Description

Ever watch a historical movie and wonder "what the heck are they wearing?" We've studied real 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. Join us in the theater to talk about crazy costume movies and TV series, fabulous historical costumes, and what it all means.

So much fun!

I've been lurking on these ladies' websites for some time, enjoying their historical costuming diaries and no-holds-barred costume flick reviews. Now you can enjoy discussion of the frock flicks' success -- and failure -- beyond the "Ooh, pretty!" of the non-costume-obsessed.

An enjoyable listen

These ladies definitely know their period dress, and overall, the podcast is quite enjoyable for those who are attracted by historical films but maybe don't know the ins and outs of the fabrics and fashions of the times. It made me want to go back and watch the films again to try and catch some of the details they pointed out. And for a film I had already decided to pass up, it renewed my interest enough that I went out and rented it so that I could see for myself what they had been discussing. It would be helpful if they would occasionally explain more often what makes one style of dress different from another rather than simply calling them by their proper names (as most of us won't know the difference between English, French & Italian styles of the times, or a 16th century dress versus one from the 17th century.) The one thing that truly detracts from the experience is the tendency of the three reviewers to talk over each other at times -- making it impossible to know what any of them have just said. Fortunately they only seem to do this a couple of times in each episode.

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.
