Welcome to FrockTalk, the web’s only costume-based movie review site. The goal of Frocktalk is to shed light on the magnificent artistry of costume design in motion pictures. Reviews on this site are written by working costume designers in the entertainment industry – people who know, better than anyone, what it takes to make it all happen. The focus of FrockTalk is not to comment on the big flashy costume dramas, but to call attention to the seemingly ordinary costume design work in film that silently and persuasively moves the audience toward understanding the characters. Costume design for motion pictures is an art form that deserves more recognition than it usually gets. Fancy, pretty costumes do not always equal effective, appropriate costumes. The art of the costume is in letting the audience know who the character is, before the actor even has a chance to open his mouth. Read on, and enjoy. ** CAUTION: ALL REVIEWS CONTAIN SPOILERS! **

Janome is in the ER

Yes, in a particularly poorly-timed twist of fate, the Janome (aka Sewing Machine #2) keeled over on me today.  Poorly-timed, because I have a mountain of sewing to do on a deadline.  I went to the Sewing Arts Center (aka the sewing machine ER), but they were closed.  CLOSED! It’s like King Drew all over again.

I am the proud new owner of a Janome Magnolia machine, purchased for $299 at F & S Fabrics.  It purrs like a kitten, and I am really happy with it so far.  The old Janome will go to the hospital tomorrow, but right now she is in the triage unit of my car’s trunk.

Thank you in advance for the flowers, calls, cards and well-wishes.  She will hopefully make a speedy recovery.  I will keep you posted.  And thanks, F & S, for being open on Sundays.
