I've got a costume party to attend in less than 2 days. I was initially thinking of wearing my Army costume but I can't seem to find it.

So I decided to dress up as a rockstar. Any ideas on what I should be wearing?

I've got the rocker and spiky bracelet, and an inflatable guitar(that's kinda lame).

But I have no idea where to start and time's running out....


Thanks in advance!

Follow Keith's lead. He's the prototype -- the standard against which you will be measured:







P.S. The inflatable guitar won't be lame if you get the rest of it right. Nobody expects you to bring a real Telecaster.

Shoot. I forgot to mention. It's still the end of winter here, so sleeveless is definitely not an option! But it's not that cold either, so the outfit doesn't have to be that warm.



Thanks for your response though.


Anymore suggestions? SORRY BUT THIS IS REALLY URGENT!

He's at the right place. Get a really nice DB suit and go as Charlie Watts. Inflatable guitar optional. The guy exudes class.

Grow your hair out.



How can you not find an army costume tho. Get some acu from a surplus store. Multicam if you want to look hi speed, but that probably doesn't hit surplus stores.

You are over thinking. Cut the arms off a t-shirt, put on some old jeans and tie a neck-tie around your forehead, let if drape off to the side of your face.

Keith Richards is hands down, the most disgusting, decrepid looking character on a stage.
You can do way better than that.
Imagine yourself as a rockstar, on a stage sweating to death from the lights and your playing.
That's why a lot of them wore some form of sweatband and silk shirts.
It depends on what type of rockstar look you want.
I would prefer the more flamboyant costumey look.
Study the looks of Jethro Tull, The Who, Queen, Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Yes, etc etc.
Get to the nearest thrift store(s).
Go to the womens or mens section and find:
-either a plain silk blouse or a crazy patterned one
-crazy vest
-skin-tight pants that dont crush your balls or better yet, womens spandex pants
-any belt with a lot of metal rhinestones on it.
-If they have a wig with long hair or big hair, buy it.
-a headband or bandana too.
-wear any shoes you want.
-wear some cheap eye-liner or eye-lash thickener.
-fake jewelry chains are an option

Great info here. Thanks!!
Jimi Hendrix's outfit is definitely legendary, but it's a little too much to spend.

I think I will go with Billie Joe Armstrong's outfit.
I've got a pair of skinny black jeans, so all I have to do is get a tight black shirt with a red tie. My hair is pretty long so I'll some time with that, my sis will do the eye-liner for me


Does anyone think that's a good outfit?
