You can catch Lady Gaga on the red carpet or at an event sporting the cowl hood.

1. Cut the fabric to 45" x 35". 

2. Fold the fabric in half on the 45" side so it is now 22.5"x35"

3. Sew the two 35" sides together.  

4.  Turn it inside out so the seam is on the inside.  The fabric should look like a tube.

Step 3: How to Put Hood On

The fabric is in the shape of a tube so it has two openings.  Place one end of the tube over your head over your head and peek your head out the other end of the tube.  

The fabric will bunch up and drape around your neck.  Pull the edge of the fabric back up over your head so it sits on your forehead.

Grab a picture of Gaga and adjust to make sure it looks right!

Step 4: Personify Lady Gaga

Now pair your hood with a bodysuit or another fabulous outfit and have fun!  

Grab a pair of sunglasses for a dramatic look!!!
*sew, sorry. Silly predictive text...
These photos are fabulous! I don't see so I apologize if this is a silly question. Can this cowl be made to turn a regular shirt into a cowl neck?
What fabric did you use?

Lycra. Its stretchy and easy to sew!
cotton lycra blends will stay on your head better -- pure lycra is slippery.
Thanks!

I made a hood like this for my Gaga costume last year - another helpful thing to do if it's not staying on your head is to lightly stitch a headband underneath - then party on without worrying about it sliding around : )
