Amy Winehouse is one of the best singers of all time, so this year after her untimely death I chose to be her for Halloween. For years people have told me that I look like her, so I wanted to represent her true spirit... and I hope I did not disappoint.
I found a jet black wig that exactly matched her hair style with her very cool big bouffant. I did my makeup spot on with her signature thick black winged eyeliner and red luscious lips. My friend (who is an amazing artist) painted Amy's exact tattoos on my arms... her pinup doll woman, horseshoe, girl, etc.
I wore a white tank-top, blue jeans, and a black push-up bra to be the casual Amy. And the best part was that I carried around a bottle of Jack Daniels that was only a quarter full and I constantly took a swig of it. When I went out Halloween weekend people seemed to be so amazed at how much I looked like her that everyone asked me for a picture.
The very talented and beautiful Amy Winehouse will always be missed... I'm glad that I resemble her and hope to somehow continue her legacy.
I wore this Homemade Amy Winehouse Costume for Rock Star day for homecoming week. I'm a high school teacher and one of my students asked if I'd be his escort, so I made it a point to dress up with him for the whole week. We had a "candyland" theme and everyday was a different candy, Rock Star day was for Rock Candy! It was a HIT!
My costume made it into the yearbook! I bought the wig at Walmart ($7-10); it was your standard long straight black wig but I back-combed the crown to get the height and those are my bangs! Everything else was actually in my closet!! A red belt, skinny jeans, plaid heels, black army-style blouse, exaggerated make-up, of course a blacked-out tooth and I had my brother draw on her tattoos! The only thing left was the drugs! Totally not allowed on campus, but everything else was pretty spot-on! My students begged me to wipe the blackened tooth off but I refused! It was a great day!
Comments for Coolest Homemade Amy Winehouse Costume
In 2007 when Amy Winehouse's Back to Black album was released, I was in love with her look and sound! I found some hair extentions I dyed black, and paired them with a black beehive wig. I had two different artist friends draw on the same tattoos that Amy Winehouse had onto my body with sharpie markers. I wore a white wifebeater tank top with an exposed red bra, and skinny jeans. I topped off the look with black cat eye makeup, ballet flats, and a cigarette.
