She refers to them as her ‘little monsters’ and now they are starting to get almost as much press as she does. What are we talking about? HER FANS of course. What did you think? It seems that Gaga’s talents aren’t limited to singing and making us all smile… No! She’s inspiring people to get up and weave their own hair bows before leaving the house and even getting creative with Christmas lights and battery packs, turning each gig into a major dressing-up convention.
Here is our step-by-step guide to transforming yourself into a Gaga-alike for a night out you’ll never want to end.
Chose a stretchy foundation layer. No need to go shopping, if you’ve ever windsurfed or bobsleighed, now’s the time to dust down that all-in-one suit. Maybe add a corset or waspie over the top to give a bit of definition.
Platinum wig plus bow. Even trendy mums and daughters can rock this look, just get hold of a blonde rug. Either look round the markets for a ready-made bow, or simply combine hair extensions with wire to make your own.
Get a bucket of make-up, or raid a nearby child’s room for facepaints and get your face lightening-bolted up. (Top tip – a stencil will help you get this perfect, or draw on in eyeliner then fill in with a solid colour eyeshadow).
You’re almost ready. BUT – you’re not leaving the house without your face-furniture. Think you’re set with face art and trailing Rapunzel tresses? Think again. Either some giant glasses (do you need Mickey ears on those? Yes.) or some kind of netting are going to turn this outfit from ‘amateur’ to ‘hard-core’ in one simple step.
Et voilà! We’d advise you team this look with some equally eccentric friends, and you’re ready to go to the (Monster’s) Ball, Cinders.
