Epic Greek Costumes Coming to a Theater Near You

November 11, 2011

A 3D fantasy adventure film from the directors of 300 is releasing to theaters today, 11-11-11, under the title Immortals. It is loosely based on the Greek myths of Theseus and the Minotaur and the Titanomachy. Theseus (Henry Cavill of Superman: Man of Steel), is a mortal man chosen by Zeus to lead the fight against his ruthless nemesis King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke), who is on a rampage across ancient Greece to obtain a weapon that can destroy humanity.

The costume epics and the CGI are being talked about in the reviews and by critics. Brian Gallagher of MovieWeb.com reports as being really taken by the Greek costumes and commented that they were ‘just amazing.” In his interview with Isabel Lucas who portrays Athena the Goddess of War, she describes her character’s outfits as unbelievable, beautiful, gruesome and so creative. Although she stated it was very physically impractical to wear (with the corsets and chain-link skirt weighing nearly 44 pounds), the costume encouraged her to embody her character while feeling very regal on the movie set.

Freida Pinto, who stars as the Oracle priestess Phaedra, agreed that she also got to wear some beautiful costumes. One of her Greek style costumes in Tarsem Singh’s Greek epic fantasy Immortals included a tight corset. “As beautiful as the costume was, it was a challenge learning to deal with it,” she shared during an interview. TheHollywood, Bollywood personality admitted that it was a challenge breathing in it.

Recent films telling the tales of Ancient Greece mythology hasn’t disappointed the critics with their beautifully designed costumes. 300, Clash of the Titans,Troyand Gladiator are other examples of ancientGreecemythology movies that feature epic Greek costume designs. Gerard Butler as King Leonidas in his Spartan Warrior costume and Lena Headey portraying Queen Gorgo in her sexy white toga remain among the favorites.

Become your own mythological legend at your next costume party or movie event. Our selection of Greek costumes is sized for men, women, teens, boys and girls. Whether you choose to be a Spartan warrior, Greek myth, Goddess, sexy siren or a Grecian in a toga, you will find what you are looking for within our selection of Greek costumes.

Halloween Spotlight: Impressive Ghostbusters Costume!

November 1, 2011

While I have come across many great costumes that are homemade, I had a hard time not sharing this homemade Ghostbuster costume that I saw online the other day. It was so impressive that I had to share. I think whether you are into cosplay or not, everyone enjoys seeing a good homemade Halloween costume. There is no doubt that a lot of time, love and effort was put into the making of this Ghostbuster costume.

Gala Darling posted some pictures of her clever husband in his Ghostbuster Costume. She stated that he made this entire Halloween costume from scratch. The patches were sewn on, elbow-pads dyed and a proton pack was constructed and painted. You will also be happy to know that the images were taken by photographer Lydia Hudgens in front of the actual firehouse from the movie! I say he would give Ghostbusters’ Dr. Peter Venkman a run for his role!

Spotlight: Wicked Red Riding Hood Costume

January 25, 2011

Character: Wicked Red Riding Hood Sexy Costume
Accessories: Fishnet Thigh Highs with Backseam , Traditional Lace Petticoat

Model: Lillian Eakes
Photographer: Tim Vo
Location: Orange County, CA

With the release of the new live-action fairy tale Red Riding Hood on March 11, 2011, we decided it would be the perfect opportunity to share an exclusive photo shoot we did of our Wicked Red Riding Hood Costume from the sexy line of Be Wicked Costumes. Photographer Tim Vo and model Lillian Eakes brought a saucy new sex appeal to a fairytale classic character, Litte Red Riding Hood. Through our exclusive photo shoot collection it looks as though the not-so-innocent Lil Red is exploring the forest in search of the Big Bad Wolf. Temptation is at his door with this sexy Little Red Riding Hood costume.

Our sexy Red Riding Hood Costume from Be Wicked includes a stretch lycra mini dress, black waist cincher laced with red ribbon and a red hooded shoulder cape. The sexy Red Riding Hood dress features a sweetheart bust line and thin tank straps. The signature red hooded cape fastens in the front with a red ribbon. For costume accessories, Lillian added fishnet thigh high stockings, black heel pumps and our Traditional Lace White Petticoat.

The vibrant red colors of the Wicked Red Riding Hood costume contrast beautifully amongst the lavish, wooded landscape. Lil red seems to be watching and waiting. Perhaps even tempting the Big Bad Wolf in her sexy new costume. This caped cutie certainly doesn’t seem to be just on a journey to grandmother’s house. She looks perplexed, possibly about her intentions of wandering out into the woods again.

There has been a lot of hype about the gothic twist on the Brothers Grimm fairy tail, Red Riding Hood. Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company picked up the rights with “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke signing on to direct. Amanda Seyfried will don the cape for Red Riding Hood in this dark retelling of the famous children’s tale. As described in our previous post, the drama thriller Red Riding Hood is set in a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf. Here is the second trailer that was released last Thursday for the Red Riding Hood movie starring Amanda Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez and Gary Oldman.

Geek Gamer Girls Cosplay through Music Video

December 17, 2010

A great parody of Katy Perry’s California Gurls has been circulating the internet and I really wanted to share this one with you all because of all the costumes featured in it! A group of geek gamer girls formed a singing quartet known as Team Unicorn and they cosplay their way through their first music video for their song Geek and Gamer Girls. I found a lot of the costumes we carry throughout the entire video. You really have to appreciate all of the costumes used for the music video cosplay. I spotted toy lightsabers, The Star Trek shirt and wig for Spock, Darth Maul costume, Spiderman costume and The Flash superhero costume just to name a few!

