Wes Week: You Should Totally Be This For Halloween - Eli Cash
In honor of The Wes Anderson Collection book, we'll be showcasing costume ideas from some of our favorite Wes characters this week.
Wes Anderson films are a treasure trove of costume ideas because so many characters have distinctive, identifiable personal styles. But some Anderson characters have been overdone. (Richie Tenenbaum, amiright?) So why not venture out and try one of my all-time favorite characters, Richie's best friend and love-trangle-er, Eli Cash. Like anyone from The Royal Tenenbaums, Eli can be accomplished pretty easily with a couple trips to the thrift shop, but dedicated-ass Halloweeners will be particular to find the slightly smaller than average, sandy suede cowboy hat and the perfect fringed jacket. If you have a parent who was big in the line dance scene in the '80s, you might not have to shop at all. —Angelo
