We’ve come to the end of the first week of Novelty Outfit Club, my Instagram outfit challenge for October, with the theme of “Bam! Movie Marathon!” I’ve been absolutely blown away by the incredible response! There have been so many amazing outfits and such fun and creative interpretations of the theme, I’ve really enjoyed seeing everyone’s photos! I thought I’d share some of my favourite entries here, plus a little round up of my outfits from the week.

There are some incredible outfits featuring a straight up movie theme, with popcorn, cats at the cinema and drive in movies! (Clockwise from top: @katieloveskittycats, @tessweck, @thecupcakequeen, @dinoprincesschar)
Quite a few nods to the Wizarding World, with these excellent outfits inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter! (Clockwise from top: @rebeccarowlands, @rubyqueenofcats, @nickabockaglory, @therealfairymary)
I was delighted to see so many gorgeous handmade dresses, in some truly excellent fabrics! (Clockwise from top: @miss.v.stitch Singin In The Rain, @sewistella Alice In Wonderland, @hp_sews Star Wars, @whiskandstitch Marvel Comics) I should mention these aren’t the only handmade outfits – there were lots of others too which I’ve included under other categories!
Lots of fun Disney outfits, and lovely to see a good Cath Kidston turnout! (Clockwise from top: @miss_lottie_rose Beauty & The Beast, @lespetitloups Peter Pan, @j9shappiness Gnomeo & Juliet, @noleenashby80 101 Dalmations)
I’ve been really impressed by the creative interpretations people have used to theme their outfits, I think it’s been a great way to look at your wardrobe in a new light! (Clockwise from top: @pinup_is_my_prozac Jurassic Park, @pippaquigley25 Despicable Me, @wotnotsmade Clockwise, @alyssak316 Pleasantville)
It’s been good to see a nod to some of the cult classics too. There has been such an interesting range of movies featured! (Clockwise from top: @vendouris My Neighbour Totoro, @lynnie_bop Gremlins, @kayjaymorrison Star Wars, @geminigemgems Labyrinth)
And so many gorgeous accessories! Serious jewellery envy here! (@chimpsteaparty Grease, @zannaspanner Peter Pan)
The photos I have featured here are really just the tip of the iceberg as there are so many more amazing outfits – over 100 posts on the tag already! I’ve just picked a few highlights and tried to include everyone who has taken part ( but apologies if I’ve missed anyone!) so do pop over to Instagram and have a proper look through the hashtag (click here to take a peek). I couldn’t have hoped for a better start to the challenge, and I’m glad to have discovered some awesome new ladies, and added quite a few dresses, jewellery and fabrics to my wishlist. I have a feeling this month will be fabulous for inspiration but terrible for my bank balance!!
The next theme starting tomorrow is “Adventure Is Out There!” Think anything travel related, the great outdoors, places you have visited or would love to visit, or anything you count as an adventure. I can’t wait to see the next week of outfits, this has already been so much fun!
