LONDON, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Escapade has announced its recent acquisition of a large selection of officially licensed Avatar costumes from American costume manufacturer Rubies.

Fancy dress costumes from the film, which has gone on to top the list of the highest grossing movies of all time, are expected to be among the most popular during Halloween 2010. 

The new collection includes full costumes of the film's most popular characters including Jake Sully and Neytri, as well as a large selection of Avatar masks, and wigs. Avatar fans can even recreate their favourite battles in the film with Na'vi spears and Na'vi bow and arrows.   

Customers now also have the ability to really get into the Avatar spirit with the official face paint and make up kit that can be easily used to transform users into a variation of any character from the film.

Escapade's Director, Bhupendra Maisuria said: "We are really excited by the arrival of the Avatar costumes. Almost everyone who has seen the film wonders what it would be like to live in Pandora or to be one of the Na'vi people and while Escapade can't get you to Pandora, we can now at least help with the fantasy of becoming your favourite Avatar character."

Further Avatar themed products that will soon be part of the collection include the deluxe Jake Sully costume and mask and Neytri wigs for adults.
