(BANG) -

Orlando Bloom is keeping his film costumes so he is son can wear them as fancy dress outfits when he is older.

The actor has starred in numerous historical films, such as 'The Three Musketeers', 'Kingdom of Heaven' and the first three 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies, and he intends to preserve as many of his outfits as he can for his six-month-old baby Flynn, his first child with wife Miranda Kerr.

He said: "When I worked on 'The Three Musketeers'. I embraced all of it. I think that getting dressed up and stuff (I love a frock) really informs what you're doing.

"The boots are staying, and the costumes, too. That's definitely a fancy dress outfit one day down the line - probably for my son."

Orlando has mostly played heroic and courageous characters on the big screen, and he admits it was great to play villain the Duke of Buckingham in 'The Three Musketeers' - which also stars Milla Jovovich, Matthew Macfadyen and Christoph Waltz.

The experience of playing a bad guy is something he wants to repeat on a regular basis.

He said: "Bad guys definitely have the fun and I want to do more of that. The Duke of Buckingham is more of a petulant child than a swashbuckler but it was a lot of fun as it was a really different kind of a character to play."
