Dress Up Like Edward Scissorhands

Released in 1990, Edwards Scissorhands is the iconic Tim Burton romantic fantasy movie starring Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder.

Edward was created by an inventor, but unfortunately the inventor died before he could finish and as a result, Edward had to live his life with scissors for hands. A very dangerous and unfortunate incident.

The years spent in isolation have not equipped him with the tools necessary to judge right from wrong. He's had no context. He's been completely without guidance. Furthermore, his work - the garden sculptures, hairstyles and so forth - indicate that he's a highly imaginative… uh… character. It seems clear that his awareness of what we call reality is radically underdeveloped.

Things you can't do when you have scissors for hands:

  • You can't scratch your eye
  • You can't give people hugs
  • You can't run your hands through someone's hair
  • You can't shake hands
  • And it's really hard to use the bathroom
