Our favorite rock stars dress so fabulously full-time that they probably don't even know how to dress for Halloween anymore. While the regular folk of America can pick up a Lady Gaga getup at a costume shop or browse the thrift store and just throw something together, our celebrity peers spend so much time thinking of their daily costumes that they have no time to pick a cool one for Halloween.
Don't sweat it, pop stars! We got you! Through our powers of imagination and Photoshop 1996 certification, we have come up with some very adequate costumes for rock 'n' roll trick-or-treating.
Here are ten costumes digitally placed on our favorite rock stars -- some are even dressed as other rock stars!
10. Alice Cooper as Fonzie
Alice Cooper, by design, is the ultimate Fonz! Plus, underneath all that drippy makeup, he has a Henry Winkler face.
9. Katy Perry as Zooey Deschanel in Elf
Zooey looks like Katy! Katy looks like Zooey! Costume solved!
8. Backstreet Boys as Kiss
They'll get recognized a lot more if they go around dressed as Kiss than if they go around as themselves. No one will even notice that Brain Littrell is totally missing!
7. Nobunny as Michael Jackson
If you've never seen Nobunny perform, then you've never seen him crotch-grab just like the King of Pop.
6. GWAR's Flattus Maximus as Voldemort
He who cannot stop farting while shredding as He Who Cannot Be Named.
5. Ben Folds as Garth from Wayne's World
Party on, Ben!
4. Lady Gaga as a ghost
Lady Gaga's going to show up to Halloween dressed in her normal clothes; luckily, the host of the party will be like, "I have these sheets -- can we cut out some eye holes?"
3. Prince as the Joker
When Prince wrote "Batdance" he wrote (most likely) the best song of all time. That psychotic dance jam is loaded with samples of Jack Nicholson as the Joker, and Prince is always loaded with Purple. Perfect fit.
2. Andrew W.K. as Fred Flintstone
No one parties harder than Andrew W.K., and only one man has ever rocked harder -- that's right, Slate Quarry's rock smasher of the year since 36,000 B.C., Fred Flintsone.
