Last year I channelled my inner Holly Golightly on Halloween, but this year I went for something a little bit different.
Ahh Amélie. Have been obsessed with this film ever since I saw it a decade and a half back. The reason is probably because I feel related to the character. I also couldn’t possibly tell you how many countless times I listened to Yann Tiersen’s majestic soundtrack and well, consequently to anything he’s ever done.
While I could never compare myself to Audrey Tautou (most beautiful woman ever besides Brooke Shields), to dress up like her for Halloween is something I always wanted to do. I tried my best to impersonate the character, though we literally had the minutes counted to shoot (because of the time change), so we couldn’t do much. Otherwise I could have done a bit more.
The Halloween costume? Quite simple:
What you’ll need:
- Red Cardigan.
- Navy Blue Midi Skirt or Dress (preferrably dotted).
- Brogues or Combat Boots.
- Bob wig (naturally).
- A spoon.
- An umbrella (preferrably in red or blue with dots).
- A whimsical, yet naive attitude.
That’s about it. Yes, that’s the beauty of Halloween: you can become your favorite characters and recreate characters with stuff you already own.
