The Oscars Party Costumes, Formal Wear & Party Supplies
2017 gave us some great costume worthy movies. Think La La Land, Fences, Hidden Figures, and Hell or High Water. We searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find most 2017 hit movie characters’ costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don’t worry! We have combed through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite movie characters and would make perfect Oscars party costumes.
One more thing >> if you continue scrolling down we have included movie inspired costumes from past years including the always popular Lobby Boy Costume from the Grand Budapest Hotel.
2017 Movie Character Costumes
Rather than actually purchase a La La Land Oscar Party Costume consider renting! Although clearly not exact, all of three of these Rent the Runway dresses can be delivered to your doorstep in time for your Academy Awards Party.
For fences we found a 2-Pocket brown shirt (be sure to wear with white undershirt underneath shirt) and 2 50's inspired plaid dresses. Add a half waist apron! >> Brown Wrangler Shirt | White Undershirt | Blue Plaid ShirtDress | Red Plaid Shirtdress | Half Waist Apron
To re-create Hidden Figures costumes think mid-century early 60's looks >>Vintage Sea Green Dress, Retro Swing Cotton Dress, Royal Blue Dress with Collar | 3/4 Sleeve Bow Dress , Vintage Knee-Length Floral Dress, V Collar Bow Belt Dress, | 2-Piece Jacket Dress, Women's Yellow Suit, Button Front Skirt Suit
And for the guys a simple white collared shirt, black slacks, and a black skinny tie should do it!
Throw on some jeans, cowboy boots, and a white cowboy hat, a white police shirt, aviator sunglasses and an optional red tie. Prefer to dress as the bank robbers? Think jeans, cowboy boots, a double pocket shirt and a khaki hoodie.
How fun would it be to don ornate Oscars party costumes inspired by The Florence Foster Jenkins movie. We recommend the guys keep it simple and wear a tuxedo. On the other hand, ladies can get as ornate as you can handle. Think pearls and feather and beads >> Angel Wings | Beaded Flapper Dress | Faux Fur Jacket | Beaded Fascinator | Faux Pearls | White gloves

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL – Nominated for Best Picture
Zero Bellboy Costume
We could not for the life of us find a purple colored bellboy outfit, but that's okay, for Zero's Grand Budapest Hotel Bellboy uniform just think dressy purple!
Purple Male Chef Jacket | Women's Solid Purple Blazer | Men's Dress Pants Trousers | Womens Purple Stretch Leggings
Of course don't forget the accessories! We had an extremely difficult time finding anything close to a purple lobby boy hat so we've resolved to instead come up with a DIY process for this essential part of the Grand Budapest Hotel Lobby Boy Costume. Try cutting the brim off a cheap costume style purple top hat and cutting or punching two small holes opposite each other near the new edge of the hat. Next cut and elastic band long enough to wrap under your chin (don't forget to an an extra 2 inches or so for tying) and tie each end of the elastic to the holes. Lastly, finish the hat off by writing “Lobby Boy” with gold fabric markers or puffy paint in large letters across the front.
