Aereon

Aereon’s dress is described in the ‘Riddick insider’ as being made from ‘crushed Swarowsky (not *my* typo – sic!) crystal’.I will prove in this costume study that this description is wrong as it can be. First, as you can perfectly see here, we have at least two layers in the costume: First, an underdress, A-shaped, […]

Crematoria Various

Interesting enough, the prisoners of Crematoria – save Riddick and Kyra – all seem to wear the same basic clothes:A grayish suit with orange stripes. The shirt of said suit is front-closing, the front opening being bordered with said stripes. Additionally, there are Cyrillic letters printed to the right front of the shirts. The shirts […]

Riddick

General costume Hah! I searched long for an excuse to analyze such a ‘simple’ costume… until I took a closer look and found that it’s not exactly *that* simple at all. Let me tell you why… Alright. Close your eyes after reading the following question and try to come up with an image in your […]

Dame Vaako

LightI have no idea if this is one or two dresses, but it’s shown with different accessories in the movie. First, it’s worn with a ‘smaller’ necklace and a belt… and then it’s worn with a wider necklace, without the belt. The seams seem to be pretty much in the same places on those both […]

Helion Various

Various Helion Prime costumesLajjun and Ziza; Lajjun’s bathrobe and Ziza’s nightgown: The bathrobe seems to be made from doubled, gold stripe woven organza. Note the enormous stuffed collar on this one. Lajjun is wearing another sleeveless shirt under this robe. Ziza’s nightgown is made from a patterned cotton, I guess; and as you can see […]

Shirah

For my life I couldn’t find further pictures of Kristin Lehman from that movie other than I could screenshot from the Director’s cut (which are shown below) – well, they have to be enough for a rough costume analysis…In my opinion, which, of course, can be wrong from the very few pictures I got of […]

1492 – Conquest of Paradise

Now – from the title of the movie as well as from the time aspect of the story, this page shouldn’t be here. However – from the *costumes* this page is supposed to be here as well – even if I guess that Queen Isabel’s gowns are a bit, uhm, revealing, they still look much […]

Elizabeth

Blue-red dance dress One of the few gowns that are shown early in the movie that still has the ‘Tudor’ sleeves. The pomegranate embroideries on undersleeves and low-necked smock neckline are just gorgeous. Red overcoats Black and white court robe This gown is made of black jacquard silk (see last picture that I have highlighted […]
