Date: December 28th 2018 Location: Park Theater (Las Vegas, Nevada)
After being outfitted by Enigma, Lady Gaga's alter ego, in the simulation, Lady Gaga arrives back on stage atop a giant robot in one of her most futuristic looks to date! Her sci-fi bodysuit was designed and created like a giant circuit board that lit up by Asher Levine who previously worked with Lady Gaga for Rolling Stone magazine and her "Marry The Night" music video. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos of the costume's creation on the left.
To create the outfit, Levine started by hand scanning Mother Monster to make the costume fit like a second skin because "if we are making a skintight bodysuit with electricity running through it for Gaga, I need to know her exact geometry," he told Vogue.
Levine, and his team, employed so many new technologies and methods that allowed them to do what they did in such a short time frame. These technologies included experimental bonding techniques and diffusion systems that wirelessly connect Lady Gaga into the stage lighting sequences and create really dynamic animation during the show.
With barely a month to complete the technically complex commission, the costume was finished at 11pm on Christmas Day, driven to Las Vegas, and hand delivered by Levine himself. "We lit her up on Christmas Day," Levine noted to Vogue. "Isn't that hilarious? We were all so happy when we lit the tree."
And so was Lady Gaga who asked for a round of applause to the designer according to Levine. "For someone of her caliber who has basically seen and worn everything to say that, there was something super magical about it. I'm so glad that she and her team chose us to carry out her vision." Levine's full interview with Vogue, including dozens of behind-the-scenes photos is available here.
