    • Black leather jacket with silver studs, red fright-wig.
    • Purple fez hat with silver crescent insignia and black tassle.
    • Black hat with pink, red and blue flowers on it, black scarf with gold dots, and dark ``granny'' glasses.
    • Big, black analog watch on her left wrist (visible only after opening credits).
    • Black Elvis-style jacket with silver studs.
  2. On the couch with Ferguson and Aunt Doherny: Blue robe with white polka-dots and trim over white and purple striped pajamas.
  3. Last year's school picture & shot where Clarissa screams: Navy blue cardigan over light blue button-down shirt, dark blue skirt, dark blue knee socks; hair in ponytails on left and right side.
  4. ``Salute to World Leaders'' outfit: Black, Chinese-style, long-sleeve shirt with ``genuine Mao Tse-Tung collar'' (over red, plaid, long-sleeve shirt), ``real Gandhi trousers'' (blue sweatpants), ``actual Jackie O. pillbox hat'' (black, but not perfectly round), ``a pin like Barbara Bush wears at Christmas'' (gold brooch), and the same big black analog watch on her left wrist.

  6. Same sweater, leggings, earrings and hair-style as #5, but with blue-jean cut-offs rolled up just above the knee, blue socks and black shoe-boots. Later, she adds a blue jacket (sort of navy-style), then, briefly, the purple fez from #1 and a red satin-like kimono. [pic]
