Oh no! I forgot to post this with the other movie costumes! The Fountain (2006)
The movie was confusing but this costume made up for it.
The photo of Rachel Weisz on the cellphone while trying to be laced into her costume kills me! Sadly I’ve been in the dressers position many times now.
I learnt two things about my university library on Friday.
1) They do not dust.
2) Random antique books are everywhere and the librarians hide them for fun. I know because I casually mentioned finding one when I was checking out and she told me.
I was looking for a french costume book in the back of our University library and I ended up banging my knee on this ridiculously oversized book about Poiret. I bent down to *quietly* voice my frustrations and shove the book back on the shelf so another unfortunate person wouldn’t leave the library with a book sized bruise.
Imagine my surprise when I couldn’t because an extremely dusty (as in I can’t read you so I need to wipe the spine off dusty) copy of Dante’s The Vision of Hell from 1883 was behind it. I’m not one for Dante but I have to admit the engravings were quite lovely!
I never found my costume book either.
Sorry for the bad picture it’s from my phone. I liked the quote.
My favorite costume movie is Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)
My favorite millinery lecturer is also the man responsible for all of the headdresses in this movie.
One of my lecturers is also partially responsible for that blue dress in photo 3.
