I wanted to do something very original for Halloween this year, and when Lady Gaga wore the meat dress to the VMA’s this year, I thought it was the perfect costume idea.

The DIY Lady Gaga meat dress Halloween costume took me about 3 weeks to finish, working about 1 to 2 hours on it each night. I used red foam to make the meat and then hot glued all the foam to the dress. I am an expert on making fake meat. I even made my shoes out of the red foam and colored my wig with a blue marker. I had a lot of great feedback from my costume and it was a lot of fun to make!
