Wendy Torrance Costume – The Shining
While making your own Wendy Torrance costume requires a few more items than other The Shining costumes it is certainly worth the effort. With that said a Wendy Torrance costume is still easy to make and cheap. It is also a ridiculously awesome and cool couples costume. Here is everything that is needed to make your own Wendy Torrance costume.
Wendy Torrance Knife
|You have several choices of props when making The Shining costume.
Your first choice of prop is to carry a knife just like Wendy in the movie.
Obviously, we would not recommend carrying a real knife. Instead we would advise a replica rubber knife.
Wendy Torrance Baseball Bat
|If you do not wish to use a knife as part of your Wendy Torrance costume there is another option.
You could choose to use a baseball bat instead which she is seen using to defend herself against her husband.
There is no specific type of baseball bat that you will need as long as it is full size.
Wendy Torrance Dress
|As part of your Wendy Torrance costume the dress you will need is very specific.
The dress worn by Wendy is an overall style dress. It is very much like a dungaree style dress.
It is a light brown in color and made from corduroy material.
Wendy Torrance Turtleneck Sweater
|Very typical of the fashion trends at the time when The Shining was filmed Wendy is seen wearing a turtleneck sweater. You will require one for your Wendy Torrance costume.
The turtleneck that Wendy wear in the movie is a very light brown or beige in color. It also appears to have a collar that is folded over. Almost as if she were to unfold it then it would cover her face.
Wendy Torrance Shirt
|Wendy wears a long sleeve, green checked shirt under her dress but over her turtleneck sweater.
For your Wendy Torrance costume you will need a similar style shirt which you should wear in the same fashion.
Make sure the top two buttons are unbuttoned.
Wendy Torrance Robe
|A robe is not essential to making your own Wendy Torrance costume. However, in some of the most dramatic scenes of the movie she wears a blue robe over her regular clothes.
Personally, while a blue robe is optional to The Shining costume we do feel it is a nice touch and makes the costume more recognisable.
Wendy Torrance Boots
|Viewers struggle to get a clear view of the boots that Wendy wears in The Shining.
However, when we do catch a glimpse we see that they are flat soled boots.
They appear to be light brown in color and slightly higher than what would be considered ankle boots.
Wendy Torrance Pantyhose
|In the scenes where Wendy is seen wearing her dress you can see that she wears pantyhose.
The pantyhose that she wears are white or cream in color and are quite thick opaque style pantyhose.
Pantyhose are the final finishing touch to your Wendy Torrance fancy dress.
