On May 13, 2011, the cinematic landscape was forever changed by that cute little movie about friends, weddings and bowel incontinence. Other than a couple “Saturday Night Live” cast members and the lead guy from “Mad Men,” that cute little movie starred a bunch of relatively unknown—and, up until that time, unappreciated—actors and actresses. Yet, at the end of the day, that cute little movie went on to make over $288
billion million at the box office and finally prove to film studios executives it was okay for women to be depicted as smart, funny, beautiful and a little gross. Call it the “Bridesmaids” Effect.

I only recently discovered the amazing phenomenon that is “Friday Night Lights,” and more specifically, the glorious perfection that is Connie Briton as Tami Taylor. I told Amelia I wanted to be Tami Taylor for Halloween and hopefully win some kind of costume party prize for Least Timely Pop Culture Reference, but then Amelia threatened to dress up as Amelie and steal my crown. Bitch. Anyway, just in case you’re looking for a costume idea that’s neither current (like these internet obsessions) or cheekily retro, but instead falls awkwardly into the pop culture gulch of the past few years, well, click through for some delightfully outdated ideas…
