for halloween I want to go as one of the cheerleaders in Nirvana`s Smells Like Teen Spirit video. Does anyone remember this? I`m thinking black cheerleader-ish top and skirt, fishnets, and pompoms.
I`ve tried searching online for photos from the video, or ideally the entire video, but I`ve had no luck so far. Does anyone have any ideas? Help!
Also, any ideas on how to make pompoms?

Hey. I just downloaded the video off of winmx. The cheerleaders are wearing like a black tank top? Definitely looks more like a black one piece bathing suit with a big red anarchy symbol on the left of their chest, an A with a circle around it. A black full skirt with small pleats all around. I don't see any of them wearing fishnets.. Umm they all have tattoos on their arms, maybe you could put fake tattoos on. The pom poms are mostly red and some black. I tried to do prt-scr to get pictures of the video but it didn't work.  Undecided Anyways, hope this helps some.

thank you so much! I don`t have access to win mx here (stupid university halls downloading block), but I`ll get my bf to download the video for me.
I have a short, black, pleated skirt, and a black tank top thing. I`ll get some fake tattoos, and paint the anarchy mark on the shirt. still not sure how to make pompoms though.... I`m thinking black garbage bags cut in strips? but how to attach them....?

maybe electrical tape since it's black? or you could search around for some black gaffer's tape maybe..... and come to think of it i've seen electrical tape in colors before...also duct tape, so maybe you could get red?

you could use the garbage bags cut into 2 foot strips, take a piece of tape and fold over the middle, and stick it to itself, so the tape becomes the handle. then fold the garbage bags in half. sort of like this.

I just made some pom poms for my ghost of a cheerleader costume and I just used shopping bags because they are white and they make the swish sound. I cut them on the bottom into little strips and just ripped up and fastened them with an elastic in the middle and they came out really fat. I used four bags.