Michele Boyd from The Guild cosplays Han Solo from Star Wars, Milynn Sarley known as “TheGamerChick” on her YouTube vlog cosplays as Psylocke from X-Men, Clare Grant from Saber cosplays Lara Croft from Tomb Raider and Rileah Vanderbilt from Saber cosplays The Baroness from G.I. Joe. Did you know they also most recently cosplayed the Sailor Moon characters at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con? I also found out that Milynn, Rileah, and Michele play in the same guild on the RPG game World of Warcraft. Way to represent!

It is hard to pick from them all, but I would have to say my favorite of them all is the female version of the Han Solo costume from Star Wars. My hats off to Team Unicorn! What is your favorite costume from the Geek and Gamer Girls cosplay music video?

2011 Red Riding Hood Movie Trailer

December 16, 2010

I found an extremely interesting trailer for an upcoming movie that offers a twist on the story of the Grimm Brothers’ Red Riding Hood fairytale. Coming to theaters in March 2011 and from the director of Twilight, Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing us the story of Valerie, a young woman torn between two men who plans on escaping her village with her true love. But when her sister is killed by a werewolf in the dark forest near her home, Valerie soon realizes that she has a special connection to the beast.  Shop our Little Red Riding Hood costumes.

From Twilight saga director Catherine Hardwicke comes the romantic fantasy thriller Red Riding Hood. The film features an ensemble cast, led by Amanda Seyfried in the title role with co-stars Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Harry Potter films), Billy Burke (Twilight films), Lukas Haas (Inception, Crazy Eyes) and Shiloh Fernandez (Skateland) to name a few. Set in a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf, Amanda Seyfried portrays Valerie who is in love with an orphaned woodsman, much to her family’s displeasure.

It looks as though the 2011 Red Riding Hood movie is a drama thriller and will have a darker storyline. The tagline rightly reads “Believe the legend. Beware the wolf.”

I have collected a few stills from the 2011 Red Riding Hood movie to share with everyone along with the trailer! You know what this means? Yes, our Little Red Riding Hood costume selection will be growing. I am betting that new styles of Red Riding Hood costumes will be available in 2011 along with some new red hooded capes in our costume accessory selection. We already have a nice collection in stock now. Here are some of my favorites from the Little Red Riding Hood costume selection.

Also – keep an eye out for an exclusive photoshoot from Tim Vo with a Little Red Riding Hood costume in January!

New Winnie the Pooh Movie in 2011!

December 10, 2010

We found the latest trailer for the Winnie the Pooh sequel coming to theaters July 15, 2011. This all-new animated family movie from Walt Disney Pictures reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail.

I was excited to see the return of all the characters from the Hundred Acre Wood. My favorite character from Disney’s Winnie the Pooh has always been Eeyore, the greyish-blue, gloomy, old stuffed donkey. It looks as though a lot of the plot may revolve around him and his missing tail!

Is your family ready for the theater release of the new 2011 Winnie the Pooh movie? Your kids can be ready dressed as their favorite character in a Winnie the Pooh child costume. We have a complete selection of Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore costumes for your infant, toddler or child. Kids are sure to appreciate the soft plush material that is featured on each Winnie the Pooh costume. You can also decorate the kids play room or baby nursery with the Winnie the Pooh character cardboard cutout standups that we carry. The Winnie the Pooh lifesize cutouts are made of heavy-duty cardboard with high quality, full color laminated graphic. The Pooh Bear standees can stand-up or hang on a wall.

Spotlight: Sexy Alice in Wonderland Costume

November 15, 2010

Character: Sexy Alice in Wonderland Costume (Tim Burton design)
Accessories: Button Spat Leg Warmers, Alice in Wonderland Costume Wig, Wonderland Rabbit Plush Costume Purse

Model: Kelly Ruiz
Photographer: Tim Vo
Location: Irvine, CA

We’ve received word about a new adventure in Wonderland that sent Alice Kingsley out of the rabbit hole a different woman. Ms. Alice Kingsley of Wonderland has come back feeling confident, sexy and ready for her next adventure. Let things continue to get more curiouser and curiouser.

The Sexy Alice in Wonderland Costume offers the Tim Burton movie design, but in a shorter style with a form fitting and curve hugging fit. It still has the signature baby blue dress featuring lace short sleeves with the Victorian-era lace neckline trimmed in black ribbon. This sexy Alice dress comes complete with a blue headband with black bow and an attached black petticoat. When Kelly Ruiz was modeling the flirty version of the Mia Wasikowska dress, she was impressed by the quality of the costumes stating that it was one of the better costumes that she has worn and adding that it fit really nicely.

We accessorized the costume with thigh high stockings, a curly blonde wig and a white rabbit purse to add to the look of this classic fairytale character. Model Kelly Ruiz agrees that the Button Spat Leg Warmers are a must! She added, “They fit perfectly with the costume and are way cuter than any you could buy at a store!” The thigh high leg warmers feature acrylic buttons running vertically down the sides and are completed off with a functioning belt and buckle at the top. The long curly blonde hair on the costume wig will add an authentic look to your Alice in Wonderland movie costume and comes complete with a removable black headband. You can mix and match with the one included in the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland costume.

Kelly was going for an innocent and cute look in some of her pictures and then a sexier, confident look in the others. Photographer Tim Vo agreed that he was working on showing that Alice is sexy,  but she doesn’t know it. He agreed that the leg warmers are super cute and sexy adding that he highly recommends completing your costume with them! CLICK HERE to see Tim Vo’s favorite shot. He stated, “This is my favorite photograph because Kelly looks totally hot in it and shows off the leg warmers well!”

Attend your next Fairytale or Costume party with the sexy Alice in Wonderland costume. The new confident and sexy Alice Kingsley is ready for her debut. Watch out Mad Hatter and Red Queen, the new Alice of Wonderland is on fire!
