Tik Tok: Halloween Is Almost Here - Why Not Be Kesha?

UPDATE: Check out the 2011 Kesha Halloween Costume we’ve curated here

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?

The Basics:

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.

The Outfit:

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).

The Makeup:

Kesha’s makeup formula is pretty simple: lots of blue, glitter and a giant star around the eye. Simple enough:

To create the blue lips and starry eye, use this Blue Hydrator Make-Up ($11.01). Top off the Kesha eye with these cool blue Extra Long Eyelashes ($4.99).

The Accessories:

The key to Kesha’s accessories is Native American-inspired necklaces, an armful of bangles and a fake nose ring.

Kesha’s jewelry is also Native American-inspired, to you’ll need this Native American Indian Costume pendant ($6.79) and this White Leather Indian pouch with fringe ($17.99).

Load up your wrist with a combination of rock and roll studded bangles like this Tarnish Studded Bangle ($28) and colorful, beaded Indian ones like this Navajo Beaded Cuff ($9.50).

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.

Not in the Ke$ha kind of mood? How about a Snooki halloween costume? We have awesome tips for dressing as Katy Perry, Rachel Zoe, and Mad Men’s Betty Draper and Joan Holloway, and Lady Gaga.
