LACMA shooting location

Halloween Location Looks: 21 of 31 - My So-Called Life

My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 21 is here and it's an homage to the TV show of my teenage years. Today’s costume comes from:

MSCL - My-So-Called-Life-Banner

All I know is that Jordan Catalano was the angsty-teen heartthrob of m'dreams.

And, I wanted auburn hair more than anything when I was 12. (I just decided to wait 20 years to have that red hair dream come to a reality!!)

The episode "Why Jordan Can't Read" had a scene that was shot at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)...

LA Story - LACMA a visit within the collections was soon to be had!

For the perfect Claire Danes as Angela Chase ensemble, think ultimate 90s, grunge-chic.

1. Plaid shirt (Mine was thrifted, but you can find plaid shirts everywhere!)

2. Babydoll Dress! (Mine is H&M, but this is another piece sure to be found while thrifting or on a quick mall trip.)

I put on my 90s ensemble and headed to the museum!

The My So-Called Life teens were there for a field trip (or hook up session as per Rayanne below)...


...which made me wish I was part of their high school because I don't recall any art museum trips. I recall trips to the county dump (we learned about recycling!), but none to see art.

Claire Danes had the frustrated teen thing down. The sighs, the deep thoughts, the hair pushing away from her face...

I tried to do my best Claire while viewing the collections...

Just wished that I had seen Jordan Catalano on any of my field trips, though...
