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! **

Fitting Pictures Save Reputations!!!

Fitting pictures: not just for work anymore!!  In the case of John Travolta, fitting pictures from his new project Killing Season may shoot down any chance of Lawsuit #1 from ever seeing the light of day.  Among other things, Lawsuit #1 alleges that Travolta was in Los Angeles on January 16, 2012.  But thanks to some time-and-date-stamped fitting photos from the film, with additional backup witnesses of costume designer Denise Wingate and her crew, the allegation proves to be totally untrue.  Costume department saves the day!  Thanks, Denise, for showing these opportunistic bottom-feeders how beautiful fitting photos can be.  See articles about the fitting photos HERE and HERE. Keep up the good work!
