I've been watching Scream Queens recently, and from the opening shots of a girl walking through a 1995 sorority party with her hands covered in blood set to Bat for Lashes' 'What's A Girl To Do?' I loved it. This show is crass and ludicrous, but has such good pacing and clever one liners and perfect outfits that it extends its own campiness into something that feels bright and rich. It reminds me of the 2002 Scooby-Doo movie and also a bit of Glee, if it were funnier and spookier and more self aware.
The costuming is great. There are lots of pinks and pastels and silks and fuzzy fabrics. I can see a little chunk of early 2000s fashion influence (this is probably a big part of why it reminds me of Scooby-Doo). I'm reminded of body glitter and clear lip gloss. Ariana Grande slots nicely into it with her high ponytail and go-go boots. She guest stars as one of sorority house president Chanel's underlings. The cartoonish, gory bits of the show work well against a backdrop of cutesy and naive 2000s aesthetic. It's not the kind of show I'd usually watch, but I was really surprised with this and I love it.
