If you just love drama then you probably love the viral social media sensation Joanne the Scammer. Joanne, a.k.a. Branden Miller, seriously makes us crack up with her sassy sayings and not to mention, we adore her fierce looks. Social media and meme costumes are honestly the go-to costumes this year, um hello Salt Bae costume. So, why not DIY your own Joanne the Scammer Halloween costume this year? To be honest, some of the pieces that you’ll need to buy can also become some of your everyday fall wardrobe staples.
Now, let’s think of what to wear for your Joanne the Scammer costume. Joanne keeps it pretty simple for what’s beneath her iconic fur coat, and has been seen many times sticking to a basic LBD. This black cami dress is not only comfortable, it’s also super affordable thanks to its $10 price mark.
Of course the one essential you must have for your Joanne costume is her infamous fur coat. This faux fur coat is a more affordable option than most and will only cost you about $35, although the price does vary depending on the size that you order. The good part is that this coat is chic enough that you can continue to wear it long after Halloween is over.
Next, you need to achieve Joanne’s hair. Branden Miller obviously wears a wig for this part of his costume, so you can too– unless you already have a similar hairstyle. This wig seriously looks just like the Joanne wig, and it’s so inexpensive too. It doesn’t look ridiculously fake and it will only cost you just under $17. How amazing is that?!
For one of your final costume pieces you’ll need a pair of heels.
