Prince, Purple Rain, Tribute Costume

  A week ago today the great musician and humanitarian Prince passed away. I was lucky enough to grow up being influenced by his music because I had older brothers. For this reason I could not miss the opportunity to pay tribute to him in the best way that I can, costume. I tried to…

Sexy Female Gremlin Costume

Happy Halloween! I thought long and hard about what would be my main event costume for the end of this daily costumed month and I’m glad I went with the Sexy Female Gremlin costume as it has turned out ACE! It was a pretty big effort on the make-up front, but I think I did pulled…

Adam Maitland from Beetlejuice Costume

I loved Beetlejuice as a kid! So today I have taken on Adam Maitland from Beetlejuice where they have their monster/scary stretchy faces. The mask was made with just folded paper on top of a cap, so I’m pretty stoked with how well it turned out on such a dodgy concept. Photo credit: Noodle Noo…

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,…

Day 333: E.T.

On the 26th of May, 1982, E.T. premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Steven Spielberg’s film about a lonely boy befriending an extraterrestrial from outer space was a childhood favourite – as it was for many. So with this as my theme today, I have chosen to dress as Elliott as he heroically escapes from the government with E.T, to get…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
