Django Unchained (Cowboy Costumes)

Django Unchained is a 2012 American western film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson. The film was released on December 25, 2012, in North America. The film received very positive reviews from critics (despite controversy over its strong use of the word "nigger") and was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture. Christoph Waltz received several accolades for his performance and won the Golden Globe, the BAFTA and his second Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

This film was appreciated by people from all walks of life, and especially by western movie lovers.  It was indeed a refresher and took us back to the era of western movies. Only a cowboy movie buff will understand what I’m talking about when I speak about classics such as  Bridge over the river kwai, For a few dollars more, Man of the west, The good the bad the ugly, The professionals, Once upon a time in the west, and the list ever end.

The film plot is set in the antebellum era of the Deep South and Old West, the film follows a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) who treks across the United States with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) on a mission to rescue his wife (Keri Washington) from a cruel plantation owner (DiCaprio). Davis said the idea of the costume came partly from Rhett Butler, and that Don Johnson's signature Miami Vice look inspired the cream-colored linen suit in the film. King Schultz's faux chinchilla coat was inspired by Telly Savalas in Kojak. Davis also revealed that many of her costume ideas did not make the final cut of the film, leaving some unexplained characters such as Zoë Bell's tracker, who was intended to drop her bandana to reveal an absent jaw.   And here is the rest of it.

The Cowboy costume displayed in the entire movie was made to detail with perfection. It’s not always easy to pull off western outfits with such ease. Every costume worn by the actors in the movie personifies class and character. My favorite is the bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz).
After going back and forth watching this movie, I got inspired and thought of writing a blog on a  few western outfits worn by some of the characters in the movie.



The Bounty Hunter



This costume is somewhat like what Christoph Waltz had worn in one of the scenes. Starting from the typical black western hat worn by the model in the image. What I liked the most is the pin-striped vest over a satin silver shirt. A  leather belt with two classic stainless steel frame revolvers at the sides. Straight-fit worn-out jeans and cowboy boots, and the iconic black overcoat complete the western look. This is a perfect example of a bounty hunter who is street smart and likes to dress in darker shades.


The cruel plantation owner





Leonardo DiCaprio is Calvin Candie in the movie, alternately charming but brutal owner of Candyland,
 a plantation where slaves are forced to fight to the death in boxing matches called "Mandingo fights.
In most of the movie Calvin has worn a brown overcoat similar to the model in this image.
It’s a brown overcoat with a lighter brown vest inside. Typical cowboy style. A red bandana over a blue denim shirt again very cowboy. An oval steel buckle with a bull with long horns made on it. The brown leather belt has bullet slots. Almost ditto to  Calvin’s choice of denim, the model is wearing distressed blue denim with brown boots.
This entire outfit describes Leonardo DiCaprio’s role and personality in the film.
