Slash is probably the easiest one, cause everything you need is a black top hat and sunglasses. And if you don’t have long hair. Just get yourself a wig and you can be the Guns N’ Roses guitarist for one night.

This one is probably the most obvious one, since many fans wear this costume for Halloween every year. So, if you know some that knows how to do make up, ask that person to paint your face as The Demon (Gene Simmons), The Catman (Peter Criss), Spaceman (Ace Frehley), Starchild (Paul Stanley) or any other KISS members from other eras.

An easy out for your Halloween costume is probably wearing only a mask, right? If you want a quick solution that is probably the best way. And some rock and roll mascots look really nice for Haloween. One of the them is the awesome Rattlehead, present in all Megadeth cover albums and of course, in their concerts.

Iron Maiden‘s Eddie is probably the most famous mascot of rock and roll. The creature is in all their album covers and also present in all their concerts. If you are a Maiden, get your mask and play “666 The Number of The Beast” loud.

Quiet Riot

If you love the 80s and hard rock and wanna look kinda crazy to people in general, you can find yourself a straightjacket, a red one, if you can, and find an Iron Mask. There you go, you look like Quiet Riot‘s mascot, all you got to do now is hear “Bang Your Head” with your friends.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
