My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continue!! Today's costume comes from:
I love this movie :)
They actually shot the Harvard Square scenes at the All Saints Church in Pasadena...
...so I knew I had to recreate an Elle Woods costume!
The key Elle Woods costume pieces that you’ll need include:
1. Pink!! (The cardi and dress are H&M - sweater thrifted from Goodwill, dress hanging in my closet for 4 years!)
Time to "bend and snap"!
My real hair color is blonde, but not blonde enough to mimic Reese Witherspoon in this movie!
With my wig on, I prepped for my best "bend and snap"...
...and got to bending and snapping!
The church has a gothic feel, so it totally seems like it could be Harvard! Just by looking at the below shot, I totally bought it.
The architecture is stunning.
Reese was rocking the pink throughout the film...
...so a mix of a strapless pink dress and a pink cardigan made up my lookalike costume. That's the best part about this ensemble. You can't go wrong by wearing pink!!
I brought my stuffed Bruiser along with me, being he has just as big of a role as Reese Witherspoon does!
Three looks down, 28 to go!
