How I made a replica of the infamous meat dress
A nice lady named Sophia posted an alchemy request on Etsy for a halloween costume of a replica of Lady Gaga's meat dress that she wore to the VMAs and on the Ellen Show. I made a bid and was chosen to do the project.
First, I got a bunch of pix of different sides of the dress on line so that I could copy the style of the dress and the way the "meat slabs" hung. I started out with a tub dress, then added the layers and halter portion of the dress, pinning them in place first.
My version of the dress is completely made out of recycled red
t-shirts! Some I had and some I got at a thrift store. The hat is
t-shirt material hot-glued onto a tin foil form. I painted the "fat" with cream colored fabric paint. Sophia loved it and sent me this pix of her trying it on with her Lady Gaga wig.
Great idea for an original Halloween costume, dontcha think?! :-D
