The Well-Accessorized Witch

I didn't realize when I watched Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video earlier this year that I'd actually found my ideal Halloween costume. Here are a few stills of the looks I love. The first is Gaga in jail, with aluminum can hair curlers (so great) while donning designer clothes. The second look features her Wonder Woman-esque costume. The third shows the telephone hat which I deeply love and want for myself. If you haven't seen this video it is hilarious and filthy and was the point at which I decided I liked Lady Gaga (I had been on the fence). She has a great voice, she's a good songwriter, she's deep into fashion and she makes me dance and laugh. What's not to like? I felt the same way about Madonna when I first discovered her at fifteen.

Since I have no time this month to make my own telephone hat for Halloween I am instead going for the Stylish Witch look and my costume will consist of the above items. It will also include a gorgeous dramatic full length black velvet coat, given to me by my husband's grandmother from her personal fashion collection.

Witch hat--CVS
Glasses--Party City
Necklace--J. Crew
Pink disco wig--Revlon
Black silk rose--M&J Trimming
Black nail polish--Chanel
Leopard cuff--La Crasia

I love Lady Gaga too! I saw her live earlier this year and haven't stopped playing her Monster album since. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment.

I am so jealous you got to see Gaga. The tickets for all her NYC shows in July were sold out and they are already gone for February 2011 too! Boo-hiss!
