Day 326: Jackie Kennedy Onassis

Day 326: Jackie Kennedy Onassis

 

On May 19, 1994, Jackie Onassis passed away. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and was known for her style and grace. Today, I take her on as my theme, hoping to replicate her effortless 60’s style.

Day 310: Christina Hendricks

Day 310: Christina Hendricks

May 3 is Christina Hendricks’ birthday, Christina is most-known for her role in Mad Men as Joan Holloway, the office manager at the advertising agency Sterling Cooper. For this reason, today I have dressed as Joan. Please note that in order to get anywhere near the bust of Christina I had to wear two bras stuffed on top of each other and even then, I’m hardly even close.

Day 309: Austin Powers

Day 309: Austin Powers

On May 2, 1997, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery was released, so this is why I have taken it on as my theme today dressing as a Fembot. Fembots are  beautiful women dressed in provocative outfits who were used by Dr. evil against Austin Powers. They are known for their greatest weapon – guns hidden within their breasts which can fire knockout gas or bullets – more affectionately known as machine gun jubblies.

Day 272: Diana Ross

Day 272: Diana Ross

March 26 is Diana Ross’ birthday, in celebration of that I have decided to dress as her. Of course if you’re going to do Diana Ross the costume comes down to the hair. Luckily I have naturally curly hair, so all I had to do to create her beautiful bouffant was take a brush to it.
