Oh what a night! My Halloween 2015 was great in part to my kickass costume. I have wanted to dress up as Janet Jackson from her Pleasure Principle video for the past few years, and for some reason or another, I kept pushing it off to the next year in favor of another costume idea. But not this year. This year I was determined to transform myself into Ms. Janet Jackson (circa Control album days), and I did. Check out how I became Ms. Jackson (if ya nasty).
Black t-shirt (I used a white paint pen to write the same symbols from Janet's shirt in the video).
Black wavy wig with bangs (to get the slick haired Janet look).
White/Maroon Adidas wristband.
Silver hoop earrings (I put a key in the left one to perfectly copy Janet's signature key earring that she wore everywhere in her Control days).
Black knee pads (Ms. Jackson was working it in the video and needed those babies to protect her knees as she danced her way through an abandoned warehouse).
Black high-waisted jeans.
Black Adidas Superstar sneakers (I made the ultimate commitment and bought these sneakers to complete my costume).
The Completed Look: Toya T as Ms. Janet Jackson from the Pleasure Principle Video
Did I nail it?
to watch the video that inspired my costume. Enjoy.
