The standard rock star hats found at Halloween stores tend to be modeled almost exactly after Slash’s signature hat. Pair that, or just a regular old top hat, with a long, black, curly wig. There’s even a Slash wig and hat combothat would work perfectly.

2. Leather and Denim

Any kind of leather/denim combination works fine for Slash, as long as you have the tough biker look going. Toss in a silver chain or two.

3. Sunglasses…

Slash’s eyes are seldom seen in public. He almost always has big, dark sunglasses covering them, and so should you at your Halloween party.

4. …And Cigarette

A cigarette is optional for just about any rock star costume. For Slash, however, it’s mandatory at all times.

5. Badass Boots

It can be like those boots above, or combat boots, or anything of that nature as long as it answers “yes” to the question, “Would Slash wear these?”

6. Guitar

You obviously don’t need to walk around with a real guitar all day. A fake inflatable guitar would work fine, but if you’re going for accuracy and totally committing, you’ll need a Gibson Les Paul (try it in sunburst).
