My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 30 is here and it's on my list as one of my favorite Coen Brothers movies. Today’s costume comes from:
There is nothing cooler than Jeff Bridges as The Dude.
This opening scene is the best - he's in a Ralphs grocery store, wearing his iconic robe, drinking some milk. Like you do...
I had to hit up a local Ralphs to recreate this fun scene.
The things you'll need for the perfect dude costume are...
1. Robe (mine is from Overstock.com, but anything in the brown family works like a charm!)
2. Beard (this one is c/o Party City)
Let's go to Ralphs!
I grabbed my robe and headed off to the grocery store!
I grabbed that milk carton and brought out the Dude!
Employees were restocking while I wore my robe in the dairy section. It's LA, there's crazy stuff everywhere, so nobody blinked an eye!
I tried my best to recreate Jeff's incredible facial hair.
Nothing like a fake beard to really feel like El Duderino.
Thirty looks down, one to go!
