Heather Honey Giveaway


Have I told you about how I'm totally obsessed with Heathers? I love Heathers the movie. I love Heathers the Musical. I saw it twice, I'm so obsessed. I even unwittingly made the title card font one of my blog layout's main fonts. Whoops.

If you haven't seen this 1988 Winona Ryder / Christian Slater masterpiece, get on Netflix and go, go go! It's Mean Girls if Mean Girls was a dark, angsty, black comedy about murder, psychopathy, good vs evil, and teen angst. And the Musical is even better (in my opinion anyway. Really intelligent changes to the story-telling.) I hear a movie musical is in the works and I could not be more pleased.

Heather Macnamara, Heather Chandler, and Heather Duke in Heathers The Musical
This Halloween, one of my two Halloween Costumes taking me through Halloweekend is The Queen Bee, Heather Chandler. I kind of think I nailed it. I wish I had a Heather Mac and Heather Duke, but unfortunately, I do not live in an ideal world where everyone cares as much about Halloween and/or musicals based on movies that make me think a psychopathic Christian Slater is a total dream. Totally not one to romanticize a murderer, but let's be real, Christian Slater was a total hottie in '88, and I dig his character's dissatisfaction with the system. You know, just up until the point of murder.


How's my Heather Chandler bitch-face?

I had a ton of fun putting this outfit together. I might step up my shoes and skirt if I find something cuter. I also really want a rad collar brooch like in the musical. I was really torn between doing a Heather or Veronica (the main character, played by Winona Ryder), but when I was at the Thrift Store this blazer was dying to be bought. Here's a full body shot, minus the black flats. I really like costumes that can be incorporated into my wardrobe. I like to think of it as an excuse to expand my wardrobe. It's also fun for me to pick characters whose outfits I can interpret my own way.


white button-down - traded from a friend
collar chains - c/o Born Pretty Store
red cropped blazer - thrifted
black skirt with tulle - thrifted
red tights - LOFT (similar)
hair ribbon - gift (actually, the wrapping of a gift)


Anyway, it's giveaway time! I made a set of 6 Heathers bracelets. The three Heathers, plus Veronica, JD, and Martha Dunstock. Enter below for your chance to win!

  2. Love your outfit! You totally nailed it. And I hear you on the Heather's obsession. I think I watched it three times in a row the first time I saw it (gosh, that over 20 years ago, yikes). Christian Slater was such a babe.

  3. He's a total babe-- even now. I was so upset when that show he was in "Breaking In" got cancelled because I definitely need more of him in my life. Have you thought about what you're planning on being for Halloween?

  4. YES WATCH IT, IT'S SO GOOD! And then after, hit up youtube to listen to the songs from the musical-- SO AMAZING.

  5. No clue. I usually leave it to the last minute because I never think I'll have anywhere to wear a costume and then something comes up. I guess at worst I can just bust out my Delsin cosplay, although I'd really like to go as Lily Munster if I could get it together in time.
