So, I decided with a lack of funds and an excess of materials at home to be a ZOMBIE Lady GaGa

here's my best shuffle, showcasing the clothes, I made the disco bra, clawed up top, fringe (its fake, even though I am blond, I don't have bangs!), and loopscarf, and I purchased the leggings and gloves (although I did alter them to actually FIT, because they were huge and the fingers fit funny). the shoes were already in my closet, I didn't have time to make them into giant lobster feet.




I made the executive decision to wear pants (leggings) because I live in saskatchewan, and I'm not insane or eager to die from frostbite. Although shockingly, we don't currently have snow...but you never know here!

Here are some closeup detail shots of my makeup, sans any spooky contrast. I did it all myself. Its latex, tissue, a strip of spongy padding from a dollarstore bathmat for the teeth (i keep my sewing machines on them so they don't shake the table...I hope this makes sense?) and a wackload of cheap dollarstore makeup, including foundation and several colors of that cheapy cream halloween makeup. I also made the blood, which is food color, cocoa powder, and corn syrup mixed with various amounts of water.

This is awesome.
And good call on the leggings... It was chilly on Halloween!  (Fellow Saskatchewanite here!  Whooo go Sasky!)

Wow!  I totally thought this was not a person, from the thumbnail.  You did a spectacular job with the makeup!  And I love the concept!

AMAZING! I didn't think it was actually a person from the thumbnail, either. Spectacular job with the teeth and makeup and everything!

Wow! This is awesome! Very creative and original. I love the make-up and the fact that you did all of this cheaply.

Go Ghaaa Ghaaa! 

Love it!  How did you keep the teeth on?  they look like they would have been hard to keep in place.
