There are tons of awesome Halloween costumes out there for couples, like our LMFAO costume, and plenty of ideas for single girls, like our Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry costumes. But if you are best friends forever with more than one person, how can you all dress as something pop related for Halloween?
If you really want a hilarious, timely, and pop culture related costume for 2011, we’ve got the greatest idea ever. Dress like Andy Samberg, Justin Timberlake, and Lady Gaga from their SNL musical short skit, “3-Way (The Golden Rule).”
The costumes are fun, funky, and if you all memorize the song together, super entertaining!
Lady Gaga’s Hair, Make-Up, & Nails
Gaga’s make-up look is less neon ’90s and more dark, sexy Robert Palmer-era “Addicted To Love” with smokey eyes and red lips. Check out this make-up tutorial from the make-up artist who actually created the look!
Don’t forget to add Gaga’s beauty mark.
For Gaga’s hair, all you need is a long side ponytail and three scrunchies. American Apparel has tons of different colored scrunchies you can mix and match.
Lady Gaga’s Biker Shorts
If you can’t find crazy biker shorts at your local vintage shop, Goodwill, or hiding in the back of your mother’s closet, you can always invest in a plain pair of biker shorts and paint them with neon colored fabric paint like these from Michael’s.
Lady Gaga’s Acid Wash Jean Jacket & Her Floral Sports Bra
Vintage painted acid wash jacket from Nasty Gal:
If you don’t want to spend a ton of money on vintage hand-painted or leathered clothing, you can acid wash and paint a jean jacket by yourself. Just buy a super cheap jean jacket (there are always tons at the Goodwill) and follow the instructions below to acid wash it:
When you are finished adding the bleaching effect to the jacket, you can leave it alone, sew leather or satin panels into the top of the jacket, or use more fabric paint to paint your own designs.
Brightly patterned sports bras are not as hard to get your hands on as crazy biker shorts or an embellished denim jacket. We’re a huge fan of this jungle print one from Funkadelic Sports Wear.
If you want it to look more Gaga-ish, throw this magenta cropped waist corset bra from Forever 21 underneath.

Andy Samberg & Justin Timberlake’s Hair & Accessories
If you’re a pair of dudes, you can just grow your hair out and shave it in the necessary pattern. If you don’t want to do that (or you’re a pair of girls), you can easily fake facial hair with make-up and a fake mustache.
Mustaches are an easy find at any Halloween store, but we especially love this goatee/mustache combo.

For your hair, grab a jar of extra-strong gel and do the swoop.
As for jewelry, Justin and Andy are rocking blingin’ gold chains and sunglasses. Opt for fake gold like this necklace from Thug Fashion. Any pair of sunglasses is cool.
Andy Samberg & Justin Timberlake’s Clothing
For this look, all you need is a grey suit and a brightly colored shirt underneath buttoned all the way up with your gold chain around the collar. Easy to find anywhere!
