So I've kind of already celebrated Halloween; my sorority had a swap last night and we all got to dress up and it was super fun. After quite a few days of debating between Justin Bieber and Columbia, I decided I would go as Columbia. I've wanted to do a Lady Gaga costume forever but knew I could never pull it off; that's where my friend, Beth, comes in. She asked me to make her costume, too, so she became my Barbie doll (or my Rocky, if we want to go with a theme) and let me dress her in the most rockin' Gaga costume I could produce with the time and skills at hand. And so this was born:

The Gaga costume was essentially spray painted paper shapes hot glued to a black tank top and worn with a black skirt that I made. I also managed to give her the Gaga hair bow. For my costume, I bought a cropped jacket at a thrift store for $5 then took it in, added coattails, then covered the whole thing, and my hat, in gold sequin fabric. The tank top was purchased for $3 and covered in glitter (which is still in my bra, in case you're wondering). I made the skirt and attached ribbons and made the bowtie (it's stuffed with cotton balls  Smiley ). Purchased, non-altered items include the shoes, blue socks, and fishnet tights. Here's the inspiration for both outfits:

So many fabrics, so little time . . .

 Grin Totally awesome!!!  I love Rocky Horror and this is a great interpretation of Columbia.
