Looking for an alt costume idea? Check out the video for Lorde's "Tennis Court." It features the New Zealand-based singer in a milkmaid-braid crown, with dark lips that offset her ghostly pale skin. It's "a little gothy, a little clubby, and altogether very cool," says our sister site. In other words, it's a perfect look to rip off for tonight's Halloween festivities, whatever they may be.
