    It's been far too long since the last challenge. I think @Rais and @beepbop tied for first in the last challenge, and I came second, but I think it's all right now to break tradition and restart the streetwear challenges.

    The Wes Anderson Movie Character Challenge

    Oct 18th - Nov 1st

    So the idea here is to dress like a character in a Wes Anderson film might dress. And not in a cosplay way - not looking so much for 1:1 - but simply by taking inspiration from the universes and styles.

    Now, Wes Anderson movies are pretty distinct, and not to everyone's taste. Some are great and some I'm not a fan of. That said, on the production side they are excellent, with fantastic scenes and costumes.

    I think there is something for most people. The villains in leather and black, the glasses and the mustaches, hats, tailoring, sportswear, and combinations thereof, bright colours or grey or muted earth tones, even a kimono. Your take is what's interesting: whether playful or serious.

    There is no prize. Winner gets to pick the next challenge. It's just for fun. Voting begins 2nd November.


    Some inspiration:

    Not my entry, but I was told this reminded people of Wes Anderson when I posted it a few months ago

    This is probably as good an excuse as any to get a red Adidas tracksuit.
