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! **

Frocktalk reader Sally W. from SF pointed this site out to me, and I must say – it’s fantastic!!  Threadbanger is a site for crafty people.  There are all kinds of Do-It-Yourself projects on the site, ranging from guerilla knitting, to making laptop cases, to making Steampunk shirts, to making curtains, even knit-your-own-viking-mask-and-helmet.  This is not a site for the beginner or first-time crafter, however.  The projects are sometimes complicated, but man they are cool.  This is like, riotgrrl crafting.  Underground, subversive, cool and funny crafting.  Art.  What an awesome site.  Hats off to you, Threadbanger!!
