Top 10 musicians iconic outfits that will inspire your costume
In 2018, Wizkid went past name-dropping Italian luxury fashion house, Dolce and Gabbana in his songs such as Don’t dull to walking the runway at their 2018 show in Milan beside supermodel, Naomi Campbell.
Done with optimum Starboy swagger, Wizkid had walked in a swirly patterned gold-embellished jacket and pants with an embellished full face mask even before they become the world’s most popular fashion accessory no thanks to Covid 19.
While Dolce and Gabanna is not a fashion brand for the lightly-credited, this outfit could be thoughtfully recreated as an all-black, gold-jewelled co-ord set complete with an embellished ski mask for fans of the star who are looking to experience Halloween as Wizkid.
Another cosplay-worthy Wizkid outfit is his much-talked-about beige coloured co-ord set that makes the cover of his world-renowned Made in Lagos album, styled by fashion editor and consultant, Karen Binns.
On the 15th of March 2021, after Burna Boy had thrilled viewers from every corner of the universe to his rousing performance of some records off his soon awarded Twice as Tall moment, for the 2021 Grammys, the African Giant had changed outfits from his custom made Botter Paris cream suit to a white suit from Dior.
Designed with colourful prints on one side of the jacket and paired with a shirt just as entrancingly colourful as the patterns on the jacket and a monochrome logo-splattered mesh glove from Dior on his left hand which was crowned with a huge diamond pinky ring, the freshly awarded star had made a statement in suaveness.
And with such outstandingly minimalist elements, has now given fans costume ideas for a Halloween party.
Another Burna Boy outfit to take inspiration from would be his baby blue perforated denim moment in the visuals of Kilometre which he paired with a blue ski mask and Louis Vuitton low tops for a chillingly cool look.
A regular at making fashion statements, with the help of his sister, Ronami Ogulu, his double-layered Tokyo James damask suit for his appearance at the 2019 Grammys and his outfits for the Brit Awards and BET that same year, bear elements fashionable fans would love to spin into a Halloween costume idea.
One thing about the ever bubbly megastar, he never fails to go big on whatever task he takes up had in a similar fashion, shaken up style-keen fans with his full Bottega moment.
Where he donned a padded Bottega vest, layered over a plain white tee with a pair of dark shorts and loafers and quilted tote bag from the luxury brand, styled by Eferoghene Asagba, popularly known as Twizei.
Padded accessories being the rave of the moment, lovers of the 30BG captain may decide to embody the singer by pulling inspiration from his triple Bottega moment or run with his Peaky Blinders-inspired look for his movie-like Jowo music video.
There’s also his mastery of martial arts moment where he reasserted himself as the blueprint in Mayorkun-assisted The Best.
Irrevocably known as the African Bad Gyal, Tiwa Savage always shows her fashion mettle on any and every occasion and the rollout for her Celia album was no different with her fully-Nigerian-styled Koroba music video moment, put together by Daniel Obasi, taking the cake.
Rocking Nigerian A-List brands from Banke Kuku to Deola Sagoe and more, nothing screamed Halloween-worthy cosplay more than her all red moment in Tokyo James which included a red wide-brimmed hat, a Victorian-style dress, and a red corset as well.
Other iconic Tiwa Savage style moments ringing bells of cosplay include her village schoolgirl look for 49-99 and her conversation-starting, skin-coloured sheer catsuit in her provocative Wanted video.
Never one to let up on her art-powered movement of black excellence, the millennial Mama Africa makes sure to always serve with her African indigenous costumes that are the stuff of cosplay mood boards.
Other Yemi Alade cover art looks to pin up on a Halloween-themed mood board ranging from her costume on Mama Afrique to Black Magic and her more recent Empress.
There’s also that one time she was a lime-green fur, blond-haired, lime-green leather dress garbed enchantress that is every bit as inspirational as her Mama Africa moments.
Baby-faced and butter-voiced, yet never hesitant or relenting in speaking up for the rights of women, Simi put this to the song on her latest single, Woman and with help from Temitope Udual Betiku of Gang Styling, gave us images for the lookbooks.
First, there was her bright green tower of tulle that brought to mind images of a black fairy godmother but her all-black moment in the cut after was even so much the more Halloween cosplay gold.
With a fierce ponytail and black lippie, Simi assumed the role of a confidently dominant woman in her black bodycon top with red ruffles and slitted leather skirt, paired off with a black whip.
Establishing himself as the master of seamless and all-round evolution, Adekunle Gold had refined his sound and image on his most recent album, Afropop Vol. 1, stealing the scene with his spotless and iridescent look in a red co-ord and heavily beaded braids that had featured a mirror to reflect his immaculate style.
Many fans of AG Daddy as he’s now come to be known, will also not forget in a hurry and may choose to find Halloween costume inspiration from his fourfold serve at his 2017 concert, One Night with Adekunle Gold, with his yellow fringe jacket outfit as well as his gold-embellished suit, making rounds on social media.
Very much the family man, Adekunle Gold empowered with a cameo from his wife in Sinner had also provided outfit ideas for couples looking to experience Halloween as famous personalities.
An undisputably powerful record from the leading face of Afrodancehall, Patoranking who never fails to cross his Ts and dot his Is where style is concerned, showed up as a swanky styled general for the video of Celebrate Me.
Achieved with a red beret and a large multicoloured cardigan layered over a white t-shirt and touched up with diamond necklaces.
Everyone loves a good dancehall-inspired look so chopping Patoranking’s outfit up for Halloween would definitely earn any partygoer a thumbs up.
There are also moments of Patoranking channelling African royalty with sparkling gold agbada get up in the visuals for Mon Bebe and then his suit and wrapper-topped look for the visualizer of the acoustics version of I’m In Love.
Beanie atop the head, smoking pipe in mouth, to style a simple sweatshirt, Olamide had understatedly manifested his godfather status on the cover art of his latest album, Uy Scuti, giving every inch of Halloween cosplay inspiration fans of the hip-hop veteran would need.
Olamide’s expertly layered moment in a logo-embossed padded yellow jacket from Dolce and Gabbana, paired with a hoodie and fishnet gloves was also a moment lover of streetwear may choose to cosplay the star as.
Smooth, sultry and fresh, Tems has stolen several hearts with her vocals and also her Dunsin Wright-styled looks.
Playing the role of the Rebel Gang leader to a tee, Tems had unknowingly provided a look for the Halloween mood boards with her warrior princess moment in The Key with her scarf top and leather pants look that was finished off with a sword slung fiercely behind her.
Another Rebel Gang leader look was her outfit at the closing scenes of her Try Me video where she had on a cropped turtle neck racer top, flared pants and a lit torch hoisted above her head.
A poster girl for new school elegance, Tems’ co-ord pants set styled with a bejewelled bra to set off her heavily beaded braids is another look Halloween lovers could pull for a luxe costume.
