New Blog Alert: BottleServiceIsForTourists.blogspot.com

So this blog isn’t exactly “new” but it’s new to me.  BottleServiceIsForTourists is a hi-larious blog about the ups and down of Hollywood nightlife.  As a newcomer to LA, reading these posts make me chuckle and yet also sort of guide me on places to be scene and NOT be scene.  So far, I agree with all the advice I’ve read on this blog.  Just sayin…this is my fave article and, for the record, I am not a “weekend warrior.”

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!
