On Saturday, published a photo of Lady Gaga getting into the spirit of things in Texas by wearing denim jeans and hand-made boots.  Now we know the incredible story behind the vest she was also sporting the afternoon before her Austin show.

Gaga's striking red vest was made by one of her biggest fans, Christopher Roa, a Sacramento make-up artist and painter, who goes by the name Mr. Make Up.

He took his own 1980s vintage leather vest and applied dozens of studs by hand.  He painted on a triangle representing the LGBT community and Gaga's favorite symbol, a unicorn, reported The Sacramento Bee.

Roa then went to Gaga's March 23 show in Sacramento, and waited for an opportunity to toss the vest on stage as a birthday present for his hero.

She not only picked it up but the singer wore it through several more songs!

Gaga said it was the best birthday present she ever got -- she turned 25 on March 28 -- and Roa called the whole experience a thrill of a lifetime.

Lady Gaga does love her Monsters and they definitely love her back.
