Lady Gaga Costume Wigs

Pop megastar Lady Gaga is well known for her outrageous costumes which includes the regular use of wigs. I’ve compiled a number of Lady Gaga costume wigs for you to choose from if you want to copy her Gagalicious look for a night out or even a fancy dress event.

Some of Lady Gaga’s wigs have become quite iconic within pop culture history – who can forget the hair bow or the soda can hair for example? Other Lady Gaga wigs just helped her to create a particular look when worn with her different outfits.

Lady Gaga’s Long Blonde Wig with Bangs

Lady Gaga Blonde Wigs

Lady Gaga Straight Hair Wig With Bangs,Blonde,One Size

Lady Gaga’s first hit was Just Dance and her costumes for this single’s videos weren’t nearly as outrageous as what were to come……..she had, however, begun wearing a wig.
Lady Gaga’s long, straight blonde hair with bangs was courtesy of a wig like the one on offer here that is part of her official costume range.
She often accompanied this wig with a blue lightning bolt on her face and when she performed the song live she was often seen with a Lady Gaga style hood over the hair.

She also seemed to like wearing her long blonde wig in conjunction with a more famous hair piece of hers……the hair bow!

The next hair variation that Lady Gaga was seen sporting came about around the same time and is the hair bow. Now there are various ways of achieving this – the wig, the bow itself or even creating the look with your own hair (if you have long hair that is).
I think buying the hair bow is the easiest solution and you can then attach it to the long straight blonde wig with bangs that we featured first or with a short blonde bob.
Now most people are aware of Lady Gaga’s hair bow as being part of her long, blonde look as she used it several times (especially in her various origami prom dresses). However she has been photographed in a short blonde bob wig with the hair bow as well.

Lady Gaga’s Purple Wigs

Many of Lady Gaga’s best looks come when she does photo shoots and I loved the image of her as a lilac bunny that appeared on the cover of Spanish magazine Neo2, unfortunately I can’t find a copyright free image to show you here so if you want to see the look she created you’ll have to click on – Lady Gaga’s Lilac Bunny Look.
In the same year (2009) she also treated her British fans to the first peep at her long purple wig.

This was around the same time that she started carrying a china tea cup around with her – gotta love her whimsy!

Lady Gaga’s Official Wigs

Lady Gaga Soda Can Wig

After the success of her Telephone video Lady Gaga released some official costumes along with some wigs – two of which had already been featured in her Telephone Video like this one here.
How to create the soda can hair do was posted to Youtube in record time after the Telephone video was released!

This is one of the fun things about Lady Gaga’s ‘look’ people are very quick to work out how to emulate the Mother Monster and share their thoughts with other fans.

Lady Gaga Two Tone Wig,Blonde,One Size

This next wig from the Telephone video wasn’t as easy to emulate however.
This two tone wig was worn with her USA outfit and quickly became one of the fastest selling Halloween wigs for that year.

This was probably because people liked the idea that the costume made Lady Gaga seem almost like a superhero – Lady USA, very patriotic.

 

Lady Gaga Curly Hair Wig With Pink Streak,Blonde,One Size

The next official Lady Gaga wig was based on one that she wore to the VMAs, most memorable for being covered in blood she was sporting this cute wig as well!
I must admit I do like the curls and the pink streak in this wig, it creates a much softer look for the Mother Monster.

Long White & Aqua Wig

Lady Gaga’s 2010 VMA Wig

Do you remember Lady Gaga’s infamous meat dress? Well it’s hard to remember how she wore her hair as all the focus was on the meat at the 2010 VMA awards, but she actually introduced a white wig to us at the same time.-

Lady Gaga 2010 Video Music Awards Adult Wig

This is the wig in question, minus the meat headdress that Lady Gaga donned on the night she introduced this style to us.

The patches of aqua (or turquoise blue) on the long white wig gives a whimsical touch to Mother Monster’s hair.

Freddy Krueger Halloween Costumes

This Halloween I’m Going to Be……Freddy Krueger!

Freddy Krueger CostumeTo me Halloween is all about scary costumes and things that go bump in the night and the scariest movie character that I can think of is Freddy Krueger.   And so, let me introduce you to some Freddy Krueger Halloween Costumes.….

