Day 7: Baby Jane Hudson

Last year, my favourite costume was Regan MacNeil. I loved figuring out how to mix up fake vomit (even though I couldn't get the smell out of my nose for days) and taking pictures that freaked me out. This year, I had the most fun with Baby Jane Hudson. I sense a theme: I like ...

Day 6: Laura Palmer

The first time I heard about Twin Peaks was in my third year of University. My friends (and eventual roommates) Andrew and Viga had started watching it and told me all these weird things about the show and how brilliant it is. They even started leaving mysterious notes on my car, telling me that gum ...

Day 5: Creepy Doll

I have no idea when I started to find dolls creepy. It's not like with clowns, where I've been afraid of them as long as I can remember. My parents used to have these porcelain dolls that I was obsessed with. I thought they were the most beautiful things I'd ever seen. I was fascinated, ...

Day 4: Laurie Strode

I first saw the original Halloween around ten years ago when I was on a classic horror movie kick. Although I loved it--especially that impressive long, single take that opens the movie--I'm not sure I fully appreciated that it really pioneered that whole wave of slashers.  I definitely remember being really frustrated with Laurie as ...

Day 3: Bad Janet

I am obsessed with The Good Place. I'd argue that it's one of the best new comedies of the decade. Unfortunately, it's suuuuuuuuuuuper hard to write about it without giving too much away, but my costume will make zero sense without some sort of knowledge of the show. So that you don't have to poke ...

Day 2: Janis Ian

Years ago, I remember reading that Lindsay Lohan was going to be in a movie that was adapted from some self-help book aimed at parents of teen girls, and I thought it sounded really weird. But, as a big Lilo fan (er, at the time), I decided to give it a chance.  And my love ...

Day 1: Surprise, Bitch

It's that time of year again where I dress up in costume and take pictures of myself! Although I've been super excited to start into the costumes, I actually have fewer ideas than I did last year (it's possible that 12 was a bit ambitious?), so this year will be seven days straight of costume-y ...

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 ...
