Gaga’s Meat Dress: Best. Halloween. Costume. Ever.

By

So, you of course remember Lady Gaga’s meat dress. We’ve talked about it here and here.

Now with Halloween just a couple weeks away, you might want to start thinking about how you can replicate that beauty for your spooky neighborhood party.

According to one article, this is the hot costume of the Halloween season this year. Read on …

The prime cut in Halloween costumes this year is Lady Gaga’s meat dress – if you can find it.

The little bloody dress donned by the diva last month is the most searched for celebrity costume on Yahoo.com, the website said.

A check of local costume shops came up empty, but at least one city butcher is willing to create the getup.

“It would be a challenge, but I think we could make it,” said Andrew Ilnicki, a meat carver at the East Village Meat Market on E. Ninth St.

“You would have to be very skillful,” he said. “It looked like 15 to 20 pounds of flank steak. It would take 10 hours.”

The price? Ilnicki said the steaks alone would run $150 and the labor involved would bring the price for the cookout-ready costume close to $1,000.

That’s a lot of dough for a Halloween costume! What are YOU going to be for Halloween this year? Gaga, perhaps???
