Aside from being one of the most well-known biblical characters, Noah is also a 2014 epic film based very loosely on the story of Noah’s Ark. Russell Crowe plays the title character, and other notables such as Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly are along for the rain-soaked ride.
Noah costumes for Halloween and other special events can be as simple as a brown body-length robe with white or gray wig, mustache and beard. You can also accessorize with a walking staff, or hatchet / hammer. He has to build the Ark somehow.
The outfit Russell Crowe wore in the movie has multiple layers of brown leather and cloth, complete with simple brown shoes or boots and a long, brown scarf.
In the movie Jennifer Connelly plays Noah’s wife Naameh. Dressing up like Naameh for Halloween means wearing an outfit very similar to Noah’s costume.
A heavy, warm ankle-length coat is worn over a brown knit top, which ties with ropes or strings in the front. Underneath that is a simple light brown or purple cloth top. Naameh’s costume includes dark green, long-sleeved pants which are tucked into brown suede leather boots.
Wearing either a Naameh or Noah costume can be accomplished if you own a lot of warm weather gear that is rough looking. But if you live in a southern climate or do not have the necessary clothing, you can hit the Ark running with one of the many officially licensed movie costumes available online
Noah is portrayed as both a child and an adult in the 2014 movie, so both kids and grown-ups can join in the biblically themed Halloween fun.
The Noah in this film is father to three sons, Shem (Douglas Booth), Ham (Logan Lerman), and Japheth (Leo McHugh Carroll). Effective Halloween costume portrayals of the younger characters closely mimic the styles of Noah and his wife.
The talented Sir Anthony Hopkins appears in Noah as the grandfather of the main character. As Methuselah, Hopkins is a wise and ancient bible figure. To complement and accentuate his accelerated age, the character wears tired and worn dark brown and gray wraps and coats.
Emma Watson plays Ila, a young girl who is the only survivor of a slaughtered clan. Noah and Naameh adopt her, and she becomes an important part of the movie. An effective Ila costume requires simple, loose brown cloth coverings, as do most of the costumes in the movie.
