Easy Halloween Costume: Lady Gaga

Easy Halloween Costume: Lady Gaga
Easy Halloween Costume: Lady Gaga by lisalovesculture featuring fishnet stockings

When I saw Lady Gaga in concert, she wore a 'base' costume consisting of bra, panties, fishnets and high heeled booties.

This is a great costume base - you can add accessories or layers depending on what you have and it will still be Gaga-esque. I'm showing this with a one piece body but for those of you that are more daring (and live in warmer climates!), you can definitely try the bra and panties.

Suggestions: fishnet shirt, big sunglasses, pop cans in hair, temporary tattoos, bold make-up.

It's 2 weeks to Halloween and I'm sure some of you are scrambling for costumes.

Here's an easy one. The sadly departed TV series Dollhouse featured 'actives'; blank dolls who were programmed with personalities and identities for the highest bidder.

During their down time, the actives wore simple, plain yoga-type clothing in calm colours. The key to this costume is your manner. Act slightly puzzled at complicated questions. Revert to a childlike innocence.

Key phrases: "Did I fall asleep?"
"I always try to do my best"

Elvis dress

A quick outfit post from last week when I went to get my hair done.

I added my new snakeskin corset belt to my striped dress (my boss said I reminded her of Jailhouse Rock in this dress). I was pleased with the results! Rust coloured tights finish the whole thing off and add a nice autumn pop.

Dress and corset belt: Torrid
Tights: We Love Colors

Here is my new hair, in case you were interested. I love the way it curls!
