THE 21st CENTURY ICONIC COSTUME DESIGN LIST

MOVIE/CHARACTER: Loki

[Thor (2011), The Avenger (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013)

COSTUME DESIGNER:

Alexandra Bryne (Thor & The Avengers)

Wendy Partridge (Thor: The Dark World)

RECOGNITION: None (?!?!)

TUMBLR FAME: RIDICULOUS

COSPLAY FACTOR: EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS 

ICON CREDENTIALS: How is it possible that this has gotten absolutely no shine from the Costume Design Community? Why is it not on list of iconic costume design done up by those fancy brand name blogs?

Alexandra Bryne won the Oscar for her work in Queen Victoria so clearly it is not a question of it being a adaption of a design that had many visual cues and not being completely original.

Loki is the face of Marvel Cinematic Universe right now (well, that may soon change) and the costume is a thing of beauty but the Costume Design Community continues to shut out Superhero/Comic Book designs and to an extent Sci Fi.

Why does it feel like there is a hierarchical system to this whole thing?

Dang, how many heaving bosom costumes can one take?

THE 21st CENTURY ICONIC COSTUME DESIGN LIST

MOVIE/CHARACTER: Fight Club/Tyler Durden

YEAR: 1999

COSTUME DESIGNER: Michael Kaplan

DIRECTOR: David Fincher

RECOGNITIONCostume Designers Guild Awards 1999 Nomination

TUMBLR FAME: Low

COSPLAY FACTOR: Slightly below Average

ICON CREDENTIALS: Tyler Durden is Fight Club and Fight Club is Tyler Durden. If you know nothing more about the film just remember that. Anyone that watches this movie realizes that they too want to be Tyler Durden. Blame Brad Pitt’s face, the ridiculously quotable lines and THE CLOTHES. He’s meant to be the ideal of what masculinity ought to be (at least in the film), from 70s swagger to animalistic bad boy, the costumes convey all of this.

More importantly, douchey guys want to dress like him. They scour the internet for where to buy pieces and dress as him at Halloween (bruised face and all). Male Magazines every couple of years runs a COMPLETE RUN DOWN on how to dress the part. 

There’s no arguing that this belongs on the iconic list.

THE 21st CENTURY ICONIC COSTUME DESIGN LIST CRITERIA

The search for a list of Iconic Costume Design comprised of ONLY designs that have come out in recent history is over! Why not create our own list here on Tumblr? So, over the next couple months I will be taking my time going through some contenders and hopefuls.

See below for the criteria:

1. Designs MUST be 16 years old or younger (starting from 1998)*

2. Designs should have some influence on Pop Culture

3. Designs should have influence on other media & industries (music, fashion, etc)

4. Designs should have some Tumblr notoriety (lots of notes, frequently blogged)

5. Designs should have any form of recognition from the Professional Costume Design Community

7. Designs should have visible Cosplay Popularity (for this purpose this will include Traditional Cosplay, Halloween, Conventions etc.)

8. Designs should have influence on the creation of other Costume Design on Film

Ok, so only #1 is mandatory. Other than that the entries WON’T have to fulfill all of the criteria.

I’ll be posting on this but if anyone wants to leave a message on their take on what should be considered iconic feel free…
