With Tarantino’s much-heralded ninth film being released next week, it’s a great excuse to delve into his cinematic history and emerge with a belter of a costume for tonight’s Lighthouse shindig. With arguably more characters available for women than men, you can take your pick of some all-time greats before settling in to re-enjoy the classic Pulp Fiction.
