If Halloween is just the excuse you need to dress up in a fabulous costume, you'll love this selection of colourful outfits from musicals and period drama movies.

If 1970's Europop fashion is not your style, what about the Parisian showgirl glamour of the Folies Bergere.

If the 16th Century style of Queen Elizabeth I is not to your taste, what about the exquisite wedding dress of another lady of royalty this time from 18th Century England, Georgiana Cavendish, The Duchess of Devonshire (as worn by Keira Knightley in the movie The Duchess).

Alice in Wonderland Hatter women costumes
Mad Hatter women corseted costumes
If you don't feel confident enough to play a Queen, what about one of the royal court, like these quirky Hatter women costumes from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

Giselle's Enchanted curtain dress

And finally, if you're a Disney fan and want to be a fairytale princess this Halloween season, what about grabbing some fabric and running up this fun curtain dress, as worn by Amy Adams in Enchanted.

There are also lots of other ideas for Halloween costumes here at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props, from superheroes to aliens from outer space, cowboys to iconic villains, and much more.
