SPECIAL AGENT DANA SCULLY
is my all-time favorite television show, which I watched religiously for nine years. I rarely become obsessed with a TV program, but from age 11 to 20, my Sunday nights revolved around the adventures of Mulder and Scully. Scully was somewhat of a role model for me; I admired her intelligence, strength, shameless nerdiness, and her "I'm wearing fuck me shoes and a fuck you attitude" demeanor. I always knew I would eventually cosplay Scully.
The white button up shirt, suit jacket, suit pants, and requisite 3-inch black pumps were all in my closet as part of my regular work wardrobe. However, a red henna wig with a bob cut from Karen's Wigs, a plastic handgun, and a gold cross necklace from the dollar store gave my boring ensemble a very Scully look. I made FBI ID cards for both myself and my boyfriend
by taking scans of the show's IDs off the internet, resizing them, and printing them out for plastic pouches we clipped onto our suit jackets. Sketch also found little wallet IDs and I made scans of Mulder and Scully's FBI badges as well, which we enjoyed flashing at Dragon*Con.
