Robert Angier

in the film, The Prestige, Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman), “The Great Danton,” is an aristocratic, 19th century musician who develops a dangerous rivalry with another magician, Alfred Borden. Based on the real-life magician from London, his costumes are typical of what a wealthy man would’ve worn in Victorian England.

Mal

Existing only as a figment of her husband’s memory in the film Inception, Mal (Marion Cotillard) is nevertheless an extremely powerful and often damaging presence. She and her husband, Dominic Cobb, excelled in the manipulation of people’s minds. Unfortunately, they pushed the limits of their abilities too far and Mal lost the ability to differentiate between reality and dreams. This guide is for her pivotal windowsill gown, a deep purple dress with heels.

Ariadne

An architecture student in France, Ariadne (Ellen Page) is recruited by Dominic Cobb as part of a team assigned to complete an inception, or the planting of an idea in someone’s mind. She possesses brilliant architectural design abilities, creating the subconscious maps through which the team navigates in the movie Inception. Ariadne is also the only one who calls out Dominic on his erratic mental state that could endanger the entire team. She dresses like a normal college student, but with an extra fashionable French flair.

Dominic Cobb

Dominic Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) from the movie Inception is a skilled Extractor – someone who slips into peoples’ dreams, steals their secrets and sells them to competitors. He used to extract legally, but now he is a fugitive wanted for his wife Mal’s murder. Despite his fugitive status, a company hires him to perform an inception, or the placement of an idea into a person’s mind. He agrees, but he and his team must battle both inner and outer demons to succeed. He dresses well in trousers, button-downs and leather jackets, his trusty spinning top always in his pocket.

Murph

In Interstellar, Murph Cooper (Mackenzie Foy and Jessica Chastain) is a bright, precocious girl named after Murphy’s Law. But that doesn’t necessarily mean bad things must happen, as her dad Coop is quick to remind her. For instance the ghost she takes notes on doesn’t appear to mean her any harm.

Cooper

In Interstellar, blight has caused humankind to regress to an agrarian society, and Cooper’s (Matthew McConaughey) simple white T-shirt, work jacket, and jeans suggest he’s done the same. But his pilot’s watch hints that he’s still hanging onto his greater ambitions.

Batman

Batman (Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, or Adam West, depending on your age) is the secret identity assumed by billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne, driven by the murder of his parents. For this costume, we recommend you upgrade the mask, gloves, boots, and cape — basically everything except the chest and belt.

Joker

What do you get when you cross intelligence, homicidal tendencies, a penchant for “gags”, and an obsession with Batman? The Joker (Heath Ledger) of course. While his look may have changed through the years, his love of the color purple and mayhem stays the same in the Dark Knight.

Selina Kyle as Catwoman

In the Dark Knight Rises, Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) is a cat burglar who’s cunning enough to steal from Batman. Here you can dress in the Catwoman guise or go more low key for the getaway.

Commissioner Gordon

James Gordon (Gary Oldman) is the commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department and confidante to Batman. He should be managing from police headquarters, but he’s always the first to don a SWAT vest and down into the sewers.