I’m not sure why I’m so scared of the Nightmare on Elm Street villain, maybe because I watched Freddy Krueger on screen at an impressionable age!

To be honest I think I can trace a caffeine addiction straight back to this movie (even with the few people I know there’s probably enough of us addicted to caffeine to launch a class action suit thinking about it!) as I drank cup after cup of coffee to try and stop myself sleeping for weeks. Somehow I still fell asleep and yet, thankfully, I also woke up!

Freddy Krueger’s Gloves

The most distinctive part of the Freddy Krueger costume is the glove…..a glove that features metal blades in order to slash his victims….

Where Did Freddy Krueger Come From?

Freddy Krueger made his debut onto movie screens in 1984 straight from the mind of Wes Craven. Freddy Krueger was a child murderer who was killed by vigilantes and finds a way to come back………through dreams.

He is there to exact revenge by killing the children of the mob that caused his death. Someone being killed while they sleep? You can imagine why after watching this millions of people worldwide had problems dozing off at night!

Adult Freddy Krueger Costume

Freddy Krueger was recognisable by his burnt face (he was killed in a fire), his glove, his fedora hat and his red and green striped sweater.

The costume opposite contains the sweater and mask which means all you need to add is his glove, fedora and a pair of black trousers and shoes and you’re ready to be the 80s infamous bogeyman.

If you already have a fedora hat in your wardrobe then feel free to use it, otherwise you could get the costume hat featured below. This hat is brown, but to be perfectly honest if I saw someone with a black fedora then I wouldn’t realize that the color wasn’t the same as in the movie – would you?

Mrs Freddy Krueger?!

Miss Krueger Costume

Now you can also get a Freddy Krueger costume for women which they’ve tried to make a sexy Freddy Krueger costume, but personally I can’t think of the words ‘sexy Halloween costume’ and ‘Freddy Krueger costume’ in the same sentence – if you can though then you might like the costume opposite.

The costume includes the dress (based on the infamous sweater), fedora hat and the glove, all you need to add is a pair of leggings or fishnet tights (depending on the look you prefer) and a pair of shoes.

You could choose to don a Freddy Krueger mask if you wanted to as well.

Freddy Krueger Child’s Costume

You can even buy Freddy Krueger in a child’s costume although personally I wouldn’t be telling my daughter about Freddy Krueger. I was much older than she was when he first terrified the life out of me (not literally, but you know what I mean).

Child’s Freddy Krueger Shirt & Mask

This costume includes the shirt (sweater) and mask so you’d need to add a fedora and glove to complete the costume. You used to be able to buy a complete child’s costume, but this is the most complete I can find at this time.

Personally, if I were going to encourage a child to dress up as Freddy, I would also have a look on ebay and see if you could find a more ‘complete’ costume rather than having to buy individual bits, although not having the glove might be a great idea depending on your child!

Freddy Krueger Pet Costume

I was blown away when I saw you can even get a Freddy costume for your pet, I really love this idea and think my American Staffy would look awesome as Freddy!

1920s Style Flapper Costumes

Experience the roaring 20s by dressing up as a flapper this Halloween

1920s Silver FlapperThe 1920’s was an iconic time in America. The introduction of the 1920’s flapper was a turning point in the era of free speech and was a time of true expression for women. These women have been remembered throughout the following decades and we still have a soft place in our hearts for them today. You too can have the feeling of their freedom by becoming one…even if it’s only for one night…Halloween.

In a hurry?  Head straight to deals on 1920s Style Flapper Costumes.

Below you will find some of the most popular and the newest 1920’s flapper Halloween costumes on the market. They are as diverse as the personalities of the women who originally wore them. So take your pick and have a Happy Halloween.

Don’t the people in these photos look like they’re having fun? Whenever I see images of the roaring 20s I always imagine that it would be fun (of course only for people with a little money, but in my imagination that’s me!) – I would love to drive fast in a convertible, drink champagne out of champagne saucers (forget about flutes) and wear some of the gorgeous flapper dresses – with beads of course!

I don’t have a time machine to go back and see if it really is fun, but I do have the resources on this page for us all to dress up as flappers and then the onus of having fun is all on you!

