This homemade costume for women entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Robyn, the 'Rhythm Nation Janet Jackson' costume creator:

Each year, I try to come up with an idea that I feel I can best pull off. Three years ago I pulled off what I'm told was a "scarily convincing" Purple Rain Prince. Lat year, I transformed myself into a robot--more specifically, Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter, complete with a hand built scrolling helmet. And this year, with her renewed relevancy, I decided on Rhythm Nation Janet Jackson... I've been told I 'kind of favor her'--so I thought I would give it a shot and it really paid off!
