1970s

Billy Lee from Bad Times at The El Royale

William “Billy” Lee is the main antagonist in the movie Bad Times at the El Royale. He is played by Chris Hemsworth and largely inspired by real-life cult leader Charles Manson.

The movie is set in the 1970s and this sets the tone for Lee’s costume. He has long feathered hair and a goatee that is an iconic part of his costume. Billy Lee is also know for wearing an open chambray shirt with nothing underneath. If you’re not comfortable with this look you can wear a skin-tone t-shirt beneath. Or, if you’re feeling cheeky, you can buy a shirt printed with abs like Hemsworth’s and wear that beneath the overshirt.

A long chain necklace, dark jeans, a brown leather belt with a sheathed knife, and flip flops round out the look. If you can talk people into just about anything you’ll be fully in character. A little scary… but fully in character!

Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac

The band Fleetwood Mac’s lineup has gone through multiple changes since its bluesy beginnings in the 1960s, but their most recognizable sound is thanks in part to the musical contributions of Stevie Nicks and her songwriting partner (then romantic partner as well), Lindsey Buckingham. Flowing black dresses, shawls themed after her hit songs, and extremely high-heeled boots are practically synonymous with Stevie Nicks’ stage presence.

Irving Rosenfeld

Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) is a part-time small businessman and a part-time conman, who balances a complicated scheme along with a complicated love life. Having fallen for fellow con woman Sydney Prosser, while married to his neurotic wife Rosalyn, leaves a lot on his plate.

Richie Dimaso

In American Hustle, FBI agent Richie Dimaso (Bradley Cooper) is a schemer with a beautiful head of curls. Teaming up with a group of hustlers, Dimaso channels all his energy into taking down a couple of shady politicians, all while looking pretty darn suave.

Steven Hyde

Hyde is the practically adopted son of the Foreman family and is easily the coolest member of the gang. He is likely to be seen sporting a T-shirt of a rock band, tinted glasses, and a righteous fro.

Bob Pinciotti

In That 70’s Show, Bob Pinciotti is Donna’s dim-witted but lovable father. He’s up to date on the latest fads, sporting a permed hairdo and polyester suits. He also likes to lounge around the house in nothing but an open bath robe.

Harold Chasen

In between trying to woo the original cougar, Maude, and attending strangers’ funerals, Harold (Bud Cort) made time to wear some pretty impressive threads. When you look that good in a suit, it’s no wonder that Maude fell for him. The Jaguar/hearse probably helped too.

Cheech Marin

Cheech Marin is one half of the cannabis-driven comedy duo Cheech & Chong. In “Up In Smoke”, Cheech stars as Pedro De Pacas, who — not too surprisingly — is a stoner desperate to procure another stash.

Richie Tenenbaum

Growing up, Richie Tenenbaum was a tennis prodigy and mediocre artist. He secretly falls in love with his adopted sister Margot, leading to a meltdown during a televised tennis tournament. He abandons his career and seeks refuge aboard the ocean liner Cote d’Ivoire.

Ron Burgundy

Ron Burgundy is the popular and award-winning anchor for the KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News team. Always confident and well-dressed, he believes “diversity” to be some type of “old, old wooden ship used in the Civil War era.”
