When it comes to Halloween, eating the candy is only part of the fun. Taking on a whole new identity is the other exciting aspect of the spooky day and is something that both Lindsay Ell and Kassi Ashton have come to love about Halloween.
“I love Halloween. I just love being able to dress up… I love being able to play a show dressed up as something,” Ell shared with Sounds Like Nashville. “Sometimes we’ve done themed costumes with the band. One of my favorite was dressing up as Gwen Stefani. I wore a platinum wig and had the Gwen shirt… that was one of my favorites. I love dressing up as different rock stars or country stars or pop stars. It’s fun to sing a song as a different artist.”

“Black Motorcycle” singer Kassi Ashton agrees with Ell, adding that she likes to think outside of the box when it comes to picking out her Hallows Eve wear.
“One of my favorite costumes I ever did was last minute,” she explained. “It was one of the most genius things I think I’ve ever done because my boyfriend and I were going as couples, but I don’t like traditional couples costumes. I don’t wanna be the Grease Sandy, I don’t wanna do that. I want something cool.”
“I was like ‘We should be devils’ and he was like ‘No, I’m not wearing a cape and a tail,’” she recalled with a laugh. I was like ‘No, let’s wear really cool red clothes and just put horns on.’ So, we went and got him and all red Adidas track suit and I wore a red fur coat and I was like ‘Oh yeah.’ Plus everything we bought, we can wear again! So if anybody wants to steal my idea, I’m good with it.”
