Rock Star Costume Ideas: Billy Corgan

The world is a vampire?  Not this Halloween!

Continuing our special “Rock Star Costume Ideas” series, we have one Billy Corgan.  In his entire career, there was perhaps no look more iconic than the one he sported in the video for “Bullet with Butterfly Wings,” and it’s a fairly simple costume to recreate.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • This “Zero” t-shirt.
  • A bald cap kit. (Yes, Billy still had hair in the “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” video, but he shaved his head shortly thereafter.)
  • Silver pants. (Like these ones we found on Amazon.)
  • Black boots
