2014 – 2016 Movie Character Costumes

2016 gave us some great costume worthy movies. Think Tarzan, Ghost Busters, Suicide Squad, Captain America, and even Louise’s outfits from Me Before You. We searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find several 2016 hit movie characters’ costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don’t worry! We have taken the time to comb through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite movie characters.

One more thing >> if you continue scrolling down we have included movie inspired costumes from past years including the always popular Lobby Boy Costume from the Grand Budapest Hotel.

From Divergent to Maleficent to Guardians of the Galaxy, romance, comedy, action, and fear stole our hearts and connected us with characters we all can identify with and love as our own friends. So as our cohorts over at  PartyIdeaPros were researching costumes for this post, they were surprised to find so few pre-made movie character costumes for this year’s sure to be most popular characters. They searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find several 2014 hit movie characters’ costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don’t worry! They actually took the time to comb through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the Halloween costumes of some of our favorite 2014 popular movie characters. We hope you enjoy what they found!

Zero Bellboy Costume

We could not for the life of us find a purple colored bellboy outfit, but that’s okay, for Zero’s Grand Budapest Hotel Bellboy uniform just think dressy purple!

Of course don’t forget the accessories! We had an extremely difficult time finding anything close to a purple lobby boy hat so we’ve resolved to instead come up with a DIY process for this essential part of the Grand Budapest Hotel Lobby Boy Costume. Try cutting the brim off a cheap costume style purple top hat and cutting or punching two small holes opposite each other near the new edge of the hat. Next cut and elastic band long enough to wrap under your chin (don’t forget to an an extra 2 inches or so for tying) and tie each end of the elastic to the holes. Lastly, finish the hat off by writing “Lobby Boy” with gold fabric markers or puffy paint in large letters across the front.
