What is Halloween if not a time to let your freak flag fly, let your hair down and dress up as whomever you damn well please? For most of us, this is probably going to look a lot like our favorite celeb and a lot less like a certain costume that requires a pair of scissors and a bed sheet.
But really, Halloween is kind of awesome for this reason. You could spend hours putting together all your gore and guts to frighten the kids on your block, or you could spy on a few celebrities and figure out how to put their iconic look together in just a few minutes. And you probably already have a bunch of this stuff hanging up in the back of your closet.
If you’ve got a white shirt, a denim button-down shirt, a pair of sunglasses and a hat, then you’ve got yourself a living tribute to Eazy-E. (And if you haven’t seen Straight Outta Compton yet, go watch it right now. It’s that good.)
2. Janelle Monáe
Janelle Monáe’s classic suspenders and bow tie? So easy an adorable little girl can do it.
3. Amber Rose
This dude gets all the credit for owning it in a black bodysuit and sunglasses as Amber Rose.
4. Katy Perry
Aaaand it’s that easy. If you have a blue wig and a wacky dress lying around, you too can be Katy Perry this Halloween.
5. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp on Halloween means shaggy hair, a stylish hat, glasses, a flannel shirt and a big ole scarf. Check, check, checkity check.
