Cut! Costume And The Cinema

IMG_5379.jpg

Last Thursday, Will and I took a last minute day off to just to enjoy a simple summer day. We drove to our usual favorite spot, Pain D’Avignon Cafe in Hyannis for yummy baked croissants, fruit and cappuccinos. I can spend all day there drinking lattes and having meaningless and ponderous conversations.

After, we set off to Sandwich to attend the costume exhibition: Cut! Costume and the cinema displayed at the Heritage Museum. A whole room filled with costumes from various movies and time periods. Numerous materials such as silks, chiffon, taffeta, lace, fur, tweed, beaded netting and embroidered material graced the dress forms around the room. It was impressive, we examined every garment in the room as if it were a painting on canvas. Our eyes scanned every button, brooch, piece of jewelry, buckle, hat, feather and wig visible to the naked eye. Movies I never even heard of debuted excellent works of craftsmanship in design and silhouette.

Will and I are huge movie buffs so we were completely enamored by the costumes and just how skilled costume designers really are. The costumes are like characters themselves-we forget that they’re apart of the story too and indicative of the period. The whole production of costumes was spectacular and visually stunning.

 

Enjoy the pics!
