Halloween Countdown – Costume Inspiration #3

In a week when he might be honoured this year’s Mercury Music Prize, David Bowie could prove to be a very on-trend costume choice this Halloween. But then again, hasn’t the Thin White Duke’s flamboyant approach to glam-rock always welcomed copycats inspired by his look?

Bless Lady Gaga, but she’ll do well to create even half of the iconic looks emblazoned in our minds by Bowie. Ziggy Stardust and his lightning-bolt makeup are always ripe for a redo, so why not give the famous alien alter-ego a zombie twist for a spooky Halloween theme? Alternatively, you could go full-on Goblin King and smuggle a budgie or five in your tights as ‘Labyrinth’s iconic villain. The power of the babe, indeed…
