Llewyn Davis from Inside Llewynn Davis

Llewyn Davis (played by Oscar Isaac) is a struggling folk musician on the edge of a breakdown. He bounces between his dreams and harsh reality during the winter of 1969. These unsteady course takes him back to old friends, old lovers, and old wounds that he hasn’t properly seen to. Through the ups and downs of the music industry – and what happens when he can’t break into it – Llewyn has to figure himself out or risk losing it all. His costume is a simple daily look from the ’60s, rounded by his ever-present guitar case and the cat that acts as his companion through most of the movie.

Marge Gunderson

In Fargo, Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand) is the local police chief in sleepy Brainerd, Minnesota. Seven months pregnant, she finds herself investigating a murder case involving a car salesman who’s acting suspicious, you betcha.

Jesus Quintana from The Big Lebowski

In The Big Lebowski, Jesus Quintana (played by John Turturro) is a bowler who competes against the Dude, Walter, and Donny.  Jesus’ personality is flamboyant and over-the-top, highlighted by his bright purple wardrobe.  While Jesus wears a one-piece purple jumpsuit, a similar look can be created using track pants and a polo shirt, while allowing for greater comfort and ease when nature calls. If you have to go against someone in bowling it might as well be “The Jesus”. His choice of jumpsuits and bowling ball shining skills make him, at the very least, an entertaining opponent.

Chad Feldheimer

In Burn After Reading, Brad Pitt plays Chad Feldheimer, a hyper, half-wit personal trainer at Hardbodies Gym. He finds a computer disc in the locker room and is sure it’ll change his life. He’s definitely right about that…

Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski

Jeffrey Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), or as he would prefer to be called, the Dude, is an avid bowler and otherwise total slacker. He gets caught up in a kidnapping scheme after getting confused with millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski. That sweater really ties the outfit together, Dude.

Anton Chigurh

In No Country for Old Men, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) is a cold-blooded killer with a strange appearance and stranger weapon of choice. He also plays a mean game of heads-or-tails. Call it, friend-o.

Walter Sobchak from The Big Lebowski

In The Big Lebowski, Walter Sobchak (played by John Goodman) is a Vietnam veteran with a temper who is on the same bowling team as the Dude and Donny. It’s hard to decide whether you want Walter on your side or if you want to stay away from him. With his military vest and random weapons, Walter is ready to go to war over anything. He’ll even take you out over a game of bowling. Walter is the Dude’s best friend, though his tendency to use his pistol to settle an argument can be stressful for the Dude’s pacifist nature.  Walter often talks down to Donny, but when Donny dies, Walter takes the initiative to try and spread his ashes at the beach. Some of the most iconic pieces of Walter’s costume include his yellow aviators, tan vest, and his pistol.  If you don’t have an old metal Folgers can lying around in your basement or garage, a metal urn shaped like a coffee can will certainly do the trick.
