Lady Gaga's workshop: Have yourself a monstrous little Christmas
Described by a Washington Post writer as a cross between Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "Beetlejuice," the special store/exhibit which opened Monday (Nov. 21) evening features window displays made entirely of wig hair, giant sculptures -- like that Gaga spider -- and plenty of monster-themed tchotchkes to fill Christmas stockings -- especially if you happen to also buy Gaga's stiletto-shaped stockings ($65).
Can't make it to New York? Fear not -- most of the collection is available online at gagasworkshop.com. Get your little monsters a Gaga Little Monster Set ($95) ..... and what is sure to be this year's Cabbage Patch Doll, the inscrutable Egg Spin Toy (above, $35). Fear not, mom and dad -- you can get Gaga'd up yourself with the Classic Motorcycle Jacket ($625) and Military Hat ($350) or, if you're on a budget, a Gaga logo baseball style raglan tee ($38).
Deck your halls with the Avante Garde Boot Stocking ($65) -- it looks a lot like the lobster shoe Gaga threw on stage when she visited "So You Think You Can Dance" earlier this year. Or, go subtle with the Gaga Ornament -- basically a hand-blown glass painted motorcycle with Gaga's head where the handlebars would normally be ($25). Looking for a new take on the Menorah? Why not buy nine Gaga bust candles (at right, $395 each) to celebrate this year's Hanukkah?
Twenty-five percent of sales proceeds will go to Gaga's Born This Way Foundation.
