When I first started writing these Twin Peaks Style posts, I thought I’d have a fairly easy time choosing which characters to look at and how to look at them. First I wrote about the way Audrey Horne and Josie Packard use clothing in attempts to hide their true colours, in turn revealing more about themselves than they could have ever imagined. Then I looked at how Special Agent Dale Cooper‘s wardrobe represents his fear of the past and his attachment to the town of Twin Peaks. But now what?
It seems only natural that for my third and final post in this series, I should study another character — maybe Donna Hayward or Lucy Moran — but I just can’t do it. This series (much like Twin Peaks itself) can’t go on forever, and there are so many characters whose unique and complex wardrobes I’d kick myself for leaving out. So, on that note, I’m leaving you with a round-up of sorts. I’ll miss obsessing over these images and outfits just like I miss standing up and turning on all the lights in the house after each gut-wrenching episode. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end.
LUCY MORAN: THAT’S MOR-AN, NOT MORON
“All men in the world should be taken to a desert island and forced to eat sand!”
DICK TREMAYNE: LUCY’S EX-LOVER AND PROFESSIONAL IDIOT
“I say! I don’t believe we’ve met. Richard Tremayne. Horne’s department store. Designer fashions.”
DONNA HAYWARD: THE OLD BEST FRIEND
“As much as I love you, Laura, most of the time we were trying to solve your problems. And you know what? We still are… You’re dead Laura, but your problems keep hanging around!”
DOCTOR LAWRENCE JACOBY: THE PSHYCHO(THERAPIST)
“Laura had secrets and around those secrets she built the fortress that, in my six months with her, I was not able to penetrate.”
SHELLY JOHNSON: THE DINER’S MISTRESS
“Do you want some more pie? A whole pie?”
And last, but certainly not least…
LEO JOHNSON: THE SCARIEST MAN YOU’VE EVER SEEN IN A COSBY SWEATER
“Leo needs a new pair of shoes.”
