Movie Costumes

Posted on February 01, 2012 by admin

A popular theme for parties is movie costumes. Film night gives guests the opportunity to dress up like some of their favourite film characters – sexy, wacky, adventurous, exciting, or spooky.

When hosting a film night fancy dress event, you are in control of how widespread or small the theme can be.  You may want to have a night where people can chose from any film of any era and genre or as the host, you may want to select the film yourself.  This can include cartoon-based films, where people can chose from costumes such as Fred Flintstone or Inspector Gadget.  Other genres include adventure films or films based upon games, like Lara Croft Tomb Raider or Halo 3.  Fantasy and science fiction genres give an opportunity for people to dress in anything from Star Wars, Avatar, or Edward Scissorhands.

In a 1970s era-based film night, costume ideas can include films like All That Jazz, American Graffiti, Star Wars, and Superman.  The 1980s films include Aliens, Back to the Future, Amadeus, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.  Any film genre can make a great film night.

To achieve an Indiana Jones look, there are two great costumes:  the Adventurer and the Deluxe Indiana Jones.  Both come with the jacket, hat and iconic whip.  To go as Lara Croft Tomb Raider, there are a few different selections, including a Teen Deluxe Lara Croft Legend Costume that is perfect for young girls.  The Lara Croft Tomb Raider Wig provides Lara’s signature long brown braid.
