Recreate Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" Costumes for Halloween

You loved the video, now here are three ways to make those bootylicious looks your own

The indisputable champion of 2014 is the booty. Sir Mix-a-Lot was clearly ahead of his time with "Baby Got Back," and this year reigning ass queen Nicki Minaj made it all popular again with "Anacoda." The bottylicious (and record-breaking) video finds Minaj rocking a series of revealing, raunchy and ravishing looks. Thinking about adopting it for your own this Halloween? Don't fret! We've got you covered.

Click through to find three awesome Nicki Minaj "Anaconda" costume ideas. And while you're getting some because you've got buns, hun, check out our list of the best "Anaconda" parodies. They're gold!

The Golden Goddess

Sex god? More like golden goddess! Nicki Minaj isn't one to steer clear of adventurous fashion choices, so it's not surprising the hip hop heartthrob would say "yes" to wearing gold chains and suggestive black booty shorts in the opening scene of "Anaconda." That's right, folks! For Halloween, it's time to get kind of nude!

Grab this look by heading to  American Apparel and investing in black jersey high-waisted hot shorts. AA out of your price range? No problem—most athletic goods stores should carry form-fitting bike shorts that will work just as well. Or, if you're feeling really brave, black boy short underwear! Next head to Party City and grab a bunch of metallic chains. (Many of these will belong to some pimp costume; ignore that.) Grab a glue gun and get to making a Star-Wars-Princess-Leia-at-the-Catina-level sultry ensemble. Add some round gold earrings and a handful of gold bracelets, and you're good to go!

Perfectly Pink and Proper

When inside her jungle haven in the "Anaconda" vid, Minaj returns to rocking her iconic pink wig. (She's been opting for a more natural look with her upcoming third studio album, The Pinkprint.) In the scene, our video vixen pours whip cream all over her body. The best part? Her outfit is pretty easy to recreate: The lady is dressed as a sexy french maid.

Most costume stores carry a variant of a tantalizing housekeeper, so your search will be easy. Grab a hot pink wig from one of these shops, and you're ready! We suggest dropping the white gloves that will probably come with your pre-made costume and donning a black fishnet pair instead.

And of course: Don't forget the can of whip cream.

Swimmingly Seductive

Heeeeeeeeello, this is easy as pie! Not only is it simple, but this is a costume that might make its way into your regular summer rotation. We're talking swimsuits! In one overwhelmingly steamy part of the vid, Minaj rocks a hot pink cut-out number, legs firmly implanted in water. Since we're in the midst of fall, a swimsuit probably isn't your top choice—unless you live in a sunshine state.

Hot pink cut-out swimsuits were a staple last summer season, but that doesn't mean they're going anywhere. You'd do well to check your local mall, or hop on style sites like Celebrityfashionista.com for more info.

Mar 20: Gold Everything

Can this moment be any cuter? This past weekend Beyoncé and Blue Ivy attended the Wearable Art Gala at WACO Theater Center in matching custom made gold dresses. The Gala honored Bey with the WACO Humanitarian Awards and upon receiving it, the artist thanked her mother in a beautiful speech.
