Day 355: The Smurfs

Day 355: The Smurfs

Today I am taking on the user-suggested theme of The Smurfs, dressing up as the only female Smurf, Smurfette. As a child I LOVED the Smurfs, but a couple of years ago I bought a DVD of the show and when I re-watched it, let me tell you that it does not hold up. Not even nostalgically and that made me sad. Plus, I look terrible in blue makeup, but a quick google search tells me that no-one can pull off blue-face…

Day 354: Grease

 

 

Day 354: Grease

 

On June 16, 1978, Grease was released. Grease would have to be one of my favourite films of all time, it’s one of those childhood classics that when you re-watch makes you feel nostalgic in a warm and fuzzy way. With this as my theme for today, I have chosen to dress as Sandy in the last scene. Only now when I watch this film I realise how inappropriate the moral of the story is for a young girl – change everything about who you are so that the boy will like and date you…awkward. Eh, either way, great musical that I will never stop loving.

Day 352: 80’s Movie

Day 352: 80's Movie

Today I take on another user-suggested theme – 80’s movie. There were SOOOOOO many good options here – I could do a John Hughes film like Breakfast Club or Pretty in Pink… hang on, nope, already done those. A John Carpenter film like Big Trouble in Little China? Nope, that one too. So then I thought, what would have to be the most ridiculous/outlandish 80’s film I’ve ever seen… and just like that I settled on Teen Wolf. A film about a teenage boy (Michael J. Fox) who when starts turning into a werewolf, uses his supernatural powers to help his school win at basketball. Oh, and did I mention there’s a character called Boof? #bringbackthe80s

Day 349: Napoleon Dynamite

Day 349: Napoleon Dynamite

On June 11, 2004, Napoleon Dynamite was released. The film soon became a cult hit with it’s offbeat humour and awkward characters and moments. With this as my theme, I have decided to dress as the main character, Napoleon Dynamite. (Previously I have dressed up as Rex for the blog)

Before I leave you, here are some of my favourite quotes – why not leave your favourites below as comments:

 

“I see you’re drinking 1%. Is that ’cause you think you’re fat? ‘Cause you’re not. You could be drinking whole if you wanted to.”

“Napoleon, don’t be jealous that I’ve been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I’m training to be a cage fighter.”

“It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It’s probably the best drawing I’ve ever done.”

Day 347: Natalie Portman

Day 347: Natalie Portman

June 9 is Natalie Portman’s birthday. I was spoilt for choice with characters I could dress up as today, but none more dramatic than Nina as the black swan from Black Swan. The intense make-up took about 40 minutes, but looked amazing and pretty spot on if I do say so myself.
