Katy Perry is planning to weird out her fans with a topical Halloween costume this year.
The star, who turned 37 on Monday, is known for her outlandish stage outfits but for Halloween, she prefers to go for something whacky rather than revealing.
"For Halloween, I definitely have a very topical costume," she told Vogue. "I like to hit the summary of the year on the head and it's very goofy as I go. There's two ways to go, either a little bit slutty or a little bit weird, and I always tend to lean weird."
The Firework hitmaker starts a Las Vegas residency at the end of December and she revealed she's already creating some amazing new outfits for fans who go and see her at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas.
"I'm prepping for that so I'm not having a ton of downtime except for the couple of days around the holidays," she hinted, adding: "I am actually creating these incredible costumes for my residency coming up that are larger than life and really lean into the Vegas-ness."
The star recently announced a collaboration with clothing retailer Gap, including performing in comfy gear in a new commercial, and hinted that teaming up with the brand may have given her a taste for wearing something more comfortable on stage.
"I felt really cool wearing Gap sweats to perform," she explained. "If I get the opportunity to glam up or wear hair and make-up, I'm like 'okay, let's find something with the sequins.' But, I put on some fuchsia sweats and it feels good."
She also revealed how she's been shopping for outfits for Daisy Dove, the 14-month-old daughter she shares with Orlando Bloom.
"The truth is I'm always on Etsy looking for a handcrafted cute moment. I've favourited a couple of gingerbread dresses for my daughter. Just adorable things," Katy explained.
