Ten Lady Gaga Costumes to Make

From the hair bow to the bubble dress.


Playing Lady Gaga is easy because she doesn't have a single signature look, but many. In fact, there are so many famous Lady Gaga outfits that you could throw a Gaga party, inviting all the guests to come wearing a memorable Gaga style. Just promise to send me pics.

So, when someone tells Lady Gaga to put her hair up in a bow, this is inevitably what happens. It is a great look for your Gaga costume, because a hair 'bow' is instantly recognizable as a Gaga creation. You can pair this hair with any outfit and pass as Gaga.

This is a much more simple Gaga costume, but it still reflects her style through the sharp lines of the close-cropped hair and towering wedge shoes.

5. Classic Lady Gaga Costume

Here, Gaga is in a mask, headdress, large underpants, and a skin-colored bodysuit with long sleeves and leggings tucked into gloves and boots respectively. The lace and leather are working overtime here to create a sexy look, while in reality, her body is covered.

Buying any leotard and bedazzling it will pass with flying colors as a Gaga costume, so don't worry about the details. It's all about having fun.
