Even though in middle school my friend group all picked a Looney Tunes character to be our nickname and mine was Tweety, I find Heather McNamara to be the least relatable Heather. Perhaps it is because her character wasn’t fleshed out much beyond being a popular cheerleader with guy problems or perhaps it is because yellow is my least favorite color. (The irony is not lost on me that I currently live in a bright yellow house.) Also, Heather McNamara has the least memorable lines without any really snappy quotes. The only major one being: “Suicide is a private thing.”
Once you’ve done two Heathers from the movie Heathers, you’re basically obligated to do the third Heather. I wasn’t going to go buy some yellow clothing (like a blazer) for this character that I would probably rarely wear again, so instead, I just utilized the few yellow clothing items I already had. It helps that the Heathers’ fashion sense goes beyond completely monotone outfits in all one color, so even though I am using a white suit jacket, the rest of the yellow pieces still pull it together.
Mustard Yellow Opaque Tights which I’ve had for many years, but I accidentally destroyed them during this photo shoot. 😬 #RIP

Prop 1: Yellow Croquet Mallet
I don’t know if I mentioned this yet, but croquet sets are expensive! To acquire mine, I participated in multiple online auctions to try to get a secondhand set in my budget. I lost many times before I successfully obtained one.
Prop 2: Yellow & Orange Cheerleading Pom Pom This was a free giveaway item at a roller derby bout I went to years ago and stored in my costumes tub until now.
Catch me back here tomorrow for another post.
