The Devil’s Rejects: Vera-Ellen “Baby” Firefly

I hope you didn’t get the impression that this is a family-friendly blog due to the previous posts about animated films. I don’t want to misrepresent myself. I started this project last year to put together an outfit every day in the month of October to recreate characters from horror movies with stuff I already owned. A few other Halloween movie characters were part of it last year, and this year I have expanded slightly too. We’re circling back to the crux of it with this post.

It is no stretch to say that The Devil’s Rejects is Rob Zombie’s best film (and the soundtrack is amazing!). Between the actors in it, the film references, and even some of the plot points, the allusions to other horror films (and true crime as well!) are layered. When you look at it from an homage angle it is much easier to view it as a culmination of horror influences and harder to just say it is a ripoff of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre X The Hills Have Eyes. However, after recreating Erin Hardesty from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre last year, I will say that this outfit for Baby Firefly is very similar!

A white tank top, straw cowhand hat, and distressed jeans on a dress form. A pair of tan gaucho boots are in front on the floor.

Outfit: Since Baby Firefly’s shirt has embroidery detail on it, I picked this Beaded White Jones New York Signature Tank Top as the closest item from my collection. I just tucked it under a bit to show some of my skin between the shirt and jeans, since I wasn’t willing to cut the waistband off the pants.

Distressed Old Navy Diva Bootcut Jeans I will most likely create a separate post on how I altered these jeans for this look. In retrospect, I could’ve gone harder on the holes, but I like how they turned out overall.

Shoes: Tan Coconuts by Matisse Gaucho Boots that I got for a steal secondhand.

Accessories: Black Leather Johnny Cash Folsom Prison Bracelet with Snap Enclosure This was a gift from my dad (before I went no contact) when we still tried to bond over things like football and music.

In 1978, I live with my family in Ruggsville, Texas. We have a pretty unconventional life, but we like to hunt together.

I wake up one morning, and the pigs have us surrounded. As some of the family participates in a shootout, I escape with Otis.
