I LOVE Halloween. I was Suzy Bishop from Moonrise Kingdom, one of my favorite Wes Anderson movies, for Halloween two years ago, and it’s one of my favorite costumes to date. I’d recommend watching the movie (I believe it’s still available on Netflix) and listening to Françoise Hardy’s “Le Temps de l’Amour” on repeat if you really want to get inspired. Side note: I got super into 1960s french pop music after seeing this movie.
I didn’t intend on being Suzy, it actually happened when I was searching for the perfect Courtney Love costume at The Garment District in Cambridge, MA. I ended up finding a pink and purple dress with a peter pan collar from the 60s and I decided that, if it fit, I was going to be Suzy! The dress ended up being too long, but I was able to tuck the extra length under the dress and pin it to the length I wanted, which was fine for the night. My boyfriend, Dan, went as Sam Shakusky, and he was just as excited as I was – probably because he got to wear a Davy Crockett hat.
