Choosing a Halloween costume is like choosing a new identity! For one spooky night you get to dress up and be whoever you want. And what’s more fun than pretending to be a rockstar musician? Beyoncé, Britney Spears, or Justin Bieber are all great ideas. But going back in time can be really exciting too — especially when it comes to paying homage to an iconic singer.

Today we want to share 10 iconic musicians you should dress as for Halloween this year!
1. Cher and Sonny Bono
There are truly so many Cher costumes to choose from, but going way back to her days with Sonny Bono is a great way to get a friend (or more than friend) involved in your look.
2. Freddy Mercury
The Queen frontman was known for his tight tank tops and unstoppable stage presence. Don’t forget the fake mustache and black boots.
Like with Cher, the Madonna costume inspirations are endless. There’s just something about ’80s Madonna that will always be iconic. So, think lace, fishnet gloves and tops, and religious jewelry — all played a big part in Madonna’s 80s looks
4. Run DMC
Grab your friends and your Adidas sneakers for this fresh group costume. Don’t forget the rope chains and Kangol hats!
5. Jimi Hendrix
Flared trousers with multiple decorative belts, an open poet shirt, and a patterned silk scarf ! Bonus points for accessorizing with a guitar.
6. David Bowie
Nothing spells creative brilliance like David Bowie’s Space Oddity look. There are plenty of options online, but the definite must-have is the eccentric makeup.
7. Amy Winehouse
A beehive wig, bold eyeliner, and temporary tattoos are all you need to dress as the late, great Amy Winehouse.
8. Dolly Parton
When it comes to dressing like Dolly, bigger is better: the hair, the sleeves, and yes, the bosom.
9. Johnny Cash and June Carter
Copy the country couple’s look with a black suit and wig for Johnny and a floaty ’70s-style dress for June.
Leather and A LOT of makeup should do it! And if you truly want to go all out, metal studs, rhinestones, and sequins should do it!
