The Lady Gaga Bubble Dress Costume
And How to Make Your Own Bubble Dress
One of Lady Gaga’s most famous dresses is the Bubble Dress. She is surely destined to be a style icon even if her music is a fad and does not last. (Not my prediction at all, but the public seems to be fickle.)
The Lady Gaga Bubble Dress is available for you to make as a costume, just by gathering the parts and putting it together yourself. I have gathered some videos and photos to show you how, and the necessary supplies are available to purchase here as well.
But you can go wild when doing your own, and Lady Gaga would applaud this, so it’s more fun to add in your own ideas and design your own Bubble Dress. All the stuff you need is either here on this page, or you can click on the pictures to find even more bubbles. Enjoy!

Lady Gaga Explains Her Style
“I’m obsessively opposed to the typical.”

It’s easier to watch this video of the man who designed it explaining it step by step than it is for me to explain it. There is one thing he does not do that could be done. If you are a knitter or a crochet person, you could chain stitch a length of nylon filament to make the connections of the bubbles to the dress longer and more flexible so you could actually sit down in the dress. As it it presented, it’s pretty hard to sit in the dress. There are other Lady Gaga fancy dress outfits though. So if her Bubble Dress is too much, you can go for some of her other ones, like the Meat dress. Even more outrageous and you can sit on it. Me, I like the bubbles.

Copy Lady Gaga’s Dress or Make Your Own?
Bubbles For a Lady Gaga Costume!
Some people like to be more creative and I am one of them. To me a celebrity’s dress idea is just a starting point. If I were to make the Lady Gaga Bubble Dress, I would start with a slip or mini dress and sew the bubbles on it, but I would mix in some different looking bubbles and trinkets. Here are some that I found which would look great. Click on any image to find more….and let your imagination run wild, like Lady Gaga does!
As Lady Gaga herself would say, it’s all about expressing yourself! So there is no need to copy her. Strut your own stuff. Put on a leotard. Add some color via scarves, glitter, boas, sequined tops. Add some boots or sexy shoes, your choice. Put on some weird sunglasses, or decorate some of your own. Spray a new stripe in your hair. Mix your colors. Have some fun. Do your makeup to match your outfit. Decorate yourself and be yourself. That’s her message in a nutshell anyway!

Lace Mini Dresses for a Lady Gaga Bubble Dress
Lace is a really good dress to use as a starting point for your bubble dress. The nature of lace allows for easy sewing/attaching of the bubbles and trinkets.
