Intro: Lady Gaga Caution Tape Costume
"Hello, hello, baby, you called? I can't hear a thing..."
We're GAGA for Lady Gaga at Instructables. This caution tape costume is for the brave and daring souls....just like Gaga!
Special thanks to Scoochmaroo for photography and costume assistance!
Step 1: Gaining Inspiration
This costume was inspired by one of Lady Gaga's costumes in her Telephone music video.
Step 2: Materials
Step 3: Hair and Makeup
Since I don't have blonde hair I used a long blonde wig that has bangs.
Take all the hair and put it in a simple low bun. Use a few curlers to curl the bangs. The bangs will curl and peak out of the caution tape
Lips: Use dark maroon lipstick. I have thin lips so I had to draw outside the lines a bit.
Eyes: To achieve those dark Gaga eyes, apply eyeliner along your eyelashes on the top and bottom. Then apply black eyeshadow to your eye lid. The eyeshadow should go between your eyelid crease and eyebrow.
Step 4: Wrapping the Tape
Here are some instructions on how I wrapped the tape. You don't have to stick to this precisely, use it has a guide.
Note: As you wrap the caution tape use double sided tape to stick it to your body.
Start at your ankle. Wrap the tape once around your ankle. Wrap the tape up your leg 3 times - on the third wrap it should be going around your hip (first hip).
Bring the tape around back and then between your legs. The tape should be in the front of your body again. Wrap the tape around your other hip (second hip). Cross the tape along your back. This leads into wrapping the breasts.
Wrap Breasts: Wrap the tape around your breasts 2 or 3 times (depending on size).
Next, wrap the piece crossing from under the armpit cross the body and over the other shoulder. Bring the tape down your back and pass the tape in-between your legs.
Vertical Line in Center of Body: The tape is now in front of you. Bring the tape up to cover your crotch and up the center of your body.
Now wrap the tape around your neck a few times. Bring it under your jaw and over the top of your head once and once around your forehead then under your hair bun.
