Costume Ideas: Back to the Future Paper Props
Believe it or not the film Back to the Future celebrated its 30th ANNIVERSARY this past November.
Sure the film came out in theaters on July 3, 1985, but TRUE fans celebrated on November 5th.
Because that was the day Doc Brown invented time travel... silly.
Well, though the BTTF celebration is over (though you can peruse pics on the still active website WereGoingBack.com) there's a treasure trove of downloadable, printable paper props from the Back to the Future Trilogy that will give that extra piece of detail to make your BTTF character costume from go "meh" to "WHOAH."
Well things like the "Tales from Space" comic book complete with Red Ryder BB Gun ad on the back.
An "OUTATIME" license plate complete with August '86 registration sticker.
An 1885 map to the cave where the DeLorean is hidden.
So take a look and get some great ideas.
Or a poncho-wearing, wild west Marty?
Or that crazy old lady who wanted to save the clock tower and told Marty "don't forget your flyer!"
Or Doc Brown?
Go HERE to get to the printable props section.
The original link on the main page has been removed, but you can still get to it through this super secret path I've cut through the woods HERE.
And if you don't know who Marty McFly and Doc Brown are, get yourself edu-macated my friend by buying the brand-spankin'-new Blu-Ray/DVD set that was just released. (Amazon links below.)
Nothing jogs the brain like watching the films again, and they're a pretty good trilogy overall.
Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta find a pair of Nike Hyperdunks under $300 for my 2015 Marty costume...
