Casual Cosplay: Audrey from Twin Peaks

I only recently became drawn into weird world of David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Mr. Fancy subscribed to Netflix recently and he suggested that I watch it, and to be honest I was intrigued by all the fuss around it (I also tend to think young Kyle Maclachlan is a bit if a damn fine cup of coffee but that is really beside the point).

Upon watching the show I was instantly drawn to the character of Audrey. The saucy teenager, who repeatedly tempts the good hearted Agent Cooper, has impeccable style even in that nightmare period that was the early 1990s.

With her retro glamour hair and make up and her classic outfit choices she makes for a fantastic style inspiration.

So one cold day I decided to dress in an Audrey inspired manner.

I have finally lost enough weight that I can get into my vintage plaid (or tartan) green skirt which was exciting enough but when paired with a little boat neck sweater and a nice coat things were starting to seem quite Audrey.

I decided to emulate this look a little further by pinning my hair into a sort of bob. With varying degrees of success but I think you get the idea.

Now this was just an inspired by outfit not an outright cosplay. To change this I would have curled my hair in advance before pinning it up worn a white sweater and added some black and white brogues or bowling shoes.

But all I'm all I don't think it was a bad effort.


  1. I love Twin Peaks, although I gotta be honest, it freaked me out a little! You can definitely see the Audrey influence in this outfit. You're so good at doing fancy hairstyles x

    1. It freaks me out too but I've been enjoying it too. I'm not sure this hairstyle is fancy but I've had it cut so I want to have another go at replicating Audrey hair.

  2. Ah, I've never heard of Twin Peaks but the style really suits you! :)

    Good Morning Angel.

    1. Twin Peaks is an acquired taste in television but it is very interesting to watch, if quite weird. I'm a little bit addicted to the plaid now so I'm glad it suits me!
