By now, you should've figured out that Halloween is something I take pretty seriously. I've actually been planning this costume for a little over a year but couldn't get it made in time. (Yes, that means the Goodburger costume was 2nd choice to this.)
Bring It On! was such an important movie for me growing up. Since I did cheerleading for a good chunk of my grade school career, it was quoted like bible verses amongst everyone on every single squad I've ever been on.
So I had a East Compton Clovers cheer uniform custom-made for the occasion. I originally was trying to buy the official wardrobe from the film but had a hard time tracking it down.
I really loved Natina Reed's (RIP) character "Jenelope" even though everyone kept calling me "Isis"/Gabrielle Union.
"You've been touched by an angel, girl!"
Just wanted to rep for the cool black girls that do cool things that often go overlooked. The Toros stealing the East Compton Clovers cheer routines is a prime example of cultural appropriation at its finest.
"Tried to steal our bit, but you look like shit when we're the ones who were down with it!"
Go Clovers! Go Clovers! Go Go Go Clovers!
Sidenote: I have no clue how I can top this for next year but we'll see.
Dance break cause the soundtrack was essentially the shit!:
