Halloween Costumes: How To Dress Like PSY, Katy Perry & More
Crunch time has set in and there are only a few days left to create the perfect Halloween costume before October 31. If you're tired of the cliche costumes -- witch, naughty nurse, pirate -- but don't feel like attempting a Honey Boo Boo or Unemployed Big Bird ensemble, check out our list of the top five musicians to dress up as this year. Follow these tips and learn how to snatch up Katy, PSY, Rihanna, Weezy and Florence's looks in time for trick-or-treat.
We've all seen Katy Perry's whipped cream and cupcake costumes fill the streets during Halloweens past, but with a few minutes at the craft table, you can mix it up with a version of her spinning peppermint dress. Although the outfit was retired from Perry's touring wardrobe because of technical difficulties, it can still be resurrected for All Hallows' Eve. To get Katy's candy look, grab a simple white dress and cover it with glitter and peppermint stickers. Then all you need is a black wig and a pair of fingerless red leather gloves to transform yourself into a "Teenage Dream" for the night!
What You'll Need: Fingerless Red Gloves, White Dress, Peppermint Stickers, Black Wig, Red Glitter, White Glitter

For a night of devilish fun, you can ditch the pants and dress as one of music's sexiest women, Rihanna. Dressed in a gold metallic jersey from Jeremy Scott's summer 2013 collection, the "Diamonds" star took the stage at the 2012 iHeartRadio festival, looking like an athletic goddess. You can capture her sporty sex appeal by slipping into a gold jersey, snatching up a leather cap and stepping into a pair of black-high tops. Complete the look with killer shades and dark red lipstick.
What You'll Need: Gold Basketball Jersey, Black Leather Baseball Cap, Sneakers, Dark Berry Lipstick
Florence Welch has always impressed us with her bold and eloquent sartorial choices, and the best way to replicate her chic bohemian style is to keep it simple and free-flowing. Find a billowing green dress that will blow dramatically in the breeze, then pair it with a long red wig. Follow the Florence + the Machine singer's style, letting your locks flow free under a crown of leaves. Keep your foundation clean and neutral, letting a rich red lip and bright green eyes stand out.
What You'll Need: Green Dress, Leaf Headband, Red Wig, Red Lipstick, Green Eye Shadow
