Step 1: From Bottom to Top

Before you can rock all that tutu pizzazz and pleather armor, you gotta get boots and tights. It's a pretty simple foundation. Just remember: black on black on black. Black boots, black tights. You can really get either anywhere, but we recommend classic Dr. Marten's and ASOS nylons. You can never go wrong with a pair of those.

Step 2: Tulle Your Tutu

Inching on up and you hit the headliner of this outfit's perfection: the tulle skirt, the blood red tutu that doesn't quit. These are easier to come by than you'd imagine. Just pay a visit to your local Party City or costume shop! If they're out of stock, the Internet is a great resource. They're very, very cheap on Amazon; just make sure you're buying the correct length...and size. Some of these bad boys are a tragic "one size fits all" deal.

Step 3: Pleather, Baby!

The next level of Babymetal's iconic ensemble is the black fabric that sits on their tutus. Sometimes it's a heavy material, like false chain metal, but more often than not, it's leather. Dead cow's an expensive fabric, so if you're going to take part, it might be best to rock pleather. You could cut up an old jacket or grab from an old Halloween costume (Party City also delivers in this department), like the shiny black of an old vampire cape. Get creative!

Step 4: Accessorize...at your local mall.

Now that you've got your fundamental look in place, it's time to accessorize. Babymetal always rock the studded look, so find yourself a cheap wrist cuff. You can get it anywhere, but we recommend your local Hot Topic. That's right, folks! Head to the mall. 

To get those too-cute pigtails or double buns, stay in that shop and find yourself some bows. You might get lucky and even score some with the My Chemical Romance logo on them!

Feb. 15: Big Things Coming

Steve Aoki and Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui are putting in some studio time and we can barely contain our excitement! The two artists shared a couple photos on Twitter during their sesh, and by the looks of it the outcome will be epic. "Anywaaaaay I'm excited @steveaoki is a hommieeee” tweeted Jauregui. This won’t be the first time Lauren go solo. Late last year the 5H member teamed up with Marian Hill for “Back To Me."
