Day 12: Diane Evans

(Or: "Fuck you, Albert") I mentioned in my Log Lady post that I'd also be doing a costume from the new season of Twin Peaks, and here she is: Diane Evans. Although she didn't appear in the original series, Diane's been a legend since we first met Dale Cooper as he talked into his tape ...

Day 11: Regan MacNeil

(Or: "What an excellent day for an exorcism") The Exorcist scared the crap out of me as a pre-teen. I'm not sure my parents would have let me watch it, but I was able to rent it while visiting my Grandma. I watched a few things at her place that I probably wasn't old enough ...

Day 10: Joyce Byers

(Or: "I sound crazy... You think I don't know that?") Confession: I actually had a whole other post planned for today. But when I realized that it's the season 2 premiere of Stranger Things, I clearly had to scrap that other post. I think this is the most excited I've ever been for a new ...

Day 9: Leatherface

(Or: "My family's always been in meat.") Yes, I know, that quote wasn't actually from Leatherface, but other than grunts and screams, he doesn't really have any lines. Anyway, I already mentioned a couple weeks ago how much I like this movie. Yes, there are some things that are problematic about it (especially its treatment ...

Day 8: Wednesday Addams

(Or: "Are they made from real Girl Scouts?") Last week, I talked about how much I love Morticia Addams. I also have a soft spot for Wednesday. Maybe it's her all-black wardrobe, but it's more likely her hilarious quips and inability to suffer fools: Joel: Wednesday, do you think that maybe someday you might want ...

Day 7: Edie Sedgwick

(Or: "You live alone, creating your life as you go.") A few years ago, I went through a phase where I was o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d with all things Warhol, which led me to watch (the critically reviled, but personally loved) Factory Girl. Although I'd heard of Edie Sedgwick before, I didn't really know much about her beyond her ...

Day 6: Dark Willow

(Or: "Bored now.") I didn't get into Buffy until a few years after it went off the air, which is ridiculous... not just because the show is amazing, but because one of my best friends is the biggest Buffy fan I've ever met. Since then, I've rewatched the entire show at least twice, and I ...
