Wonder Woman, ‘The Last

Jedi’ And ‘It’ Are Ruling

Halloween

 

 

Fandango just dropped a list of the most popular costumes for this Halloween season. Specifically, it’s a poll of 1,000 moviegoers concerning what movie-related costumes they will be wearing specifically concerning movies in 2017. So it won’t account for the various Harley Quinn, Eleven or Elsa costumes that we might see over the next week. To the surprise of absolutely no one, the top female costume was Wonder Woman (from Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc.’s Wonder Woman and Justice League) and the top male costume was Pennywise from New Line Cinema’s It.

Costumes from Walt Disney’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi made up five of the 20 top respective offerings. “Stormtrooper,” Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren came in second, sixth and 10th place for men. And Leia Organa came in third place (behind Wonder Woman and Belle from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast) for women, with Rey coming in at fifth behind Annabelle from WB and New Line’s Annabelle: Creation.

For what it’s worth, that seems to imply that the older Star Wars icons are still more popular than the newer characters, although perhaps A) the survey participants are old enough to still be bathed in nostalgia and B) it’s easier to throw on a grey robe and go as Luke than doing the whole black cape and helmet costume for Kylo. Having said that, I will argue that those going as Kylo probably have a higher chance of getting laid by their respective partner than those going as Pennywise.

 

The top male costumes were Pennywise, Stormtrooper, Star-Lord (Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Batman (Justice League), Baby (from Sony’s Baby Driver … that’s a surprise), Luke Skywalker, Wolverine (Fox’s Logan), Iron Man (Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming), Jack Sparrow (Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) and Kylo Ren.

So yeah, I must wonder if folks are going as Batman FROM Justice League or Wolverine FROM Logan or just going as one version or another of the famous superheroes. And yeah, Baby from Baby Driver is the only one that isn’t a superhero or fantasy character.

 

The top female costumes were Wonder Woman, Belle, Leia, Annabelle, Rey, Lorraine (from Focus Features’ Atomic Blonde… another surprise), Hela (Disney’s Thor: Ragnarok), Ahmanet (Universal/Comcast Corp.’s The Mummy… huh), Gamora (Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and Valkyrie (Thor: Ragnarok).

Again, Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde heroine is the rare non-fantasy character in the mix, while Thor gets two out of the ten female costumes. Not to beat a dead horse, but I must assume that Ahmanet showing up in the top ten is a sign of how few Halloween-friendly female characters there are in big Hollywood movies. Ditto Atomic Blonde making the female list but John Wick not making the male list.

Fashion Advice

How to Give Fashion Advice Without Offending Someone

We are constantly asked to provide fashion advice to our friends and sometimes people don’t want to be honest, since they may be afraid that the other person’s feelings may be hurt. If somebody asks for your fashion advice, respond in all honesty, yet be careful not to hurt the other person’s feelings.

 

 

 

“If you hope to provide fashion advice without hurting someone’s feelings consider buying the person a piece of clothing that you believe would improve the person’s look. Invite the person to shop with you for a gift you want to buy the person for an occasion such as a birthday or holiday and choose items that you believe would look good on the person. When you get to the store, choose an item as soon as you can because it will help establish a price range you were looking at and the type of item you intend to purchase such as a piece of clothing or accessory. You can also choose an item and present it as a gift if you are pretty certain about a person’s size.

Even if you generally don’t like someone’s fashion style, if you see the person fairly regularly you’ll notice there are pieces of clothing that you think look flattering on the person. Use the occasion when the person is wearing a color or a cut or a fit that you like and compliment the person on the reason you like that piece of clothing. Instead of simply saying, “I like that top,” explain what features of the top you like on the person. When you’re out in public with the person, you can also choose to focus on a clothing article someone else is wearing and indicate you think it would look good on the person.

Before you make a suggestion use the information you have about the person to consider whether the choices that person makes are based on budget concerns or perhaps issues about body image or a simple lack of interest in looking current. This information will allow you to address those concerns in your discussion by pointing out ways to accentuate features you like about the person or by focusing on locations that sell less expensive garments or even by talking about clothing features such as comfort or ease of washing.

Use the opportunity to share a fashion insight if the person you want to advise gives you a compliment on your clothing. If the person offers a compliment on a pair of slacks you’re wearing, you can disclose where you purchased the slacks and describe some of the other options available in the store. If the person compliments your slacks and you’d like to see that person in different tops, you can direct your response to the fact that you love the retailer and that the same place sells stylish tops.”

Invite your friends to shop with you for lovely dresses and all kinds of fashion accessories. It may be fun to do this together and you may find a way to be honest to each other and learn from each other to provide honest advice to one another. It will even be a great opportunity to bond with new friends.
