Rihanna Costume

The key to rocking Rihanna‘s urban-glam concert look for Halloween? Sex up a gold dress with iron-on numbers, slip on combat boots and slap on a gold cuff just below a bicep. If a real pixie cut feels like too much of a super-fan commitment, tuck that hair into your studded cap instead.
