Erika Brooks Adickman | October 20, 2011 10:30 am

Pop stars and outrageous outfits go hand in hand, which makes it oh-so easy to dress up as one for Halloween. Having trouble deciding which artist to choose from? We’re back again to help you handpick the most iconic ensembles from 2011 and give you some tips on how to recreate them. As always, save us a fun-size candy bar from your trick-or-treat bag as thanks. (Just no Mr. Goodbars, please!)

Today, we’ll walk you through three different ways to be best thing at your ghoulish soiree— scroll through our Beyonce Costume Guide below, and you’ll be sure to run your Halloween party-ay-ay-ay.

“Pregnant VMA” Beyonce:


What you’ll need:

  • Blonde Farrah Fawcett wig
  • A pair of large tuxedo pants (black maternity pants will also work)
  • A baby bump shaped pillow — virtually any throw pillow will do
  • A sequined jacket — hit up your nearby second hand clothing stores for this one
  • With a huge glowing smile, gratuitously rub your belly while pretending you’re making eye contact with Jay-Z from across the room.

“Countdown” Beyonce:

What you’ll need:

  • A solid bright colored turtleneck bodysuit like this one from and a pair of shiny nude tights
  • Bright eyeliner and shadow to match your top
  • A giant black and white sunhat
  • Walk around all night channeling both Audrey hepburn in Funny Face while making some funny faces of your own

“Run The World” Beyonce:

What you’ll need:

  • A fierce and extravagant white gown. (Don’t feel you have to shell out big bucks if you don’t already have one. You can find an eye-popping  dress at Lohemanns’s, Marshalls or Goodwill.)
  • Tons of hairspray to tease your hair up like Bey
  • Two stuffed animals that can at least pass for growling hyenas
  • Chains from the hardware store or chain dog leashes
  • Be sure strut around your Halloween party telling people they better “cut your check” and remind them that your “persuasion can build a nation”

Ta da! You’re Beyonce! Now, go make your grand entrance and party till the end of time or you know, until November 1.
