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 268: Scarface

Day 268: Scarface

In Australia on March 22 1984, Scarface was released. With this as my theme, I take on Michelle Pfeiffer’s character and have dressed as Elvira, Tony Montana’s wife, today. If you can’t tell, I love Michelle Pfeiffer, I just think she’s divine, and in this film her fashion style is off the charts. The outfit I’ve taken on is the infamous white suit and hat.

Day 241: Golden Girls

Day 241: Golden Girls

Today my oldest friend (Emilioooo!) is having her birthday party, deep down I know she wanted it to be Golden Girls themed, but thought no-one would commit to the idea. As a birthday gift, today I have taken on a Golden Girls theme, dressing as Sophia, my favourite character. Sophia, played by Estelle Getty, was the wise-cracking mother of Dorothy (Bea Arthur) who always had the best lines. You can watch some of her best moments here. Happy Birthday darling! I tried to give you the ‘biggest gift’ – me! 😉

Day 217: Insane Answering Machine Message Day

Day 217: Insane Answering Machine Message Day

January 30 is Insane Answering Machine Message Day. As soon as I found that out, I instantly knew who I was going to dress up as: George Costanza. Why? In episode 15 of the 8th season, The Susie, George creates an answering machine message modeled on the song The Greatest American Hero so that he may screen his phone calls. For this costume, the hardest thing was trying to create his hair, so I purchased a bald cap and taped some wig hair onto it, it’s not the best, but I think it gets me there. Also, I threw in the golf ball for the costume as a reference to one of my favourite George moments where he pulls a golf ball out of a whales blowhole while pretending to be a marine biologist.

Day 203: John Carpenter

Day 203: John Carpenter

January 16 is John Carpenter’s birthday. As a child I grew up watching (and re-watching) John Carpenter films, namely Big Trouble in Little China. When my brothers and I would have to hang up the washing, at the end when the basket was empty, one of us would ALWAYS put the basket on top of our heads and spin it to become rain/thunder/lightning from the film. Rather than do that (it doesn’t come off as well when you’re a grown up) I have decided to dress as the lead character – John Burton.

Day 198: Pretty In Pink

Day 198: Pretty in Pink

Today I thought I would take on a user suggested theme. Belinda has suggested that I take on Pretty in Pink, so I have decided to dress as the main character Andie (Molly Ringwald). As you can see from the main image, I have attempted to re-create the look as seen in one of the main promotional photos.

Please note, I do not condone the wearing of orange lipstick outside of a costume.
