“American Idol” has been a constant source of gossip and speculation in the Entertainment news sector since the end of last season. After Ellen left and Kara was let go, much conversation was centered around who would take the judges’ spots for the next season of the popular program. Many names were bandied about, including Brett Michaels and Harry Connick Jr, until it was finally announced that the two open judge spots would go Aerosmith lead vocalist and founding member, Steven Tyler and singer and actress, Jennifer Lopez. Surely, there will be many Halloween costumes fashioned after the famous musicians and American Idol judges next year, but you can be ahead of the pack this year by dressing you and your mate in costumes of the famous celebrities.
Steven Tyler Costume: Steven Tyler is known for his wild rock n’ roll clothing and his unique fashion sense. While his hair has been many lengths over the course of his life in the public eye, he currently wears it in a shoulder length style in a dark brown color. Your husband or boyfriend can wear his hair long and loose with some waves in it. Application of some blond, pink or purple streaks is a fun addition and entirely appropriate for the costume. A basic wig in this color and style can be purchased wherever Halloween supplies and costumes are sold and can be cut or colored with temporary spray as desired. Steven Tyler is known for wearing black nail polish so this is a must, as well as a black teardrop tattoo near his eye. This can be achieved with the use of cosmetics or a kit filled with Halloween makeup. Steven is famous for performing with Aerosmith dressed in long sleeve button up shirts open down to the chest and tight leather or spandex pants. Boots can worn as footwear to the Steven Tyler costume. There is no hard and fast rule to dressing up as the iconic singer so your mate can take some liberty and dress as outlandishly as desired.
Jennifer Lopez Costume: Jennifer Lopez is a gorgeous singer and actress that is known for her impeccable appearance and ever changing style. She generally wears her hair long with loose waves in a dark brown color. If you are lucky enough to have Jennifer Lopez style hair, simply set it with some large barreled hot rollers and then arrange it in a casual beach style. She has been photographed many times in a high ponytail with the top brushed back so this hairstyle is also very appropriate. Her style of dress ranges from sixties style dresses to glamorous evening gowns to mini skirts that show off her long legs. Again, some liberties can be taken with this costume as long as the clothing is form fitting, stylish and exudes a sense of fashion and style. The singer is also known for her love of fur coats, so an imitation fur jacket or stole can be worn over the ensemble. Jennifer is known for her attention to jewelery, so a few great pieces are all it takes to accessorize the Jennifer Lopez costume. Large hoop earrings can be worn if the hair is styled in a high ponytail. Her makeup is always impeccably applied, so a full face of cosmetics is perfectly appropriate.
Fun Extras For Steven Tyler And Jennifer Lopez Costumes: Prop or real microphones can be carried by both members of the couple. If desired, the male half of the duo can tote around a microphone stand with the added flair of Steven Tyler’s scarves draped around it.
