Lady Gaga costumes for kids
Looking for Lady Gaga costumes for kids? While adult Gaga costumes are much easier to find, there are still a few options and budget friendly ways to craft some great Lady Gaga costumes for kids as well. The Gaga fashion craze is a fun, creative way to share art and fashion with your kids. And whether it’s for Halloween or a costume party, your little girl will love dressing and feeling like a pop star. Keep in mind, most retailers tend to call their Gaga outfits “pop star” costumes. So, don’t stop your search if you don’t see Gaga’s name on it. Even so, child pop star costumes are very limited. One great outfit to look for is the “Girls Popstar Costume” on HalloweenCostumes.com. The dress features a one-shoulder halter with a bow at the top. The outfit is a close imitation of Gaga’s famous silver sequin dress. This costume looks great paired with widely available Gaga glasses and silver ballet flats. If the outfit is unavailable, you can easily replace it with a similar dress or tunic. Much of what we see Gaga wear is made up of basic dancewear. While I’m sure you’ll want your daughter to avoid Gaga’s high cut leotards or blue leather swimsuits, basic fashion accessories like leggings and jackets can help to keep your child’s outfit hip and appropriate. You can also construct kids versions of many of her most popular outfits by simply focusing on her accessories. Many adult Gaga accessories fit children as well. There are also several Gaga makeup kits available that help you get started on designing a look.
The most essential part of any Lady Gaga costume is the blonde wig. Most costume retailers offer both a curly blonde wig and a straight blonde wig with bangs for girls and young teens. You can also clip bangs onto a basic blonde wig if a Gaga wig is not available. For a really fun look, you may want to opt for Lady Gaga’s soda can hairdo, as seen in her Telephone video. Pre-curled soda can wigs are available online, and can be a fun way to tell your child about retro beauty. Many major retailers also offer the famous Gaga bow hair clip. The clip is easy to pin, and since Gaga has been known to wear the hair clip with many outfits, it makes a great addition for any ensemble. The bow hair clip adds wonderful detail to the Gaga character, and looks great when paired with her famous lightning bolt face decal or disco mask. Again, most major costume retailers sell a lightning bolt kit that you can apply. But if you prefer face painting, there are several good tutorials on YouTube showing how to create versions of the bolt. Glittery versions of Gaga’s disco mask can also be purchased in stores and online. However, a closer replica of the mask can be easily created by hand and would make a great arts and crafts project for you and your kid. All you’ll need are some mirrored mosaic pieces, a cheap plastic mask, and some hot glue. All of these are available at your local craft store. Bargain versions of Gaga’s diamond globe ring, black lace goggles, and red glittery eye stickers can also be made by hand. You can also find step-by-step tutorials online showing how to make these.
Crafting the right costume with your child can be a fun way to teach them about setting creative goals, working towards them in unique ways, and taking pride in their accomplishments. As for Gaga herself, her influence is a creative and even educational one. My advice is to take the crafty approach to make family time with your kids, as well as a great costume. Whatever you decide on, your “little monster” will look great!
