Kill Bill is a martial arts film created by Quentin Tarantino in the early 2000’s. The film stars Beatrix Kiddo, (only known as The bride in the first iteration and also Black Mamba) portrayed by Uma Thurman. The story centres around Beatrix Kiddo’s revenge over a group of assassins, who answer to Bill who tried to kill her and her unborn child during the wedding. The film garnered praise from many critics and was a huge success with the public. The film was initially only meant to be told in one film but due the long runtime was split into two parts.
The kill Bill costume most synonymous with the films is the costume worn by Beatrix Kiddo. I will include links below to the items need including all accessories along with descriptions on each item.
Kill Bill costume
For the Kill Bill Costume, I have included two options for you. The first Beatrix Kiddo costume I found on amazon. This is a cheaper alternative. It is a one piece unitard costume made from shiny spandex. The material is quite thin and skin tight. The zipper held (you would be surprised the amount of times the zipper fails on this unitard costumes).Its quite revealing as well. It a good alternative if you are on a specific budget.
Custom Kill Bill Costume
The second Kill Bill costume is a little more expensive but I think you are getting a mot more for the your money. I got this on Etsy. The Beatrice Kiddo costume comes with the Jacket and pants. The material used to made this costume is cotton. I much more authentic costume than the cheaper alternative I mentioned above. Make sure you provide the correct measurements to the seller upon your order to avoid any delays. Overall a excellent Kill Bill cosplay, well worth the price if you ask me.
Kill Bill Hattori Hanzo sword
For the Beatrice Kiddo sword, I went for the Hattori Hanzo, that appears in the first film. This a prop sword that is made from steel so don’t go swinging around the place as you would do some harm as it is quite sharp. The sword is a good size. Overall a good purchase, perfect for the Kill Bill costume.
The blonde wig, I got on amazon. This was an incredible wig, beautifully made with nice layers. The cap can adjust to make head sizes. It doesn’t look fake at all. My only disappointment was the shade of colour as it is much lighter than the image shown. If this seller had more accurate colours available, this would be my go too place to get wigs, however I can trust the advertised images to be the colour of the wig I’m getting. Overall excellent quality wig, worth every penny but the seller needs to update the pictures.
Kill Bill yellow shoes
To finally Finnish off the Kill Bill costume, i got a pair of yellow Beatrice Kiddo style shoes. These are as close as your ever going to get to the match the shoes used in the Kill Bill costume. They are a little pricey to buy just for a costume and they are not a colour I would be keen on for everyday use. The shoes are fantastic though, they feel very comfortable and are worth the price but I can’t see myself using these outside of the costume.
