Ice Cold Movie Posters Inspired by Male Costume

Moxy Creative has designed an extraordinary collection of movie posters based on iconic male costume. Whet your appetite here then pop over to EveryGuyed to view the rest.

They are all superb, but our personal favourite is this one for Dumb and Dumber (1994). A vastly overlooked film in terms of costume design; Mary Zophres’ barmy formal attire for Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) is hilarious.

This poster uses just a pair of plain black Derby shoes – an obvious nod to Verbal Kint’s (Kevin Spacey) costume as created by Louise Mingenbach for The Usual Suspects (1995). With one shoe cocked to the side, nothing more is needed to recognise a criminal mastermind.

Far more to see at EveryGuyed, including sartorially re-imagined designs for Shaun of the Dead, The Shining and – striped braces at the ready – Wall Street. Illustration credits go to James Alexander Mathers and Andrew Lau.
