Because what guy doesn’t want to be Indiana Jones at least once? My fiance and I decided to go the Temple of Doom route for Halloween this year, dressing as Indy and his sassy companion Willie Scott. It’s a fun couples costume, and with Willie’s blonde hair I wouldn’t have to wear a wig, which is always a plus in my book!
Part 1: The Characters
Part 2: Sources of Info & Inspiration
I knew it would be nearly impossible to find and purchase a dress that matched Willie’s exactly, so I gave up hope on that right away since I wasn’t going for super duper accuracy, just a fun Halloween costume. For those of you looking for a more screen-accurate dress, I found several great resources for that, including these:
- This thread has screen stills and detailed drawings of elements of the whole outfit. http://raven.theraider.net/showthread.php?t=21635
- This is a gorgeous cosplay of Willie & Indy that inspired me: http://gratzindustries.blogspot.com/2009/09/dragoncon-2009-pics-part-two.html
- For the hair ribbon, I followed these directions exactly! I think I even got the exact same wired ribbon! http://nerdinthecity.wordpress.com/tag/willie-scott/
