My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 15 is here and it's from a film that made me love LA after I had been living here for a bit. Today’s costume comes from:
...at LACMA, which happens to be within walking distance of my casa!
A quick trip down the street for today's look to find where they shot this:
To complete a Steve Martin costume from LA Story, here are the main elements you'll need:
1. Black cardigan and pants (Both from my collection, but this is another easy find, whether you hit H&M or Salvation Army.)
2. The hat! (this white hat is c/o Party City)
3. Skates (I didn't bring my pair from inside in fear of getting kicked out, but to score a pair of your own, Amazon carries tons of options)
4. White blouse (Straight from my closet leftover from my serving days!)
Grab the skates, it's time to go to the museum!
So, I didn't actually bring my skates inside! I pretended to glide past the art like Steve Martin, though.
I would never have made it past those guards with my no-so-stellar skating skills.
I felt like a mime being framed in this piece of art outside. (PS, costume option #2 = mime!)
I rolled through the museum halls just like SM...
...sat and reflected...
...just like SM...
...and posed just like SM.
Now I'm in the mood to rewatch this!
Fifteen looks down, 16 to go!
