Day 24: GLOW
This is one of my new favorite shows from Netflix this year. A show about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, set in the 80’s (my favorite era!) If you haven’t seen this show yet, you should.
I didn’t chose a specific character to cosplay, I sort of did an homage to the whole genre. But I think the character I most resemble today is Betty Gilpin’s Debbie. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, it’s cause you didn’t take my advice yet and haven’t seen the show…what are you waiting for? Go watch it, I’ll wait!
Leotard & High Tops from Plato’s Closet
Headband from Sweaty Betty
With only 8 new episodes left in my web series, now is the perfect time to binge-watch all the episodes available and stay up to date for the final ones.
Take a look at last week’s episode:
Or start back at the beginning:
And don’t forget to check in tomorrow, because the plot thickens!!!
I know. I know. You don’t need a new show. You already have 7 that you just can’t miss. (Or is that just me?) But allow me to present to you Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. If Downton Abbey and Sherlock had a sassy love child, it would be Miss Fisher.
Meet Miss Phryne Fisher. Sassy, lady detective with a penchant for doing what she wants, when she wants and damn the consequences or danger! She is a modern women living in the 1920’s in upper class Australia. And she is truly fabulous from her clothes to her sleek bob to her devil may care attitude regarding convention.
Then there’s the very handsome and gentlemanly, Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. Love interest of Phryne who is constantly getting in the way of all Jack’s investigations causing the sparks to fly between them! Jack is a righteous man who always upholds justice, except when Phryne comes around and ruins all his efforts!
Next we have the adorable, budding romance between Phryne’s lady’s maid, Dot and Jack’s constable, Hugh. They are too precious for words. He’s a Protestant and she’s a devout Catholic. He’s a traditional man and she’s learning more and more about what it means to be a modern, independent woman. Which makes for adorable story!
The rest of the cast includes Cec and Bert, who are Phryne’s rough around the edges cabby’s who get the info from the rougher parts of town. Mr Butler who is Phryne’s butler, oddly enough. Aunt P is Phryne’s traditional high society Aunt who’s always shocked by Phryne’s shennanigans. Mac is Phryne’s lady doctor friend who throws convention to the dogs and helps Phryne when called upon. She also dresses in the most adorable pant suits. And finally Phryne’s ward, Jane. Taken in under Phryne’s roof along with Dot and any other young woman who may need some help.
In conclusion, this show is awesome and with only 2 series available on Netflix right now, it’s an easy binge watch. Give it a try and I dare you not to fall in love with it!
Thanks to my like-minded coworker, Emma for the recommendation!
Day 10: Phoebe Halliwell from Charmed
Back when the CW was the WB and teen dramas ruled that network, Charmed was one of the shows that led the charge. A story of three sister witches with a greater destiny than they knew. And a family lineage that would be discovered over the course of eight seasons. Alyssa Milano’s, Phoebe Halliwell, was the youngest of the trio before Shannon Dougherty’s character, Pru Halliwell, was killed off and Rose McGowan’s half witch/ half white lighter character, Paige, came on the scene. If you’ve never seen the show, do yourself a favor and power binge it on Netflix. It’s worth the watching! Even if just for Cole Turner/ Belthazor’s (Julian McMahon) tempestuous relationship with Phoebe.
This was a pretty easy style to accomplish. You need some big red flowers, a bunch of bobby pins and a sense of destiny about you!
Don’t forget to check back tomorrow. I’ve got 20 days to go.
