The costume consists of items I found at a thrift shop that are ripped and distressed. Epsom salt and sugar are applied with Elmer glue and corn syrup. It is gross, sticky and uncomfortable but it was easy to apply and only had to last for a couple hours.
I know what I'm doing for Halloween!
Western Costume is a big costume rental place here in LA. They rent to all the movies studios, independent films, theatre designers, etc. Well, a couple of weeks ago they had a huge sale so naturally I was there at 8am to participate. While I got some great things for ridiculously cheap I saw the above dress. It didn't fit me so I put it down.
It turns out it was Betty Draper's dress from Mad Men! I'm re-watching season 1 and noticed it.
Why didn't I hold onto the dress?!?! I could never fit into it, but I still could have held it up to me and pretended I was a discontent housewife with a misogynistic husband. Blerg!
