With Halloween less than two weeks away, the time to finalize a costume choice is swiftly approaching. Rather than dressing up like a Korean water ghost or another variation of the undead, turn towards some of the most popular K-pop videos for motivation.
K-pop music videos are an excellent source for costume inspiration with looks that range from school friendly to those that will be the hottest in the club. Whether you will be flying solo at an event or partying in a group, there a many fun and easy ways to flaunt your love for K-pop.
G-Dragon brings a new meaning to nerd chic.
If you will not be in a large group, consider dressing up as G-Dragon from his "Michi Go" music video. The look is a twist on preppy, with a Ralph Lauren button down sweater. However, a curly wig and rubber feet create a fanciful take on a very traditional look. If something more unique is what you are seeking, try the anime mask clad doctor and nurse styles that accompany G-Dragon in the video.
