Billie Eilish Yellow Outfit from Bad Guy

In the music video for Bad Guy, Billie Eilish smashes through the backdrop in an all-yellow outfit with hoodie and baggy cargo pants. Along with removing her Invisalign and wearing a snorkeling mask, this outfit reflects her goofy streetwear style that doesn’t take itself too seriously. You pay the price for the authentic pieces from Reserved Essential or opt for the more attainable alternatives… we’ve listed both.

Shy Ronnie

In the Saturday Night Live digital shorts “Shy Ronnie” and “Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde”, Shy Ronnie (Andy Samberg) is an overly shy character who duos with Clyde (played by Rihanna). After Rihanna sings the hook and it’s time for Ronnie to rap, he finds himself too awkward to perform, instead whispering into the mic, wetting his pants, and letting out an awkward haHAA laugh that has since become a meme and Twitch emote. For this costume, use the fake blood for his left foot, where he accidentally shoots himself while robbing a bank.

Clyde from Ronnie & Clyde

In the Lonely Island follow-up to Shy Ronnie, Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde, Clyde (played by Rihanna) is a 1920s gangster who robs a bank with Shy Ronnie. Maybe not the best choice of criminal accomplice or musical partner ever, as Shy Ronnie shoots himself in the foot and whispers his commands to the hostages. Supply your own Jon Hamm to complete the look.

Freddie Mercury as Bet Lynch from “I Want To Break Free”

Queen’s 1984 video for their song, “I Want To Break Free” featured the foursome dressed in drag as characters from “Coronation Street” a long-running soap opera from the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, MTV execs and fans in the United States didn’t get it and it caused a minor controversy, stalling their career stateside, until at least the early 90s, after frontman, Freddie Mercury’s death. The video is now considered a camp classic.

Childish Gambino from This Is America

Childish Gambino from This Is America

In the music video for “This is America”, Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) raps and dances as an expression of various themes including being black in America, gun violence, and police brutality. His gold chains are a nod to slavery, his movements to caricatures of Jim Crow, and the yellow shoes, who knows. Sew black buttons on the fly to get the pants matching as close as possible.

Tom DeLonge in First Date Video

In Blink-182’s music video for “First Date,” Tom DeLonge assumes his alter-ego Boomer, a crude and inconsiderate dimwit. Not much is known about Boomer other than that he has kissed his own brother, and is currently in prison for “undisclosed reasons.” For this costume, pretty much any lightly-colored yellow shirt will work.
