21 Worst Costume Mistakes In Film History

Diply 3 Jul 2018

Okay, I'll admit that I'm not one to notice the small details of life. I remember when I first got my drivers license and got behind the wheel that I couldn't remember how to get to certain places that I'd been to millions of times before. I was just used to being taken there while I daydreamed in the passenger seat!

But this lack of attention to detail has definitely gotten me concerned, especially when I realized I missed a few of THESE major costume mistakes in my favorite movies.

1. Braveheart

History has proven that people in Scotland didn't wear kilts until about the 16th century. However, Mel Gibson's character can be seen rocking one throughout the entire Braveheart movie, which takes place in the 1300s.

Have you ever noticed that all of the women in the film have shaven legs and armpits? Not only is it hard to believe that the women in the concentration camps were so concerned about their body hair, but shaving wasn't much of a trend for European women in the 1940s.

These thin, frameless glasses that Robert Gross wears are far too modern of a look for the 1920s.

11. The Ten Commandments

Though this film has a ton of historical inaccuracies, one of the most obvious is Nefertiti's dress. The dye needed to make a dress that color simply doesn't exist in nature and therefore couldn't be made at that time in history.

In this iconic scene, Russel Crowe's shorts can be seen underneath his tunic, and I think it's safe to say that nobody in Ancient Rome had bike shorts...
