Tucker and Dale vs Evil (T&DvE) is both a horror movie and a comedy. It is extra funny if you’re a horrorhead (like a sneakerhead but for horror films. I just made it up. Tell your friends.) because that way you pick up on the allusions sprinkled throughout the movie. It isn’t just a collection of clichés though, as the film does enough to feel fresh and fun!
A lot of the costumes I’ve done this month have been geared for colder weather. Dressing as Allison from T&DvE is an outfit you could wear if your costume party or Halloween event happens with warmer weather. (Side note: What’s with movies never giving characters named Allison a last name though?)
This outfit consists of a Goodfellow & Co long sleeve, collared, button up shirt that I borrowed from my spouse (and twisted up the bottom and tucked up the sleeves), a white bandeau bra from Maidenform, a pair of Mossimo Supply Co long shorts that I got from a clothing swap, a pair of wool socks I borrowed from my partner (not pictured above), and the same Hi-tec hiking boots that I used for Heather Donahue from The Blair Witch Project.
For my hair, I used the same wig that I had on for Carrie White from Carrie. For makeup, there was maybe some leftover lipstick residue or maybe just lip balm.
For my accessory, I used a belt from a sweater I no longer own, if I ever did, and I used it in place of the fabric that Allison ties around her head after removing the gauze. You could also choose to use some gauze instead, but I didn’t want to waste any, whereas you can wash and reuse a fabric belt. #RefuseReduceReuseRewearRepurpose
For my first prop, I used some jute rope that I acquired from a shop on etsy to fix some cat furniture that my cats scratched up. (It’s still on the To-Do list.)
For my second prop, I used a bench that normally resides on the back deck with plants on it. While obviously this bench does not resemble the machinery in the sawmill, with a little cropping and/or photo editing it’ll get the job done.
Catch me back here tomorrow for another “work with what you’ve got!” Halloween costume, cosplay outfit idea.
