What do director Tim Burton & supermodel Claudia Schiffer have in common? Well, today we can say Happy Birthday to both of them. Tim Burton was born in Burbank, California in 1958, whilst Claudia Schiffer’s birth was over a decade later, in 1970 in Dusseldorf, Germany. We think however, that is where the similarity ends. Claudia of course has made a couple of appearances in movies such as Zoolander and Love Actually, but nothing from the prolific Tim Burton stable. The great thing about the majority of Tim Burton’s films, are the number of costumes that are regularly requested here at Props n Frocks, and which we have available. From Beetlejuice to Batman, Edward Scissorhands to Sweeney Todd, Willie Wonka to the various characters from Alice in Wonderland. The latter of course includes Tim Burton’s wife Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. And if the films of Tim Burton are not quite your style (some people find them rather dark), you could always go for a James Bond party, as today also marks the 81st birthday of actor Sean Connery. Or what about stick to the firm favourite of films or Movies.
To be honest, there is so much choice for film costumes you should be able to find a lovely costume and put it into a film context. We have completed many other film costume ideas blogs, so why not take a look?
