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!
Hey there, Frocktalkers! Sorry it’s been such radio silence here. My world has exploded in the past few weeks and I am scrambling to keep up with all of it. There is some great news, though – I’ve been asked to do a TED talk – OMGsonervousIcan’tevenstandit! I will be speaking at TEDx Pacific Palisades on June 29, 2013! Yeah, exciting and crazy! I will be talking about clothing and identity, and how we use the language of clothing in our work as costume designers. Tickets available soon on the website – check it out HERE.
Also , tons of other cool things happening in the costume design world – on June 20, 2013 Costume Designer Sophie de Rakoff will be hosting a panel of costume designers for the Academy. From the Hollywood Reporter:

Frocktalkers, it’s an exciting day! My bags are packed and I’m out the door, headed to London for the big opening of the V & A exhibit. I will be posting updates and pictures on Twitter, so please take a look @Frocktalk – it’s going to be crazy! I can’t wait to share the experience with you. If you have any specific requests for photos, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a DM on Twitter and I will do my best to get them for you! I will also be visiting the Cecil Beaton exhibit and Angel’s costume house! So excited!!! Stay tuned for more details, and please check @Frocktalk on Twitter for updates – I won’t be able to post here on Frocktalk until I return! Have a good week, everyone!

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
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!!!!
Hey there Frocktalkers!! Make sure you follow the CDG Twitter account for live updates on all the costumes at Comic Con! They will be tweeting live from the Masquerade Ball – which is great, because I don’t recall anyone doing that in the past – get your Masquerade costume contest winners while they are steaming hot!
This is Saturday, traditionally the most packed day of the convention. The above photo is from when I tried to board the trolley at Old Town at 9:15 AM. It was like Tokyo rush hour… no one could even get ON the train; it was already full to capacity. In any case, I started my day at 8:30 AM and I am just now getting home at 12:37 AM to post. I have so many pictures, so many good stories, and so many crazy things to tell. I will tell you one story now, and post the others when I get back to LA on Sunday night/Monday. The story I am going to tell you involves Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
