How to Dress Like a Little Monster for Lady Gaga

Mother Monster returns to Dallas this Thursday at American Airlines Center and this time she brings her artRAVE: The artPOP Ball along with her. Never mind the haters; seeing Lady Gaga in concert is still a crazy-fun experience and a great excuse to dress up. In fact, it's the Little Monsters who really steal the show. Arenas around the world are invariably filled with fans who go all-out on costumes inspired by one of many different Gaga incarnations.

If you're joining in on the fun tomorrow, you won't want to be the loser who shows up without a costume. It's an "artRAVE" after all. If you're not sure how to make that perfect costume, we have a handful of can't-miss tips to get you going. And even if you're not attending the artRAVE save the list anyway -- Halloween is just around the corner.

1. Wear a Wig
Let's be real: if you didn't already know, Gaga rarely wears her natural hair out and you shouldn't have to either. (Well at least for this one night.) The classic blond bob with blunt front bangs is her staple look. Any wig would work, though, since she herself has certainly ventured out of that particular iteration.

2. Use Lots of Boldly Colored Makeup
A dramatic winged eyeliner with fake lashes and some vibrant red or pink lipstick may do the job. But there are other notable makeup looks like the skull makeup look from her "Born This Way" music video. Some other more "artistic" looks include the one from the "Applause" music video and, duh, let's not forget her David Bowie-esque lightning-bolt makeup.

3. Wear Your Underwear (For Real Though)
Everyone knows Gaga doesn't wear much clothing when she performs (or ever, to be honest) and, well, our Texas summer makes it a perfect excuse to copy her look. Just like her staple blond bob, she's also evolved from her disco bra and hot pants look to a silver studded or sea-shell bra look. Get that lace bra and give it some use or else add
sequins to make it flashy.
