* In the ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' remake, the Greek Gods have Medieval European suits of armors. Yes, from the High Middle Ages - complete with armor plates. The Greek Goddesses and the civilians do wear Hellenic costumes, though. So it is part Hollywood Costuming, and part ''AnachronismStew''.

* Ralphie's mother in "AChristmasStory" sports a 70s style perm despite the story being set in the 40s. And that's even weirder when you remember that the movie was filmed in [[TheEighties 1982]]! An early case of [[TwoDecadesBehind Still The Seventies]], perhaps?

* Christine's frizzy EightiesHair in [[http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1107/810149102_411af0bb18.jpg the original production of]] ''Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' (though, that could be an homage to [[http://www.goldensilents.com/stars/normankerrymaryphiblinphantom.jpg the 1925 silent film]] too, which would not necessarily still be this, as Mary Philbin's hair was naturally that wavy and was up for most of the film), although the visual designer of the original production stated it was supposed to be styled after the hairstyles seen [[http://preraphaelitesisterhood.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/12/helen-of-troy.jpg in pre-Raphaelite paintings]]. Over the years, this has evolved into much [[http://www.sanfranciscosentinel.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/phantom-1-2.jpg tidier]] ringlets.

* Averted with MadMen, the costume designer Janie Bryant worked very hard to get the clothes of the era just right for every character's taste, social class, sensibilities, age, and occupation along with fitting them to recurring themes in an episode. She even went right down to the women's underwear to stay period-accurate (those aren't spanx or elastic pantyhose, those are are actual girdles and bras constructed in the costume department).

* ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'', mostly for the Scots. Specifically, they wear the belted plaid, a piece of clothing that would not emerge for several centuries, and in a manner which is entirely ahistorical- one historian described it as the equivalent of Cromwell's Roundheads wearing modern business suits with the jackets back-to-front.

* The movie adaption of ''[[Theatre/Anne of the Thousand Days]]'' has Genevieve Bujold wearing French hoods as 60's era headbands. (For the record a French hood is supposed to have a bag attached to the back to cover the hair, and they were kept on by ties that knotted under the chin. The knots are sometimes left out in paintings of the day.)
