Festive movie costumes and props to get you in the Christmas spirit...
If like me you love this time of the year, then you'll enjoy this assortment of festive costumes and props from the movies to help you get in the holiday spirit.
Babes in Toyland movie costumes
First up are these classic costumes which evoke the winter season from Disney's 1961 festive musical, Babes in Toyland.
This joyful duo of costumes designed by Bill Thomas were worn by Tom Piper and Annette Funicello and photographed on display at the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives temporary exhibit at The Reagan Library in California's Simi Valley in July 2012.
The Santa Clause 3 costume
Next up is a much more familiar 'Santa' outfit worn by Tim Allen in 2006's Disney Christmas comedy sequel, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.
Ingrid Ferrin was Costume Designer on the film and the big red suit was photographed on display along with Martin Short's Jack Frost costume at Disney's D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center in California in August 2019.
The Grinch costume
You can't think about the holiday season for long without thinking about Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
In the 2000 big screen adaptation Jim Carrey played the furry green creature menacing Whoville and Rita Ryack was Costume Designer on the live-action film.
The Grinch Max animatronic dog
The Grinch's Santa suit and this animatronic dog named 'Max' with his faux reindeer antler, were photographed on display at Universal Studios Hollywood theme park from April 2011 to July 2012.
Jim Boulden was responsible for animatronics and Puppet Creator on this family fantasy comedy and you can see more masks, models, sets and props from The Grinch on this blog.
The Chronicles of Narnia White Witch costume
Another film I also think about at Christmas is The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and 'The White Witch Jadis' who froze the magical land of Narnia in a Hundred Year Winter.
In the first installment of The Chronicles of Narnia from 2005, Tilda Swinton played the frosty sorceress and wore fierce costumes designed by Isis Mussenden, like this fur-coated costume on display at Disney's D23 Fan Expo 2019.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Shiver costume
Keeping to the frosty theme and this next spellbinding costume belongs to 'Shiver' from 2018's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Richard E. Grant played the icy Regent of the Snow Realm in the Disney fantasy film and his wintery attire was designed by Jenny Beavan and captured on display at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema in October 2018.
The Huntsman: Winter's War Freya costume
In 2016's The Huntsman: Winter's War, Emily Blunt played the the icy sorceress 'Freya', the younger sister of the evil 'Queen Ravenna'.
For this prequel to 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman, Colleen Atwood was the Oscar-nominated Costume Designer responsible for the magical medieval fantasy looks and it was photographed on display at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum & Galleries in February 2017.
Anna and the Apocalypse movie costumes
And these costumes from the 2018 zombie musical, Anna and the Apocalypse, may not seem like the usual festive fare, but bloody snowmen and spiked candy canes aside, the undead carnage does take place around Christmastime.
This exhibit for the comedy-horror film with costumes designed by Fi Morrison was photographed at ArcLight Hollywood cinema in November 2018.
Love Actually movie costumes
One film I look forward to rewatching every Christmas is Richard Curtis' 2003 romantic comedy Love Actually, it just makes me laugh and cry and smile.
In the movie Bill Nighy plays an aging rock star named 'Billy Mack' hoping for one last hit with a Christmas-themed song and his music video is an homage to Robert Palmer's Addicted to Love and features women playing instruments clad in Santa's helper outfits, Billy's Video Vixens.
Joanna Johnston was Costume Designer on this heartwarming, hilarious and emotional movie and these costumes were photographed at the NBC Universal Experience that used to reside in the Lower Lot of Universal Studios Hollywood back in January 2015.
Noelle movie costumes
And the final collection of festive costumes are from a more recent movie, this time the Disney+ original, Noelle starring Anna Kendrick as Santa's daughter.
'Noelle Kringle' looks right at home in these looks at the North Pole, but when she goes searching for her missing brother, the inheritor to Santa's gift-giving legacy, she looks a bit more out of place in Phoenix, Arizona.
Four movie costumes from Noelle designed by Gary Jones were photographed at Disney's D23 Expo 2019 to help launch Disney's new streaming platform.
So did they help? Did these wintery and Yuletide costumes and props help lift your festive spirits? Maybe revisiting some of these holiday movies can help distract you from the real world as we all stay safer at home, snug and warm this festive season.
