I didn’t watch the famous 90’s cult classic mystery show Twin Peaks until just last year (we blew through the whole thing on Netflix pretty quick), but I absolutely loved it and I’m now a huge fan. I might do a more formal review-type post on the show later on, but for now I just want to round up some fun Twin Peaks links I’ve enjoyed over the past few months.
Web: Welcome to Twin Peaks
If you’re a true fan, be sure to check out Welcome to Twin Peaks, the definitive Twin Peaks fansite! They update super frequently with every tidbit of Twin Peaks news, trivia, and info you could ever hope for. Everything I’ll post here has probably already been posted there!
Design: Living In Twin Peaks
The amazing design blog Design*Sponge does a series called Living In where they gather up screencaps from particularly stylish movies and TV shows and pick out home goods and fashion pieces that match the aesthetic. A few weeks ago, they ran a wonderful Living In feature on Twin Peaks! The feature really captures the cozy-but-eerie style of the show that has become so iconic.
Game: Black Lodge 2600
Ever wanted to play a Twin Peaks video game? This might not be what you had in mind, but Black Lodge 2600 is an Atari-like fan-made game that puts you in the shoes of Agent Cooper trying to escape the Black Lodge. The 8-bit style of the game only seems to ramp up the creepy factor. Don’t play this game in the dark!
Music: Chiptunes by Norrin Radd
Speaking of 8-bit, here are some fun Twin Peaks tracks made into chiptunes, by Norrin Radd, featured on Welcome to Twin Peaks. (There is also a great chiptune version of the Twin Peaks theme out there by artist Natty, but the site that used to host it is down.)Norrin Radd - Audrey's Dance (Twin Peaks The NES Game) Norrin Radd - Dale Cooper Arrives (Twin Peaks The NES Game)
Art: TWIN PEAKS 3rd season comic
Here’s my favorite piece of Twin Peaks fanart, the cover of a third season pitch in comic form by artist yelahttm. Can’t you just imagine this as a promo poster for a Season 3? I also have my own bit of Twin Peaks fanart here.
Cosplay: Fashion Photoshoots
The people of Twin Peaks have such unique style that the fashion world can’t help but be inspired! Here are some photoshoots and look-books inspired by Twin Peaks fashion:

Vice Magazine – The Owls are Not What They Seem Photoshoot
Bust Magazine – Twin Peaks Retro Looks Photoshoot
