I bet you didn’t know this, but Pee-wee Herman and I have a lot in common.
Peewee’s Big Adventure was made in 1985. I was born in 1985.
We both have signature fashion accessories:
We both like Cyndi Lauper. (The show’s theme song is by Cyndi Lauper. But she was credited as Ellen Shaw.)
Okay. So. We don’t actually have anything in common. But I could dress up like him if I wanted to. For, you know, fun. And so can you. On June 25, we’re showing PeeWee’s Big Adventure as part of our Summer Night’s Film Series outdoors at the IMA, and we’re encouraging everybody to come in dressed as their favorite PeeWee character.
To get your mouths watering, we decided to hop around the museum and snap some “look-kinda-alike” photos of our very own IMA staffers. (Click here to see the full Flickr set)
Heh. Let’s just say some were more willing than others.
So tonight: “Get outta bed, there’ll be no more nappin’! ‘Cause you’ve landed in a place where anything can happen.” Oh, and don’t forget your red bowtie.
