Half-Assed Halloween Costume: Lady Gaga

Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt this unfortunate series of Catastrophic Events to bring you photos of the Halloween costume I was banging on about on Black Friday, shortly before the phone call from Heart Internet saying, “Oh, hai, we just deleted your business. Good luck sorting THAT out!”

So, as I mentioned, we’d been invited to a Halloween party on Saturday night, and despite the fact that we’d only had a few hours of restless, tortured sleep on Friday (I don’t know what Terry dreamt about, but I dreamt about… buying foundation. Huh.), we decided we’d still go. By Saturday evening we’d managed to get all of Terry’s clients’ websites back online, and were convinced we had copies of the missing content from ours, so even although we knew we still had many, many hours of work ahead of us, we thought it might be a good idea to have a break from all of the MEGA! STRESS! and spend some time with people who WOULDN’T scare the living daylights out of us both. Although, if someone had turned up dressed as a Heart Internet server or employee, that might have done the trick.

Just a few short hours after the Catastrophic Event, then, we found ourselves heading out dressed as…

Lady Gaga and the Terminator!

Now, this lady gaga halloween costume didn’t work out quite the way I’d intended it to. The plan had been for me to go shopping on Saturday afternoon to pick up the extra bits and pieces I’d need for a full-on Lady Gaga look, but, of course, after Black Friday my heart wasn’t really in it, so it all ended up being a bit last minute.

Still, we had a fun night, and it was great to be able to just relax and not think about everything that was going on with the websites.  And I really liked my false eyelashes, although not enough to want to advertise them for free on eBay, so please don’t take that as an invitation to steal my photos:

Terry doesn’t want to model cybernetic eyes, either…

    Only you have a good enough figure to get away with a Lady Gaga costume! I miss Terry's Wino look, it must be said, but he looks great this year too (a little like a Terminator version of Neil Gaiman!).

    Nicely done and good to see you not letting Heart get you down – despite their best efforts!

      Haha, yeah, they tried their best, but luckily our friends managed to cheer us up and take our minds off it, so I'm glad we decided to still go!

    You look fantastic! LOVE the wig! (Save that one for our photoshoot… :)

    Also: I WISH I could pull off shiny leggings like you! Fabulous! :)

      Confession: I really quite like the shiny leggings. I wish I had somewhere else to wear them other than on Halloween! Will definitely keep hold of the wig for photo shoot. And for when I decide to have "blonde day".

    Did you get Terry to prop you up as you made your entrance, true Lady Gaga style? (I'm assuming the cup and saucer were among the extra items you were planning to get that afternoon…)

      Oh, I had a cup and saucer! All night people kept coming up to me and saying "Are you drinking… tea?" But no, it was full of WINE.

    You need less clothes for a real authentic lady gaga look :P. You're almost unrecognisable with the blonde wig! And I love the false eyelashes.

      I had to make sure I didn't actually scare people/get arrested! I'm going to keep the wig for times when I need a disguise :)

      Couldn't have recognized you if I hadn't known, either. And love the costume-hilarious!

    On the plus side you both look fantastic! Those eyelashes are brilliant – are they the illamasqua ones?

      Amber

      No, they're just Eyelure ones – last minute purchase!

    Super cool fancy dress :) Both of you! Are those special sunglasses or is that DIY? And about the wig, is the hair bow (literally!!) attached to it or is it separable?

      It's a sepparate bow – I was tempted to buy one in my own hair colour and wear it all the time, but Terry talked me out of it :)

    Fantabulous costumes both! So glad you still had fine pics of that to put up and cheer yourselves up with in time – and so brave to be able to dress up at all after The Calamities. On which, drat the dastards. Sounds from your previous post like they were Twittering the whole time. Or maybe planning *their* Hallowe’en costumes. Sympathies as TELUS here in Canada are being crap with us right now (though we don’t have a business riding on it, just things like contact with family back in the UK).
    On Lady Gaga: awesome shiny leggings, but is this a public admission that you have no granny knickers? The shame! The horror!! Mind you, I might have been tempted to send them to my internet provider in your circumstances. Maybe dropped, from a hot-air balloon manned by the Terminator.

    That's the best Lady Gaga costume I've seen – there were quite a few out in Seattle but they were all just a little off the mark.

    If you should ever get a chance, it would be wonderful if you schooled us false eyelash challenged folks on how to properly apply falsh eyelashes. Yours look perfect! I often need eyelash enhancement and can never get them to work properly! (Oh, by the way: I currently have red weals!)
