DIY Halloween Costumes: How To Go As Your Favorite Celeb

Each year, picking a Halloween costume can seem tricky, but with the help of Seventeen's fashion editors, this year's decision will be a total treat!

Perez HiltonPerez Hilton
If you're the type who wants to stand out, then try dressing up as Perez Hilton, the self-professed Queen of All Media and Gossip Gangster. Buy his "Gossip Gangster" tee, add some Manic Panic "Dyehard" temporary bright hair streaks, and top it all off with a printed pastel hoodie. Another idea is to have one of your guy friends go as Perez and all the girls can go as different celebs like Paris, Britney, and Amy Winehouse so you have a walking crew of paparazzi-loving scene stealers.


Spencer and Heidi Speidi
Have fun dressing up as the corniest duo on TV: Heidi and Spencer from The Hills. First, you'll need matching platinum blonde wigs. Try the blown-out disco style for Heidi and this funny curly one for Spence. Heidi needs a fabulous Hermes Birkin-inspired bag, and Shop Suey Boutique has TONS of these great designer knockoffs. For Spencer, try a button-down oxford worn open and casual. To top off the Speidi look, buy matching "I'm with Stupid" tees from Café Press. Don't forget to fake-fight, kiss, and make up all night!


Mariah Carey and Nick CannonMariah Carey and Nick CannonMariah and Nick Cannon
If you decide to go as Mariah and Nick Cannon this Halloween, lets face it: It's ALL about Mariah. After all, she doesn't even need a last name. I would try gojane.com as your one-stop shop for all your Mariah needs. Look for a tight-fitting minidress, superhigh platform heels, large hoop earrings, and a pair of wraparound shield sunglasses, of course! Side note: Mariah would never, BUT I urge you to wear tights with this outfit as it's quite ... skimpy. Finally, don't forget to add Mariah's signature butterfly, which can be done in a fake butterfly tattoo or this knockoff diamond Mariah butterfly ring. Sorry, Nick, but it doesn't really matter what you wear because no one's looking at you. May I suggest a backwards cap and a cardigan or blazer? Although that's really for later on in the evening when Mariah gets chilly.
