Lady Gaga (Meat-Dress Edition)

What you'll need:
• A blonde wig
• Approximately 20 lb. of prosciutto, or one ream of red construction paper
• A willingness to be the center of attention wherever you go (optional)

It took a while, but the world finally saw the platonic ideal of an outrageous Lady Gaga outfit this year at the MTV Video Music Awards, where the singer performed in a dress made entirely out of meat. Going the full Gaga this Halloween will take the assistance of a butcher and a whole lot of chutzpah, so feel free to tone it down by making your steaks out of red construction paper. If you do choose to go the carrion route, get ready for some nasty looks: with the smell of rotting animal flesh following you around, you may feel more like Lady Gag-ga.
