Should this be more embarrassing for me than it is?
I've dressed up like Britney Spears for Halloween more times than I can remember, ranging in age from like 11 to 24.
I don't have a carefully calculated Britney shrine set up in my room with pictures that I meticulously rearrange in chronological order and retreat to to talk about my troubles or anything (unless you count the year her first album came out back in '99—that doesn't' count, right?)
But she just has so many crazy/awesome looks to recreate! Plus, if you dress up in one of her music video looks, you get to walk around like a damn boss all night because you've got your own theme song (everyone WILL break into song when they see you), and who doesn't love a good Britney jam? Terrorists, probably.
"Hit Me Baby One More Time" was one of my first (and one of my most used) CDs ever. And that was back before we had Google for looking up lyrics, so if I wanted to sing it fearlessly and passionately and come up with accurate choreography (obviously), I had to pause it, rewind it, and replay it and legitimately WRITE DOWN the lyrics to memorize it. #RESPECT
I do think it's safe to say Brit is past her prime, but "I must confess, I still believe. STILL BELIEVE!" (Please tell me you just sang-read that in your head—ahh, the world is just as it should be.)
First look: "Toxic" video Britney #1
And then I did something ever-so-slightly less every-day-makeup-friendly. Same video; different Britney.
Second look: "Toxic" video Britney #2
And here's a side-by-side for you:
Anyway, if nothing else, Britney Spears has given the world a lot of great Halloween costume possibilities. Don't be surprised if a few more of these pop princess looks POP up. :)
