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.

Hello World,

Today I’m sharing my hands-down favorite DIY costume that my mom has worn. Beetlejuice! My mom wore this costume when I was 5 and again last year because it is just that fun.

She wore a grey and white striped suit that she’s had since the 80’s (she would like me to say that she has never worn the pieces together except as a costume, haha), a striped men’s button up, a skinny black tie, and black boots.

She found an umbrella hat and painted black lines on it to make it look more like Beetlejuice’s. (PS that’s a plastic beetle in her mouth)

For her makeup she applied too-light foundation, and hollowed out her eye area with dark eyeshadow. She used green and black eyeliners and tabbed on stubble and bug guts.  She also used the black eyeliner to give herself an exaggerated widow’s peak and harsh wrinkles.

For her hair, she backcombed and hair-sprayed her hair like crazy. Whenever it felt a little flat, she flipped her hair over and added a little more teasing with her fingers throughout the day.

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.

Above are all the articles she wore (minus the white sundress she was still wearing).
