Erika Brooks Adickman | October 12, 2010 - 10:11 am

Pop stars and outrageous outfits go hand in hand, which makes it oh-so easy to dress up as one for Halloween. But although the costume choices might be perfect for your night of spooky partying, there’s just too many to choose from! That’s why we’ve decided to help all of you out and handpick the most iconic ensembles from the last year of pop and give you some tips on how to recreate them. Just save us a fun-size Snickers bar from your trick-or-treat bag as thanks.

Sure, Lady Gaga already has a line of official Halloween costumes on the market. But why buy when you can make your own? Today, we’ll walk you through three different ways to be the Fame Monster of your Halloween party — scroll through our Lady Gaga Costume Guide below:

“Alejandro” Gaga


What you’ll need:

  • two toy guns (preferably not BB guns—you’ll shoot your eye out!)
  • a strong, black bra you won’t mind destroying
  • a nude body suit and a black thong (unless you’re genetically gifted like Gaga, in which case go au naturale)
  • proper transportation for the evening — remember, there’s no way those guns are fitting behind a steering wheel or in the back seat of your friend’s Mini Cooper

(Looking for a different kind of ammo bra? Try our Katy Perry Halloween Costume Guide for some whip cream-flavored weapons.)

Meat Dress Gaga

What you’ll need:

  • a trip to the butcher’s
  • rope or string
  • a headband to attach your “meat hat”
  • avoidance of any party where PETA members or large dogs might be present
  • Purell hand sanitizer—you don’t want to get E. Coli!

Lollapalooza Gaga


What you’ll need:

  • a black mesh top and fishnets
  • pasties and nude “boy shorts” underwear
  • an artistic friend to perfectly recreate Gaga’s tattoos—don’t forget her new unicorn thigh tat!
  • some liquid courage before hitting the town (we suggest Mountain Dew)

Voila! You’re Lady Gaga! Now, go strut your poker face and just dance the night away.
