On a wig and a chair.
Toronto film industry pro Rob Duckworth, who works as a camera assistant, says he was inspired to go as “Chair Girl” this Halloween after her newsmaking 2019.
“I usually like to have a Halloween costume that’s kind of relevant to that year,” said Duckworth, 26.
“That one just popped in my head for some reason as a funny costume. And I don’t agree with what she did or any of that but I thought it was pretty funny to be her for Halloween.”
The bearded Duckworth’s photo of himself as Marcella Zoia, whose viral video of her throwing a chair off a Toronto high rise balcony back in February onto the Gardiner Expressway below led to three criminal charges, has proven very popular on social media with overwhelmingly positive responses.

“I never thought that it would be this big,” said Duckworth.
“(I thought) like my and my friends would find it funny. I told a few of them about it and they all laughed when I told them but to see how many people responded. It’s crazy.”
Zoia herself posted a fire emoji on Instagram — but didn’t respond to Duckworth’s request they pose together — and even one of Toronto’s most famous singers seems to approve.
“Do you know a guy named The Weeknd? Like one of his people found me on Instagram and sent me a message saying, ‘He would love to take a photo with you in this costume but I don’t know if he’s like available for the next little while.’ So he said, ‘Hold onto the costume, we’ll let you know.’ So that was pretty crazy.”
It sure didn’t cost Duckworth much to become Zoia.
The IKEA chair, the same one as Zoia threw, was $18 and the Party City long blonde wig was $30.
“That was pretty much it,” said Duckworth.
“I could have worn the same leather jacket she wore but I was short on time and I figured the chair and the wig would be enough to let people know what I was.”
The photo of Duckworth in his “Chair Girl” getup was for a friend’s party last Saturday night and he plans to do it all again on Halloween (Thursday) on the TV show he’s currently working on.
“We’ll be on set on the show I’m working on,” said Duckworth, who didn’t want to name the TV series.
“It’ll be funny to see all the rest of the costumes. I’ve been invited to a few parties but I’m working.”

HUNTER: OMG! Chair Girl crashes to earth with guilty plea

Chair Girl flounced around the courthouse as if it was the pool at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami.
Another opportunity to pout, pose and flaunt her best life.
Chair Girl is Marcella Zoia, the micro-celebrity who tossed a chair off a 45th-floor condo balcony narrowly missing cars on the busy Gardiner Expressway and people below.
The 19-year-old woman pleaded guilty Friday in a Toronto courtroom to mischief causing danger to life.
Several other charges related to the February 2019 incident are expected to be dropped.
Apparently, the Crown decided not to pursue charges of stupidly and narcissism.
What they are looking for is a six-month custodial sentence. OMG.
Zoia — a selfie-loving child of our age — jumped to fame when the video of her tossing the chair went viral.
Even after she was arrested and charged, Zoia appeared more interested in curating her notoriety than in say, maybe lying low.
Keeping her mouth shut.
And most importantly, taking a break from social media.
Over the past 10 months, she has Instagrammed herself frolicking in the sun in Mexico and Miami. Partying. Always partying.
Then there was the other video that emerged where she was hanging with pals with one saying: “Over here’s the coke. The coke. The cocaine.”
And on Friday, she rolled in looking like an overly made up MTV wannabe, collagen-bumped lips and all.
Her expensive dark clothes were well-tailored and nicely accompanied by a big pair of designer sunglasses.
She is a star.
But in the hallway outside court, the serpent-like temptation of the cameras appeared to derail any attempt at putting a serious face on the proceedings.
Her long-suffering lawyer, Gregory Leslie, quietly scolded her suggesting the antics that delivered her micro-fame could land her in a cozy jail cell, courtesy of the Queen.

And when she left?
Her fellow party girl and the frequent sidekick to our heroine picked the bombing blond up in a white Porsche Cayenne leaving poor Leslie behind to answer reporters’ questions.
“When you’re dealing with someone so young, in my opinion, they’re not fully developed,” Leslie said, seeming like he’d rather be elsewhere.
“She was still a young lady at that time and she made a mistake. I think jail is far excessive and we’ll be asking for a suspended sentence.”
He added that the prospect of a stint in the slammer has caused Zoia “a lot of anxiety right now knowing that jail’s a possibility’.
The sometime model will have her travels to the U.S. curtailed because of her newly minted criminal record.
“She’s more subdued now … I think she’s learned. She’s matured,” Leslie said, adding “she is remorseful.”

He agreed that media attention may have forced the crown’s hand in seeking to make Zoia an example.
“You guys have better things to do with your time,” he said.
Leslie added that the video evidence was fairly overwhelming.
“The video is the video and based on that she entered a plea of guilty,” he said.
Zoia is still living with her mother and it’s unlikely she will return to college at this time.
“She’s already a changed woman,” he said.

Noted Toronto defence lawyer Monte McGregor told The Sun he didn’t think Zoia’s social media antics are a factor in the crown’s pursuit of jail time.
“They need to deter future behaviour by her and by anyone in the general public, and by asking for a custodial penalty the hope is that it prevents the next person from recklessly endangering someone’s life,” McGregor said.
“The post offence Instagram conduct and media attention itself may not directly impact the sentence, but if her lawyer is trying to demonstrate that it was a one-off occurrence or more importantly that she’s remorseful, the Crown could argue that she may not appreciate the gravity of the offence and doesn’t truly appear remorseful.”
He added that either way, Zoia will still have a criminal record.
“The question is whether a probationary sentence is sufficient to denounce the conduct and punish her enough to deter her and the general public in the future,” McGregor said.
The social media superstar may soon discover that being on minute 14:57 of her 15 minutes isn’t a lot of fun.
A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 14.

Not a care in the world as 'Chair Girl' spotted courtside at Raps game

Haters be damned, “Chair Girl” is living her best life.
Marcella Zoia, infamously known as “Chair Girl,” only a few days removed from a Nov. 15 court date where she pleaded guilty to mischief causing danger to life, was spotted having a ball courtside at the Toronto Raptors blow out 113-97 win Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic.
It appears all is well as she posted snaps from the game and reposted a clip from an unidentified club on her Instagram page.
Zoia’s trouble with the law started after she was filmed throwing a chair off the 45th floor of a Toronto condo balcony in February 2019. The Crown is seeking a six-month custodial sentence.
The 19-year-old left a Toronto courtroom on Nov. 15 with a gaggle of press trailing behind her filming and snapping pictures. She wore big black sunglasses to shade her eyes as she left in a luxurious white Porsche Cayenne.

Since the video, Zoia’s activities have captured the attention of media for her brazen Instagram posts that show her living life as though there’s nothing to worry about — flying out to Miami for a photoshoot to capitalize on her 15 minutes of fame and one suspicious video where an individual is heard saying, “Over here’s the coke.”
Zoia submitted to a private drug test that came back clean to quash rumours she was consuming cocaine.

However, her online activity has drawn criticism with it being suggested the young woman should have been laying low throughout her legal ordeal.
She hasn’t and it appears she won’t be changing her behaviour either in the lead up to her scheduled sentencing hearing on Jan. 14, 2020.
