10 Tarantino Costume Ideas and Win some VIP tickets…

9:14 AM EDT on May 10, 2011

Hey, have you heard???

This Saturday we are having our birthday/Tarantino costume party at the 51st Street Speakeasy.  Because not everyone is a Tarantino super fan like me, I figured I'd post some costume ideas for the party and costume contest.  The only catch is that if you dress up like one of these characters, you should probably share the prize with me.  Just sayin...

Also, before the party gets really started, we are having a VIP reception from 8:00pm - 10:00pm in the new Great Room at the Speakeasy.  In attendance at this party will be TLO writers, Ogle Moles and Cardboard Jim Traber.  We'll also have a free food and free Coop Beer.

Today we'll be giving away five pairs of passes to the VIP reception.   All you need to do is leave a comment that tells us your favorite Tarantino character.  Thursday at noon we'll select 5 random comments.  If your comment is selected, you win a pair of passes.

Anyway, here are 10 Costume Ideas.  Enjoy.

1. Marvin (Pulp Fiction)

This would be a cool costume, but only if you can recreate what Marvin looked like after he got shot in the face.

-

2. Melanie Ralston (Jackie Brown)

If you're a girl and dress up like this, I can't guarantee you'll win the contest...but I can guarantee you'll be #winning.

-

3. The One-Eared Cop (Reservoir Dogs)

I was going to embed the video of this scene, but it's still a bit squeamish.  You can view it here.

-

4. Elle Driver (Kill Bill)

This costume should be easy to pull off for all the ladies out there. That's because we all know that you have a nurse costume tucked away somewhere in your bedroom.

-

5. Shosanna Dreyfus (Inglorious Basterds)

If a girl dresses up like this she not only gets to wear a red dress, but also be a Nazi killer.

-

6. Pumpkin and Honey Bunny (Pulp Fiction)

This would be a cool couples costume idea.  The only thing is to not get cocky and try to rob the place.  You don't want Clark Matthews to tell you which wallet is his.

-

7. Nancy Callahan (Sin City)

Apparently, Tarantino directed segments of this film.  I'm not sure who directed this one, but whoever did should win an award.

-

8. Any of these guys... (Reservoir Dogs)

If you're a dude and you're not sure what to wear, how about a black suit, white shirt, thin black tie and sun glasses?

-

9. Le Big Mac (Pulp Fiction)

Somebody in the Ogle Mole network gave me this idea.  It's pretty clever.

-

10. The Gimp (Pulp Fiction)

If you dress up as the Gimp for this party, you'll probably get a few sympathy votes from the judges.  That's all I can guarantee.
