Everyone enjoys movies. Yet, as viewers, there comes a point when we stop noticing the strange costume details that even the producers might not have seen. In this article, Multisitez has put together a list of costume mishaps, mistakes, etc. that didn’t get noticed in the movies but were quickly caught by fans.
1. Titanic (1997)
In the movies Titanic, Rose was played by the young and beautiful Kate Winslet. Remember the scene where she lifts her head so we can see the mole or beauty mark on her left cheek. The mark on her right cheek also stays the same throughout the movie and when she’s talking to Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio). Check it out again if you haven’t seen it yet.
2. Braveheart (1995)
Woad was a blue body paint that Celtic tribes used in battles in the past. They stopped using it around the end of the Roman Empire, which was about 800 years before the events of the Braveheart movie. Kilts were still worn in Scotland a long time after Wallace’s time. Also, the rules and patterns for kilts used in the movie were made in the Victorian era, which was a long time after the time of this movie.
3. Dirty Dancing (1987)
With her dances and moves, the popular character “Baby” in the movie “Dirty Dancing” changed from a shy girl to a confident teenager. But something wasn’t quite right. Baby’s denim shorts looked like they were from the 1980s, but the movie was set in 1963.
4. King Arthur (2004)
Even though this movie is set in 400 A.D., we see knights on saddles with stirrups. But metal stirrups didn’t come to Europe until a few hundred years after the fall of the Western Roman Empire.
5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
The events of the Harry Potter movies happen in the 1990s. In the movie, Harry Melling plays Dudley Dursley, who sits in the living room wearing shorts with the G-Unit logo at the bottom. The interesting thing is that 50 Cent started the brand in 2003.
6. The Danish Girl (2015)
The Danish Girl is set in the 1920s, in 1926. In the movie, the women wear costumes and clothes that fit well. Yet, back then, women wore clothes with a shapeless or columnar shape.
7. Django Unchained: Django Time Travels (2012)
In this movie, Django’s sunglasses did make Jamie Foxx’s character look cool, which is why many of us went to see it. The funny thing is that the movie is set in 1858, when those glasses didn’t exist.
8. Pretty Woman (1990)
In the popular romantic comedy Pretty Woman, Julia Roberts’ character Vivian won our hearts. In one scene, Vivian took a bite out of a croissant. When she took the second bite, the croissant turned out to be a pancake.
9. Notting Hill (1999)
One of the most memorable mistakes in this beautiful movie might be when William (Hugh Grant) was interviewing Anna (Julia Roberts) in a hotel suite. In the next scene, when the two wide brass door handles quickly changed to narrow brass finger plates with closed lattices, this was noticed.
