Clockwork Orange "Droog" Costume Ideas
A Clockwork Orange is popular novella written by Anthony Burgess in 1962 that has since developed a cult-like following.
Stanley Kubrick produced a film adaptation that was released in 1971 and starred Malcolm McDowell in the lead role of Alex DeLarge, or "Alexander the Large" as he often referred to himself.
The story is set in the future and the droogs (Alex's friends) are a gang of violent dim wits.
There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.
