The singer and entertainer known most common as Prince, but also goes by the Artist Formerly Known as Prince and also as an unpronounceable symbol, has a defining look that cannot be better expressed than this purple velvet costume. Prince’s old 80s look is a cool throwback idea for fans of the American singer who might be going to an 80s theme Halloween costume party or birthday bash. This homemade costume has all the right elements that make it a great Prince costume including the heavy purple theme. Prince loved the color so much he had a song titled Purple Rain. The velvet suit is vintage Prince, but must be combined with a ruffled shirt. As far as the wig goes, the big 80s styled was the Jheri curl which you can see is an integral part of this costume. The final touch is Prince’s finely groomed facial hair in a thin mustache. Don’t forget to have fun with the eye shadow, for one night of the year you can actually justify this as a man!
