DIY Halloween Costume – Lady Gaga

DSC_00572

Hello World,

Long time no see! Sorry I haven’t blogged in so long. I just got so busy with work and life in general, but enough excuses because I’m back now! And I have some fun costumes and DIY projects lined up for you!

Today I’m sharing another one of my mom’s past Halloween costumes- Lady Gaga! This costume is so simple and is a great last minute costume:

This costume was inspired by Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” music video. She wore a blonde wig, over sized sunglasses, a black leather skirt, and a black leather coat. (The leather coat was white originally, but my mom made is black with leather dye).

She made her crown with black poster board and then bobbypinned it to her wig. To finish off her look she did a nude lip.

DIY Halloween Costume #6 - Angel

Hello World,

One year for Halloween, my mom dressed up as an angel. But instead of just wearing a white gown, she layered multiple white items of various lengths and textures. She wore this when she took my little sisters trick or treating, so she wore an additional white sweater underneath for warmth.

She layered a white sundress over a polka dot white slip, which she wore over a floor length satin nightgown. Over this she wore two vintage robes and a feather boa. To make her outfit angelic, she wore feather wings and a halo headband.

Layering the short sleeve robes added volume to her shoulders.

DIY Cut-Off Tank

Hello World,

I recently went to Kohl’s and saw some cut-off tanks with weaved armholes for $20+. Instead of buying one, I decided to reconstruct a tee I never wear anymore. This project is a quick way to give an old shirt new life, and it doesn’t require any sewing! Check out the simple tutorial:

DIY Cut-Off Tank

1. Gather your supplies: a t-shirt, scissors, and t-shirt yarn or scrap jersey cut into two long, stretched strips.

2. Cut the sleeves off of your shirt. For an exaggerated armhole, cut more of the shirt away.

3. Cut small, equally-spaced slices along the raw edge of each armhole, at least 0.25″ away from the edge.

4. Starting at the bottom of your arm hole, feed your t-shirt yarn each slice until you reach your starting point. Tie a knot with the other tail end, tails aiming towards the inside of your shirt.

5. Repeat with the other armhole and tada!

Pair it with your favorite bandeau, wear it as a work-out tank, or whatever floats your boat! Want to spruce it up even more? Customize it with a freezer-paper stencil or paint it with water-downed bleach.

Happy crafting!
