California girls, look out. Katy Perry will be all over the neighborhood for Halloween this year, while also appearing at countless costume parties, masquerade balls and other seasonal events. Girls of all ages are donning Katy Perry get-ups for the autumn holiday.
Costume shops, Halloween stores and other disguise merchants cannot keep Katy Perry costumes in stock, as the pop star’s fans run “Hot ‘n Cold” to snatch up the popular get-ups.
Celebrity costume fans can create their own Katy Perry ensembles for Halloween without spending a rock star’s fortune to do so or “Waking Up in Vegas” with an empty wallet. It’s easy.
Here’s how to dress up as Katy Perry for Halloween.
Suitable fashion outfits for a Katy Perry Halloween costume are easy to find (or sew). Of course, the loudest colors and boldest prints are the best for the pop star’s look. Thrift stores and resale shops may offer large selections of 70’s-style mini dresses or short rompers with large floral, polka-dot or stripe prints.
The most daring Halloween participants may opt for Daisy Duke-style cut-off blue jean shorts with bikini tops, but this style may prove a bit skimpy for many seasonal gatherings and outdoor trick-or treating – and it may not pass muster with moms and dads.
For a more formal Katy Perry look, feathery or frilly formal dresses (think cast-off bridesmaid gowns or prom dresses) may be just the ticket.
Katy Perry wigs (primarily in purple, black and blue) are available from many costume shops and costume e-mailers, including Amazon, Costume Kingdom, International Wig, Wow Wigs and Zoogster Costumes.
Prices for Katy Perry wigs range from $10 to $50 or more.
Of course, a leftover Snow White wig or an inexpensive black or bright blue costume wig may be easily adapted to fit a Katy Perry Halloween costume. Even a white, light pink or pale yellow costume wig may be dyed bright blue, purple or black or another vibrant color to complete the Katy Perry Halloween look.
High-heeled shoes or boots are a must for the Katy Perry costume, except for trick-or-treaters, who may opt for more suitable styles. (Who wants to tromp through the neighborhood, aerating each lawn with stiletto heels on Halloween?)
Finally, tons of girlie accessories (hair bows, long beaded necklaces and bangle bracelets) and colorful cosmetics (including extra-bright lipstick) complete the look for the Katy Perry Halloween costume.
