Saved By The Bell‘s most memorable character definitely has to be Screech. The geeky, poorly dressed and awkwardly spoken teen was the comic relief of the program, and the ultra-loud colors of his clothing are seared into the minds of anyone who ever caught an episode. We all knew someone a little like Screech in high school – it may even be possible that you were more like Screech than you would care to admit.
It’s not hard to bring back the Screech magic in costume form. You need to throw your stylistic reservations to the side and embrace your inner nerd – or put him in a headlock, it’s really up to you. Whichever you choose, make sure to take a close look at what he is wearing, because it will serve as your model for a Screech outfit:
- Bright yellow, purple or turquoise t-shirt, preferably with a high school sports logo on it.
- Loud and flashy open short sleeve shirt – think abrasive patterns, Hawaiian disasters, that sort of thing.
- Jean shorts that are just a little too tight. Not sexy, but uncomfortable.
- White sneakers.
So what’s the most important Screech accessory? A curly black ‘fro wig. Some places even sell a specific Screech hairpiece if you don’t happen to possess the requisite curls yourself.
