What Harry Styles fans wore for “Harryween”

The stylists, as Harry Styles fans like to call themselves, dressed as a tribute to their flamboyant idol for his Love on Tour concerts. For the final stop at Madison Square Garden over the weekend, which coincided with Halloween, they went above and beyond. Mr Styles, who has been hailed, rightly or wrongly, as a David Bowie for a new generation, urged fans to arrive in disguise. Just to say, they got the mission, wearing some semblance of the star’s signature boa feathers and moss. The costume extravaganza, presented as Harryween, was a hybrid celebration of the flowery, genderless style of the Prince of Pop and a traditional Allhallows Eve – a veritable fashion show that rivaled cosplay conventions and the most fanciful parades.

Are you part of a fruit bowl?

Yes, I am a strawberry. I am here with my fiance. It’s a banana. My costume is from a website called Dolls Kill.

What about that schoolgirl beret?

It’s mine. I thought it would be cute, like a strawberry top.

Your bag is an imitation watermelon corner. What is it about?

Harry sings a lot about strawberries and watermelons, like in his song “Watermelon Sugar”.

What do these words tell you?

Hmm, how do you say that? I think it’s about making a woman happy.

You make a pretty milkmaid.

In fact, this costume is inspired by the movie “Midsommar”. It is the female lead role right after she became May Queen. I’ve always wanted to do this outfit and thought this would be a great time to show it off.

Have you plucked your wreath of roses in a garden?

I did it. The flowers are from Goodwill. I took a wire hanger, made a circle, wrapped it in stuffing, cut out the flowers and glued them. I made most of my costume out of a bed sheet and cut out stencils to decorate it

What do you think of this pre-concert fashion show?

It’s an incredible community experience. Everyone here is at the top of their game and on the same page. You can talk to anyone online and make a new friend.

Tell us about that shirt-slash-blouse you’re wearing.

It’s by a Puerto Rican designer, Herman Nadal. It’s kind of an interpretation of Harry’s aesthetic, but the designer is local, very Caribbean, very fun.

What does the look say about Harry Styles?

Harry is very present. He is the face of Gucci.

Does that make it authentic?

I like to think he has a say in what he wears. He is a creative artist who dresses as a form of self-expression. He’s a bit of a Gucci, a bit of himself. But he is genuine.

Even in this crowd, your green hair is a beacon.

I am an Oompa Loompa.

Until the pants, it seems.

These pants came as part of another costume. I cut them short, tied suspenders in the back and pinned them in the front.

The collar also makes a statement.

That’s what they wear to the chocolate factory.

Are your red coat and glasses high end cosplay?

I just thought, Harry is very over the top and camp, so why not camp out and mimic his vibe too.

What makes him worthy?

He is real, one of the most authentic artists working today. He knows how to connect. That’s what he did with so many people here.

You look like a bride from a fantasy western.

It was the idea. Originally we were going to order like these big dresses with boas on it from Amazon. But it didn’t work. So I was kind of like, let’s just be brides. Let’s wear these glittery cowboy hats with sails. Hats are the basis of our look.

You are sprawled out on the sidewalk making a poster. What will he say?

Our friend Caroline came in lobster. The message will therefore read: “Have you ever seen a lobster dance?” I think that’s something Harry would react to.

What if he does?

Maybe he will dance with her.

You look like a pair of mermaids. Was that the goal?

No, I wanted a “Mamma Mia!” moment with my mom. But mom did the full suit, and I did the little one. Who Said Software Engineers Can’t Have Fun?

It’s an adventurer costume. What was the source?

It is a combination of the Internet. We wanted to do a mother-daughter look. The inspiration started with Harry. But it’s also “Mamma Mia!”

Your helmet is a statement. Does he have a name?

It was a fascinator that I have worn before. I added some pinks to make it fuller and matched it with this little floral dress that I wear over a turtleneck.

Do I see a theme here?

It’s kind of a cross-pollination between Harry and Hollywood. We felt like a lot of people would have Halloween themes. We wanted to get off the beaten track a bit.

You are perfectly coordinated.

I pride myself on my style, trying to keep up with the times.

But your hat seems to be a throwback.

The top hat is a must-have on Day of the Dead. We don’t believe in buying costumes from a costume store. We went to Goodwill, bought flowers from Michael, and we kind of mixed it up. Two hours ago, we were putting on makeup. We had no idea what we were doing.

Looks like you’ve put a lot of work into your look.

This is from Amazon.

I had no idea Amazon offered something so royal.

It’s inspired by the 1920s. I’m a big fan of the 1920s. I love style, architecture and fashion.

Is there an obscure Styles connection?

Her music video “Treat People with Kindness” has a lot of references from the 1920s. I just thought I’d like to go.

Shall we go back in spirit to the roaring twenties?

Only in the sense that once this pandemic is over, we can all party, interact again.
