the best friends you’ll never have

Today I was thinking about how fun it would be to dress as a BSC member for Halloween. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough female friends who are willing to dress up as the BSC with me for the costume to really work. Have any of you ever dressed up as the BSC for Halloween? What did you wear? My ideas:

  • Kristy: Easy–her “uniform.” Levis 501s, white tshirt with “Kristy’s Krushers” on it, sneakers, baseball cap (preferably with a collie on it).
  • Claudia: I would just go to a thrift store a get some random crap, maybe some food jewelry
  • Mary Anne: a bit harder… khakis, maybe birkenstock clogs?, a preppy sweater…

  • Stacey: Something super stylish, lots of black. I think most people like to go as early, 1980s BSC rather than mid-nineties BSC. So maybe a bolero jacket with shoulder pads. So sophisticated!
  • Dawn: Something hippie. Maybe bell-bottoms and a peasant top. And of course 2 earrings in each ear.
  • Abby: Soccer uniform.
  • Mal: Horse sweatshirt and jeans.
  • Jessi: Leotard, legwarmers, jeans.
  • Shannon: Private school uniform.
  • Logan: Rugby shirt, jeans, stupid look on face.

    I’ve been trying to think of what to wear to work on Halloween, and dressing as a BSC member did cross my mind .. except that I don’t think that anyone will get it.

    I’m a little drunk from my pre-Halloween celebration, so let’s home this makes sense.

    I would be Mary Anne. I think she is the easiest person to dress. You just need a khaki (SP?) skirt or skort, some mary jane style shoes, knee socks, and either an oxfort shirt with a sweater, or a polo. There’s always pleated skirts and oxfords, and pigtails too.

    Or you could buy some fabric from johanns with famous city landmarks and make a famous city skirt. I saw some the other day when i was looking for yarn.

    But Mary Anne wouldn’t really be a costume, at least not for me. People would probably just ask about my hair. ;-|

    I’m cracking up at “stupid look on face.” Mal – red wig and huge glasses? Dawn – your suggestion sounds better than what sprang to my mind – a denim shirt with the tails out, jeans with the cuffs rolled up. Yup, California Casual for you, as so many of the covers have led us to believe!

    @bbb: actually your suggestion may be better. dawn rocked the denim shirt often–even her doll had it. i have to say i also had one, tricked as i was by dawn and her california casual ways. i wrote it with nature shirts and black leggings.

    at the last babysitters club movie party i went to (why yes, i have been to more than one of these in my life…), i decided that it was a costume party. i was stacey – i crimped my hair and wore black suit pants and an “oversized white men’s shirt,” and my then-boyfriend dressed up as logan (although i tried to convince him to be kristy). he didn’t so much dress up as logan as declare himself to be logan, really.

    Okay. I might have been the only one in the HISTORY of the world to have done this when I was in fourth grade.
    I was a mxiture of Stacey/Claudia since I thought they were sooooooooooooooooo cool. I had this …crazy ass ugly lookign long sleeved shirt, earrings, leggings (of course) and …weird earrings…that were really fugly.
    I was 3 days away from’ll forgive me right.
