Lady Gaga

Filed under: miscellaneous — Kristin @ 8:56 pm

I was Lady Gaga for Halloween this year and I decided to match a black lace outfit she wore. I made the mask, hat and pointed shoulders, and collected all the other pieces from ebay (lace top, lace stockings, nude bodysuit, leather half gloves). The mask is made from black flowers bought at Michael’s, pulled apart and hot glued to a plastic mask cut to shape, which was then hot glued to an old pair of sunglasses frames. The hat was made by covering a circle of cardboard with felt and sewing bigs loops of wire-lined sheer ribbon to the top. The pointed shoulders were just pieces of card stock shaped to get the right look.
