Royal Tenenbaums is one of my favorite movies, so when I had to make a last minute costume for a party I immediately wanted to try creating this Royal Tenenbaums couple costume. My boyfriend and I threw these costumes together in 1 day by visiting thrift shops and getting together some simple things! The few main items you really need to get right, for Richie: the sweatband, scarf, and sunglasses. Tennis outfit and racket are optional, although the suit worked well.
Margo needs: the striped shirt with white collar ( I found a shirt that worked and then just wore a black skirt), a fur coat, and little girl hair clips, a cigarette also helped. Also Margo ladies need to have hair that is around shoulder length and straighten it for the Margo effect. These were easy thrift store finds that made really remarkable costumes. I have never gotten so many compliments on a costume before! They were a total hit at the party.
