Day 11: Forrest Gump
I think Forrest Gump was my very first Tom Hanks movie. Or at least the one I remember seeing first. They say you never forget your first Hanks…well, they should say that! Because Tom is a national treasure. He’s one of those actors that is beloved by all. And if you don’t like Tom Hanks, then I truly question your very moral compass. How are you living an upstanding life if you don’t like The Hanks?! I ask you that!
I mean…I even named my cat after the incomparable Mr. Hanks. Look at that little face…
Don’t you think all cats should be named after him? Who are we kidding…name the dogs after him too. Are you having a baby? Let me offer you the name Tom Hanks…girl or boy! First name Tom, middle name Hanks! What better namesake could there be? Just look at how happy my cat is to bear the name of Hanks:
Ok, bad example. Tom Hanks, the cat, never actually looks happy. But I’ll bet he’s smiling on the inside, all because he’s named after the G.O.A.T…Thomas Jeffrey Hanks. And…actually Tom Hanks, the cat’s middle name starts with a J too, just like human Tom Hanks! But it isn’t Jeffrey, it’s Jamesfranco.
Alright, back to the cosplay. Here is my homage to one of human Tom Hank’s greatest characters:
Which movie was your first Hanks? Let me know in the comments or meet me on social media!! #MyFirstHanks
Day 29: Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad
Day 25: Rogue from X-Men comics
All of my green and yellow spandex was in the laundry today, so I chose my own mutant superhero colors. *wink*
Day 13: Lucy Ricardo from I Love Lucy
This one is for my sister-in-law, Caroline, who loves Lucy more than anyone I know! And for my little niece who was named after Lucy herself.
Day 11: Tinkerbell from Peter Pan
Day 10: California Mountain Snake from Kill Bill
I’ve done it. I’ve finally gone and joined the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. Don’t try to change my mind. The minute I put the eye patch on, I knew that my destiny was set. Can you blame me and my nerdy hair? We can’t help it!
Day 9: Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians
I had to go a little different direction with this one. I couldn’t find white hair spray and my white hair chalk failed me. But the two-tone effect is still there, making villainy that much easier!
Day 4: Marge Simpson from The Simpsons
Truth time, dear readers. This one was not done in the early hours of this beautiful Sunday morning. I did this one yesterday, knowing that having towering blue hair was probably not the best move for my Sunday schedule. First of all, I used a temporary blue hair spray. Which, while really fun to wear, is the kind of thing that would end up dripping rivers of blue once the Florida humidity hit. So I opted for a preemptive blue attack to the hair follicles.
What I learned is that I LOVE blue hair!! It’s so much fun. There’s actually still a little left in there today, if you look close enough. And I think when this series is over and I get a much needed haircut and color (goodbye roots!) I think I might make a blue a permanent addition to my hair! Thanks for the inspiration, Marge!!
