For my birthday this last year, my brother threw me a celebrity-themed CLUE party! I drew the character for Lady Gaga.
I took a dress that I had, hemmed the bottom with safety pins about three or four inches; I took an old black T shirt and cut it into strips to map out where I wanted the Origami pyramids to lay on the dress. I safety pinned the fabric to the dress.
I printed a template for a three-sided pyramid off of the internet, and cut out about 50 triangle templates of different sizes. I folded them all, used a glue stick. Super-glued any that didn’t want to stick as well as I wanted to. I took them all outside and spray painted all of them gold. I laid them out across the dress in the manner than I wanted them, and hot glued them on.
Viola! A Lady Gaga Origami Dress Costume. Took me about three free afternoons in a row to do all of the cutting, gluing, etc. NO sewing! All safety pins.
Needed: A package of ~50-100 of the smaller safety pins. Dress can be black or white, she had both Old T Shirt (to match dress color) Package of cardstock. Scissors Glue stick Superglue Hot glue gun Glitter spray paint Gold spray paint Blonde wig (mine was 10 dollars at one of the local wig/weave/accessory shops) – I cut the bangs myself Optional: generic Barbie from the dollar store; I sprayed it gold and she was my Grammy Flesh-toned shoes, to match the ones she wore with these dresses.
Comments for Coolest Lady Gaga Origami Dress Costume 12
I think my DIY Lady Gaga adult costume idea should win the coolest homemade costume contest. My costume was inspired by Lady Gaga Telephone video. I put the costume together myself rather than just going out and purchasing one. Some people say I look like Lady Gaga so I ran with it. Everyone knew who I was trying to be. Some people were pulling me aside to take pics with me. My costume was epic in my eyes and will be one that people will remember.
A lot of time went into this DIY Lady Gaga adult costume idea. Hair and makeup were done by my best friend Lindsayjo Gray who is a freelance makeup artist. She is amazing! The makeup looked awesome exactly like Lady Gaga. The soda can rollers pulled the look together. I did not use a wig, I wanted to look natural.
My Lady Gaga was MY best costume ever. I am so glad that I did this look. It was very sexy memorable and original. How will I ever top this in the years to follow! I hope I made Lady Gaga proud and everyone likes it. Thanks!! :)
Gaga has inspired loads of us, including me. Well here is my homemade Lady Gaga murderer costume. It's a collaboration of all my favorite Gaga stuff especially telephone. The uniqueness is that this is a mixture of my own inspired work and the best thing is the tape and telephone, yes that is a real phone on my head.
Lady Gaga is known as Mommy Monster and this lil monsters recreation I think would make her proud. So if you love her or simply love to hate her please vote my costume up for this lil monster.
Thanks a lot, people really appreciate it. The idea came first in January so I have been busy making the rest with my mum so thankies mummy!
