So, I've been bitten by the desire to dress up as Dade Murphy, alias Crash Override alias Zero Cool, who crashed 1,507 systems including Wall Street trading systems single-handedly causing a four-point drop in the stock market and was forbidden from owning or operating a computer or touch-tone telephone until the day of his 18th birthday, for Halloween this year¹. Trouble is, finding period-appropriate attire. For those who haven't seen the cinematic masterpiece that is Hackers, go and see the cinematic masterpiece that is Hackers. I'll wait. It's on Netflix. For everyone else, I'm basically looking for 90s Quiksilver barbed-wire plaid T-shirts - either something as close to the main outfit from the film as possible (the one on the left, as nice as it would be to look like Angelina Jolie for a bit): or similar to one of his other outfits from the film or promotional material: Basically, I'm looking for blue-and-black 90s round-neck plaid T-shirts, or that red monstrosity he's wearing in the cast shot. Failing that, a hunting vest in... what is that, urban-jungle-camo-mashup pattern? Ideally, I'd also have his motorbike jacket, but there's nowt like on the market. There are companies producing 'replicas' for the sharp end of £100, but they look nothing like screen-accurate: Believe me, that one's the best of a bad bunch - hence concentrating on his non-jacket appearances. Why post all this? 'cos some of you buggers are old enough to be period-appropriate yourselves, and there's every chance you were a fan of Quiksilver back in the day and haven't yet cleared out your wardrobes. Failing that, for those of you who frequent charity shops, please keep your eyes peeled for anything suitable - cash is, naturally, waiting. Fankoo much! ¹ It's totally not for Halloween at all, I just want to put on some Kruder and Dorfmeister and parade 'round the house shouting HACK THE PLANET.
