Ive become a little inspired by lady gaga, and all of her AMAZING clothes just make me want to create!

This is a bra I saw in her Just Dance video, and I fell in love with it!

so here is its, the GAGA BRA! or as my friends have named it: disco boobs!

Just to answer a few questions, here are some details on how it was made/material costs
- I got the bra on sale for $10
- I bought 2 disco balls from the dollar store for $2 (but only used one.. im a 36 C, so anyone bigger then that would need more because i used the wholeeee thing.)
- I used super glue to attach them to the bra, and I used 4 tubes, for $4

The total cost was $16 dollars!  and the super glue works really great! I didn't put any squares under the side arms because i had a feeling that would really start to hurt. Its actually pretty comfortable the way it is, but the bra did become a lot heavier so straps, or a very well fitting strapless bra is key!

some in the making shots

with a shirt

Im going to get a better shirt to wear with it, and I will post the action shots then, I just got so excited to share this!  Hope you enjoy it too Smiley

EDIT, here it is in action:


ps here is the original gaga version:

That is so awesome! Great job! I love Gaga's fashion sense and I might have to replicate that at some point.

Was it hard to get the plates/tiles off? And did you use more than one disco ball?

Awesome replica!
I had a "disco bra" very much like that about...ohhh ouch! 10 years ago now!
It had a less dangerous plastic type of mirror on it.
That was a fun bra.  Grin

THIS ROCKS!!! Did you you use just regular super glue? I would love to know how that holds up in the pit! (Providing you are going in the pit at said concert  Cheesy)
