Day 364: Mary

Day 364: Mary

Today is the second last costume of my year-long daily costume challenge. When brainstorming with friends about what would be my last costume, many people thought that I should take on a Mary theme, as in just go as me. I thought that would be a HUGE cop out and a waste of my last day of costume,  so please rest assured that I will not be doing that tomorrow. But the idea of a ‘Mary’ theme interested me, so today I have done that dressing as Mary from There’s Something About Mary. I tried my best to recreate that hair style scene, but wigs are  not as malleable as one would hope, so this is the best I could come up with, but I think I got the movie poster dress spot-on.  And now I’ll leave you with this, years ago my friends and I were joking about titles for our future, non-existent autobiographies and when it came to me, it was decided a play-on-popular-culture would be best, with my autobiography title being: There’s TOO Much About Mary.

Day 358: Jaws

Day 358: Jaws

On June 20, 1975, Jaws was released. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the Peter Benchley novel. The film is set in Amity Island where a giant man-eating Great White shark starts to attack beach goers, causing the Police Chief to join forces with a marine-biologist (and a professional shark hunter) in order to stop it. For this reason, today I have dressed up as a Great White shark myself.

Day 357: The Rocketeer

Day 357: The Rocketeer

On June 19, 1991, The Rocketeer premiered. The Rocketeer was a film about a young pilot who finds a prototype jetpack that allows him to fly and then becomes a masked hero. Not many people know about this film, but I remember loving it as a child and rumour has it it may be remade.
