Halloween Location Looks: Day 14 of 31 – Boogie Nights

My month of DIY costumes shot in front of the actual shooting locations continues!! Day 14 is here and this has been one of my go-to costume for years when I was a blonde! Today’s costume comes from:

I love the 70s aesthetic, so I was super obsessed with this movie when it came out. The clothes, the music, the heart shaped sunglasses!

I used to get "you know who you look like" all the time with Heather Graham, so I used to pick characters she played in films as Halloween costumes.

So for this series, I couldn't resist! The gang spends some time inside the LA diner, Du-pars...

...so that's where I went to shoot this!

To complete a Rollergirl costume, here are the main elements you'll need:

Boogie Nights - Rollergirl

1. Heart shaped sunglasses (Amazon has these for less than $4!)

2. The hair! (my wig is c/o Party City)

3. Rollerskates (Mine were snagged on ebay, but Amazon carries tons of options)

4. Halter (Snag a vintage one while thrifting!)

5. Knee socks (Something above the knee is perfect!)

Yeah, I haven't totally mastered the game of skating...yet.

Right in front of Du-pars, I put on my skates and started spinning!

I wonder if Heather took lessons?

The center parted blonde wig helped me channel the 70s vibe.

I used my actual camera instead of a Polaroid that Rollergirl uses, but I feel like I always see old ones at Goodwill for copycat perfection!
