Pop stars and outrageous outfits go hand in hand, which makes it easy as candy corn to dress up as one for Halloween. Having trouble deciding which artist to choose from?

What you’ll need:

  • For starters you’ll need some serious Lana hair. If you’re stumped try a tutorial like this one.
  • If you’re recreating LDR’s album cover, you’ll need a plain white semi-sheer blouse (like this one from She Inside) buttoned up to the top and a pair of gold doorknocker earrings like these for $49. The pair it with some “Blue Jeans” or denim shorts. Lana likes to mix up dressy with casual.
  • If you’re going for more of a Lana Live look, any variation on a white dress will do. We especially like this one from Dorothy Perkins.
  • For your makeup, unless you’re naturally as blessed as Lizzie Grant over exaggerate your lipstick. Make sure to do some cat eyeliner and false lashes too.

There you have it! You’re officially ready to play your Halloween games as Lana Del Rey. Remember, regardless of how much fun you’re having, try to keep a mysterious and solemn face (pouting helps too!). And if all else fails, just keep spinning:
