Adam Lambert on American Idol Season 8Halloween's almost here, so we're giving tips on how to dress like your favorite TV characters.

The Costume:
'American Idol' season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert; for couples, Lambert and 'Idol' winner Kris Allen

What You'll Need: The Lambert look really comes down to three things: the hair, the makeup and the leather. For the hair, you could style your own in that Lambert spiky 'do (see tips here), or you could buy a Lambert wig (go to eBay and type in "Adam Lambert wig"). For the makeup, the 'AI' runner-up is all about the black fingernail polish and eyeliner. And for the outfit, think black, tight and leather: leather jacket, leather pants, black T-shirt (v-neck and low-cut, preferably), black boots (platform or snakeskin is a plus), a wallet chain and various skull rings and heavy necklaces.

For the couple look, add a Kris Allen to the mix, with a black, short, layered hairdo; light, scruffy facial hair; jeans; a tight-fitting plaid button-down shirt; a choker; a leather bracelet; a guitar; and, of course, a wedding ring.

Optional Accessories: Because Kris, while adorable, doesn't have the most distinctive look, the Kris costume button-down shirt could be replaced with a simple, DIY T-shirt that reads "I won American Idol. He didn't." -- with an arrow pointing to Adam.
