Happy Gagaween: Creating a Lady GaGa Halloween Costume

Halloween is a big deal for me, I love dressing up and it's a night to let the 'freak' out.

When I saw Lady GaGa's 'Born This Way' video I knew instantly what my costume was going to be for 2011 - GaGa Skeleton. A perfect blend of scary and chic.

To create this outfit you will need:
  • Black bow tie
  • White shirt
  • Black suit - trousers and jacket
  • Pink wig
  • White and black face paint
  • Black eye liner - don't forget the sharpener
  • A range of make up brushes - including lip liner, thin, thick etc
To help me with the make up I used two tutorials from YouTube as inspiration, both are excellent and really helped me recreate the skeleton make up.

It's easier to paint your face white first then draw out the hollow black details and shade in.

Here are some close up shots of the make up and the costume combined.

Lady GaGa stands for freedom of expresion and being exactly who you are. I absolutely loved dressing up as her for Halloween, it was so liberating and fun, roll on 2012.
