Updated on February 7, 2015

How to Dress Like Stacee Jaxx | Rock of Ages Cosplay Tutorial

Stacee Jaxx is the rock 'n' roll playboy protagonist of Rock of Ages. Played by a shirtless, tattooed Tom Cruise, Stacee Jaxx is sure to be a wildly popular costume for guys this Halloween. Looking to create a Stacee Jaxx costume for a Halloween party, convention or other cosplay event? This Rock of Ages cosplay tutorial has you covered from pistol tattoos to leather pants. Here you'll find creative, budget-savvy ideas for recreating Stacee Jaxx's rock star look, including authentic details like his tattoos, jewelry, smudged makeup and '80s-style clothing.

Rock's loneliest cowboy shows off his best assets in a pair of skintight black leather pants. Regardless of how comfortable you are with showing off your goods, tight slacks are essential when putting together a legit Stacee Jaxx costume. If real leather pants are out of your price range or comfort level, opt for a well-tailored pair of black denim jeans.

Stacee Jaxx also rarely sports a shirt -- and with rock 'n' roll abs and a bevy of bad-ass tattoos, why should he? If going bare-chested on Halloween doesn't appeal to you, choose something thin and vintage, preferably a loose tank top or cut-off t-shirt featuring a cross, skull or other interesting design.

Stacee Jaxx's flashiest fashion statement, his cream-colored fur coat, might be difficult to replicate on a dime. If cash if a concern, scan the racks at local thrift stores like Salvation Army and Goodwill for some truly vintage outerwear -- but be prepared to walk around in something that might just reek of moth balls and your grandmother's attic. Don't worry about hunting down a traditionally "male" jacket, either. Stacee Jaxx pushes boundaries. Your Halloween costume can do the same.

Who would Rock's Loneliest Cowboy be without his signature accessories? Throughout the Rock of Ages movie, Tom Cruise sports a black cowboy hat, a black or navy blue paisley bandanna, reflective aviator sunglasses and over-the-top silver belt buckles. Make sure your accessories are worthy of an infamous rock god by choosing pieces with eccentric western- and motorcycle-style details.

If a cowboy hat doesn't fit your style, channel your inner Stacee Jaxx, who, as eccentric as real-life Axl Rose, ties a paisley bandanna around his forehead.

Stacee Jaxx isn't afraid of anyone questioning his masculinity and he shows off that confidence with a host of rings, bracelets and necklaces. For your Stacee Jaxx costume, choose jewelry featuring skulls, crosses and other traditional rock 'n' roll symbols. Loads of flashy pieces are available online but don't forget to scan the jewelry cases at stores like Salvation Army for cheap vintage accessories.

      Aren't the sunglasses that Stacee Jaxx (aka Tom Cruise) is wearing smoke Lens and not mirrored? That's what it looks like to me. Anybody else?
