Wayne from X

Wayne (played by Martin Henderson) is the producer behind The Farmer’s Daughters, the porn flick at the heart of Ti West’s Texas-based horror movie X.  Wayne is a standard southern cowboy, with long curly hair, a twang, and a white cowboy hat.  He is the older boyfriend of Maxine, who he left his previous wife for.  Wayne wears a pretty generic outfit with dark jeans and a white hat, but his costume also includes a gold watch, which speaks to his larger aspirations.  During the film, he also shows that he wears a pair of extremely revealing skivvies under his jeans, so if you’re going for authenticity, you may want to invest in a set of men’s white bikini underwear.

Maxine from X

Maxine (played by Mia Goth) is an up-and-coming adult film star in Ti West’s X.  Maxine is a small-town girl with big dreams who follows her boyfriend to a secluded farm in Texas to shoot a porn movie with co-stars Bobby-Lynne and Jackson that is supposed to be her big break.  Things don’t go quite to plan, however, and Maxine and the others find themselves fighting for their lives instead of hitting it big.  Maxine has a very appropriately-70s look about her.  She begins the film wearing a striped tube top and shorts, while later changing into denim shortalls and boots, both of which are part of her film costume.  She also wears stark blue eye shadow and has freckles around her right eye and cheek, which you can mimic with a brown makeup pencil.
