Film Heroes & Heroines Fancy Dress Theme

Today’s fancy dress theme is Film Heroes & Heroines. As we mentioned a week or so ago, today marks the 30thZorro Fancy Dress Costume anniversary of the UK première of Steven Spielberg’s ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, the film that introduced us to that iconic action archaeologist, Indiana Jones. The film was designed to recreate the spirit of the Saturday morning Matinee ‘cliffhanger’ cinema stories – the sort of thing also found in ‘Boy’s Own Paper’ and the Wizard comic. If all that sounds rather male-orientated, of course the girls later had their own role-model in Tomb Raider Lara Croft.

Let’s take a look at some of the costume suggestionst hat we have for Film Heroes & Heroines….

  • James Bond
  • Captain Jack Sparrow – he is a ‘sort of’ hero

  • Superman
