This Halloween eve, I’ve finally achieved my 30-year-old dream of dressing up like ’80s pop star Adam Ant. Oh my God! I have costume dreams that are older than many fashion bloggers.
What Wendy Wore
Jacket: ModCloth (2010)
Shirt and sash: A couple of websites that sell pirate clothes
Leggings: American Apparel latex-look leggings (2007)
Boots: Michael Kors (pre-2005)
Ring: My own Juana Peekaboo Skull Ring
Hair: Julie Matos
Makeup: By a talented friend
I always imagined I’d wear a vintage Future Ozbek jacket with this costume but the right one never showed up at the right time. I did some research on real and replica Hussar jackets, and some of them cost $2,000, so that was out of the question. Luckily, ModCloth came through for me in the glittery jacket department.
For hair and makeup, I was guided by this photo, among others.

Here’s a 2009 article on Adam’s post-fame trials and tribulations. The photo of him with Jordan from Vivienne Westwood’s SEX boutique is a must-see.
