How to dress up as Sarah Paulson for Halloween: 6 different styles!
This Halloween, pays homage to the queen of chameleons, Sarah Paulson. The actress can play anyone – and over the course of her career she has played many different characters. His work on shows performed by Ryan Murphy alone is breathtaking. She has been nominated for an Emmy for the past five years and won a few months ago for her performance as Marcia Clark in People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.
So the Paulson characters – or even the actress herself – are a wonderful roulette wheel to spin if you’re looking for an inventive Halloween costume. Here are six different Sarah Paulson’s that you can be this year:
Hypodermic sally AHS: Hotel
In death, the ghost junkie looks like she was in real life, so the more trashy the better. Wear an animal print coat with a stringy blonde wig, a black choker, and lots of dark eye makeup. Complete the outfit with ripped fishnet stockings and heels.
Billie Dean Howard from AHS: Hotel
To dress up as a medium, all you need to do is find an inexpensive polyester print dress at the thrift store, add a strand of faux pearls, and get a blonde wig. Bonus touch: Glue on false nails.
Marcia Clark from The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story
The central element of the avocado look is the power suit. Find one with a skirt and shoulder pads, if you can. A short brown wig completes the outfit. Accessorize with a briefcase full of legal pads.

As above, but with a curly brown wig.
Shelby Miller from AHS: Roanoke
Put on a long dirty blonde wig and sweep the hair over one shoulder. Put on a button down shirt and a pair of jeans and scream a lot.

It’s time to glean it! First, buy an emerald green dress – if it has glitter or sequins, even better. The neckline should be very low, which you may need to cut yourself. Add a sleek short blonde wig and chunky earrings. And, of course, tote around a gold statuette like Paulson’s Emmy.
