  • light blue shirt

  • “dad” / “aviator” sunnies

  • dinosaur plush toy

Goodfellas (1990)

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

  • fake blood – here is a handy fail safe recipe. Use this carefully, take it from a media student who has ruined too many of Mum’s good tablecloths and had too many weird looks from strangers at my “blood stained” hands in the past

  • black suit

  • black tie (or, get a squad of mates together and change your tie colour to match the characters in the film ie. Pinky wheres a Pink tie)

 

Clueless,  Ten Things I Hate About You, (and pretty much every quintessential 90s teen movie …)

Silk slip dresses featured in a lot of rom-coms and any film with a “prom” as the cause and solution to ~ drama ~ 

  • Silk Slip Dresses

 

“What the heck is that?”

“A dress”

“Says who?

Okay, so it was no “SYN Awards” but the AMAs were responsible for this iconic red carpet appearance. Talk about #CoupleGoals ! 

 

 

Titanic (1997) 

Settle the question of the late 20th century, was there REALLY enough room for Jack ? Come as “the door” and settle the score ! 

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Mia Wallace

Alright, we snuck in another Tarantino gem – but this time we’ll shift the focus to a female lead character – Mia Wallace portrayed by Uma Thurman.

  • short black hair wig
