GRRRL SCOUT x PinoyTuner presents FRIGHT CLUB!!
It happens annually: I get so excited about Halloween and then I change my mind about my costume throughout the year. Right before the day itself, I come up with a half-assed last minute thing and get so disappointed with myself. Well this year, last minute as it was, I actually made an effort!! I made my costume FROM SCRATCH. So proud of myself, guys. I’ve never really sewn anything before. Haha.
In 2001, Bjork wore this swan dress to the 73rd Academy Awards (The Oscars). The world went crazy! She was ridiculed, she was praised, people couldn’t stop talking about it. So yeah, contrary to popular (younger) belief, I didn’t go as “White Chicks” for Halloween. LOL.
That’s where the joke stems from. Bjork got a lot of scathing reviews about her dress!
“She dances in the dark, and dresses there too. Let’s dub her ‘Alice in Blunderland.’” — Mr. Blackwell, creator of the Worst Dressed List
“Björk’s wraparound swan frock … made her look like a refugee from the more dog-eared precincts of provincial ballet.” — Jay Carr, the Boston Globe
“Probably one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen.” — Steven Cojocaru, TV fashion critic
“This girl should be put into an asylum.” — Joan Rivers
Well last year, the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art had an exhibit honoring the Icelandic singer and the dress was proudly on display. So these critics can suck it for bashing somebody who tried to go for something different on the red carpet.
ANYWAY ang haba ng sinabi ko. Here are photos by Gerard Del Mundo and Nicky Aureo from our Halloween gig!!
UGH BEST BAND COSTUME: Sandwich as NWA. Straight Outta Compton!!
LOVE IT!! Let’s make this an annual thing. If you missed it this year, I hope to see you next year!!:)
