Lots of celebrities will be hot Halloween costumes this year — the late Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett probably will be everywhere — but why not dress as Miley Cyrus, who will play Rupp Arena on Sunday?
Cut out our mask of Miley and just add the clothes. We've included tips for making your mask and suggestions for getting the Miley look.
Tips for Making your mask
We tested the masks and have a few tips for creating a sturdy one.
■ Use glue — or rubber cement, if you're a neatnik — to attach this page to a heavy-stock paper product such as a manila file folder, a piece of lightweight cardboard, the front or back of a calendar, a piece of poster board, the front of a cereal box, etc.
■ Cut as close to the image of the mask as possible.
■ Glue a paint-mixing stick or a ruler to the back of the mask's chin.
■ After you've attached the cardboard, use scissors or a utility knife to cut out the eyes.
How to become Miley
Now that you have your Miley mask, you'll need a few accessories to make your costume more realistic. Here are some suggestions:
The clothes: Miley favors typical teen clothes: skinny jeans, '80s-inspired tops and boots worn outside her jeans.
To Twitter or not to Twitter: Miley recently deleted her Twitter account because her boyfriend, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, disapproves. But her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, thinks she made a mistake. To pull this off, tweet on your PDA, but look conflicted about it.
An underwear-model ex-boyfriend: Have a hot, athletic male friend stand near you in his underwear so he looks like Miley's ex, Justin Gaston.
A Wal-Mart bag: The retailer is sponsoring Miley's tour, and she'll have a clothing line there.
A questionable photo with your father: Relive the scandal that erupted after Miley and Billy Ray sat for photographer Annie Leibovitz in a vaguely sensual pose for Vanity Fair. If you want to see the photo, it is in the June 2008 issue. If you want to dress like Miley did in another shot, you just need wet hair, red lips and a white sheet draped over your body.
Nose ring: She got it in June, showed it off on Twitter and fans were atwitter.
Oversize aviator sunglasses: Like all pretty young things in Hollywood, she apparently loves them.
Hannah Montana no more? Although she is measured about her feelings on continuing to play Hannah Montana, Miley telegraphs that she's totally over the character. Carry a photo of Hannah that you periodically rip to shreds.
