This costume can be as simple or as intricate as you want it. You can stick to the detail of her costume right down to the gold hoops and red-lined leather jacket.

Costume components:

  • Black shirt – For the black 0ff-the-shoulder shirt, you can simply use a black t-shirt like the girl on the left. You can even use a tank top, tube-top… it doesn’t really matter as long as it’s black and tight.
  • Black leather pants – You can use black leggings or black skinny jeans instead of black leather pants if you don’t have any.
  • Heels – If you don’t have red heels, a pair of black heels will do. You can also have some fun and wear red converse instead.
  • Black leather jacket – If you don’t have a black leather jacket and don’t want to get one, don’t worry about it, it’s not essential to the costume.
  • Black belt – Any black belt out of your closet will work just fine!
