Easy Movie-Themed Costumes and Cosplay

Do you like dressing for parties as characters from movies or history? If you’re into costumes or cosplay, you probably have a bunch of fun options lining your closet. If you ever want to attend Comic Con, a costume (or four – one for each  day) is pretty much required. Even if you only dress up for Halloween or the random theme party, some costumes are waaaay easier than others. (Believe me — I attend these kinds of conventions, and some outfits are super complicated!)

Here are some of the easier (But still fun) costumes. You can get most of the garb/accessories cheaply at thrift stores, Amazon, or on eBay. We’ll be adding more looks to this list as we write them up, so bookmark this page and check in from time to time.
