Really cool short video on one of my idols of design, Irene Corey:
Great interview with a costume designer:
I have a "thing" for Theatrical Jewelry. It is more magical than fine jewelry, because it is made from glass, and pot metal and dreams, and then looks more glittery than "real" jewelry from the stage.
It is so nice to see a gorgeous vintage textile being fussed over in a way it deserves to be handled.
REVIVIR UN VESTIDO DEL SIGLO XVIII
Os mostramos el proceso de fotografía de un magnifico vestido de corte del siglo XVIII: desde la reserva hasta el plató donde... una vez montado sobre el maniquí luce en todo su esplendor.
A partir de ahora podéis ver las fotos con todos sus detalles y la información de la pieza en la base de imágenes IMATEX (imatex.cdmt.cat) con el núm. de registro 11682.
Really interesting details about the early Klan outfits (very different than 20th Century versions, and how in their day they were used to recruit the young, get press, seem trendy, and terrorize the community, while stealing ideas from Broadway costumes and Mardi Gras of the 19th Century.
Another video on the history of dress in America
I love this one, and have seen it on c span multiple times. It shows the "how" of c.1900 commercial garment making tools and puts it in contect as well. Lots to see in a short bit.
Just found a stash of C Span videos of use!
Another great way to do an instant magic costume change!
Nifty video on costume designs for The King and I
Ooo, they put out a book too...
