My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 28 is here and I get to play out one of Tom Cruise's most iconic roles. Today’s costume comes from:
One of my all time favorite Tom Cruise roles - I mean come on...
Dancing in that white shirt to "Good Time Rock and Roll" - the best ever!!
The film shot mostly in Chicago, however there was additional material shot in LA and this house in Altadena was said to be where some of it was filmed...
...so a trip had to be made.
To complete the Tom Cruise costume from Risky Business, here are the main elements you'll need:
(If you've got a rad brother, boyfriend, husband, pal, cousin, etc. who might have these pieces in their closet - borrow away!)
2. Boxers (Hanes. Target. Done.)
4. Socks (Grabbed a pair from the stash!)
I put on my shirt, boxers, sunnies, and socks and started to play air guitar.
Because when you're Tom Cruise, you play air guitar.
Then I pretended to sing "Old Time Rock and Roll".
Because when you're Tom Cruise, you pretend to sing "Old Time Rock and Roll".
I kind of love this look, brown wig and all.
I think this could be a very fun party theme...
These boxer briefs are SO comfortable. Dudes, you guys have it made!
Oh, and those sunnies...
Tom, you're the poster boy for Wayfarers.
Twenty-eight looks down, three to go!
