Who didn’t grow up wanting to be The Huxtables one day? Now’s your chance. For Claire’s classic look, go for a fabulous (and bright) 80s getup, hair, and earrings. To pass for Cliff, he’ll need to hold off on the haircut, a really bad sweater, and a stethoscope.
Pay tribute to President Barack Obama and his First Lady Michelle Obama by dressing up as the power pair. President Obama wigs are easy to find online or at a costume store. To pull off a good Michelle, find a bob wig to match her iconic ’do and wear a bright colored dress and pretty pearls.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
There’s so many ways to dress like hip-hop “it” couple Jay and Bey. Your Beyonce costume must-haves list should include a long, curly, blonde wig, amazing heels, and a mini baby bump. (Don’t forget to use bronzer to add a pregnancy glow!) For a proper Jay-Z impression, have him go for classic Jigga-man style — a t-shirt, baggy jeans, and a Yankee fitted!
Yvette and Jody
Who can forget the love-hate-relationship between “Baby Boy” characters Yvette and Jody (played by Tyrese and Taraji P. Henson)? Recreate Jody’s look for him with a plaid shirt, white tank, and saggy jeans. All you need to bring Yvette back to life is a matching bob, purple t-shirt, and a big attitude.
Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
Marvin and Tammi made beautiful music together, and in doing so, earned a spot on our favorite couples list. Grab a beautiful straight wig with a bang to pull of Tammi’s signature ’do and be sure Marvin wears a smooth white suit. (Note: Door-to-door singing is optional, but recommended!)
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Head to the Halloween party dressed as Nick and Mariah and you’re sure to raise eyebrows. (In a good way!) To channel Mariah, wear a sexy body con dress, super high-heels, and bring your own wine glass. Don’t forget to release your inner diva — it’s a Mariah must! If he’s going to play Nick, he’ll need a sharp tuxedo, some wacky couture socks, and to be all-over his “Mariah.”
Ike and Tina Turner
Though their relationship famously ended in turmoil and divorce, there’s no denying that these two made great music together. To look like legendary diva Tina, rock a shimmery frock or flapper dress paired with a really (really!) big wig. To imitate Ike, all he’ll need is a patterned suit, a conk, and a giant guitar.
