Gone With The Wind – Movies Is Today’s Fancy Dress Theme

were choosing a theme, Gone With The Wind would suggest itself, but prior to 1987, this date in 1940 saw the release of Charlie Chaplin’s first real ‘talkie’ film, ‘The Great Dictator’ in which he depicts the fortunes of a Jewish barber and the rise of one Adenoid Hynkel (Chaplin played both roles).

Choosing the theme ‘Movies’ or ‘Films’ gives you and your guests a huge range of costumes to choose from. This theme is also great for couples costumes and even gives a good selection of costumes for those of you looking for some group costume ideas. Some great examples for couples (and groups) film costume include:

  • Harry Potter – an obvious choice for children
