Halloween Inspiration : Replicants
Posted on October 31 2012
Happy Halloween! This year, thanks to a transitional haircut, I have decided that the easiest costume for me to accomplish will be Daryl Hannah as Pris, one of the Replicants in Blade Runner. I already have white foundation and black eyeshadow from last Halloween's adventures in black-and-white/sepia-toned makeup, so all I need is some sheer black lingerie which, quelle surprise, I happen to have a lot of. I've also been eying the Foly Tights by Gerbe, so this is the perfect excuse to snap them up. If only I had held onto the studded collars and mutilated barbies of my post-punk/industrial teen years, I'd be set. But the great thing about this costume is that it's either immediately recognizable to those who have seen the movie, or not at all to those who haven't, so you don't need to work too hard at it. If you have a prudish brunette friend with a closet full of vintage clothing to play Sean Young's elegant character, Rachael, all the better!
