Look through these easy to follow costume guides to see how to look like your favorite characters from the popular Blade Runner franchise. The original movie starring Harrison Ford was based on the hit sci-fi book, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” The Blade Runner series has gained much popularity among science fiction lovers especially with the recent revival of the sequel. The first film adaptation of Blade Runner debuted in 1982. Interestingly, though, the film did not see impressive numbers at the box office. However, the fanbase of the Blade Runner franchise grew over the years as a cult classic. From Rick Deckard and Joi to Officer K and Zhora, look like each of these favorite characters from the Blade Runner series.
Rick Deckard is the main character from the 1982 Blade Runner film. His character also appears in the second film, although much older. Deckard is a former police officer who becomes a blade runner. His fashion sense is still that of an undercover police officer, though. His 80’s “futuristic” Deckard costume still requires that unforgettable Rick Deckard shirt, Brown trench coat, and the classic Blade Runner tie. Although Deckard is the main character in the first film, he partners with Officer K on a new adventure in the 2017 sequel. Events of the movie reveal that Deckard had a daughter whose existence he didn’t know about.
If you’ve seen the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, you should know Officer K. Like Rick Deckard, Officer K is responsible for hunting and retiring rogue replicants. However, both blade runners have entirely different tastes when it comes to fashion. While Deckard’s look aligns to the typical cop appeal, Office K, played by Ryan Gosling, has more of a trendy swagger. In the 2017 film, Officer K is found wearing a pullover knitted sweater with a Shearling leather long coat. K struggles with determining if he genuinely is a replicant as he begins to remember past memories that do not seem artificially created.
Blade Runner, is a famous American science fiction film loosely based on Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The dystopian franchise was first adapted into a movie in 1982. Several comics, stage plays, and radio shows have been created about the franchise. Though Blade Runner underperformed in North American theaters, it later became a cult classic and is sometimes regarded as one of the top sci-fi films of all time.
A sequel to the 1982 film, Blade Runner 2049, was released in 2017. Before that, a short film was released in 2012 to explain the events that happened between 2019 and 2049. These were the years in which the first and second sequels took place. Some short films released in 2017 include Blade Runner Blackout 2022, 2036: Nexus Dawn, and 2048: Nowhere to Run.
