why not go a different pop star route and be Katy Perry a la the “California Gurls” music video. Whipped cream cans and all.
You’ll obviously need a Betty Page-style wig ($16.55) to get the Katy Perry look down pat.
Thanks to the Halloween “slut rule,” you don’t have to wear much else than this Lunaire Isabella Lace Balconette Bra ($34.99). Plus it’s so sexy, you’ll want to keep it in rotation after trick or treating is over.
You’re also going to need a pair of retro sequin hot pants, and these Patricia Field High Waist Sequin Shorts ($84) are the perfect solution– they look just like Katie’s pair.
Once you pull on some red thigh-high boots, like this FlirtCatalogue pair ($54.95), you’ll almost be set. Now for the finishing touches…
Top it off with a classic red pout– we like Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Legendary ($22), a color you’re sure to want to keep around for holiday parties in December.
