80s Party Costume Idea: Robert Smith, The Cure

Robert Smith of the Cure costume ideaThis is a great male costume idea. I mean, nothing’s cooler than The Cure, right? This is a particularly good costume if you are the macho type – throw them off guard, show them all your sensitive, inner-poet side. This 80s party costume is . . . Just Like Heaven.

What You Need for This Costume

The other beauty part to this costume is that it is relatively easy to pull together.

  • Hair – you got to get the hair right – we suggest this wig (and the cool thing about this wig is that is doubles as an Edward Scissorhands wig so you can milk two costumes out of this puppy)
  • Black eye makeup – liner around the eyes and black eye shadow on the lids
  • Lipstick – red, red, red
  • Clothes – black, of course – best choices are a black button down or black t-shirt
  • Look – you’ll want to give some practice to the chin down, sultry and tortured stance that our Mr. Smith has perfected.

Why can’t we be you, Robert Smith?
