Looking for Twin Peaks costume ideas for ladies? Go back to part 1 of this guest post by Amber! – Bethany
Obviously thrift stores are the perfect place to shop for Halloween costumes. Yes, they have the random rack of prepared costumes. But there’s no sport in that!
The only acceptable costume on this rack is the vampire cape…. and that is only okay if you’re dressing up as Mr. Weir from Freaks and Geeks. And if so, you’d better practice singing Monster Mash.
As great as the Weirs are, this post isn’t about them. This post is about dressing up as the dudes of Twin Peaks. I strongly believe the following costumes are so simple you may not have to shop for anything. Luckily, if you do, the items are readily available at a thrift store and require no modifications.
The two best Twin Peaks costumes for dudes are Agent Dale Cooper and BOB. Both of these characters are so iconic that you can wear them to any costume party and get recognized. Even better, they are comprised of wardrobe staples you most likely already own!
AGENT DALE COOPER
Dale Cooper IS Twin Peaks. I cannot imagine this show without Kyle playing him. He plays Dale as an incredibly determined man who wants to solve the mysterious death of Laura Palmer. He also brings happiness to viewers when he gives thumbs up for great news or sage advice about life over a cup of coffee. Did you know Dale Cooper originated Treat Yo Self? Check it out:
“Harry, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it. Don’t wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.”
