Blue Wig and Sideburns Like Brillo Pads?

One of the more anticipated DVD releases is out now in stores, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Eternal Sunshine is the sort of movie that even while Cinecultist was watching it in the theater, we were imagining it in our DVD collection already. We imagine it will only ripen with further viewings. You can read our original ecstatic review here.

If you're a regular reader of, like Cinecultist is, you may recall that she loved the movie so much last March, that she said she was going to be Clementine for Halloween. Personally, having met Lindsay a bunch of times now, we think she would be a rockin' Clementine, she has all of the quirky, bubbly, goofy prereqs. And like CC, she also has much younger siblings, so the thought of planning the Halloween costume in March isn't really as bizarre as it sounds.

However, we probably wouldn't have remembered that off the cuff statement if she hadn't blogged just this week, that now she plans to be Joel Gion for Halloween, after having seen the docu DIG! about indie rock band, The Brian Jonestown Massacre. How's that going to work exactly? Blue or orange wig, zipped up hoodie and glued on brillo pad sideburns? (We think Gion's the one with the 'burns, as we haven't seen the blogosphere's favorite movie yet, but we hear they're into the facial hair.) Now that's an outfit we have to see.

Any movie or movie character inspired Halloween costumes for you? Leave them in the comments. (Don't worry, we can talk without reproach about Halloween now, as tomorrow is October. Crazy, no? Where did the summer go?)

Yes, I'm going to be Adam Kesher, the director in Mulholland Dr. I have to get the glasses (drugstore), the jacket (thrift store), bubblegum-pink paint (craft store), and black hair dye.

I was going to be David Byrne, but didn't want to invest in a Big Suit.

I'm sure few people will get it come the 31st. Last year I was Pat Garrett, as played by James Coburn.

I'm being Clementine from Eternal Sunshine. Can't decide what hair color to go with though. I'm thinking the blue hair with the blue sweatshirt with the horse painted on it and some uggs boots. The orange sweatshirt is probably most recognizable though. And of course the Rockville Center train schedule shoved in my back pocket.