1920s Flapper Costumes in Black

Flappers wore lots of different colors from silver to black, red to white and much more so let’s look at some of the black Flapper costumes that you can buy –

Fabulous Flapper Women’s Premier Costume

This is an absolutely gorgeous Flapper costume that includes a fabulous roaring twenties inspired dress and a black feather headband that features a red stone in the center.

You can see just by looking at the picture how gorgeous this dress looks, but when you’re doing the Charleston…….well the lower part of the dress is basically long, black tassels and the way they move as you’re dancing the night away emphasizes the word sexy!

I would definitely invest in a black boa and some long beads to wear with this dress and a long cigarette holder would look great as you’re sipping on Champagne cocktails between dancing the night away!

If that costume didn’t take your fancy then check out these other black Flapper dresses

Roaring 20’s Flapper Costume

This flapper dress is not only black, but it’s sequined which means that the dress will actually appear to shimmer as you dance and the tasseled skirt of the dress will flare out beautifully – definitely a flattering look.

If this isn’t the flapper dress for you then we have an even more sophisticated black flapper dress to choose from below.

 

 

Glamour Flapper Costume – X-Small – Dress Size 0-2

This black flapper dress seems even more sophisticated than many of the other dresses available.

It makes me think that the person who wore it would be a high society gal who was rebelling against her family and trying to be a ‘ragtime girl’, hanging out with all of the wrong people – smoking way too much and sipping Champagne cocktails like they were going out of fashion!

This costume has the look of someone on a mission and I think the look of it makes quite a statement with the long, diagonal skirt of the dress hinting at gorgeous legs as opposed to some of the shorter styles available.

flapper girls

Flappers were the name given to young ladies during the 20s who decided to buck their parent’s ideas of tradition and bob their hair, wear shorter skirts and basically have what they would have referred to as a ‘gay old time’. In other words they partied – they drank and smoked and generally lived life as carefree as they could be.

They also flouted the social norms of the time regarding sex which is probably why flapper costumes are often seen as a sexy Halloween costume to wear 🙂

Silver Flapper Dress Costumes

These sizzling silver flapper dresses are awesome and I think silver goes really well with the Champagne cocktails and topless sports cars that we think of when we think of the roaring 20s.

These flappers certainly do look like they know how to enjoy themselves and I think it would be very easy to dance the night away in these outfits whether you’ve learned to do the Charleston to really look the part or whether it’s just ‘regular’ dancing.

These silver flapper costumes will shimmer away as you move to the beat and you’ll find yourself the center of attention!

Flapper Hair Styles

Bobs & Finger Waves

Flappers were known to kick tradition and cut their hair into what were considered to be boyish hair styles such as the bob and Eton crop. There were differences in the bob styles though from the sleek, graduated bob to a curly bob. The finger wave was also a popular way of styling your hair.

If you want to style your hair in a 1920s manner there are lots of videos on YouTube which show how to do a finger wave or else you could buy a 1920s wig. There are lots of different styles of wigs available and I think they really complete the costume.

Flapper Style 1920 Wigs

These wigs are available in different hair colors as well as the ones featured, but I’ve selected three styles which look really great and I’ve chosen a different hair color for each style.

Flapper Costume Accessories Check List

Do you have all of the accessories to complete your gorgeous flapper costume? Let’s have a quick look.

  1. Cigarette Holder – flappers were seen as girls who wore excessive makeup, partied too hard and smoked, but who wants to stain their fingers by holding a cigarette when you can use a cigarette holder? There are some gorgeous cigarette holders available and holding one really adds to your costume and helps transform us right back to the roaring 20s in style!
  2. Headband – feathered, jeweled or sequined headbands (or all of these things on one hair piece!) are a very important part of the flapper costume. A number of the dresses actually do come with a headband, but if yours doesn’t you really should consider adding one. There is an exception and that’s if you have a hat instead, preferably a cloche style.
  3. String of Beads or a Boa – whenever I think of flappers I always think of a long sting of beads, although a feather boa would work fine as well. I’m not sure what it is about these accessories, but the outfit never seems complete without them!
