Homemade David Bowie Costume Inspired by Ziggy Stardust and Halloween Jack
I am wearing the costume. My costume is loosely based on David Bowie’s early personas, Ziggy Stardust and Halloween Jack (Rebel Rebel/Diamond Dogs era). I bought a shiny red orange David Bowie looking wig and the authentic vintage 70’s button up shirt from eBay I bought the polka dot scarf for only $2 at Goodwill. I already had the red pants and black platform boots (hard to tell in the pictures). The only thing I bought at the Halloween store was the pirate eye patch and earring.
I bought the red guitar off of eBay but you probably could get it from a Halloween store too. Gathering the items were fun, although took a bit more effort since I was trying to look as accurate as possible. In the end the makeup took the most time as I had to learn how to cover and hide my eyebrows as I sure didn’t want to shave them off!
It was a very fun costume and ended up being a hit at where I partied! I went to a David Bowie tribute gig on Halloween wearing this and got so many compliments…even got to get up on stage with the band singing Rebel Rebel!
