DTNG FASHION S3E7:Should I Stay or Should I Go? Aired: 2003
Terri has NEW HAIR! She got some highlights. I love it. I just want to take a moment to say that while golden blonde is currently out of trend and now referred to as “brassy” because people prefer to err on the side of well, GREY?!, I adore golden, yellow, brassy, whatever blonde, and hope to put a touch of that in my own hair one day.
Okay, real talk. Is it just me or is Ellie acting REALLY weird and unsympathetic about Marco getting assaulted? I’m to this day still confused about this little bit. Okay, so as I understand it, Marco doesn’t tell people he got beat up for being gay. Apparently he tells people he got “swarmed for his shoes”. And up until this very moment, I thought he meant he got beat up because his shoes looked gay. Is he trying to tell people he got beat up so people could steal his shoes? See, all of this sounds absurd. So I guess I understand why Ellie doesn’t know how to act. STILL though, she could be a bit more loving.
Ellie wears layered black shirts with what seems to be a full-length skirt made of green and black patches. She wears a choker and is faithfully sporting the pigtail braids. I love pigtail braids but I feel like they make me look like a little girl every time I wear them. Next is more black layers, layers of necklaces, and some kind of orange skirt too. Her brows are looking very 2000s. And finally we get a small glimpse of whatever she’s wearing while Snake gets his head shaved. Can’t really make it out but there’s definitely a lime-green seam on her sleeve. Do y’all remember, especially Hot Topic clothes, would have those inside-out seams, oftentimes a cool color like that?
DTNG FASHION S3E2: Father Figure Part 2 Aired: 2003
Liz returns, serving midwife looks for us today. First, pigtails with clippies, and she’s sporting those skinny eyebrows too. She’s wearing.. what do you call this, a smock? And I’m sorry, but I find it incredibly disturbing that Shane was there for the birth. What do you guys think? Anyway, Liz then takes off her plastic suit and wears a horizontal striped zip up hoodie with khakis. I love casual khakis. Haha not really. Oh yeah, I also got a pic of this crazy antique camera for you.
S2E16: Message in a Bottle Aired: 2003
First Terri wears a beige hooded sweater, a long denim skirt, a ponytail, hoop earrings, and frosty eyeshadow. To the party, she literally wears the same skirt she wore to the dance in Season 1. I’m sure Paige would have had something to say about that if she were there. She wears it with a black top, dark wash jean jacket, cross necklace, and she took a crimper to her hair, which I always love to see.
S2E3: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Aired: 2002
We are gathered here in Spike’s macaroni orange home to view her ensembles for this episode. First she wears her hair either slicked back or combed back, and a scoop neck tee with half-length sleeves. And I’ll always remember her Elvis Costello outfit. I think I was like, an actual fan of it back in the day. It’s a set of matching shirt and pants. The shirt is a very pale blue ribbed tank that has this zipper down the front, and whatever you call this kind of neckline I don’t know. Then the pants are almost 70s-reminiscent, khaki and flared with a stripe down the leg in that matching blue color. I thought it was super cool. Oh god, I just realized, my last Snake post where they are making out at the end, that’s after the concert. Spike wore this cool getup to go the concert and Snake literally wore a teaching outfit. OMG.
For our miscellaneous shots today, I first grabbed this dude in a gingham shirt and also, like huge bright yellow shorts, a few other baggy outfits in the background. Then, is this wonderful example here, one of the best fashion moments from the halls of DCS – the dudes with the mullets. When Paige is asked, what is a mullet, she points to them and growls, “THAT.” And this dude on the right definitely has a prize winning mullet. And I think it’s a requirement that a mullet must pair with denim. And the dude on the left is like a rebel/punk kinda guy who actually looks a lot like Johnny DiMarco (but thankfully we don’t have to think about him for several more years). Then, Angie’s day care teacher is watching Craig who is definitely acting as creepy as possible – I captured her because she’s got those awesome skinny 2000s eyebrows, yes queen! As I’m writing this on the blog, it’s October, the month I indulge in shaving off my brows for costume purposes, so I’ve been having fun drawing those 2000s brows on my own face. And finally, Joey is trying to sell a car to this nice looking couple dressed in traditional cultural garb, which I will not even attempt to identify, but it’s beautiful.
Welcome back, Ashley! I love goth Ashley but it’s also bittersweet to know this is one of the last few times we’ll see “normal” Ashley. So, she’s still being shunned this year after taking ecstasy at the end of year party last year. She’s wearing this 3/4 sleeve top that has like, a scene perhaps? on the front but the sleeves are black. Her hair has gotten longer, and she still sports that cross body bag with her little phone tucked in the front pocket. Then we have a little shot of her wearing red, my favorite color on her.
S1E15: Jagged Little Pill
Wow, I can’t believe we’re already at the end of Season 1! And this episode is a whopper. I love it. And we kick off here with the star of the ep herself, Ashley. First she’s in a red v-neck long sleeve tee, and one of those zigzag headbands – and she’s let her mushroom hair out to breathe. (For the record, I call it a mushroom cut out of total admiration.) She completes the look with some black pants.
And then, for the party, she wears this navy tank, a grey wraparound cardi, a 90s lookin necklace, and a stupid waist apron that she never takes off even though she literally hasn’t cooked anything. But I guess they wanted her to have some kind of pocket to store her drugs in and lord knows women’s clothing don’t have any pockets. Her hair is fluffier than ever and she wears a spot of shimmery eyeshadow on her lids. Oh yeah I also got a shot of her nice grandma nails, holding that little ecstasy pill which she’s about to drop right down her throat to REALLY get the party started. And I can’t help but laugh every time she stumbles out of that bedroom after snogging (which I first tried to spell like ‘schnogging’) Sean. She FINALLY took off the apron, she untied her cardi, and her gigantic purple bra strap is hanging out. (Oh yeah, I’m pretty sure she took off the apron while dancing and spun it over her head like a helicopter.)
And finally, the next morning, she’s wearing her pajamas and slippers. I don’t know anyone that actually sleeps in those where I live. It’s too hot. Anyway, I love this episode because, well, Ashley really did screw up like painfully bad, but you also feel sorry for her.
