 Pride, Part 2
Aired: 2003

Craig is first wearing a red tee – it doesn’t really matter what it says, because his shirts definitely scream “someone else dressed me” during this era. He tops it with a leather jacket, which he does pull off. And in gym he’s wearing a blue tee.

Craig is back. His hair is poofier. His jacket is still leather. But he IS upgrading to some graphic tees and sometimes some color. So… enjoy? I dunno.

Tears are Not Enough, Part 2
Aired: 2003

Okay, I’m here trying to blog like normal on WordPress’s new editor. Hope this turns out okay. We’ve arrived at the star of the episode, Craig. He’s still wearing a bunch of brown and darkness, both at school and his father’s funeral. Such an interesting situation to portray in this episode. Craig is glad his dad is dead, but he’s also completely hurt his daddy is dead. I was reading about this idea of the “mother wound” so I’m assuming there’s a “father wound” too. So like, Craig’s dad did not give him what he needed, but at the same time, Craig still looks to his dad to be that source of what he needs anyway. And of course, there were ways in which Craig’s dad did serve as a father. Food, clothing, shelter, maybe even a little bit of fun sometimes. Perhaps that contrast is what creates the wound. It is so strange to receive both sustenance & love, and abuse & criticism, all from your should-be nurturer. What a curious arrangement we humans live in. ANYWAY, last episode, when Craig finally decides to wear some color (a Hawaiian shirt), he has a breakdown. But the breakdown is the first step to getting better. Sorry I got a little bit off the fashion tracks there!

Craig’s color story, however boring, is appropriate. Even though he’s got a new life now, his past still haunts him. Also, literally because his dad pulls up at school. Anyway, my point is, his past still haunts him, and his style is still depressing. Ash is intentionally depressing,  mind you. Craig is unintentionally depressing, a sad style with no direction. Here he is in a variety of colorless regular boy clothes. The leather jacket is cool though. But generally Craig just perpetually looks like he just rolled out of bed, so I feel no desire to walk through his ensembles piece-by-piece.

How Soon is Now
Aired: 2003

This is the painful episode where Ellie is dying for Marco to reciprocate her love. Thankfully we get an Ellie fashion show while we endure the plot. First, she wears her floral British flag shirt with crimped hair and a headband. She wears it with a pleated plaid skirt and that grommet belt, and either leggings or skinny flare pants. Outside she wears a leather jacket. Oh, how I miss the feeling of cold air (it’s sweltering summer as I write this). The next ‘fit is a black boat neck sweater, beaded headband, frosty eyeshadow, and spiky/chunky necklaces. And the final outfit is a shirt of tans and blues, but that’s all we can make out of the ensemble.

If Ellie is accented with pink, purple, or red, I am happy. So today we get some nice purpley vibes incorporated into her look which consists of a leather jacket, an updo, and a pleated plaid skirt over some black flares.

Dressed in Black
Aired: 2003

Craig is wearing a navy v-neck sweater over a white tee… Then, a grey tee under what looks like a black denim jacket – and don’t worry, his hideous camera strap is back as his most outstanding accessory. In the woods he’s got.. a BROWN tee… under a navy v-neck.. and a black leather jacket. Ugh. I know these things are more accepted as “going together” these days but it still doesn’t feel right. And for the little skit he puts on with Ash, he literally (poorly) dresses like his dad, down to the glasses. Disturbing.

Message in a Bottle
Aired: 2003

I went a little crazy for this post because, well, this is one of my favorite Tracker ‘fits ever. It’s so ridiculous yet somehow he pulls it off. In layers, we have a brown long sleeve tee, a green flannel with the sleeves cut off, jeans, a leather jacket. And for accessories we’ve got a purple bandanna, and tiny classes with orange lenses. AND SOMEHOW THIS LOOKS COOL AS ALL GETOUT.

I’m only serving you one rando today but it’s definitely worth discussion. This biker dude is at Jimmy’s party. He hits on Terri, and then pulls Jimmy away from Ashley when he can’t locate the Creed CD. He wears an oversized studded leather jacket, and has long dirty looking hair. (Still better than Johnny DiMarco. Stay tuned.)

This is one of the greatest Ellie looks in my opinion but she’s only here giving us one line for one brief moment. She’s got an elaborate updo accented with a purplish color and many small braids. She wears a black leather vest over a red shirt. Her makeup is heavy today and she of course wears a lot of jewelry. So cool. Makes me want to spend more time on my appearance a little. I can’t make out what her bottoms are exactly but it looks to be a black skirt.
