With her signature face-covering black-and-blonde wigs and gigantic bows, Sia is hands down the coolest pop star to dress up as this Halloween. Pretty much all of her looks are iconic, but we’re particularly loving this ensemble comprised of a grayish blue dress with fluttery sleeves.

Carrie Underwood

Replicate this country music superstar’s dynamic on-stage look with a nude-colored bodysuit tucked into a matching voluminous high-low skirt. Fireworks and jukebox not included.

Demi Lovato

Channel Demi Lovato vibes for Halloween in this epic all-white look. All you need is a few pieces that you may already have in your closet: a white top, high-waisted shorts, and jacket. To complete Lovato’s edgy look, add some DIY white embellishments to the jacket, make your hair nice and sleek, and finish with bronzy cheeks.

Gwen Stefani

Leave it to rock star Gwen Stefani to don an utterly cool space-themed look like this one. Copy her ensemble for Halloween with galaxy-inspired shorts, black over-the-knee socks, and a shiny silver turtleneck blouse.

Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas can rock a head-to-toe leather look like it’s nobody’s business. Get his MTV VMA performance look by wearing a forest green leather jacket with a matching pair of pants and accessorize with a microphone.

This pink look on Drake, a.k.a. Champagne Papi, would make a unique costume for Halloween with lots of swag. All you need is a pink soccer jersey, a gold chain, and see-through pink shades.

Keith Urban

This country music star’s look is simple, but statement making. All you need is a pair of leather pants, a distressed t-shirt, and of course, a mic and a guitar.

ZZ Top

Live from Costa Mesa, CA 8/1/13

This rock band makes for a great couples costume with your best bud. Pick up a faux beard, some black shades, a dapper brown hat, and for the finishing touch, an eye-catching purple jacket decked out with floral embroidery (think patches and pins).
