Easy DIY Nicki Minaj Costume from the "Anaconda" Music Video
Weeks before the music video for Nicki Minaj's Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampled single "Anaconda" dropped, an internet frenzy was sparked thanks to the help of an extremely racy cover image, several promo pictures with her "dancing" with label-mate Drake, and a teaser clip that showed Nicki twerking that hypnotizing booty.
When the video finally dropped, the internet exploded. In case you haven't seen it, check it out below. Watch it. I'll wait.
It's as explicit and sexually-charged as you would expect from the female rapper, but it's entertaining as hell and quite memorable. So memorable, in fact, that a Halloween costume might just be the right idea to take this video to the next level.
If you're audacious enough to model her revealing outfit, you can check out this tutorial from Clevver Style, where they show you how to make the necklace body chain that Minaj dons at the beginning of the video. Of course, it's not all made from gold, but who could afford that anyway?
The rest of the outfit consists merely of a gold metallic top and some black booty shorts.
In the music video she rocks several other outfits, one of which includes a pink top, gold earrings, short acid-washed jean-shorts, and a pair of neon Air Jordan VIs. This outfit is also extremely easy to put together and may be the most memorable of them all.
