Do you associate your cosplays with movies/music?

Let me elaborate: When you take a glance at one of your cosplays, do you have flashbacks and say something like "Ah, I remember that show I was watching while making that...."

I was working on a pair of boots one day and was watching Requiem of a Dream at the same time. It's a WEIRD movie. So now whenever I look at the finished boots, I can't help but get this creeped out feeling because of it.

So does anyone else have stories like this?

Mine's a bit different; I associate music (and rarely movies; usually music what with having some synesthesia) with anything ELSE. E.G., kickass video game commercial or trailer comes out, if the music for it is amazing, chances are I'll want to play it and if I get a copy of the music itself, it evokes that same "cool" feeling/imagery. So much of the time, whatever character cosplay I'm making will get it's theme, soundtrack, or some oddly fitting music like off of an amv/gmv, stuck in my head whenever I pull it out/work on it.

I associate "Nemo" by Nightwish with my Shana but it has nothing to do with making the costume. I originally heard of the anime because it was used in an AMV at a con one year, "Nemo" was the song used in the video. Ironically, the very next year I was cosplaying as her.
