Description

Ever watch a historical movie and thought "what the heck are they wearing?" We've studied historical clothing, and we love to pick apart Hollywood's idea of period costume. But it's not just about history, it's also about symbolism, style, and more. Grab a cocktail and join us to bitch about crazy costume movies and TV series, fabulous historical costumes, and what it all means.

Room for Improvement

The slogan for this podcast implies that it really gets into the nitty-gritty of movie costumes and historical accuracy, but in the episodes I’ve listened to, the costume discussion is very limited. The group seems to prefer discussing the films' themes and actors, but I would rather hear what they have to say about costuming—I can get film reviews from so many other places. It also irks me that the podcasters seem afraid to appear too educated. When they do discuss history, they usually get some details wrong, like dates and names, and the show's style is more “hang out with wine and listen to girlfriends ramble” than informative. I don't see why they can't be casual and fun and also get their research in order. I think the speakers are knowledgeable, but they don't seem to have an easy time sharing what they know. I was disappointed.

So Much Potential, So Little Content

Nothing but three women pushing the limits of vocal fry, admitting they don’t know the period they’re reviewing (1920’s) can’t remember the names of characters on a series they’ve been watching for 5 years (Downtown Abbey), insulting the listeners with unedited blather; i.e. “I don’t even remember when World War II started.. giggle, snort,”. Very few comments about costumes, mostly complaining that they couldn’t see enough or raving about how bad Mary looked in neutral colors. I quit reading their blog for the same reason. They have some expertise, but seem to prefer gushing over nudity.

Mean ladies

Why anyone would listen to these dolts is beyond me. They are horrid.
