Coolest Homemade Senior Lady Gaga Halloween Costume 22
Homemade Senior Lady Gaga Halloween Costume
Having been born on Halloween I decided to join in the work dress up contest. My son had created a wig (which I previously posted) and I decided I would use it to be the Senior Lady Gaga.
The wig was constructed using human hair which was colored at the ends, a stocking cap, tulle, a feather and hot glue gun. The hair was applied in a circular pattern around the stocking cap and the tulle and feather were hot glued in place. The hair was then curled and styled accordingly.
For the homemade Senior Lady Gaga Halloween costume I purchased a dress at a vintage shop for $10 because of the color and glitz (keep in mind that at my age, we were not doing lace and bikini wear). I found plastic 45 rpm records that I was going to use to re-decorate one of our rooms. I took one of the records and glued it on to an elastic belt. I inserted shoulder pads on the inside of the dress with the glue gun and then glued records on to the shoulders of the dress.
I had a fake fur piece laying around from an old sweater. I glued it to create a V-shape and wear as a neck piece. Large netted arm warmers, a glitzy microphone, glasses, bird lips and thigh highs completed the outfit. I accessorized with jewelry on the wrists.
As I made my grand entrance no one at work would have thought that I would be coming out as a Senior Gaga Impersonator. The contest was won, many laughs were to be had and good times that could not be replicated (til next year that is). One of my best put together, and not expensive costume ideas.
Gaga, Ooh La La! Lady Gaga was so much fun to do. She's crazy, so anything goes, right?
This Homemade Lady Gaga Costume started with a dress. A gold sparkly dress. We added on some lace material at the bottom, with the little bit of sewing me and my mom knew how to do. We got a black tee, and added cones on the shoulders. We took foam sheets (get at any local craft store), and stapled and hot glued them into the cone shape. we bought elastic, and connected them to the foam and put it under my shoulders. It didn't stay on to well, so we hot glued it to the tee-shirt.
We bought stiff tulle and attached it to the side bottom of the dress, sticking out all over. I picked up the shoes off the sale rack at DSW,(great prices!) and the sunglasses were from H&M accessories. The wig, the most important part, we did some research online for a nice wig. We found it eventually, and we're extremely impressed with its soft texture, and its pinpoint lady gaga perfection!
I got some face paint, drew a lightning bolt. My mom did the eye makeup, and I did the iconic lady gaga "small" lips with red lip pencil. I picked up some lace gloves, and it was complete.
This Homemade Lady Gaga Costume is actually easier to make then you think. I bought a one piece from the lingerie section in Wal-Mart. I had black sunglasses that I put rhinestones on, cut the fingers off a pair of black gloves and sprinkled some glitter on them and bought fake nails. I also purchased fishnets from Spenceers and a wig online and jewelry from Forever 21.
In the end my total costume was around thirty dollars. It was simple items that I added sparkle too, and it was actually pretty comfortable.
