It’s that time of year again. The pumpkins are carved, the classic horror is primed, another “Saw” movie is — wait, we’ve been spared those now. But with Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to pick out your costumes. What of 2011’s crop of films has inspired get-ups? Naturally everyone who thinks they’re hip will be sporting Ryan Gosling’s “Drive” jacket, so that will be passé on arrival. How about a bridesmaid dress from “Bridesmaids?” Or get 11 of your closest friends together for your very own human centipede? And what about a beaver puppet like Mel Gibson sports in, well, “The Beaver?” Jen Yamato has a few other suggestions.

Or you could go with Lisbeth Salander, which would be easy enough, given H&M’s new clothing line inspired by the character’s garb. [/Film]
