I find Famous Guns's lack of faith disturbing.

It's a good idea for a project. I was disappointed not to see The Fifth Element in there.

The two Colt Pythons were mirror images.

OK, I haven't seen Suspiria in a while. Probably more than six months. But I'm pretty sure Suzy's last name was Bannion. And I don't remember her dancing in anything but the borrowed black shoes.

(If you ever see someone with the nickname "Giallo Ballet Movie Comic Book Guy," remember this moment. )

These are great.

Famous Guitars needs Willie Nelson and Glen Hansard

Not to mention Devo guitarist Bob Mothersbaugh's Ibanez "Blue Potato" and Labaye 2x4.

Most of the guitars appear to be photos not of the actual iconic instruments, but of artist signature model products. Lame.

Lady Gaga (and others) gets some of her shoes from Kobi Levi (a couple of the designs are NSFW. The Facebook page is more work-friendly).

Re: This famous gun.
That would be better ascribed to Commander John J. Adams. I don't believe Dr.Morbius ever wielded a blaster at any time in the movie.

And, in the guitars, it's really odd to have Lennon and Harrison's guitars, and not also have a certain left-handed Höfner 500/1.

The Lennon guitar is just a reproduction of his second Rickenbacker 325. His first 325 was far more interesting and iconic, with a gold scratchplate and headstock plate, wrong knobs, replacement tremelo and a badly misaligned replacement bridge.

Missing the guitars of Joe Strummer and Chris Butler.

...and how could I forget Tom Verlaine's Jazzmaster?

That's a Jaguar (short scale neck, little pickups, metal control plate/pickguard bits). This is his Jazzmaster.

He got Kurt's shoe wrong. Cobain wore these.

I have (and still wear) the same style, bought in 1995 for $10 at a shoe store's "going out of business" sale on the border of Chinatown.

Shenanigans - Cobain's guitar is just a right-handed guitar turned upside down. Cobain didn't play a right-handed guitar though, he played left-handed guitars.

Those aren't Alex DeLarge's boots. Alex wore jump boots, not whatever that hideousness in the link is.

Wonder Woman (as played by Linda Carter) wore fabric kitten-heeled boots, or flats if she was doing anything remotely athletic in the scene. The style of boot depicted didn't become popular outside of fetish circles until the early '00s.
