Go Gaga, and rock the neighborhood for Halloween fun.
Lady Gaga may be an “Applause” target on the world’s music scene. But a Lady Gaga Halloween costume gains plenty of attention among trick or treaters and holiday masqueraders. The wildly popular glam rocker, born as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, is known for her outlandish outfits, particularly on stage, which gain plenty of “Paparazzi” attention and make her a prime subject for Halloween costuming. Halloween costume shops display a full array of Lady Gaga costumes, showing off the flamboyant fashion outfits of the popular singer. But these hot store-bought Halloween costumes are costly. Putting together a rock star ensemble for Halloween is pretty simple, requiring a lot less investment than a “Bad Romance.”
Here’s how to dress up as Lady Gaga for Halloween.
The fashion outfit takes a little more imagination than the average Halloween “Monster” getup. Lady Gaga stretches (and perhaps even surpasses) the limits of respectability with her own wardrobing choices, so parents will want to supervise the process of costuming extra carefully, if children choose this costume option.
Flashy or gaudy ruffled dresses may be found at resale shops or thrift stores and shortened or altered to look like Lady Gaga’s showy attire. Cast-off bridesmaid dresses and prom gowns can be cut off to create Lady Gaga stage looks for Halloween costuming. A particularly daring trick-or-treater or Halloween party-goer might choose to put on colorful one-piece maillot-style swimsuit, ice skating dress, or dance leotard over a pair of colorful tights and add a flashy short jacket on top. Slip on a pair of bright mini-shorts (like satiny boxers or bike shorts) for a bit more modesty, if desired. Skip the infamous Lady Gaga meat dress, unless you plan on fending off the neighborhood dogs while trick or treating on Halloween.
Pick out a pair of platform shoes or trendy ankle boots, or slip into some sporty sneakers with lots of bling (for safer neighborhood trick or treating).
Find a platinum or neon golden wig, sporting longer locks, to complete the Lady Gaga look for Halloween. The bigger the hairstyle, the better. Add eyeshadow, eyeliner, full fake eyelashes and bright red or neon pink lipstick.
The final touch for a do-it-yourself Lady Gaga Halloween costume is a fabulously flashy mask to deck out one’s own “Poker Face.” Pick up a plain demi-mask (eye-covering mask) or a pair of big, glitzy, cheap sunglasses at the dollar or discount store. Use a hot-melt glue gun to decorate the mask or glasses (after punching out the lenses) with feathers, sequins, glitter, or other adornments. Or cut out the word “Gaga” from colorful craft foam, and hot-melt glue that over the mask or glasses. Strap on a headset (with mouthpiece) to complete the singer’s look.
Go all out for a striking fashion statement, aiming for “The Edge of Glory,” or at least the edge of fashion reality. Really go ga-ga, and “Just Dance.” Don’t worry. Even Gaga wasn’t “Born This Way.” It is impossible to overdo it with a do-it-yourself Lady Gaga costume for Halloween.
