My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 14 is here and this has been one of my go-to costume for years when I was a blonde! Today’s costume comes from:
I love the 70s aesthetic, so I was super obsessed with this movie when it came out. The clothes, the music, the heart shaped sunglasses!
I used to get "you know who you look like" all the time with Heather Graham, so I used to pick characters she played in films as Halloween costumes.
So for this series, I couldn't resist! The gang spends some time inside the LA diner, Du-pars...
...so that's where I went to shoot this!
To complete a Rollergirl costume, here are the main elements you'll need:
1. Heart shaped sunglasses (Amazon has these for less than $4!)
2. The hair! (my wig is c/o Party City)
3. Rollerskates (Mine were snagged on ebay, but Amazon carries tons of options)
4. Halter (Snag a vintage one while thrifting!)
5. Knee socks (Something above the knee is perfect!)
Yeah, I haven't totally mastered the game of skating...yet.
Right in front of Du-pars, I put on my skates and started spinning!
I wonder if Heather took lessons?
The center parted blonde wig helped me channel the 70s vibe.
I used my actual camera instead of a Polaroid that Rollergirl uses, but I feel like I always see old ones at Goodwill for copycat perfection!
One final shot...
...before leaving this location.
Matching skater girls!
Fourteen looks down, 17 to go!
