Kill Your Darlings tells the story of Beat Generation novelists like Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, but one girl who steals the show is Kerouac’s girlfriend Edie Parker. What better way to rock that rebellion chic than by wearing a Beat Generation influenced costume?
4. ’90s Girl
Inspired by Aubrey Plaza in The To Do List
The To Do List is a hilarious girl-power comedy that uses satire to empower the girls on screen, and its 1990s setting makes for some cool retro costume ideas.

Space has never been so cool (or scary) as it is in the buzzed about new film Gravity. So, why not take the chance to live out your space-defying dreams as an astronaut this year? Sandy pulled it off, so can you.
