Drake & Rihanna Couples Costume Ideas
Do you and your significant other/best friend/neighbor/Halloween party cohost want to coordinate your costumes this All Hallow's Eve? Do neither you nor your significant other/best friend/neighbor/Halloween party cohost know what you want to wear for All Hallow's Eve? And do you and your significant other/best friend/neighbor/Halloween party cohost adore the legendary maybe-couple Aubrey Graham and Robyn Fenty? If you answered "Yes, as a matter of fact, we do" to all three of those questions, then here's an idea for ya: Why don't you two dress up like Rihanna and Drake for Halloween this year?
I realize this seems like an overwhelming undertaking; as far as Rihanna and Drake are concerned, there's no shortage of ensembles to choose from. Do you go with the "Hotline Bling" sweater and the "Umbrella" silver body paint? The fringe-tastic 2016 BRIT Awards outfits? The "Take Care" music video? The iconic looks are endless.
...And somehow, I managed to narrow the daunting list down to a few looks. Here are some AubRih couples costumes you and your 'stume buddy can try this Halloween:
Early '00s Aubrey & Robyn
The Ballad of Aubrey and Robyn began in the early 2000s, so why not commemorate that historic moment with a Halloween ensemble?
At the 2016 VMAs, Drake shared the story of how and when he met RiRi: In 2005, AubRih first crossed paths on the set of the "Pon de Replay" music video. So for the Rih costume, it only feels right to look to that vid for inspiration. Tie up a sequined gold top, throw on a pair of distressed jeans over your pink bikini, and get your dance on.
Calvin Klein Plus Size Metallic Cap-Sleeve Top, $31, Macy's
Destroyed Drawstring Jeans, $28, Forever 21
Cutout Chandelier Earrings, $6, Forever 21
Gold and Green Patina Bangle Bracelet Set, $11, Claire’s
Is there anything more early ‘00s Drake than Degrassi: The Next Generation character Jimmy Brooks? Nope, nope, nope. Using iron-on letters, iron-on numbers, and a blank jersey, construct your very own Degrassi basketball uniform.
The “What’s My Name?” Music Video
I don't know if I could ever pick a favorite AubRih music video, but this one would definitely be a contender.
Southwestern Patterned Shorts, $10, Forever 21
Plus Size Floral Gauze Shorts, $15, Forever 21
Want to take these shorts up a notch? Sew orange, green, yellow, and blue ribbon onto the seams to recreate the shorts RiRi wears in the vid.
If you're feeling brave, cut and style this wig into a shoulder-length bob. Otherwise, just bobby pin the wig to create a faux bob.
Don't forget to put a red tulle bow on the wig.
His look is pretty easy: Get a carton of milk and a UMass sweatshirt and you're good to go.
For Rihanna & Drake:
Identical shark costumes are the key here. You and your costume duo partner could go with full-on 'stumes or a sweatshirt/fin look. Whatever you choose, be sure to wear "RIHANNA'S TATTOO" and "DRAKE'S TATTOO" name tags, too.
Power Wash Crewneck Long Sleeve T-Shirt, $32, American Apparel
Plus Size Zip-Up Hoodie, $16, Forever 21
Halloween is less than two months away, AubRih Stans, so get to work work work work work work on those 'stumes.
