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! **

Updates and News!


Hello Frocktalkers!!!  So much has been happening – it has been truly crazy!  The TEDx Pacific Palisades was amazing, and I can’t wait to share the talk I did with you.  I will post a link to the video as soon as it is posted. It was a very nerve-wracking experience, as I am not a natural public speaker… but I did not barf, and I did not cry.  I consider that a victory!

Also in Frocktalk news, I am working on expanding Frocktalk a bit to provide you with more of the content you seek.  Keep your browser pointed here for more information about a very exciting new Frocktalk correspondent.  I am thrilled about this, and I think you will be, too!

Finally, I have taken a new job, and it is in TELEVISION.  I know, wacky, right?  Never say never!  It’s a great group of people, and I am excited to be doing something new and exciting.  The possibilities for this show are endless, so it is creatively invigorating, to say the least.  I will need to seek permission in order to tell you what it is or to give you updates or behind-the-scenes on the project, so stand by!

Have a great week, everyone – and if you’re in the US, have a fab Independence Day!  If you’re in Canada, Happy Canada Day!
