Clock Work Orange Movie Costume Ideas

Are you a fan of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange? If the answer is yes, you might consider dressing up in costume as Alex De Large. Alex is the main character in this movie and he is a scary guy. He believes in commitment. Unfortunately he decides to commit himself to violence.

Alex is a 15 year old who loves classical music, enjoys violence and rape, he is funny and intelligent, and a great Halloween costume theme too.

The terrorizing reign he goes on is simply frightening. Alex is arrested and chosen to become the first prisoner to be subjected to an experimental treatment called Ludovico's Technique. This treatment is supposed to change Alex's view on violence and it does. Alex becomes docile and frightened. When he is released he becomes the victim. When the programming is reversed, Alex becomes the old violent thug he once was.

It's a movie that gives you a lot to think about, with themes like violence, crime, rage, punishment, society, and much more. This is an extremely thought provoking and violent movie. In it we can see the good of mankind, and everything that is wrong with mankind. It's a great costume idea. Alex's costume consists of:

  • A White Button Down Long Sleeve Shirt
  • White Pants
  • White Suspenders
  • A Man's Sports Cup
  • A Black Derby Hat
  • Black Combat Boots
  • Eyeball Gummy Candies or a Plastic Eyeball
  • One Set of Upper and Lower False Eyelashes
