Costume design must be one of the tougher jobs when working on a movie. With everything from clothing materials and fashion accessories right down to something as innocuous as belt loops to consider, designers need to make sure that everything fits together perfectly. Otherwise, the eagle-eyed online community will pounce on their little mistakes. Which is pretty much what happened with these 40 embarrassing examples.
40. Braveheart – William Wallace’s kilt
The kilt is such a stereotypical piece of Scottish attire that it’s hard to accept that it didn’t exist in the 13th and 14th centuries, when William Wallace fought for independence against England. Not that Mel Gibson, who plays Wallace in Braveheart, would let silly facts get in the way of a movie where he gets to bash the British. After all, he proudly dons a kilt throughout the whole thing.
39. Captain America: The First Avenger – Jim Morita’s earpiece
It’s amazing that no one told actor Kenneth Choi, playing soldier Jim Morita, to pull his hat down to cover his decidedly 21st-century headset in a movie set in the Second World War. Sure, it’s a Marvel movie, so no one’s exactly watching it to learn about the conflict’s realities, but a Bluetooth headset is surely a bridge too far.
