P: Pleasing Costume Design

A2Z-2013-BADGE-001Small_zps669396f9I’m super into period dramas, like Pride and Prejudice and pretty much anything of that sort. There are a variety of reasons for this, but one of the major ones? The costumes. If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I love me some dresses. So today’s post is pretty much going to be pictures of dresses.

What sorts of things do you tend to notice about the movies you like?

  1. The things I probably notice most about a movie are to do with dialog, plot, and acting–the obvious things. But costume is one of those details that many times we/I gloss over and not think twice about, but done badly can really ruin a movie. And done well (as in the examples you cite) can make a movie. You’d think as visual a medium as movies are we/I would pay more attention to things like this. I guess it’s one of those things that if it’s being done well, you don’t notice it. 🙂

  2. The costumes and setting are vital for a great movie. I love Shawshank Redemption and the setting and costumes, albeit prison clothes, set a great scene and add to the atmosphere. Attention to detail wins the day 🙂
