Favorite Movie to watch for killer Garb?
« on: June 03, 2010, 11:28:33 AM »
I was just reading the Robin Hood thread and this popped to mind. What movies do you guys like to watch and drool over the costuming?

I must say that my favorite is Dangerous Beauty and Marie Antoinette

I like watching The Duchess and drooling over her dresses and coats.  And A Knights Tale.  Granted those are more fun looking, I love them.
May the stars always shine upon you and yours.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Dangerous Beauty , both Elizabeths, Pirates of Carribean 2 and 3 for pirate garb, Cutt Thoat Island, Three Musketeers (Disney version) and Casanova, Man in the Iron Mask. I like some aspects of Knights Tale as well but they are a little more funky, favorite is Chaucer's coat!

Pirates of Carribean 2 and 3 for pirate garb,

I so agree.  I'm tempted to make a version of what Keira wore when she was the head of the pirates.

May the stars always shine upon you and yours.

If we broaden the definition of "garb" outside of renaissance stuff- I am particularly stricken and find myself rewatching House of Flying Daggers and Memoirs of a Geisha. I also am currently staring over and over at the dress jacket that the bad guys wore in "I Spy" (the newer one, not the original)- I am going to try to recreate it, with a slight alteration on the sleeves, for my man's groom jacket for the wedding.

Now, for rennie-ish stuff, my favorite costuming to see over and over isn't from a movie, but a TV show-- the Madame de Pompadour episode of Doctor Who. They did an AMAZING job with her and the rest of court- I would KILL to have some of the dresses in that episode!

I love Dangerous Beauty! Not for the "courtesan" outfits but for the venetian gowns at the beginning of the movie.

Vanity Fair is very nice, and The Tudors series makes me drool over the costumes every episode (though Mr. Meyers helps with that too ;D) Also the Elizabeth I two part thing HBO did was great. Most of the movies mentioned above as well, there are many pretty things to look at.

I love Lady Jane Grey and the BBC version of The Other Bolyen Girl.  My mom and I both watch The Seeker, I just laugh though because the though of fighting in a long flowing white gown in the woods and keeping the gown white is beyond us mere mortals.

For fantasy, well, let's be trite, and say Trisha Biggar's clothes for the women in the Star Wars 1-3... Padme's wedding dress, funeral dress, the blue thing she wore on Tatooine...  Other fantasy things are FarScape, and Firefly.
For history, Anne of the Thousand Days, both Elizabeths, and there's one I cannot bring the title to mind.  It starred Robert Downey Jr. as a physician to the court of Charles II...  PBS' version of Cyrano De Bergerac.
