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! **

Costume Designers Guild Magazine, Winter 2012

Really great issue of the Costume Designers Guild Magazine this winter – you can access it by clicking on the cover of the magazine on the lower left side of the CDG website.  It would be awesome if they sold subscriptions to the general public – I know there are a lot of you out there who would love to have it delivered to your mailbox!  For now, you can view it online through the CDG website:  http://www.costumedesignersguild.com/ Enjoy and have a great week!!
