Some filmic Halloween costume ideas, starting with that famous satin jacket.

'I Drive.'

‘I Drive.’

With Halloween looming, thoughts turn to film-inspired costumes: disheveled Bridesmaids, Mel Gibson with a Beaver puppet, maybe even a Nazi-attired Lars von Trier, or a group costume as The Human Centipede.

But when I caught up with my friends from Icon last night, they pointed out to me how popular ‘The Driver’ from Drive will be this year. Satin jacket, toothpick, hammer, you’re done!

There’s a great gallery of Drive inspired costumes at the film’s US Facebook page. Someone even roped their dog into the action.

If that’s too complex, grab a raincoat and go as George Smiley.
