HALLOWEEN DIY: Thierry Mugler Dress





I bet you can't even recognize me in that! Haha. I promise it is me though. I made a DIY Mugler for halloween because I knew that almost everyone is dressing up as gaga for halloween - but nobody was going to spend as much time as I did on their costume.



So to make this dress, here's what you do. First I bought a pleather skirt/dress from American Apparel. Then I cut out SYMMETRIC diamond shapes of cardboard - its really important that they're perfectly symmetric and narrow so that when you put four pieces together you get a lovely crystal or 3-d diamond shape. If you're going to do this - USE A RULER. Play with the sizes so you get a nice variation of crystals.



Next I superglued the four pieces together to make the shape, and I painted them gold - a la Gaga. Now attaching them onto the dress is tricky because I didn't want to straight-up glue them to the fabric - so I hot-glued safety pins onto the shapes and pinned them to my dress.



Now I know it doesn't look exactly like the real thing, but I think it comes close enough and people will most definitely get it.




So my friend forced me to make this really embarrassing music video, but I'm going to pretend that's not me. Yes. That's me singing. Not Lady Gaga.
