The movie Avatar was released in the United States on December 18, 2009. The movie was written and directed by James Cameron. The film broke several box office records during its release and became the highest grossing film of all time worldwide, surpassing Titanic, which had held the records for the previous 12 years. It also became the first film to gross more than $2 billion. So unless you’ve been under a rock for the past 8 months, you’ve definitely seen or perhaps heard of this little movie. My husband and I have seen the movie twice, once in it’s regular format and once in 3-D (which I have to say was amazing). My son has seen in numerous times with his friends and now has the DVD so he can watch it anytime he wants.
The characters in this movie are incredible and Avatar costumes are perfect for Halloween! The two main characters, Corporal Jake Sully and Neytiri (of the Na’Vi clan) are fun to wear whether you’re a child or adult. They make for a great couples costume if you’re going to a Halloween party or for trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Everyone will know what character your portraying…the blue in the costume sort of gives it away!
Good news for all you Avatar fans out there! First on August 27th, Avatar will be returning to the big screen in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D. For all you moviegoers who missed experiencing the film in 3D, now you can! Furthermore, James Cameron stated that since the film was so successful, there will be at least two sequels to the film! That gives all us Avatar fans something to look forward to!
The Wizard of Oz is one movie that just about everyone I know has seen at some point in their lives. It’s definitely one of my favorites and my children love it as well! Who hasn’t heard of Dorothy, Toto and the good witch Glinda? The original film came out in 1939 with Judy Garland playing the part of Dorothy and it’s still as popular today as it was when it was released 71 years ago!
Halloween is always a fun time to portray the cast of The Wizard of Oz. I’ve seen many Dorothy’s wearing their sequined ruby slippers ringing our doorbell on Halloween night. The characters in the movie are famous all on their own; Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch are all hugely popular during the Halloween season. Even the Flying Monkey costumes are a hit!
This year for 2010 there’s a new twist on this old classic when it comes to Halloween costumes. The Wicked of Oz Mistress Dorothy costume is so cool! It takes the innocent sweet Dorothy to a whole new level, just in time for this sinister holiday. It’s her evil twin dressed in leather of course!
If you wanted to make it a group costume theme, you’ll find the Wicked of Oz Scarecrow (carrying a scythe) and the Wicked of Oz Lion, who is not cowardly at all! You’ll be the talk of the party this year with these great costumes!
