My costume series kicks off today! One month of costume inspiration from our favorite movies and TV shows shot in front of the actual shooting locations! Get ready. Today's costume comes from:
Grease's "Rydell High" was actually the exterior of Venice High School.
Still looks just like it did when the film was shot in 1978...
I loved the transformation of Sandy(Olivia Newton-John) from poodle skirt to Candie's heels, so we're recreating her sultry side for the costume!
The key Sandy costume pieces that you'll need include:
1. Red Lipstick (I wore MAC Dangerous)
2. Mules (I wore my vintage Candie's, but any slide on heels work!)
4. Leotard (A spandex/nylon one works well)
5. Leggings (shinier, leathery ones will be your best bet)
"Look at me, I'm Sandra D!"
I felt just like I was one of the Rydell kids.
The "shake shack" Sandy/Danny portion has got to be one of the best parts of this end sequence!
Unfortunately, there's no shake shack at the school, so "Danny" and I took to the hallway.
We did our best ONJ/John Travolta impersonation...
...and think we were successful.
Such an easy costume to think about for Halloween!
Channeling my inner Olivia Newton-John couldn't have been more fun!
One look down, 30 to go!
