Giggle...  I do lots of those.  Age has nothing to do with it.  More to do with my never having learned to touch type...

Himself burned it to DVD, and the Confidential episode to go with it, so I can have LOTS of pix to squee over!

A movie no one has mentioned yet is Stage Beauty, which is a fantastic movie with some beautiful restoration costumes.

I also love the costumes found in Marie Antoinette, The Duchess, The Tudors, Casanova, Elizabeth, Young Victoria, and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and Penelope for a bit more modern costumes.

I'm contemplating making one of the costumes from "FLESH & BLOOD", it's based in the plague years and stars Rutger Hauer and Jennifer Jason Leigh.  Costuming tends to be from lower to middle class with some nobility thrown in for good measure.

Two that haven't been mentioned are "The Princess Bride" and "Ladyhawke." Love the movies, and the costumes weren't bad either.  ;)

Another beautiful movie for killer garb is Stealing Heaven.  I totally forgot about that movie until I was playing a podcast a couple of weeks ago.

I love the costumes in Prince of Persia (though other parts of the film are sorely lacking). And there's some really nice costuming in Prince Caspian. I think my other favorites have all been mentioned.
