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! **

Hey all – just want to bring your attention to this hilarious Tumblr account.  I don’t know who this is, but he/she is on notice – come write for Frocktalk.com!  Check it out HERE – COSTUMER OF AWESOME.  We’ve been rolling on the floor for a few days here in the department.  It’s good.

In other news, I’ve been live tweeting (to the best of my ability) the East coast feed of SLEEPY HOLLOW.  Follow along if you dare @frocktalk – hope you enjoy the show, Frocktalkers!  More to come!

Tweeting My Face Off!!!

Find me @Frocktalk!

Hey Frocktalkers!!  Just letting you know that I am finally starting to get the hang of this Twitter thing and I have been tweeting my face off!  I am tweeting links to other interesting articles about costume design in film and television, as well as JOB OPENINGS that come across my desk.  If you have a costume-related job opening that you need to fill, send it on over and I will tweet it.  For those of you unfamiliar with the way Twitter works (Mom, I’m talking to you) you need to create a Twitter account in order to follow my tweets.  You don’t have to tweet anything yourself, and no one will steal your identity or track your movements.  In fact, no one has to know who you are!  Stay in touch and I’ll see you in the twittersphere!  @Frocktalk

Follow @Frocktalk on Twitter!!

Frocktalkers, it is certainly a sign of the apocalypse:  I have taken to Twitter.  I have no idea what I’m doing, or even how to use a hashtag, but come watch me flame out and crash on social media in real time!  I will be tweeting pictures of costumes, my handsome dog, and other beautiful objects I see that are somehow related to costumes.  Today’s adventure – a trip to the Sony Plaza lobby, where (who knew?!) they have a huge display of costumes from various movies over the years.  Check it out @Frocktalk, and be very afraid – I have no idea how to work this thing!!!!
