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!

It is with very heavy heart that I tell you the news of costume designer Michael Dennison’s passing. I was having a hard time bringing myself to share this news because doing so would make it real, and none of us want this kind of news to be real. Our costume community has lost a true gem – a man who, at the age of only 58, had garnered the respect of his peers and the admiration of audiences the world over for his extraordinary work. He will be greatly missed. Here are some articles from around the web about his life, and his passing. RIP, Michael Dennison.
Here’s a lovely obit from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
