Fashion Icon Hallween Costumes: Lady Gaga



I've never been a fan of overpriced, pre-packaged halloween costumes-- I tend to go the creative route and go shopping to create DIY costumes. A couple months ago, Audrey told me about the idea of being lady gaga and I LOVED it. All you need is a spandex leotard, some lacy tights, and a wig with blonde bangs. People will be asking you for your autograph all night.. just put on your poker face!

What are your Halloween costume ideas?? I might use yours an in an upcoming post!

xoxo, lauren

P.S. I had my awesome roommate pick a number 1-50 for the winner of the chick downtown contest and she selected #12--- so congrats to one of my favorite lovely bloggers, Cafe Fashionista!

i also thought about going as LG, but decided my costume needed to somehow include pants or bottoms.

My best friend is thinking about going as Dorthy and using her dog as Toto...I thought it would be funny to go as a tornado. I read somewhere about making it out of a grey leo and make a skirt and tie little creatures and trucks and doll furniture on it.

Congratulations to Erika...!

I agree regarding Halloween outfits - so tired of all these Ricky's/Leg Avenue costumes that everyone buys and uses once in their lifetime. I have a "sexy Tinkerbell" costume that I will never wear again, once was more than enough!

Lauren! Your blog is so intense and super cute!! but of course, you are a fashion merchandising major (if I remember correctly)! I had another DIY blog but someone hacked it, changed passwords, and turned it into a hot mess. ugh. so i just recently decided to start a new one.

anyway, LOVE the lady gaga outfit!

haha :) i really was going to be Lady Gaga, but i decided to be a rebel and not do anything halloween related this year. but i definitely love the DIY costumes MUCH better than the pre-packaged ones. plus not many of us want to be sluts haha.

Cafe Fashionista said...

Ah! I die! I die! I die! Thank you so much for choosing me as your winner, Lauren - I'm thrilled!

And Lady Gaga...such a fabulous choice for a Halloween costume. I've been contemplating Mary-Kate Olsen and Edie Sedgwick myself! :)

LML said...

omg that is SUCH a great idea! i was amy winehouse last year, but she is irrelevant now. lady gaga is the way to go!

There are going to be three million Lady Gagas out there. I had my (non-Gaga) costume picked for me when a gorgeous blogger unexpectedly sent me an outfit!

SomeoneAnyone said...

I now its so amazing that she could do that kind of thins with sand! I think its so funny with the LG outfit=) haha

hélène said...

Omg i think that costume is fantastic!!! lol

Last year i dressed as madonna circa 1984 and i must say i killed it!

Ivan McK said...

Lovin' the recipe for the disaster that is Lady GaGa - no one can do it better. The crazy crown thingy wold also be a nice alternative.

Keep up the great work!

Congrats Erika! I love your blog =) Lady Gaga sounds great. I think Mario & Princess as a couples costume could be adorable and easy too =)

Clearly, I am deeply influenced by the Rachel Zoe Project.
