Easy 'Westworld' Costume Ideas For Halloween 2017 That'll Have You Park-Ready In No Time
The HBO hit may have gotten snubbed at the Emmys this year, but that doesn't mean one of these easy Westworld Halloween costumes won't be award-worthy. One of the greatest things about being a character from Westworld is that whether or not others actually watch the show, most costumes are recognizable from being inspired by the iconic Wild West era. And other costumes that aren't Wild West-themed will still make anyone who wears them feel like a badass straight from the fictional park.
An element about Westworld that sets the sci-fi series apart is its unbelievably designed costumes. (It was even nominated for an Outstanding Costumes Emmy this year.) But don't be fooled by the intricate and carefully detailed wardrobe pieces, such as the female hosts' full, floor-length dresses and the male hosts' multi-layered cowboy attire. Most of these looks can be simplified and achieved in no time.
Main characters like Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Maeve (Thandie Newton) have multiple looks that fans can channel, depending on their mood or favorite scene. There are also supporting characters like Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson), Clementine (Angela Sarafyan), and Hector (Rodrigo Santoro) who all have unique outfits that shouldn't be overlooked. And as far as the Man in Black (Ed Harris) and ringleader Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins), their characters may be complex, but their outfits are completely doable.
Yes, Westworld characters are complicated, but their Halloween costumes don't have to be.
1. Dolores' Staple Look
After just one season of the HBO hit, its lead's staple attire became instantly recognizable and iconic. There's also an option to pair it with cowboy boots and take the look the whole way.
2. Dolores' Pants Look
Join the Westworld hosts' revolution with Dolores' badass pants look. Like Dolores, anyone who channels this mindset and wears this get-up is not to be messed with.
