How can I make a Lady Gaga Halloween costume?
There are three approaches you can take to dressing like Lady Gaga.
- Sequins and sunglasses: Lady Gaga is known for wearing sequins all over her dresses and always wearing a pair of over-sized sunglasses. If you are not comfortable with wearing her super avant-garde pieces, try adding a geometric sequin design to a plain black dress and putting on a blond wig and over-sized sunglasses. Some interesting sunglasses are the cigarette-glasses from her "Telephone" music video.
- Lace over your face: Lady Gaga’s infamous red costume with lace covering her face would make the perfect Halloween costume. Since lace is see-through, your vision won’t be too impaired. However, if you are nervous about seeing while trick-or-treating, try cutting holes by your eyes or even getting a very sheer lace material. Make sure to top it off with an exquisite red crown of feathers. This costume is pretty inexpensive. Just visit your local craft store.
- The Meat Dress: If you really want to turn heads on Halloween, try mimicking Lady Gaga’s meat dress from the 2010 MTV VMAs. You will definitely give people a shock (and get chased down by the local neighborhood dog). You don’t have to make the dress out of actual meat – you can probably find some fabric that mimics meat, or just paint a white fabric to save some money (and your fellow trick-or-treaters the smell of your rotting-meat-costume).
For Lady Gaga, every day is Halloween. So a simple google search of Lady Gaga’s best outfits will also give you great inspiration. However, these are my personal favorites for the Gaga fan whether you are modest or avant-garde.
