Samantha Baker, Jake Ryan, and The Geek



Sixteen Candles is a coming of age classic, replete with the awkwardness, hope and fatalism of youth. If you're nostalgic for the indignities of life as a 16 years old complete with neglectful parents, hope and unrequited love you've come to the right place. Yeah, you might not have hosted a foreign exchange student who was an instant charmer like Long Duk Dong, but you know Sixteen Candles is a relatable classic. We have costume guides if you want to be the angsty and righteous Samantha, the desperate and dogged Geek or the confident and sincere Jake. Our guides are so good someone might forget your birthday.
