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 ...

Day 5: Log Lady

(Or: "My log has something to tell you.") Anyone who's ever talked to me about TV probably knows that I'm obsessed with Twin Peaks. I love the original series, the return, and even Fire Walk With Me (I know). It was a struggle to limit myself to only a couple Twin Peaks costumes, and an ...

Day 4: Lydia Deetz

(Or: "My whole life is a dark room.") Much like my internal debate between book-Annie and movie-Annie, I had trouble choosing between movie-Lydia and cartoon-Lydia. The Beetlejuice cartoon was a huge part of my childhood--and is probably the reason that I love a good cape. As with Annie, I settle on a combination of the ...

Day 3: Annie Wilkes

(Or: "Can't suture... Got to cauterize.") Is it any sursprise that one of my costumes is from a Stephen King novel? It's probably even less surprising that I chose something from one of my top three favourite King novels (The Shining, Misery, and 11/22/63, in case you were curious). When I was planning out the ...
