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!
