"BBHMM" (Bitch Better Have My Money) was easily one of the most iconic videos and songs of 2015. Rihanna is also one of the most incredibly fashion forward stars in the entertainment and music industries riht now. For these reasons, a zombie Rihanna Halloween costume is the ideal way to embrace killer fashion and spooky style during your annual Halloween party.
There are tons of options for a Rihanna zombie costume. Whether you choose to recreate one of her Dior ads, her Met Gala look, or her green fishnet dress, she's not short on the fashion options. For me one of her most iconic looks is her "BBHMM" cover art look.
When "BBHMM" premiered this summer, the video caused an insane stir. Not only was it a stylish masterpiece, but it featured some questionable graphic violence that garnered criticism from many. However, the video was — no doubt about it — a major success. It spawned hilarious memes, style tips, and even one heck of a hilarious lip sync battle between Ellen Degeneres, Justin Timberlake, and Jimmy Fallon. The song definitely has staying power, and the video will — more than likely — become one of her best known works. So what better way to celebrate your love for Rihanna this Halloween than to become her zombified BBHMM self?
The easiest and fastest look for your spooky needs will be the "BBHMM" single cover, so what will you need?
Faux Shearling Moto Jacket, $54.90, Forever21
Rihanna's jacket is a bit oversized so if you're purchasing this jacket, go up a size. However, you can still pull over the look with a fitted leather jacket.
V-Neck Cami, $3.00, Old Navy
In the cover, Rihanna is topless, and if you're daring and own double stick tape, go for it. However, if you want to be a bit more covered up, grab a nude cami to go underneath.
Retractable Brow Pencil, $13.00, Sephora
The most crucial aspect of the "BBHMM" zombie costume is Rihanna's beauty look. You'll need the deepest color of brow pencil, and then go nuts on your brows. Make sure they're straight across instead of arched and as thick as your heart desires.
Deep Lip Color
NYX Matte Lipstick in Eden, $5.99, Ulta
Rihanna also rocks a deep colored lip along with her bold brow, so grab a burgundy or wine colored lippy for the look.
Hematite Mesh Crystal V Shaped Teardrop Drop Earrings, $10.00, Claire's
Met Gala Rihanna
The "BBHMM" video isn't RiRi's only incredible look. How could anyone forget her Met Gala cape from this year's celebration? The brilliant mustard yellow cape and incredible headpiece were exceptional stand outs on the stairs of the Met. Plus, the moment introduced many to the incredible Guo Pei. So what will you need to rock this look?

There are tons of incredible zombie YouTube tutorials online to help you zombify your iconic Rihanna looks. Whether you're looking to get gory or stay a bit more tame, there's a way for you to do it.
This tutorial allows you to rock eyeliner with your zombie wounds. Personally, I think this zombie look would be perfect with Rihanna's Met Gala style.

This post apocalyptic zombie is ideal for the "BBHMM" cover.
