Lady Gaga's Meat Dress will probably be the Halloween costume of the season, but is it such a good idea? Not really, according to several New Jersey butchers, if you needed a professional opinion. One told the Star-Ledger, "Beyond the sanitary aspects, there's the question of connective tissue. If you're going to sew something like this together, there's a very good possibility that its going to split through the grain and fall apart."
Another butcher remarked, "If it's fresh meat, you're going to get blood, juice, all over everything you touch....it's not very hygienic," and a third added, "There's no insulating value at all....if it's a cold Halloween, you're going to freeze." Then there's also the cost, which could be $250 or more.
