Regardless of whether you need a Lady Gaga costume for the club, a costume ball, or special event, there are some simple ways to get the Gaga look. Gaga's presence both on and off the stage are fierce and a great inspiration to fashion designers and would-be divas alike. Last season, the television show Glee even devoted an entire episode to Gaga and her famous fashions and music.
Gaga initially came to fame after the release of her debut album "The Fame" in 2008, which was successful with the vastly popular "Just Dance" and "Poker Face" singles. Her second release, The Fame Monster, in 2009 was similarly successful and had two chart-topping singles, "Telephone" (with Beyonce), and "Bad Romance." Gaga's next album, Born This Way, is planned for release in late May 2011. The first single from the album, "Born This Way," has reached number 1 on charts worldwide and has the distinction of being the fastest-selling single ever on iTunes, after selling 1 million copies in just five days.
More than just record breaking music, Lady Gaga, is known for her often outrageous outfits, which is a large part of what makes Lady Gaga Halloween Costumes and club-going outfits so much fun. Which Lady Gaga look are you into? When it comes to Lady Gaga costume ideas, think big, think glam, think shocking, and always, think fun. In short, think Gaga.
When it comes to hair, Gaga is all about wigs - usually blonde and big or blonde and long. Getting the Gaga hair is often as simple as getting a wig, (unless you already have long, blonde locks of your own, in which case, bravo!) She is also known for her "hair bow," (a bow of hair/wig on top of her head). Since a hair bow is fairly difficult to form from your own hair, there are a variety of hair bows offered online. Otherwise, you can also use hair extensions or inserts to create your own hair bow.
For a true Gaga look, go with big eyes, and long lashes. Fake eyelashes are usually a must. For the lips, Lady Gaga generally goes with a barely there nude or pink color, although she occasionally goes with black or a striking red as well. Along with the focus on the eyes, you can also incorporate her trademark lightning bolt on across one of your eyes either by using face paint or creating a sticker and then applying it to your face.

She was born in 1986 in New York city. She had been taking piano lessons from the age of 4. At age 11 she was set to join the Julliard school in Manhattan, but instead attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart, a private Roman Catholic school. She went on to write her first piano ballad at 13 and began performing at open mic nights at age 14. At 17 she gained early admission to New York University's Tisch school of the Arts. While there she studied music and improved her songwriting skills.
James Phillips a music director and one of her early mentors noticed her in the fifth grade as a talented singer. As the years progressed he continued to be her mentor and teach her in musical performances and jazz at Regis High School in New York
When she was 17 another teacher Pam Philips had a vocal technique class that she gave at NYU titled the CAP 21 program and said that her student was hitting high notes as a soprano with an impressive vocal range.
