Fashion inspired Halloween costume ideas 2018: DIY Lady Gaga in the red tulle dress

October 17, 2018



On the wave of the movie the Star is born, the next inspiration idea for a Halloween costume is a look by Lady Gaga, 2018 red tulle dress by Christian Siriano.

I chose this look in particular because well Christian Siriano is always inspirational and it’s also pretty easy to recreate something similar at home with little sewing and crafting skills. You’ll need a fitting red dress, about 10-20 yards of red tulle, pins, red thread, a needle and a dress form. The reason why it is better to work directly on the dressform is that you will instantly see the result and will control the draping process easier than if the dress would just lay on the table. Cut the tulles into pieces that are manageable for you to drape, put the dress on the mannequin and start draping the tulle into fluffy dimensional shapes. Pin the draping along the way and when you are satisfied with the result, carefully sew it down with the needle.

Pair it with the famous cat eye sunglasses and black gloves... Voila, your statement Lady Gaga look is ready to turn some heads 😉

Wishing you endless inspiration,
