The Lady Gaga telephone costume is nearly done. The headband is (and has been for several days) complete, as are the shorts. The headband was ridiculously easy: just three tubes of fabric sewn togther and painted with acrylic paint. I particularily pleased with the shorts because I drafted the patterns for them myself using Patterns that fit you: Free shorts pattern and this ehow article . Ah, how I love the Internet. All that's left is the tube top and gloves.
