Dress up as Slash (Guitarist)

Slash is arguably the most famous rock guitarist. Deck yourself in a top hat, and black ensemble. Kick-ass guitar optional.

Costume for Slash of Guns n Roses

Slash Hat with Wig
The most distinct aspect of a Slash costume is his long curly hair and his top hat. This hat even has those metal details, although the hat doesn’t seem as heavy duty. It should do the trick though and initial reviews have been good.
Sorta off topic: I think the 4 Non Blondes singer must have taken her top hat fashion idea from Slash, no?

Aviator Sunglasses
Slash wears a pair of aviator sunglasses. Was there ever a photo of him sans his eyewear? This pair is very affordable and has gotten the most average good reviews to date

Nose Ring Clip
Nothing spells cool rocker more than a nose ring.

Skull / Rose Tattoos
Slash sports the Guns n Roses tattoo on his left bicep. The official Guns n Roses logo isn’t available but this one is a good resemblance as it features some of the elements of the tattoos

Black Tee
An ordinary tight black top is all you need

Skull and Crossbones Necklace
The dude loves his skulls! He sports a skull necklace like this one

Steel Bracelet for Men
Slash wears a couple of bracelets. You can definitely go crazy and choose the ones that suit your style (guys, it’s the perfect excuse to accessorize!) but this plain one is a keeper. It looks like the one he wore on his right wrist AND it’s simple enough to wear on ordinary days

Skull Jean Chain
Jean chains – the quintessential retro accessory!

Low Top Black Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers
Keeping it casual and comfortable, Slash wears a pair of sneakers in the photo above

Dress up as Axl Rose

Dress up as the 80s lead singer with his trademark bandana.

Axl Rose Costume - Guns n Roses

Long Auburn Hair and Red Bandana
Like Slash, Axl’s most distinct costume piece is his coif, which usually has a bandana tied around it. The red one is the one that stands out in my memory the most. This set already includes the wig and the bandana and was given good reviews so far

Black Skull Vest
Axl wears a black vest. This piece has a skull on the back – a great detail and nod to the Guns n Roses band logo

Guns n Roses Shirt
The easiest thing to do to make sure everyone knows you’re dressed up as the famous singer is to wear a tee of your band! This Guns n Roses shirt has a cool vintage, distressed look to it

Mickey Mouse Sleeveless Shirt
In some photos, he is seen sporting a Mickey Mouse sleeveless shirt – which is a pretty novel choice for a rock star. Axl’s shirt is white but it should carry the look across

Cross Necklace
Axl wears a cross pendant necklace in many of his photos.

Stars and Stripes Shorts
Show off your patriotism! In one of the concerts, Axl was wearing a pair of patriotic shorts (boxer shorts at that) and nothing but tattoos for a top.

Heart / Wings Tattoo Set
Axl has a lot of tattoos going on. On his left bicep, he has a tattoo of a heart with wings. You can use this set to make your own

Black Boots
To cap off the outfit, he wears a pair of black combat boots with white socks inside. Probably to keep him warm since he’s just wearing a pair of shorts

Black Leather bracelet
Axl wears a whole lot of arm candy. Go ahead and mix and match. This simple black leather bracelet is a keeper even for everyday wear

Plaid Shirt to be wrapped on your waist
Here’s another idea: wrap your waist with a plaid shirt like Axl sometimes does. Viva retro fashion!
