Based on: the outfit Amber Von Tussle wears in the original Hairspray
near the end of the movie at the Miss Auto Show pageant
Costume made: 2011
Worn at: the John Waters Christmas Special in Jacksonville, FL

About this costume:
I have always loved the original Hairspray so when John Waters brought his
Christmas special to Jacksonville it was time to dress up! Brema and I decided
to do the outfits from the end of the movie where Amber and Tracy have
their showdown at the Miss Auto Show. Amber makes up a dance called
"The Roach" and then Tracy shows up wearing a roach covered evening
gown and does "The Bug." We got to stay and take pics with the man himself!

How I made the costume:

My dress is a reworked vintage dress from the late '50s. I took it in and removed the straps and then
covered it in rhinestones. Brema made her roach dress from pink satin and painted on black glitter

Grey patent pumps

A dressy pearl necklace.

Hair & Make-up:
I wore false lashes with black liquid eyeliner and white eyeshadow. The wig is the Beehive Spitcurl by
Lacey Wigs in blond.
I couldn't find any really good reference photos online and had to rely on pausing the movie for reference.
