Provincial Belle Dress/Apron

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!


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.

BBC's Ron Hood

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.

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?

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?

Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber

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.
