Vampires of the World Beware



I was just watching this music video by The Divinyls, which reminded me of this outfit that I made 10 years ago. Can you believe that? There is proof that I used to have a slim waist line. Proof that I was a Buffy fan way back when.


So what is the story behind this photo? Let us cast our minds back to the Spring of 2000… Some friends and I decided to celebrate Halloween in the true spirit. We would dress up in costumes that would strike fear into the hearts of any sane person, and in this attire we went to the cinema on Halloween, and watched a film — The Dish.

In under a few hours I sewed up this outfit, which is the cheerleader uniform worn by Buffy in the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer film.

So the big question: In this photo, is this a tragic or a proud dress up moment for me? A little bit of both. I should of kept the costume. ;)
