Is there a crazier, freakier rock star to be for Halloween this year than Ozzy Osbourne? If you’re fresh out of good Halloween costume ideas, you’re in luck – here’s all you’ll need to put together the perfect Ozzy costume.
1. Long, Dark Hair
If you have long, dark hair already, just part it in the middle and you’re done. If not, you’ll need a wig. And as un-Ozzy as it may seem, a hippie wig (like this one) is the perfect look for your costume.
2. Colored sunglasses
Your costume won’t be complete without Ozzy’s signature colored sunglasses. Purple and pink are the two most common colors, as is the circular shape of the lenses. These would work perfectly.
3. Black Clothing
It really doesn’t matter what type of clothing you wear – it could be formal or casual – as long as the color scheme is black, black and black. And throw in a touch of black for a little extra flair.
4. Cross Medallion
He always has one of these friggin’ things hanging around his neck, so it’s required for you to wear one (preferably one you can chomp on) for your costume. You won’t be Ozzy without it.
Ozzy also always has plenty of jewelry around his fingers, so make sure your hands are nice and decorated with like, skulls and crosses and stuff.
6. Tattoo Sleeves
If your arms are going to be exposed, you need to have them COVERED in tattoos. But luckily, you don’t need to pay a visit to the tattoo parlor – there are nylon tattoo sleeves that you can wear.
7. “OZZY” Tattooed On Fingers
If you really want to go all out, you can take a sharpie and write “OZZY” across your fingers, which he has for whenever he forgets who he is.
8. Black Painted Fingernails
Ozzy’s fingernails might actually just be naturally black…But you likely need to go out and get some black nail polish.
9. A Bat…Preferably a Fake One
Ozzy is famous for once biting the head off a real bat, so if you need a prop this is the way to go. You can even simulate biting it if you get a rubber bat, then cut its head off and re-attach it with velcro.
10. Sharon Osbourne
In case you’re going with your wife or girlfriend as a couples costume, she just needs dyed red hair and some really expensive-looking clothes to instantly become Sharon.
