Scott Pilgrim Style Guide

As my birthday quickly approaches in January I am more determined than ever to have the greatest Scott Pilgrim themed birthday party OF ALL TIME. I was talking to Mariela and our homegirl Carina about it this weekend and got stuck trying to explain the aesthetics of Ramona Flowers, Scott Pilgrim’s Girlfriend. Originally I was going to send them a few of the following pictures but since I’m trying to get as many people dressed as Scott Pilgrim characters for the party I thought I’d post this as a handy inspirational guide to Scott Pilgrim costuming. First up: The one and only Ramona Flowers!

And here are some photos taken by Edgar Wright from the set of the Scott Pilgrim movie with Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers.

Sadly there are not a whole lot of Kim Pine looks out there on the web. Since Mariela has cute-ass freckles I always thought she’d make an awesome Kim Pine.

And now some Kim Pine photos from the Scott Pilgrim movie with Alison Pill as Kim Pine.

And last but not least we have Knives Chau, the most dangerous tenderoni to ever walk the Earth. Sadly, there is also a lack of Knives looks out there was well. Here is what I could find.

Without further ado here is Ellen Wong as Knives Chau in the Scott Pilgrim Movie.




A Salute to Knives Chau

At the moment, Knives Chau is my favorite fictional character. I’ve been reading the Scott Pilgrim books (in reverse order) and I’m totally taken with the series. As much as I identify with Scott Pilgrim (and his task of beating up his girlfriend’s evil exes) I’ve got a special place in my heart for Scott’s jilted tenderoni Knives Chau.

Knives represents Scott’s one act of cold hearted cruelty, their relationship and Scott’s decisions are part of what makes the series of books somewhat realistic, complex, and very interesting. I’m convinced the series will become bibles of hipster masculinity and Scott Pilgrim will be the new hipster male ur-type.

In the upcoming Scott Pilgrim movie Knives is being played by Ellen Wong. Above and below are images from Director Edgar Wright’s Flickr page of Wong as Knives. I’m totally ready for this movie. Tenderoni ahoy! Mariela will probably kill me for saying this but Knives is at the top of my names list for future spawn. Knives Yañez has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
