DIY Lady Gaga Halloween Costume Ideas

Fantastic easy to make Lady Gaga dress-up Halloween costume ideas. If you want to dress up as Lady Gaga, or are one of her dedicated little Monsters, then this halloween costume is just what you are looking looking for. With our easy homemade Lady Gaga costume ideas. Not only is this Instantly recongizable Lady Gaga costume easy to make but this is a fabulous halloween costume idea which can be tailored for adults teenagers and kids alike.

Lady Gaga not only continues to dominate the music charts, but also her fashion, her style being copied from the catwalk to every day wear (well some of it)

So when my daughter asked if she could dress up as Lady Gaga for Halloween, I knew I had a challenge on my hands. Renowned and respected in the Fashion Industry for her intricate and detailed designs. However this turned out to be a lot of fun, she won the competition for best halloween costume, and it has been borrowed more times than I can remember, it is already booked for this year halloween party by my Niece who is the Ultimate 'lil monster.

We have always made out own halloween costumes, in fact we also made a homemade Katy Perry costume this year

A Homemade Lady Gaga Costume

.....was it going to be impossible?

We had to find inspiration from somewhere.

So we found a few photos of Lady Gaga from her video Poker Face, and browsing the net, we printed the ones that that my daughter liked and decided to draw out our own version, now I am no artisit however I could imagine the basics.

We had to think about what we needed,

BIG shoulders body suit, lots of beading, a blonde wig with her signature ligthning streak on her face. Sounds simple...

I don't own a sewing machine, which would have halved the time I spent handsewing this creation.

By handsewing the beading, catching at certain points with a couple of stitches, however for the back it was individual beads sewn on!

The lightning stripes at the back were cut out from the excess of the material from the bag.

Do you like making your own costumes - ....oor is it better left to the professionals

How I got Lady Gagas huge Shoulder Pads look

Lady Gaga loves huge shoulders, and is a recognisable look.

I found a square Silver Shopping bag, and thought this was fabulous and just what we needed. I turned it upside down, and cut a slit up the front and back, cutting toward shoulder to shoulder making space for her head to go through.

I cut it diagonaly from side of the bag (sleeve to neck opening) at each side, (leave enough of the side of the bag to be tied around your arms, and same at the back.

This will sit over your shoulders and give a very square look, if the shoulders need

Create huge Shoulder pads like Lady Gaga - (check your size from shoulder to shoulder!)

this is exactly how I made the jacket and shoulder pads, I cut straight up the front and made space for her head neck, but the Bag shape was perfect for attatching glittery jewels and so Lady gaga

Gagas costumes always have

Body suit & leggings

As my daughter was only 10, I decided to use a black t-shirt and leggings and a pair of sparkly leggings underneath I cut a cheap black pair of leggings to make shorts, to create the illusion of a body suit, making going to the loo easier

I used the leftovers from the bag to make lightning designs and hand sew onto the t-shirt, I also used old christmas beads to sew Lady Gaga onto the back of the costume.

Lady Gaga Sequins and Sparkling beads - sparkle just like the lady herself!

We actually raided the christmas Decorations bag! and found strings of sparkly beads we never used!

The Skirt

We used an old net skirt, and to get it to stick out we threaded a coat hanger through the hem, you could use a Tu-Tu. this would probably be a lot more comfy, especially for younger children.

My daughter loved the whole, 'excuse me, you need to move so I can get my skirt through' experience.

Lady gaga Net Skirts - a net skirt is a must

Every child loves a net skirt so pop it over leggings and they are fit to party just like the lady herself

Layer just like Lady Gaga - Black t-shirts & Sparkly Black Leggings

As you can see I just used a cheap black t-shirt and sparkly leggings

How to create Lady Gagas Make up - Bigger the better

The more the better, Big eyes, with lots of eye liner, flicked out like cats eyes. Huge false eylashes, yep you can go all out here.

Lady Gagas Shoes - Big huge platforms.....

Much as my daughter wanted a pair of huge platform shoes there was no way she was getting a pair so we settled on a pair of black pumps and brightly colored laces.

Lady Gaga Sunglasses - dress up sunnies

To hide behind and from the snapping and flashing of the paparapzi

Lady gaga Hair & Wigs

The only thing I could not make

Lady Gaga has lots of hairstyles, and there no disappointment in choice. we were fortunate a friend of mine is in pantomime and had a blonde wig fit for the purpose. ButI love these wigs all styled just like Gaga herslef

      "My daughter loved the whole, 'excuse me, you need to move so I can get my skirt through' experience." LOL, that's hilarious! You have some great ideas here for making your own Lady Gaga costume.

      You know it may sound silly since I'm a 35 year old stay at home mommy that's knee deep in toddlers, but I actually like Lady Gaga's music.

      Great ideas for making your own Lady Gaga costume. I think it is much better for kids to be involved in the costume making process. Helps them appreciate what goes into making them even more.

      If you want a unique twist on a Gaga outfit for a Halloween costume then why want make your outfit into zombie Gaga or vampire Gaga by adding accessories such as blood, make-up and torn clothes. Should really stand out at Halloween!
