David Bowie: 1974
You could choose to dress as David Bowie ten Halloweens in a row and never have to repeat a look. That's the beauty of his visual legacy: much like Madonna and Lady Gaga after him, it's perpetually evolving. Of course, for dress-up purposes, most will be drawn to recreating his mid-70s glam looks. This moment in 1974 where he chose to wear an eyepatch to an interview at the Amstel Hotel seems especially ripe for Halloween resurrection. It's a perfect seasonal choice for a bit of meta mischieft: it's a costume of Bowie...in a costume.
