So, what are you going to be for Halloween this year?
Not sure yet? You’re not alone.
To help you find the perfect costume this year, we put together 13 cheap and easy rockstar DIY’s. Rockstars always turn heads wherever they go, and with one of these rockin’ costumes you’re sure to do the same.
Let’s get this party started!
These are great easy DIY Halloween costumes you can wear all on your own or with a backing band.
1. Paul Stanley
Mastering the facepaint is key to getting the KISS frontman’s iconic look. Once you have your face right, you’ll be instantly recognizable.
Pair your perfectly painted face with black clothes for an easy look, or for a twist add a striped shirt and a beret – voilà, French KISS.
2. Bruce Springsteen
It’s easy to be the boss for Halloween. All you need to get this look is blue jeans, a white t-shirt, and a red bandana.
Break the ice with a cutie at the party by inviting them to dance on stage with you, just like Bruce’s “Dancing in the Dark” video.
Making a DIY Madonna costume couldn’t be simpler. Head to your local thrift store and pick up a short 80s style dress, lace gloves, and lots of bracelets and pearls.
For an added bonus, carry a microphone (or make one out of a paper towel roll).
4. 90s Grunge Look
Depending on your lifestyle, this look might not be much of a stretch. But if you tend to be more polished and dressy, the grunge look could be a great change of pace for you.
Channel your favorite alt rock stars of the 90s with oversized shirts and jeans, and of course lots of flannel.
5. Joan Jett
Be one of the baddest women in rock and roll this Halloween with this simple, classic look. Pair tight jeans with a leather jacket, add a lot of attitude, and you’ve got this DIY Halloween costume down.
Carry a guitar with you, and you’re sure to be a runaway hit at the Halloween party.
6. 80s Glam Rocker
Big hair and tight pants are what this costume is all about. Tease your hair or find a wig at the Halloween store, and don’t forget to wear lots of eyeliner.
Wear an old loose tank top or cut up a t-shirt to get this glam look on a budget.
7. Stevie Nicks
Stevie’s signature style includes scarves, hats, and anything long and flowing. Wear your hair long and wavy and unleash your inner mystical wild child.
If you have an old witch costume with a long skirt, you might even be able to repurpose it into a Stevie Nicks look.
These DIY couples costumes are sure to make a splash. Pair up with your partner or a good friend and get to work!
8. Justin and Britney
Bring some early 2000s nostalgia to the party and make a grand entrance with your partner in Justin and Britney inspired head-to-toe denim.
9. Weezer’s “Buddy Holly”
Sick of homies dissing your girl? Show the world that you don’t care what they say about you anyway with this easy DIY Halloween couples costume.
All you need to do is pull together a couple of squeaky clean preppy outfits. One of you will need glasses like Buddy Holly, and for the other flipped hair like Mary Tyler Moore.
10. Hall and Oates
Make your Halloween dreams come true with this easy DIY costume perfect for a fun-loving twosome. Head to a thrift store for 80s-style blazers and feather your hair.
To make it a little more obvious, you can write “Hall” and “Oates” on your t-shirts.
11. Taylor Swift’s 1989 Vs. Ryan Adams’ 1989
Got bad blood? Bring your rivalry out on Halloween with this timely costume.
Get the polaroid look of the album cover by cutting frames out of large pieces of cardboard, and be ready to sing songs from 1989 all night long!
12. David Bowie and David Bowie
Did someone say David Bowie? From Ziggy Stardust to Jareth the Goblin King, David Bowie has had more iconic looks than you can shake a spandex jumpsuit at.
Celebrate Halloween in style with your best friend or partner by dressing as some of David Bowie’s different looks throughout the years.
13. John and Yoko
Dress as the original iconic rock and roll couple and make a statement this year. All you need is long hair, white clothing, and love.
