Today in WTF: You too can be Zakk Wylde for Halloween

Posted by on October 8, 2013

zakkwHey look everyone, it’s October already! The most metal of months (besides March, perhaps) ends with the most metal of holidays, which is of course Halloween. If you haven’t figured out what your costume is going to be yet, Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society have your problem solved. The band’s web site is selling a “Zakk costume beard beanie.”For only $65, you’ll get a black beanie with an embroidered BLS logo on the front of it. That’s a $25 value right there. But wait, there’s more! The beanie is attached to a long yarn beard. You can look just like Zakk, only a lot less badass.

It could actually be argued that a lot of BLS fans don’t need a Halloween costume to look like Zakk Wylde. Many of them are bearded dudes that rock Black Label Society leather jackets, especially at the band’s shows. In fact, we’d argue that the only band that has more of a dress code is Turbonegro, but that’s more sassy biker than the Sons of Anarchy vibe that BLS fans rock. 

This is the first time we’ve seen this, but we’ve got to imagine an Amon Amarth one can’t be that far behind.
