Hello Babettes! For Vlogmas Day 2 I bring you an amazing Faux Freckle how-to, mashed up in a full face makeup tutorial! I wouldn’t say I’m a faux-freckle expert, but I do have a few tip and tricks if you’d like to give it a go! [Read more…]
I’m so excited to share this “THE BREAKFAST CLUB” Cosplay Lookbook with you today! This started out as a way for me to live out my Molly Ringwald fantasy, and became a special tribute to my Mom, who loved this movie. It was a sentimental favorite for us, and it makes me tickled pink to be able to upload this on her birthday. Thank you for commenting and sharing, and if you’d like to see more, subscribe to my blog!
Claire Standish “The Princess”
I’ve wanted Claire’s outfit for as long as I can remember, and while I’m still on the hunt for that iconic pink linen deep v-neck, this cosplay is close enough to make my Molly Ringwald Dreams come true. The wig is an Arda Wigs Claudia in “Dark Copper” reused from my Steampunk tutorial from a few years back. I gave it a haircut and was so excited with how it turned out. The Pink Raglan top is from amazon, I pinned the sides up to give the rolled sleeve look. The skirt is Pinup Girl Clothing, Burgundy Midi, and I used two belts from my collection to get her layered belt look. The boots are Torrid– my favorite place for wide width boots. This look wouldn’t be complete without some diamond earrings, I got this faux set from Nordstrom, as well as this great bag
What I love so much about this entire cosplay is how easy it is to use things you already have, or will possibly use again. The main elements here are a Red Flannel, White Thermal or Tee, Gray pants, combat boots, with Red Bandana. You can rock one of Claire’s Diamond earrings, or his ear cuff, or both, go nuts man. I tea-stained the red bandana to make it look less crisp and new, and you could also add his gray coat if you’re fancy or it’s cold. He was really quite dashing for a thug. -Side note, rewatching this as an adult, I was struck by the character’s vulnerability and how evil the principal really was. Man I love this movie.
This is all pretty much my own clothes, I only had to buy the skirt and the bag. I was a total outcast in high school so I’ve always identified with Allison. The big to-do for this one was finding an appropriate wig, it needs to be a shaggy short cut, and I needed to be able to heat style it. That’s what I love arda wigs- those things can really take heat- just use a lower setting. I used Vegas in Spanish Brown, which is pin-straight and had a long piece for inventive cosplay. I cut off the long bit and texturized the hair by first curling and pinning in place and then using an iron the uncurl it leaving ti textured. The rest is pretty simple, a Black V Neck Sweater, Gray Tee, Black Scarf-printed is better but I only had solid, a Gray printed skirt, gray or black leggings, white socks, black sneaks and a big gray bag to stash all your shit in case you need to “book it”. Don’t forget the tampons. For extra points dump it out at parties.
What really excites me about this cosplay, is that I was able to include a Gwynnie Bee rental. I’m not the biggest fan of light-colored denim, so when these came in a recent Gb box I knew it was fate. For both this and the thief I did some “masculinization” makeup, but you could also do a gender swap- clearly I couldn’t hide dem boobs. The rest of this is pretty straight forward, Andy has the most “layers” of all the characters, so if you wanted to ditch one or two you’ll still be serving 80’s jock realness. I went with a white Tee, Blue Sweatshirt, Varsity Jacket, Light Jeans, White Sneaks. To really complete this look you could add the blue tank, patches on the varsity jacket, and a huge lunch in a paper bag.
Brian Johnson “The Brain”
I went for some light gender swapping on this one- I nearly went for a skirt and a nicer green sweater but it lost it’s novelty IMHO. I already had this blonde bob with from guess where? Yup Arda Wigs, though it appears unavailable at this time. I’m not sponsored by them, (I wish) I just love their selection and quality and the ability to heat style. This one is incredibly simple, it’s just Sweatshirt, Sunglasses, Khaki Pants, and My Husband’s blue Sneakers. To really complete this look you’d want to add a big digital watch but I plum forgot. Even better carry around a copy of the iconic letter.
Thank you so much for stopping by- let me know if you ever do a Breakfast Club cosplay, I’d love to see what you come up with. Let me know if you’d be interested in a Double Feature makeup tutorial for Claire/Allison and i’ll make it happen. Be Vintage or Tacky, but don’t you forget about me!

Sick of makeup palettes that over promise and under deliver? What if I told you I’d found a line of eyeshadows that knocked my socks off? OK this statement might be a little premature since I haven’t actually tried the entire line, but this Burnt Umber Palette from Makeup Atelier Paris is exceptional. Truly one of the best I’ve tried in terms of color payoff, blendability, smoothness on the eyelid and the texture decisions that were made for each color. The black in this palette is so smooth you will freak out! Add in a few of your favorite pink shadows and you’ve got the Peach Makeup Palette of our dreams. I need to collect more of these. I love it so much I used it on a a friends engagement shoot this weekend (she lives and breathes orange/peach). I was so blown away with the awesome look I modified it slightly to create this tutorial for you guys. I also used this new lash band hiding technique I learned from makeupby_alo on Instagram! Let me know if you’d like to see a more in-depth video on this new technique.
