Get This Look: Twin Peaks

1. Log Lady

Poor psychic Margaret. She lost her husband to the devil the night of their wedding, as is perhaps the norm in the town of Twin Peaks. When detective Dale Cooper arrives to assist in solving the murder of area teen Laura Palmer, he's guided by his dreams, which are more like visions, and Margaret, or Log Lady, as she's known about town, helps by handing him grim bon mots courtesy of, she says, her log, which can be found cradled in her arm like a big, jointless baby. Additionally, she has a thing about chewed up wads of gum. But who doesn’t, really?

2. The Giant

The Giant appears to FBI agent Dale Cooper in his vision-dreams, and he comes, in season one, with clues regarding Laura Palmer's death and the identity of "BOB," masked as riddles. In season two, he shows up AND VERY EMPHATICALLY IMPLORES DALE (see above) NOT TO LET ANNIE COMPETE IN THE MISS TWIN PEAKS CONTEST. Thus proving that "too opaque" and "too transparent" are both bad things to be. Also, on earth he is embodied by a waiter who doesn’t understand what it means to see someone bleeding out on the floor. Because this is a series brought to us by David Lynch.

3. Agent Dale Cooper

Agent Dale Cooper is the beating heart of Twin Peaks. A stalwart, honest, odd-as-balls FBI agent with a dark past, he arrives in Twin Peaks as an antidote to the dark pall Laura Palmer’s death has cast over the town. Cooper wears his heart on his sleeve, and his adherence to Tibet-inspired deduction proudly. His passion for life, and for the small town he’s chosen as a second home, are matched only by his passion for a cup of hot, black joe. Sure, we could get annoyed that Kyle MacLachlan let his then-girlfriend (Lara Flynn Boyle) talk him into vetoing Cooper’s relationship with Audrey, but the universe has a way of righting all ills, and thus was it that Kyle MacLachlan starred in Showgirls.

I think I love the owl watch.

fondue with cheddar

@coolallison Me too! AND THE SHOOOOOES

Bittersweet

@coolallison Owl Watch! Serious coveting going on here. There is also a howling wolf watch, though that might be more appropriate for "GTL - Leland Palmer."

Liz81

@coolallison I also love the owl watch! The owls are not what they seem.

Apocalypstick

@Liz81 They're only flowers.

Lets get it.@v

I always coveted Audrey Horne's look. How can I get that look? (Aside from extensive plastic surgery to look like Sherilyn Fenn).

Amphora

@Katie Walsh The easy way is to put on dark lipstick, pout, and stare blankly into the middle distance while twirling.

Mae
Mae

@Amphora Do this, and also wear ankle socks with loafers.

Gleemonex

@Katie Walsh And have your grandmother make you a green plaid pleated wool miniskirt, and also get a turtleneck, plus use eyebrow pencil to make a beauty mark like hers. Halloween 1991(?) and 2003, y'all!

P.J. Morse

@Katie Walsh Saddle shoes for the win!

Heat Signature

@Katie Walsh You will also need a cherry stem.

sceps yarx

@Katie Walsh make sure your wool skirt comes to your natural waist. And hit on older men.

Katie Walsh

@sceps yarx @Heat Signature @P.J. Morse @ Gleemonex @ Mae @Amphora: I will do all of this yes! Loafers, ankle socks, short sleeved sweaters, pleated skirts, SADDLE MOTHERFUCKING SHOES. Beauty mark I already have.

Megasus

Log Lady doesn't have ENOUGH wooden/branch inspired jewellery, in my personal opinion.

Amphora

@Megasus It's looog, looog, it's big, it's heavy, it's wood!

anachronistique

@Amphora It's lo-og, it's lo-og, it's better than bad, it's good!

log lady

@Megasus agreed!

parallel-lines

Someone please get Leo's look, right down to the greasy ponytail and broke down long haul rig.

log lady

@parallel-lines I want Shelly's look, and by look I mean wavy beautiful mermaid hair

Hellcat

@parallel-lines Of course, you'd also need some "new shoes."

PatatasBravas

I am convulsing with love for this series.

raised amongst catalogs

@PatatasBravas Does it look like this?

Lucienne

Thank you for not including BOB.

No, for real.

Is it wrong that I'm dying to wear the Log Lady look?

Seriously, it's adorable.

laurel

@bonymaroni That dress.

fondue with cheddar

@laurel That everything, pretty much.

up cubed

@laurel if you look at the dress too long it will look back at you.

Ames

@bonymaroni I LOVE it.

inglenook with a book

Um, this is perfection. I would love to see a part two!

narwhalsandwich

you have no idea how long I've wanted to dress like Log Lady. this is wonderful.

log lady

@narwhalsandwich so wonderful!

I kid you not, in high school I dressed as the Log Lady for Halloween. I had woodshop that semester (which was billed as 3D Art, but turned out to be quite fun) and the teacher sawed off a chunk of the log to make a business card holder. I'd forgotten all about it!

owlegg

@Carrie W. I dressed as the Log Lady for Halloween this past year! Mostly it just confused people, but the ones who got it loved it.

Carrie W.

@owlegg Few people knew who I was, even in the 90s, so I'm impressed that anyone recognized you last year! One year in college I was the Olivia Newton-John character from Xanadu. Another girl was, too, and she made a "Xanadu" sign to hang around her neck. Cheating!

iceberg

Oh my god you guys the Tumblr.

pterodactgirl

@iceberg I know! I want to dress like tongue now.

DoMark

@iceberg The shoes featured for the Tooth are perfect. Also, the awkward rubberized trip-fall would be a sight to see.

royaljunk

oh my gosh I would wear absolutely everything in Log Lady's look.

I've always wanted to dress like Audrey Horne but fear I'm too blonde. STYLE ICON. (and also kiss Special Agent Dale Cooper)

royaljunk

@royaljunk a good 80% of my Twin Peaks experience is admiring how cute early-90s Kyle Maclachlan is

whizz_dumb

@royaljunk That's funny, I've always wanted to dress like Agent Cooper but fear I'm too...not a G-man(?)--and also kiss Audrey Horne.

Lucienne

@royaljunk Watching Twin Peaks is always sort of confusing for me because it makes me freaked out, turned on, and hungry.

royaljunk

@Lucienne omg I must have sweets and coffee while watching Twin Peaks. MUST.

THIS MUST BE WHERE PIES GO WHEN THEY DIE!

hallelujah

Those glasses, but for real. Get on my face!

Guys! I'm so excited about this post. To TRULY get my look, though, you'll need one of these: http://bit.ly/Yqr1wM

I LOVE THIS SERIES BUT THIS INSTALLMENT TAKES THE CAKE.

Lisa Rae Swan@twitter

This article needs a "Bob" look.

planforamiracle

I go to a Twin Peaks costume party every year! First I went as Audrey and last time I got a bit lazy and went as Hawk (Canadian tuxedo, one dangly earring). So many fun possibilities!

Also I really, really love that gif of the giant.
