Oh. My. God! I was so excited to see Addams Family values on the big screen! Honestly, I think its better then The Addams Family (1993). So when I saw Cinespia was doing a special Thanskgiving screening I just about died. I haven’t seen the movie screened since I originally saw it!
I went to an amazing opening night party at Nerdmelt Showroom, the NOMO FOMO Broad City Art Show! And I knew I had the perfect cosplay!
I love love love this movie! It doesn’t screen nearly enough! When I saw Street Food Cinema scheduled it I bought my tickets, about, 3 months early.
And I finally got to make an idea I had for for-ever! Michelle WineBerger wine labels! Download the pdf label below for your own Romy and Michelle party!
Writers note: Seriously I have had my ‘Michelle’ dress since 8th grade when I wore it my graduation dance. Circa 1997. Sooooo there! 🙂

The Alcove in Los Feliz has started monthly screening and I went to Almost Famous!
They even do themed cocktails! I loved it! Definitely going again!
Ugh, I hate this part of growing old when you realize how old a movie is. Can you believe The Craft is 20 year sold!?! My boyfriend hosted an anniversary screening at The Cinefamily in West Hollywood.
We are the weirdos, mister.

Cather in the Rye (10550 Riverside Dr, Toluca Lake, CA 91602) is an adorable Library themed bar in Toluca Lake. They had a Harry Potter themed night for the opening of Harry Potter World at Universal City.
I always wanted to Harry Potter cosplay so I went a little crazy! 🙂 I sewed the yellow/red sweater detailing, and printed the Gryffindor patches on Printable fabric. Wand and glasses were an easy Amazon buy.
I went to the 2nd Annual Planet of the Apes Day at Idle Hour in NoHo (4824 Vineland Ave). Can you believe they didn’t plan a themed drink! I found Monkey Shoulder at the bar. Thank god!
I went to an awesome Enchantment under the Sea Dance hosted by April O’Neil for the Michael J Fox Foundation.
I’ve been working hard on my felt patterning, so I figured a themed poodle-skirt-style felt dress. I watched the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance scene and took note of all dance decorations. Color, shape, etc. I am proud to say all colors, no matter how strange or ill matching, are true to the movie. So basically, my skirt itself is an Enchantment Under the Sea Dance. I made an inspiration Pinterest board here.
- For the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance sign I used printable fabric. And recreated the sign in Photoshop.
- The “leash” rope is a simple green braided rope.I cut off small pieces for the small vines coming off the main one.
- Felt Detailing:
- Red and Grey Vines with Pink Gems
Here’s some dance stills I used for color matching.
