This year’s Bestival theme is The Future and if you’re on the lookout for an original costume idea, we’re here to help!
We’ve put our heads together and come up with the ultimate list of Bestival costume ideas inspired by films and TV shows set in the future.
Some are obvious, some are less obvious… But all of them will make sure you have a cracking costume for Bestival 2016!
Let’s start with the ultimate futuristic costume idea – Doctor Who!
A time lord from another planet, Doctor Who has been travelling through time for 900 years.
Live long, prosper, and dress up as your favourite Star Trek character for Bestival 2016!
You could even make this a group costume with Star Trek outfits for the rest of your friends!
Next up is Avatar! Set in the year 2154 on Pandora, a fictional Earth-like moon in a distant planetary system, this Neytiri outfit would be the perfect costume for Bestival 2016’s future theme. Complete your costume with a Neytiri wig and plenty of blue body spray!
The Hunger Games
Set in the future (although no-one’s really sure whether it’s the near or distant future), this Katniss Everdeen costume would make a brilliant futuristic outfit for Bestival 2016.
You may be thinking, “Why is Thunderbirds on this list of Bestival costume ideas?” But little do many people know that it’s actually set in the mid-2060s – a hundred years after the series was first broadcast in 1965.
Planet of the Apes
Planet of the Apes tells the story of an astronaut crew who crash-land on a strange planet in the distant future – making it the perfect inspiration for your Bestival costume. Plus it’s an easy costume – this monkey onesie would be ideal!
