Halloween Costume Ideas for Rockers

One of my favorite things about Halloween is the growing number of women who get dolled up in sexy, revealing costumes.  These days, even the good girls celebrate “dress like a slut night”.   But what if you’re a rocker dude and you’re looking for a costume that’ll stand out in the crowd?

You could go all out and become your favorite KISS character.  However, that requires a lot of work, a steady hand to properly apply your makeup and three buddies who are willing to tag along as the other guys in the band.

If you have an old suit laying around, you could make an Angus Young-style school boy costume.  This costume requires a little bit of work and the ability to perform the patented Angus “duck walk” dance, which is easier said than done after a few beers.

If you dig ZZ Top, all you’ll need is a fake beard, a hat, a guitar and a pair of cheap sunglasses to pull off the Billy Gibbons look.  And, if you don’t have access to a guitar, you can just tell people you’re one of the Duck Dynasty guys.

And finally, if you’re looking for laughs, dressing up as Def Leppard’s drummer is a sure fire way to steal the show at every Halloween party.  This costume is also cheap and easy to make.  You’ll need 3 things:  a curly brown or dirty blonde wig, a Def Leppard t-shirt (a plain white tee with the Def Leppard logo written in Sharpie will work in a pinch) and a single drum stick.  Bonus points if you can find a pair of shorts with the English Union Jack emblem.  Tuck your left arm up into your t-shirt sleeve and you’ll be ready to rock the place to the ground.
