I love Tarantino movies and ironically this October marked the 25th anniversary of the release of Pulp Fiction.
That being such an impressive anniversary, I figured dressing up at Mia Wallace and Vincent Vega would be the perfect costumes for Caleb and me this Halloween!
My Costume for Pulp Fiction Mia Wallace in the Diner Scene
I found a costume wig on amazon and I chose this one based on the reviews. I did trim the bangs just a little to make it match the shorter length of hers.
Nothing crazy here, just a white button-down blouse. I found mine at Kohls in the women’s department. They also sell them at Amazon, if you’re looking for something on Prime.
I loved this explanation of her white blouse from Betsy Heimann, the costume designer of Pulp Fiction, “So I envisioned her sitting there having the milkshake with Vincent, being a little seductive with that black wig—Quentin’s vision was that Mia would look like the old silent movie star, which she very much did, of course—and I’m thinking, ‘Well, you want a little cleavage.’ We also want to see, if it happens naturally, the bandeau top underneath. Because later Vincent’s gonna rip that shirt off and plunge the needle into her.”
Did you know she wore cufflinks? She does.
Cruelty-free and it is hypoallergenic – I love this Elizabeth Mott mascara and I love even more that its part of Amazon Prime!
I just played around and blended various shades from my palette.
OPI Red nail polish is nearly identical to what Mia wears in the movie.
I think Mia’s lip color in the diner scene is more of a rusty red, rather than a true red. I found this long-lasting lip stick and I might even wear it when I’m not being Mia.
Mia overdoses on Heroin and gets a bloody nose. More blood is coming out of her right nostril and there is just a little bit in her left. I liked this fake blood because it coagulates like real blood and it was easy to clean off.
I ordered mine on Amazon. They are the Amazon Essentials brand and are super comfortable – way better of a shoe than I imagined. *Most people think that Mia wears black high heels at the diner, but she is actually wearing a pair of Chanel gold flats. She does wear black shoes in the movie posters though.
***She also wears a paisley print bralette, but I live in Wisconsin and is COLD here, so I just wore a black bralette with a black tank underneath the white blouse.
Here is Us as Mia Wallace + Vincent Vega; October 26, 2019 heading to Kayla + Todd’s Halloween Open House party!
