Welcome to the Sixties! When John Waters brought us the world of Hairspray back in 1988 it just blew my mind. The music, the comedy, the fashion, and the hair. We get introduced to Tracy Turnblad who would have been voted the least likely to be a heroine of any story let alone her own  but Waters changed all of that. He took a non-popular, chubby girl and made her a star. She was feisty, brave, and told it like it was. That's my kinda girl. And that's why I decided to dress up as Tracy Turnblad for Halloween.

Its safe to say my look is an vintage nerd inspired rendition of Tracy Turnblad. I grabbed a few pieces from my everyday wardrobe, teased my hair a bit, and grabbed my 8x10 frame photo of the dreamy Link Larkin and channeled by inner Tracy.

Hairspray (1988) was loosely inspired by John Waters life in Baltimore in the sixties. He ironically related to Tracy most of all and I don't blame him. Who can't relate to looking different and wanting to live their life according to their own truth? That's Tracy in a nutshell.

A few years after the original film came out it  inspired a broadway show that I was lucky  to see once. After that success it spawned into a a movie musical in 2007 and then a live show in 2016. Hairspray is just a whole lot of fun combined with a message about staying true to who you are no matter what obstacles lie ahead.

And so on this Halloween I bring you Tracy Turnbland. I even found a vintage 1960's pumpkin to go trick or treating in. Now only if I can convince Link to come along?
