Here's Everything You Need To DIY A Katy Perry 'Swish Swish' Costume

Katy Perry’s outfits typically verge on hilarious, outrageous, and downright magical, so we’re not surprised that you want to dress up as the pop star for Halloween. But while many of her looks will require some hardcore crafting skills (because it’s not everyday you can find a frosting gun or a cupcake bra), this “Swish Swish” costume is actually quite simple to create! Here, we’ve uncovered everything you’ll need to emulate the sexy and sporty look from her latest music video.

First off, we have mention that we love the irony of the video. As Katy Perry sings about making “another one in the basket,” she seems to do everything but that while dribbling down the court with her team of non-athletes. To embody the humor of this look, start with a pair of spandex tiger print shorts. Not only do they reflect the spirit of her team’s name (the Tigers), but their flexible material will provide ultimate comfort throughout the night! Let’s just say that Jessica in the latex cop costume will be jealous after hour three.

For the top, you can really choose any jersey you like. A plain black version is always a safe bet. But if you really want to go the extra mile, there are a variety of sites you can use to personally design your own option – from the shirt style to the monogrammed name! You’ll obviously want it to say “Tigers” across the front, but you can also choose a tight front zip construction to really nail Katy’s look. Pair the piece with a cute bandeau underneath for an extra ounce of flirty flair – because even in gym clothes, Katy is always the queen of style and sass.

Basically, that’s pretty much all there is to it. You can top off the outfit with some sporty accessories like a wrist sweatband and add your favorite pair of kicks into the mix. We’re currently digging Adidas Stan Smiths and the sleek Nike Cortez shoe. We don’t about you, but we think this is a great excuse to indulge in our latest sneaker obsessions.

And if you want to really convince everyone that you’re Ms. Perry’s alter ego, you can even choose to wear a platinum blonde pixie wig. The star’s barely-there look became all the rage when she first made the chop back in May (in fact, we like it even better than her once long brunette locks, perky pink bob, and rainbow highlights). So if you decide to make the drastic change after just one night of sporting the fabulous cut, we won’t judge.
