So for halloween this year my roommate and I have decided to throw a killer party and go all out. After debating on costumes I've decided Leeloo from the fifth element and my boyfriend as corban dallas. I thought it'd be a cute and slightly original couples costume. I wanna do the costumes from when they're getting on the ship ("Leeloo Dallas multipass").

I figure my Corban's outfit will be relatively easy, black pants with a orange shirt and hopefully with a bit of thrifting I can find a similar coat which I can then alter. Although I'm ok with showing a bit I'm not a huge fan of slutty costumes so the shirt will most likely be longer, but that's an easy find. Then I figured I'd just get some gold leggings and paint on stripes and add a belt. Now the one I'm having real trouble with is the suspenders. Ideas so far include wide elastic dyed and sewn, vinyl, or just plain wide ribbon. I don't want anything that's gonna cause some cammel toe action when I move but I don't want it to be too baggy.
I figure once I get it all figured out it'll be a relatively easy costume but I need a little help with ideas.

here's what i did for my leeloo costume... i found an orange leotard at the thrift shop, looked at pictures from the movie, and cut out the parts that i didn't need and the holes in the straps to match.  i left the raw edges, but it held together and looked pretty close to the movie.



good luck!

For his jacket, maybe an old Army jacket?  The color would be perfect.

Awesome idea by the way.  Hubby and I feel compelled to watch it everytime it is on. LOL
