Costumes to Honor Two Passing Stars
Michael Jackson may not have had the following he had back in the eighties, and he certainly had quite a bit of bad press in the last several years, but for some there is no denying he once had talent. Often Jackson was referred to as the “King of Pop.”¬ù June 25th, 2009 it was announced the Michael Jackson died of a heart attack after being rushed to the hospital and ending up in a coma. His most popular album has always been Thriller.
His career was one that reached new heights like having the strongest crossover in the 1980’s as an African American entertainer. Michael Jackson began his career at eleven when he was part of the Jackson 5. Much of his music was hip hop, poop, and contemporary R&B. He was most well known for his moonwalk and the robot. All during the eighties the moonwalk was constantly talked about and used by others in honor of Jackson’s talents. On stage he always had on one white glove during the earlier 80’s. Many of his onstage costumes were glittery dazzling the crowds. The most well known Michael Jackson costume is the one where he wore tight black pants, white socks, black shoes, a white shirt, and a red leather jacket. Of course the white glove and sunshades were also part of the stage appearance.
The second star to pass away this week was Farrah Fawcett. In the past few years she did not hit the screen very often, instead she suffered from cancer. On June 25th, 2009 she lost that battle. Farrah Fawcett was one of the first ladies in the 70’s to grab international acclaim as a star. She was born in Texas, discovered by a Magazine, and was almost an instant success. She was most well known for her work on Charlie’s Angels and modeling. She had several off Braodway appearances during her career.
Farrah Fawcett’s hair is perhaps the thing people will remember most, because it was blonde, flowing, and stunning completing the beautiful picture she made. Her hairstyle was emulated by millions of women around the world. To honor a great actress, and one who seemed very down to earth there are several costume choices. You can go for the Farrah Fawcett costume with the Farrah Fawcett wig, red 70’s bathing suit and look like a fashion model. You can also choose the Charlie’s Angels costume again a 70’s costume, but with long pants, high heels, and a stunning blouse.
Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett will both be remembered for several years for the talents they displayed throughout their career.
