My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 24 is here and it's an 80s movie that I watched with my mom when I was younger because she had read the book. Today’s costume comes from:
I recall a very young Mayim Bialik playing Bette Midler as a child and all I thought about was how much I wanted her fringy costume!
The opening scene is shot at the Hollywood Bowl which happens to be a place that I'm very familiar with.
Shooting there when it was completely empty was such a treat. It's one of the coolest spots in Los Angeles!
I thought recreating one of Bette's looks from Beaches would be just the thing for my costume series!
To dress like Bette, the only real thing you'll need is a red wig (and a mic if so inclined) as well as "Wind Beneath My Wings" playing on your smart phone the whole night!
I wore a blue blazer from my collection to match the blazer that Bette wore.
Her name was on the marquee...
...my name was most definitely not.
...and I pretended to sing.
We're really just so similar!!
Twenty-four looks down, 7 to go!
