Top 8 Cheap, Easy Celebrity Halloween Costumes

To channel West's brand of cool, get a pair of stunner shades, skinny jeans, a black shirt/vest combo, a bottle of Hennessy (the stuff that apparently fueled his outburst) and heels -- yes, heels, because in "Run This Town," Jay-Z's new track that features the ever-fashionable hip-hop impresario, West raps, "What's that Ye? Baby, these heels." (Guys, start flexing your ankles and Achilles.)

Swift's look is simple: a sliver dress, a silver trophy, and a look of sheer horror.

Rihanna

Rihanna did herself and her style a favor when she got rid of Chris Brown. The pop star's been sporting fierce black getups with a hard-edged haircut to match. Emulate her love for leather by wrapping black lame or pleather strips around your body and slicking back your hair with extra-strength gel. If that look's a bit too out-there, go the more modest route by picking up a tight, black one shoulder number, a studded belt, and sweeping everything on your head to the side.

Group Costume: Lindsay Lohan

Every year, it gets easier to parody this girl. Looking skinner, sicklier, and blonder than ever, sporting a pout that seems plumper than a pumpkin, Lindsay Lohan seems to be channeling a younger Donatella Versace. Funny, considering Lohan just crash landed into the high fashion industry. Her debut as Emmanuel Ungaro's artistic adviser at Paris Fashion week was disastrous, with critics slamming her line's vision and style, or lack thereof.

But, Lohan, there's a silver lining -- you've given us a great idea for a three person Halloween costume. Outfit one: blue bandeau bra, white jeans scribbled on with blue marker or paint pen. Outfit two: white blazer, white pants, black heart-shaped pasties made from black duct tape. Outfit three, and this person gets the special pleasure of linking arms with the revelers wearing outfits one and two: blond wig, white one shoulder dress, red heels, a look of shame and a cigarette. Lohan calmed frazzled nerves with more than one of these post-show.

Mischa Barton

Mischa Barton revealed her fear of the dentist earlier this fall when she went on "The View" to babble about the wisdom tooth surgery that lead to a breakdown. She also went off on a tangent about her intense loathing of needles.

Make yourself Mischa by smearing on globs of black eye makeup, not washing your hair for a few days to get her signature greasy-looking strands, and stealing your little brother or sister's dental headgear for the night. Bonus points if you find a friend to chase you around with a syringe.

Balloon Boy

No, he's not a celebrity, but 6-year-old Falcon Heene is the pop culture sensation of the moment after last week's alleged hoax that had the world thinking he was trapped in a homemade hot air balloon 10,000 feet in the sky. Capture the zeitgeist and be the infamous balloon by pulling on a silver leotard and leggings, grabbing a roll of Mylar, and having a friend wrap the film around your outstretched arms. Spray your face and hair silver and you're good to go. Or, just get this.
