What an amazing resource for our New York Costumer friends. My friend Lynne, has begun such a collection by starting a very reasonable costume rental business that works with local Lethbridge community theater and independent film groups. So far, we've built period costume pieces, collected vintage hats, accessories, boots and shoes and, even provide the producer with an accurate Wardrobe Bible Book for their archives. Are you interested in beginning a local costume collection? Comb through vintage shops, collectables fairs and second-hand clothing stores to find those exquisite articles. Let me know if you need tips on cleaning or storing; I'd love to showcase your work .... remember: have fun, or it's work...

The Making Of The Crown | Costume Design

Written by

Michele Clapton discusses her work as costume designer on The Crown which earned her a BAFTA.

We spend the day at the incredible Hollywood Costume exhibition currently on display at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles! Adam Savage explores the gallery with his friend and exhibit curator Deborah Nadoolman Landis--the designer of Indiana Jones' iconic costume. They discuss the role of the costume design in cinematic storytelling and the wonderful stories behind some of the 150 costumes on display.

Listen in as costume and makeup designer Kym Barrett shares her creative process fueling the stunning handmade creations showcased in TORUK – The First Flight. We learn that opening night doesn’t signal the end of a designer’s responsibilities, as Barrett and the rest of the cast and crew continuously push themselves to search out improvements that can bring each character one step closer to perfection.
