Hello there, Frocktalkers! Just a friendly reminder that if you are a CDG member, get your nominating ballot in the mail today – ballots must be in the Guild office by 5PM tomorrow, 12-11-12. You can nominate your own films/TV shows/commercials, and you can nominate the films/TV shows/commercials of others, including non-IA, or even non-US work. The Costume Designers Guild Awards are, in the opinions of many, the most esteemed. These are our peers – people who do what we do – showing their appreciation for outstanding achievement in costume design. In our largely thankless profession, it means a lot to have the appreciation of one’s peers! So get those ballots in, folks, and show your support for all the great work of 2012! Have a great week!

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!
