Whenever I see a new film costume exhibit I really like, I always think "how cool would that be to wear for Halloween". With that in mind, here's ten costume ideas for men from the movie exhibits I've come across throughout 2013 so far, hopefully they'll be able to provide some inspiration if you're still struggling with your Halloween outfit this year.
Be sure to check out more original movie costumes from The Lone Ranger on display for inspiration.
This is the latest gold and red Mark 42 armour from the third film, but be sure to check out all the other Iron Man suits which I photographed on display at Disneyland's temporary Stark Expo attraction in Tomorrowland to help promote the movie's release.
Be sure to check out Amazon.com for some cool Iron Man costumesand armoured Avenger accessories to help with your Halloween look this year.
I'm sure there will be quite a few Man of Steel costumes flying around this Halloween, but if you prefer more of a classic look, be sure to check out Brand Routh's Superman Returns costume which is much more faithful to the Kryptonian's original iconic look.
This Halloween step back in time and get groovy with this retro fashion look from the 70's, which may be far easier to source at vintage clothing and thrift stores than making your own elaborate costume.
First up is Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor outfit, with his signature bow-tie, skinny suspenders and tweed jacket. All you need to complete the look is a fez hat and your own sonic screwdriver (not to mention a TARDIS and a companion or two).
Plus if you're a fellow Whovian, be sure to take a look at all the other Doctor's looks and his lexicon of adversaries and aliens for more inspiration this Halloween.
I wasn't disappointed as they had this cool Western-themed costume worn by Michael J. Fox as 'Marty McFly' in Back to the Future Part III from 1990, which makes for an interesting spin on a cowboy outfit.
So there you have it, a smattering of ideas from science-fiction, comic books, Westerns, fairytales and fantasy, military and historical genres to help you make up your mind.
And if these original costumes from the big and small screen haven't provided any inspiration for you, be sure to also check out these inventive costumes from West Hollywood's annual Halloween Carnaval.
