Lady Gaga Offers Halloween-Costume Advice To Fans: ‘Lots Of Latex’

If you're planning on dressing up like the star, make sure you have 'wigs and high heels.'

[artist id=”3061469″]Lady Gaga’s[/artist] look is anything but simple — she’s usually rocking a combination of platinum-blond hair, heavy makeup, a wacky getup of some sort and heels. And while she often favors crazy hats, she regularly eschews pants. So as Halloween quickly approaches, prepare yourselves: There will most likely be a few Lady Gaga impersonators walking the streets of your city.

MTV News caught up with the singer herself, who offered a list of the most essential items needed for a convincing Gaga costume. “Wigs, purple shampoo and high heels. Lots of latex.”

Halloween would also seem like the perfect chance for Gaga to finally be able to roam the streets unnoticed among a sea of copycats, but as it turns out it’s actually a better time for her to just be Stefani Germanotta. “I’m just gonna not dress up, because I have been unable to just go out and have, like, a good hammered evening out … sloppy, like maybe face-down somewhere in a bar,” she explained on New York’s Z-100 radio station on Tuesday morning (October 27).

So, Gaga has opted to just have a good time and not put the pressure on herself to come up with an elaborate costume. But, she did come up with a pretty clever idea for the day. “So I’m pretty excited about going out and not dressing up, because I heard that a lot of people are dressing like me,” she said. “I should do some kind of, like, ’Where’s Waldo?’ competition? Like ’Where’s Gaga?’ ”

It’s Halloween Week, the spookiest time of the year and also the most fun. So as the leaves fall and it gets a bit colder, we here at MTV News decided to pay homage to the holiday by rounding up some of your favorite celebrities’ Halloween memories and costume ideas — some even offer advice on how to dress up like them this year. So brace yourselves: You’re in for one horrifying week!
