Halloween Inspiration Board: Clementine From “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” & 4 Other Character-Driven Costumes

Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s lookin’ for my own piece of mind; don’t assign me yours.

Michel Gondry’s riveting 2004 film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” has a special place in my heart. It manages to be all at once uplifting, darkly hilarious, and depressing in its aching realism. Jim Carrey (as Joel Barish) is like you’ve never seen him before, a rare, thought-provoking talent who feels, really feels, the deeeeep misery of anyone who has ever fallen madly in love only to have their heart shattered. His girlfriend Clementine, portrayed so effectively by Kate Winslet, is neurotic and impulsive, but you’ll soon learn that there is so much beauty to be found in instability. The disjointed manner of the film sees Clementine through a rainbow of hair colors, ages, and personalities, each more unhinged than the last. First, find out how to channel her cavalier, colorful persona this Halloween, and then check out four other character-driven Halloween costumes. Keep reading »

“I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.”

What could be more iconic than Uma Thurman’s turn as Mia Wallace in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”? The wife of mob kingpin Marsellus Wallace is instantly recognizable in the film’s famous promotional image which shows her laying lackadaisical on a bed, cigarette in one hand and pistol in the other. Beyond that, she plays a pivotal part in the film, and since its release there’s been mass imitation of the character’s darkly simple style. In the 17 years since “Pulp Fiction” first showed, nobody’s done the classic look better than the dance-crazed, drug-fueled Mrs. Mia Wallace. Her outfits from the movie are easily recreated, but channeling her attitude is another thing entirely. You’re on your own for that one. How to get everything else, after the jump! Keep reading »
