Movie star and singer Cher first shot to fame in the 1960s as half of Sonny and Cher. Over the years, she has transformed her look a number of times and has worn many outfits -- from the hippie style of her early career to the raunchy outfit she wore in the 1989 "Turn Back Time" music video, according to her official website. The latter is a well-known look of hers that is an easy costume to put together yourself at home -- although you may want to cover a little more flesh than Cher's version.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Black sleeveless bodysuit
  • Silver sequins
  • Glue
  • Black pantyhose

  1. 1

    Glue sequins onto the black bodysuit in a scattered, random fashion. Don't completely cover the bodysuit; spread the sequins about 2 inches apart, so the suit still looks black, but has a sparkling effect.

  2. 2

    Pull on your pantyhose; wear your bodysuit over the top.

  3. 3

    Put on your black knee-high boots and leather jacket.

  4. 4

    Pull on your curly black wig and tuck all your hair underneath.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear fishnet stockings and suspenders instead of pantyhose if you feel brave.
  • Use the biggest, curliest wig you can find.
  • If you have long, black hair, curl it with heated curling irons instead of wearing a wig.
  • High-heeled leather boots most closely resemble Cher's.
