What is your damage, Heather?
Heathers is one of my favorite movies, and I’ve always had this Heathers group costume on my bucket list. I called on my friends Christine of My Style Pill and Helena of Brooklyn Blonde to help me out, because a true friend’s work is never done. We donned our best power blazers and matching skirts, pretended we knew how to play croquet, and ate corn nuts…because character study, you know? Christine is Heather McNamara, Helena is Heather Chandler, and as the dark haired one of the bunch, I’m Heather Duke. But truth be told, I’m more of a Veronica. I originally intended to dress as Veronica Sawyer and have Bobby be Jason Dean for part 2, but with my seven million costumes and makeup looks (only slight hyperbole), I ran out of time. So, this group costume is all about the three Heathers. How very.
All of the components of our outfits are either from a thrift store or our own closets, and I ordered the croquet set on Amazon Prime Now, because I got tired of trying to find it in stores. I guess it’s not so popular in NYC. No one plays it in their nonexistent yards, huh? Go figure. It’s pretty essential to the costume, although you could swap it out with a copy of Moby Dick, some Hull Cleaner, corn nuts, a Big Fun album…there are so many prop options. Just grab a couple of friends, choose your color, and give this Heathers group costume a go!
Great pâté, but I gotta motor if I wanna be ready for Halloween.
