Romeo & Juliet Costume Ideas (Movie Adaption)

What better way to commemorate love than to dress as the most iconic couple in literary history - Romeo and Juliet. In Baz Luhrmann's 1996 adaptation of the famous tale, Leonardo DiCaprio plays the lovestruck Romeo, while Claire Danes plays the beautiful Juliet.

• Romeo

In the star-crossed lover movie scene the dashing Romeo, wear brown or black shoes, brown corduroy or fleece pants, and a brown, long sleeved shirt. Next, wear a belt with a side strap to hold a prop sword as seen in the image. Purchase prop armor and drape it upon the shoulders and triceps.

Romeo wears gold armor, but feel free to experiment with colors of your liking. Romeo wears black gloves and has slicked back, dirty blonde hair. To make the costume unique, accessorize to your liking.

• Juliet

In the star-crossed lover movie scene Juliet, wear white, high-heeled shoes, and a white dress with a wide bottom. Wear your hair with a circular braid on top, but let the rest of it drape over your shoulders (which also helps to hide the dress's straps).

Next, you will need a pair of angel wings, which can most certainly be ordered on Amazon or picked up at your local Halloween store. Finally, feel free to get creative with the make up and jewelry or accessories.

• In My Opinion

The best part about the Romeo and Juliet couples costume is its versatility. As you see, the concept works with the angel/knight look, but also the casual beach vibes look. If you show up to your next Halloween gathering as the iconic Romeo and Juliet, you'll be sure to make a lasting impression neither the Montague or Capulet family could deny.
