3 DIY Halloween Costumes of Music Stars—Who Are NOT Miley Cyrus
So Halloween weekend #1 has passed, and you're feeling the huge weight of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) after seeing costumes clog your social media feeds. But don't worry, it's not too late. The scariest holiday of the year (besides Valentine's Day) is just getting warmed up as parties continue throughout the next seven days. To spread some more crafty love this year, I'm adding a few more Halloween tutorials to our DIY costume archive!
We here at Yahoo Music are taking the charge against Miley Cyrus costumes, as it is already the most obvious and popular costume of the year. Don't want to be caught with the same costume as ten other girls/boys! So we're giving some love to music stars who were having a stellar year for many reasons—until the Twerk-aggeddon came along.
Re-iterating last year's mantra: My goal for these costumes were to be cheap as possible, completed under an hour, and avoids Halloween-specific shops or costume stores at all costs to save you the last-minute shopping riots. Most of the materials are things you probably already have around the house, or could easily "borrow" from friends, family members, work offices, dumpsters and what have you cost-free.
So get ready to get glue-y, glittery and gorgeous with three more penny-pinching costumes of music stars (who are NOT Miley Cyrus)!
1. Daft Punk Circa "Random Access Memories"
Not only did iconic French DJ-bots Daft Punk get a sound overhaul on their latest album, but they got some fresh duds as well. Ditching the leather motorcycle jackets and pants they've had forever, designer Hedi Slimane (who is also responsible for their leather gear) updated the duo with some slick sequin suits for 2013. With all the fanfare that surrounded the release of their first album in eight years (not including "TRON"), it seemed that people forgot about "Get Lucky" once "Blurred Lines" and "We Can't Stop" started ruling the summer airways. But unlike many, Daft Punk will be forever saved in our cold, digital hearts.
What you need:
Daft Punk materials.
- Black blazer, or closest thing you can get to a tuxedo jacket (Salvation Army, $8.95)
