How to Make a Mary Katherine Gallagher Costume


Whether you are attending a party or you just want to make some friends laugh, dressing up like Mary Katherine Gallagher is a hoot. Mary Katherine Gallagher, played by Molly Shannon, was the lead character in "Superstar," a Saturday Night Live film. The Catholic schoolgirl character was awkward, nerdy, and full of slapstick comedy. Creating your own Mary Katherine Gallagher costume requires only an eye for detail in mixing and matching a variety of clothing pieces.

Things You'll Need

  • Yellow short-sleeved blouse
  • Maroon sweater vest
  • Blue-and-red plaid skirt
  • White bloomers
  • White knee-high socks
  • Black shoes
  • Cat's-eye glasses
  • Red hairband
  • Put on the short-sleeved yellow blouse. Mary Katherine's was canary yellow with a slightly ruffled collar.

  • Pull on the maroon sweater vest. For an authentic look, select a sweater vest with a V-neck that buttons up the front and has an embroidered school crest on one side.

  • Slide on the short, pleated skirt. It should be approximately three inches above your knees. Wear white bloomers underneath the skirt.

  • Wear a pair of knee-high socks. White socks with red stripes at the knee-bands are ideal.

  • Accessorize with a pair of cat's eye glasses with dark frames and a red hairband. Mary Katherine's hair was dark and shoulder length. No makeup is required for the Mary Katherine "Superstar" look.
