My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 9 is here and it’s from a show that I've started rewatching on Hulu again. Today’s costume comes from:
I'm humming the opening theme song now!! I felt super mature watching this when I was a kid. I always remembered wanting Donna and Kelly's wardrobes. Shocker? Absolutely not.
So, when I took a visit to the iconic Walsh household in Pasadena...
...it was like I was transported right into that TV show that I was so obsessed with as a kid.
I must say, the episode that always resonated with me was the one where Brenda and Kelly wore the same dress to the spring dance. Literal. Nightmare.
I had a similar issue in middle school, however I found out about it in advance. My mom and I nipped it in the bud by heading to another mall outside of our town and picking up a back-up. (I ended up loving the back-up more than the original!)
To create the perfect Brenda/Kelly look, the one main costume component you'll need is that 90s dress! Hit your local thrift stores and you're guaranteed to be sorting through tons of potentials.
After hitting a thrifty hunt, the dress that I found came pretty close...
To really get the same look, I could have removed the bow and replaced it with a white bow on top, so keep that in mind while perusing. If you have a black dress at home already, getting some thicker white ribbon will totally do the trick.
While I was shopping, so was Kelly...
...who found the same black and white dress at the same time at the boutique. I mean, it's a cute dress...
I actually really like my magenta, big, bowed option!
Just to not feel super out of the loop, I tied a white ribbon on top of my dress!
This smells like a fun group costume!!
Nine looks down, 22 to go!
