Bits and Bobs

*  The first full length preview of Disney's live action Cinderella is out and wow, has it got cool costumes!

It's a mash up historical styles in vibrant technicolors with a whole host of styles that should appeal to costumers.  Check out some stills and an article on the costume here on Vogue and more stills here from Tom and Lorenzo.

* I was sad to miss the Colonial Williamsburg Symposium on Hair and Headdresses, word around the blogosphere was that it was a pretty fab event.  But CW has another interesting symposium coming up in March of next year Stitching Together a National Identity, which asks the question - what makes American quilts, clothing and needlework distinctly American?

*  I know it's not for everyone but I really enjoy the wacked out costumes of American Horror Story.  You can read some behind the scenes info with the costumer of the show, Lou Eyrich, here.

*  There have been scant few pictures of costumes from Game of Thrones upcoming season 5, but I was psyched to see this batch of pretty large images of a few of the characters in Dorne.

*  Thanks to The Costumer's Guide to Movie Costumes for the heads up on these sneak peeks of Mia Wasikowska in Through the Looking Glass.


  1. Thank you for posting the link to the Colonial Williamsburg symposium. I have been jealously reading about the fabulous time other costumers have had at previous events. I hope to go to this one, and my BFF may be coming too. Exciting, my first time in Virginia!
