I’m going to be Kesha this year for Halloween (spoiler alert!), and instead of being a holiday Grinch, I’ve decided to share my awesome costume idea with the world. If you’re in the mood to be a hot mess for Halloween – who better than the face-painted, head-dress wearing Kesha?
You must have Kesha’s signature Death to the Pixie t-shirt ($20) to nail her outfit right off. Cut and rip the neckline to get her off-the-shoulder look.
You will need a large feather headress like this Western Authentic Indian Headress ($36.99). Oddly enough, it’s her signature look – you will be recognized at parties for this key accessory.
A Kesha Halloween costume will need the following outfit basics: a studded or patched leather jacket, a leotard or onesie, fishnet tights and combat boots.
To prove you’re really “rock and roll” (wait, isn’t she a pop star?!) you’ll need a Studded Leatherette Jacket ($47.80). Pop stars aren’t wearing much more than a leotard these days (ahem, Lady Gaga) so if you’re bold enough – go for this American Apparel Halter Leotard ($25) underneath.
Pair the plunge neck onesie with these HUE fishnet tights ($12.50) – just like Kesha’s (it might be a little drafty in late October – but suck it up). Top off the look with a pair of combat boots like these Steve Madden Troopa boots ($99.95).
Kesha’s makeup formula is pretty simple: lots of blue, glitter and a giant star around the eye. Simple enough:
The key to Kesha’s accessories is Native American-inspired necklaces, an armful of bangles and a fake nose ring.
If you’re going all the way with this costume, like I am, you will need Kesha’s fake nose ring ($2.99) to complete the look. Ta-da! You’re officially the Queen of Hot Mess USA.
