On July 20, 2001, the film Ghost World was released in NY and LA. It was written by Daniel Clowes (the creator of the comic book) and directed by Terry Zwigoff.
Here I am as the main character, Enid. In the film she was played by Thora Birch.
When I was searching for costume items, I found this t-shirt on indigofeet's Etsy store! Isn't it amazing?! Perfect recreation of the t-shirt in the film. You can get one too and check out the other great items she has!
The skirt came from Target and the suitcase was $6 at St. Vincent's. I got a green one too, but decided I liked the red better for the photo.
Thank you to Rick, who drove all over town with me looking for a bus stop that would work! He even looked up the actual film location, but learned that a bus stop was placed there for the movie and then taken away again.
This one is in Altadena in a spot that in way too sunny and shadowy all day long. So we got up at 6am today to take it. (It also happens to be overcast today, which is great!)
I'm typing a lot. Just one more thing, though...
This was in part for my friend Jimmy, who loves this movie too and who named his cat Enid.

In 1996, a new version of the Muppet Show called Muppets Tonight began airing! It didn't last nearly long enough, in my humble opinion.
My very favorite episode aired on April 4, 1996. It guest-starred Cindy Crawford. In one sketch, she plays a much younger version of herself, "Cinderella Crawfordopolis", the newest member of the Frogeteers! This has given me a chuckle every time I've remembered it for the past 14 years. :D
In it, Kermit asks her about her hobbies and she tells him that she likes to dress up in really pretty clothes and walk up and down her driveway. Teehee.
You can watch it if you go here and skip to 6:30...
Oh, lordy. I loved that show.
Oh, and you can get this hat at Sears. Who knew?!

On February 14 (Valentine's Day!), 1991, The Silence of the Lambs was released in US theaters. The film was directed by Jonathan Demme and starred Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins.
Which reminds me...I was at the NY premiere of Red Dragon in 2002. Sitting behind me the whole time? Ralph Fiennes. CREEPY! ;)
Thanks to Rick Baker for drawing the skull! And I found the moth at a paper store...
