If there was one video that truly took the Internet by storm this year, it was Sia's "Chandelier." The video, which featured Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler, was a pop culture phenomenon with parody upon parody coming as a result of its release. Well, this Sia "Chandelier" Halloween Costume is sure to be a hit at any party you attend during the most fun holiday of the fall season.
The video for "Chandelier" debuted in May of last year, but that hasn't prevented the short flick from making a dramatic impact on the collective masses. Just a few weeks after the video premiered, Ellen Degeneres invited both Sia and dancer Maddie Ziegler to The Ellen Show to perform the song together. The result was a haunting performance unlike anything most had ever seen on a daytime talk show before. Next up came the parodies with people trying to hop into their door frames and freeze there, which doesn't seem safe so I don't recommend it. However, the best moments of video's pop culture impact came when celebrities began to parody the gorgeous and emotional short film. Lena Dunham danced the choreography on an episode of Saturday Night Live, and just this February, Kristen Wiig and Maddie Ziegler performed the dance together on stage at the Grammy's, and it was arguably the most popular performance of the evening.
Ziegler's look in the video is simple which is going to make it one of the easiest and most recognizable costumes for Halloween.
