Costume in the movies
I guess this is where a lot of people got into first contact with costumes: a movie.
The costumes shown in such a movie might be more or less accurate… but basically, they are – for some people – the chance to fall in love with the period with which the movie is dealing.
As *some* really have some great costumes to offer, I thought it could not hurt to have an online gallery for them.
I will add more movies over time; but currently I can only offer those. Most of them deal with Elizabethan costumes, of them ‘Elizabeth R’ from 1971 being the costume-wise most historically accurate.
‘Asterix: Mission Cleopatra’ is a pure fantasy movie, but as I like the costumes a lot – particularly one of them – I have listed it here as well.
