Lady Gaga's outfits are as talked about as her music.  The body suit is the basic element to many of her costumes.  The best part is it's super easy to make your own body suit!

This Halloween, instead of purchasing a bodysuit for $50 make one for less than $10.

Use your body suit with a cowl hood or shoulder sculpture to get the completed Lady Gaga look.

You can see that the bodysuit is the base of many of Lady Gaga's costumes.

Step 2: Materials

Picture of Materials
2 yds Fabric - I used lycra.  Stick with stretchy fabrics.
Sewing Machine
Scissors
Pattern Paper - you can use any type of paper for this, newspaper, packaging paper.....
Pins

Step 3: Making the Pattern

Picture of Making the Pattern
I used a one piece bathing suit to make the pattern for the body suits.  You could also use a tank top and a pair of underwear.  

Lay the bathing suit flat on the pattern paper.  Pin the suit to the paper and trace it.  Make sure the tracing is symmetric.  

Decide where you want the neck line to fall and measure on your body from that spot to your crotch.  Make sure this matches the pattern.  Take into account a small amount of stretching in the vertical direction will occur when you put on the bodysuit.

Step 4: Altering the Pattern

Lady Gaga has a variety of bodysuit styles.  If you want to make a one shoulder or strapless bodysuit start by making the basic two shoulder bodysuit pattern and adjust from there.
