Halloween 2009: Lady Gaga

So I know it’s a little obvious but I totally want to be Lady Gaga for Halloween this year.  Last year, I was Eve (as in Adam and) and part of me also wants to use my Eve costume again since I made it, and it is totally awesome, AND no one in LA has seen it yet.  However, this is my first Halloween in a new city…and a new city that apparently may give NYC a run for it’s money when it comes to crazy costumes (enter West Hollywood).  Anyway, I already ordered a platinum blonde hair bow on Etsy so now all I need is some outfit inspriation.  It’s a little tough with Lady Gaga because I really could just wear anything short and loud, no?  Here’s what I’m thinking, after watching four Lady Gaga videos on MTV.com:

Hair bow, check.  Big black sunglasses, check.  I’m needing black fingerless leather/pleather gloves and might possibly do some kind of lightening bolt on my face.  My first thought for makeup is undoubtably Illamasqua.  If you haven’t already heard of the line, it screams drama and Lady Gaga.  Any ideas for my actual outfit?  Animal print?  Leather?  Fishnets?  I need some ideas!

Jem: Truly Outrageous (Halloween Costume)

So I’m kind of in love with this Jem costume idea I saw on BellaSugar.com. I mean, who didn’t think Jem was “truly outrageous” when they were growing up in the 80s? Anyway, you can easily be Jem for Halloween with the right pink wig and pink face makeup. The video on BellaSugar is kind of unnecessarily long (and super cheesy) but it has a few good tips for how to do the pink stars around your eyes! AND I even found a great Jem outfit…oh and they have one of the Misfit outfits too! UGH, memories…
