Someone is looking extra spooky on the set of “American Horror Story: Hotel”! Filming for Season 5 of the FX anthology series is underway, and a photo of Lady Gaga in costume has leaked online. The new image not only gives fans a first look at her character, Elizabeth, but it also reveals her chilling new accessory – a single (and sharp!) silver glove.
According to People magazine, Mother Monster was photographed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Urban Light installation. The 29-year-old “Cheek to Cheek” singer spotted wearing a bright pink floor length gown with cape-like sleeves. Two silver fish-shaped pins adorn her dress, but the real eye catcher is the silver glove on her left hand.

The potentially deadly accessory was first teased during a short promo video for the upcoming fifth season. The clip, which was released in mid-July, aired during an episode of “The Strain.” Footage from the video feature a silver gloved female hand reaching to hit a bell for assistance. After ringing the bell, the pointy nails tap the counter and make a metallic noise. The name “Lady Gaga” flashes across the screen before advertising the new installment of “American Horror Story.”
“American Horror Story” Season 5 is set in a Los Angeles hotel. Gaga’s character Elizabeth is the wealthy socialite owner of the establishment, which is called Hotel Cortez. Although her character has been described as “evil,” fans don’t know the extent of some of her wicked behavior or deeds. However, series co-creator Ryan Murphy did reveal at the Television Critics Association summer press tour earlier this month that Gaga’s character will be working closely with returning cast members Finn Wittrock and Matt Bomer’s characters.
“American Horror Story: Hotel” will premiere on FX on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
