Lady Gaga’s sexy and outrageous fashions have earned her celebrity and notoriety. They also make a fantastic costume for Halloween. You can make many of the costumes that Lady Gaga has worn in her music videos and on stage. Here are some ideas for making cheap and easy versions of some of the most popular Lady Gaga Halloween costumes.
Lady Gaga Bubble Dress Halloween Costume Ideas
To get started making a homemade Lady Gaga bubble dress Halloween costume, get a sleeveless flesh-colored leotard. Then find at least 100 crystal clear balloons. Blow up the balloons into several different sizes and tie them off. Use flesh-colored thread to sew the tied end of the clear balloons to the leotard. Take care not to poke the air-filled part of the balloons with the needle, or they will pop. Start sewing on the smallest balloons at the center of the leotard at both the front and back. Then attach the larger balloons at the shoulders, on the sides and at the hip line. Add lots of large balloons at the left side of the bubble dress costume to form an arc of balloons. If necessary, you can also use a balloon decorating strip to hold your balloons in the right place. The balloon decorating strip should be made from clear plastic and should have small holes for inserting the tied ends of the balloons. You can also cut down a larger balloon decorating strip if you can’t find a small one to fit your costume. Attach the decorating strip or segment to the leotard with thread before attaching the balloons. Leave a section at the back of the costume free of balloons so that you can sit down if you need to.
If you’re concerned about the balloons popping, you can use clear acrylic ornaments instead. Sew various sizes of the ornaments onto the leotard as you would the balloons. However, keep in mind this will create a stiffer, more restricting costume.
Put on a pair of black fishnet panty hose prior to putting on the Lady Gaga bubble dress costume. Also wear a short, straight blond wig in a pageboy style, and a pair of clear high heeled plastic shoes. To do Lady Gaga makeup, put on heavy eyeliner and false eyelashes with plenty of mascara, light blush and pink lipstick.
Lady Gaga Bad Romance Halloween Costume Ideas
The simplest Lady Gaga Halloween costume you can make from the Bad Romance music video is the black costume. Get a long sleeved black turtleneck top, a pair of black panty hose or tights and a short black skirt. Then get a large piece of poster board and spray paint it black on both sides. Once the poster board has dried, cut it into a strip that’s about 12 inches wide. Then twist the poster board into a cylinder that’s just large enough to fit on your head, then trim off the excess length. Mark out some 2-inch wide spikes on the poster board with a pencil, then cut them out with scissors. Hot glue the seam of the Lady Gaga Bad Romance crown together. Wear huge sunglasses, tall black high heels and a curly long blond wig to make your black Lady Gaga Bad Romance costume complete.
To make an easy version of Lady Gaga’s sexy red costume from the Bad Romance video, get a red tube top, a pair of matching red bikini bottoms and one matching red lace thigh-high stocking. Also find two high-heeled black platform boots. Get some 2 inch wide strips of red fabric that match the other red Lady Gaga clothing pieces. Measure the fabric strips while you’re wearing the costume clothes, placing them between the bikini bottoms and the tube top at the center, on in the front and one in back. Then sew the tube top to the bikini bottoms using these two strips of red fabric. Also attach a wider strip of red fabric to the bottom left of the bikini bottoms to make them look more like shorts or hot pants on that side. Wear the single thigh-high stocking on your right leg. Add wrist-length black gloves. Wear false eyelashes, heavy eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara and dark lipstick to make your Lady Gaga red Halloween costume complete.
Lady Gaga Paparazzi Halloween Costume Ideas
To make a moderately cheap and easy Lady Gaga Paparazzi Halloween costume, get a full length long sleeved white satin unitard. Then get some black and white sheer fabric such as tulle or chiffon. Measure the length between your waist and the middle of your calf. Cut two of the pieces of the black fabric and one piece of the white fabric to this length. Cut the width of the three pieces of fabric so that they will cover the side and back of the leotard. Place the white sheer fabric piece between the two black pieces and sew them together at the top. Then sew them just below the waistline of the leotard on the right side and in the back to form a partial skirt.
Then measure some shorter pieces of sheer fabric, two black and one white, for the shoulder of the Lady Gaga Paparazzi Halloween costume. The fabric should go from your shoulder to the end of your elbow. Sandwich the white piece of fabric between the two black pieces of fabric and sew them together at the top. Attach this piece to the right shoulder of the leotard.
Get some black sheer fabric trim that’s about 1 to 2 inches wide. Sew this in a spiral pattern down the left leg of the leotard. Finish the Lady Gaga Paparazzi costume with a white belt, a short blond wig, cross-shaped earrings and tall black high heeled sandals. Put on heavy black eyeliner and mascara, extending the eyeliner slightly beyond the corner of your eye. Fill in blue eyeshadow from the eyelid to the eyebrow. Wear scant blush and pale lipstick.
You can make another Lady Gaga Paparazzi Halloween costume by getting a bright yellow sleeveless jumpsuit. Make small faces with sunglasses and black Mickey Mouse ears on black helmets using PVC fabric, paper or felt. Attach them at intervals all over the jumpsuit. Add a black lace-up bodice and round black sunglasses with black round flip-up covers. Flip the covers up and out so that they look like Mickey Mouse ears. If you like, you can also buy Mickey Mouse sunglasses to achieve this effect. Attach yellow and black fabric to the arm holes of the jumpsuit. Wear a spiked leather bracelet on your left arm. Paint your fingernails black. To finish your Lady Gaga Paparazzi costume, wear black lipstick, covering only the center of your lips.
