Ziggy Stardust / David Bowie
|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Emily, the 'Ziggy Stardust / David Bowie' costume creator:
I enjoy being people who I admire for Halloween. Last year was Freddie Mercury, year before Michael Jackson. When it came this year, I wanted to be a little more flashy, thats when David Bowie's alter ego came to mind. ZIGGY STARDUST. It doesn't get more flashy and fabulous than that.
There are not really any Ziggy Stardust pre-made costumes, so I had to start from scratch. I purchased a blue unitard and removed a leg and arm. I purchased some fabric and proceeded to hand sew the outfit. The wig was another tough one, I couldn't find any that were the right color AND the the cut. The best I found was a Rod Stewart wig. I used red and orange hair spray to get the color right. Lastly, was the makeup. David shaved his eyebrows for this look, so I used a glue stick, yes you read that right, a glue stick to conceal my brows. I then lightened my skin with foundation and powders. Added red contrasts and used lipstick and eye shadows for the bolt. Additionally, David has one pupil that is dilated from a childhood accident. I used a contact to achieve this affect.
