I whipped this Homemade Killer Lady Gaga Costume up in an afternoon. I made the diamonds following a youtube video. And when I printed them out, I fit about 3 tiny ones and 2 normal sized ones on an A4 sheet. I used regular paper and then painted the "blood" on with red and brown acrylic paint. I glued them to a tiny card board strip and pinned it to my hair with bobby pins. I did have a giant diamond (full A4 size) taped to a ring across my hand but it fell off before I even left the house!
My hair is naturally blonde and in that style (I suggest a wig if you're a brunette). For makeup I used a shade or 2 lighter than my normal skin tone all over the lid, right up to the brow and then added in a crease line just under the brow bone with a milky tea sort of colour. Then tons of eyeliner! draw the flicks from the corner towards your brow. Fake lashes look good but I didn't wear them because they got in the way of the glasses.
I used regular 3D glasses from the cinema and PVA glue for the glasses. Looking back the silver side (using sequins already on a thread) worked better. As I glued I tried to avoid the main eye area and kept putting them on to check.
The dress is a plain pencil skirt dress that cost around a tenner, the jacket was an absolute bargain at 3.25 from a charity shop. I wore plain black heels but if you wanted to be more authentic you could easily embellish them with more sequins or spikes, get creative!
I'm a big Lady Gaga Fan and I have followed her fashions and looks for quite some time. With Lady Gaga there are so many different looks to choose from! I was browsing through some of her more photographed looks and came up with this Lady Gaga Costume. She has done several variations on this theme and I decided to go with this.
First I took a black spandex off the shoulder dress that I got online for about $14 and went from there. I added the "origami" details using patterns of 3d geometric shapes that I found on the internet. After that I cut them out of brown paper bags: assembled, glued and stapled them together, and then I spray painted them with gold acrylic craft paint.
A long blonde wig (which I already had in my enormous Halloween wig collection!) topped it off and more origami was used in creating the headpiece, which was held in place with bobby pins. Big black sunglasses from the 99 Cent Store, some short studded black gloves, which I purchased at a Halloween shop for a few dollars, and my bronze shimmery ballroom dancing shoes completed the look.
I made the headpiece, mask and shoulders. The headpiece is wide sheer ribbon looped and sewn / hot glued onto felt covered cardboard, then bobby pinned into the hair. The mask is based on old sunglasses frames, with fake flower pieces glued to a standard black mask cut to size and glued to the frames.
The shoulders are just card stock curved and folded to fit. I bought the wig from a Halloween store but everything else I just found as pieces for cheap online or on eBay.
