9 Classic Movie Cosplays

Cosplay is for everyone and these amazing cosplayers push the limits all the way into the past. There’s no science fiction, just good old fashioned classic movie designs! Go black and white and make what was old new again!

Fun Fact: Did you know Max Fleischer (The creator of Betty Boop) hired the FIRST EVER female animator? He did, and I love him for it!

Can I request more classic cosplays guys? I adore Audrey Hepburn and her black and white Ascot dress is one of my unicorns. Its so heartbreakingly beautiful and I’ve never seen it cosplayed. Why?! Considering I chose my wedding gown because it reminded me of My Fair Lady’s Embassy ballgown I’m totally not impartial but really… pick a movie star. Any movie star, and bring a little classic style to a con floor!

  • I think part of my weakness for 1940s hair is how *neat and pretty* it is at the same time as it's *securely stowed.* Pin these styles well enough (and maybe even pomade them a little, I don't know), and you don't have to be terrified of wind. You can go on about your business without forever worrying about your hair. And that's. ~relieved sigh~ That's worth somethin'.

  • I hate victory rolls, beehives, and a lot of pin-up hair styles for this day and age, but some of these are JUST low-key enough to be used on occasion

  • If you don't have bobby pins, try it with two hair ties. Start by pulling the back half of your hair into a high ponytail using one tie. Then, pull the rest of your hair into a larger ponytail around the first. This will give you the height and pop you are looking for!
