Subject:Provincial Belle Dress/Apron
Posted by:blesh.
Time:12:17 am.
I've been researching for the past week and turned up no results. I was wondering if anybody knew of website with a costume study for Belle's blue dress from the beginning of Beauty and the Beast. If not, any suggestions for a pattern (or combination of patterns) that would work with only minor alterations would be muchly appreciated. I'll probably wind up browsing through patterns for this one, but I thought I'd see if somebody had already done some of the dirty work before I spent the time on that. :) Thank you!

Hello,
if you are interested in Moonacre costumes, this site has lot of them, in great resolution . They are for journalists, premiere of the movie will be here next month, so I do not know, how long  the pictures will be displayed. I didn't see most of the pics anywhere else....

Does anyone knew where I can find costume information for the movie Legend? I would like to make the black wedding dress (either the dancing dress or Lili wearing it.) for a convention I am attending in nine months. Any information you can send my way would be great.

Can anyone think of a period drama set in the Art Nouveau period (ca. 1890-1914)? So far I've come up with My Fair Lady (1964) and Klimt (2006). Am I missing anything?

Subject:BBC's Ron Hood
Posted by:aranelonline.
Time:3:31 pm.
Ok so it's not technically a movie, but I've made a gallery of Lady Marian's costumes from season 2 of BBC's series Robin Hood.

I don't have a season 1 gallery because I honestly didn't like the costumes, but season 2 is much better.

Clicking on the picture will take you to the gallery.

Here you go:

So I'm going to be making one of these girls from Apocalypto for one of my MA assignments. I'm going as far as doing the hair and costume as well. The costume I'm not scared of doing - the hair though is another story. How would I do this? I know I wrap synthetic hair or yarn around a bendable tube - but what is this tube exactly? And would it be light enough for the head?

Hair cutCollapse )

Also - how would you do the ear plugs? I could sculpt them and make a cast, but what would I make the positive out of that would be light enough for false stretch lobes?

Subject:Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber
Posted by:absintheskiss.
Time:9:02 pm.
Hello there!

I've just come home from seeing this film and feel I must sing it's praises for the costumes, you MUST see this!  Colleen Attwood has the perfect level of wear and grubby mixed with gothic beauty. 

Many films don't like to show wear and tear on clothing, but this one does, a worn collar here, a less than bright shirt there. I think I will be in froth mode for some time to come.

Subject:New member saying hello
Posted by:cinemafantasy.
Time:7:19 pm.
Mood: optimistic.
Hello all,

I apologize if this is all repetative from other costume groups, as I have just joined up several at once.

I run a couple web sites, one is dedicated to my own costume studies and making my own costumes (no selling). The other is a doll costuming business I own.

Here are the links to my sites:

The Pre-Raphaelite Woman
http://www.elvenhippiegypsy.com/

and Cinema-Fantasy
http://www.elvenhippiegypsy.com/cinema-fantasy.html

I'm not currently making anything for this Halloween, but I have completed several new costume studies for the small scale costumes I made. The most currect creation there would be a costume inspired by Claudia's Blue Bustle Gown from Interview with the Vampire. It's slighty smaller than 1/6 scale.

Take care everyone!

Sydne

Hope this is ok to mention here -- it *is* directly related to costumes & movies :-) Some friends & I just started a monthly podcast to discuss historical costume in movies, & we have an LJ community to go along with it. The comm is frockflicks & the podcast's RSS feed is here. You can either pop that into your fave. feeder or go to iTunes > Advanced & paste it there to subscribe.

Our first episode is on Marie Antoinette, & we posted some of our favorite 18th-century costume & history book resources over on our LJ. Next one will be on Elizabeth, just in time for the Golden Age.

Subject:Who is going to see Stardust this Saturday? I am!
Posted by:maudelynn.
Time:1:03 pm.
and I want heaps of my friends to go too.

I know it will be amazing. I was just talking to my friend Neil, who wrote the story, and we were talking about how this MUST be seen on the big screen! It is such a beautiful story and the sets and costumes are AMAZING!

I am so so excited, and you may say I am biased as I adore Neil and such, BUT ... I do like to think I have good taste in films too :)





and look at these stills

Oh my gosh! This is going to be so so so awesome:) I haven't been this excited about a film since The LOTR series.

Go! Go! Go! I know you are all going to love it!

XOXO

Subject:Howard's End
Posted by:madamekat.
Time:8:41 pm.
Mood: delighted.
I just saw Howard's End for the first time since I saw it in the theater in 1992. My god, the costumes were breath-taking! I wanted to make each one! My favorite was Margaret's black and white gown that she wears to Evie's wedding, most likely because I am making a gown with the same color combination in nearly the same style! I was overjoyed to see it! My gown was inspired by THIS GOWN, but will not be a copy.

And the hats! As a budding milliner, of course I wanted to make every hat. One of my favorites was the black velvet hat with rhinestone and feather accent Margaret wears to visit Mrs. Wilcox in the hospital. I also loved the white hat Mrs. Wilcox wears to luncheon at the Schlegel's town house. I'd love a pattern for that style!

As soon as I have some time, I want to play around with my Snap n Drag program so I can share screen caps.

Subject:I need some help!
Posted by:susies_crafts.
Time:11:15 pm.
Ok I am asking for some help here from all the fabulous people who know more than me! I got these little button snaps in the mail a while ago to go with my X-men costume but sadly I am not really sure how you are attach them???

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The picture isnt the best so I tried to lighten it up a bit. Basically it has the little snap and then just a black post. Am I supposed to hit it with a hammer or something? Any help would be great! Thanks!

Sorry if you see this more than once.
