Not a lot to say, other than what has been said. It is the end of the middle?
There are not many new costumes, this is where we get to the part of the show where the clothes become the same old thing. Lots and lots of repeats. Oh there is Frank in the same old suit. Is Claire wearing that bodice AGAIN?? I am very much looking forward to the criticisms about how boring the costumes have become because no one ever changes!
Wrapping up here. I leave Scotland on Sunday. Take a two week vacation and then get on with designing TWO.
Of course I have been designing it for a year in my head, but we are currently in process, making 1000 costumes for all the extras (need to write an extras post!) Still have to design all of the principal costumes, with no scripts! That’s a first.
What will happen on the blog over the hiatus. Many of you have contributed to a list of things you want to talk about, and I will work my way through those requests. I will also report on various aspects of how things work and what we have done, that there wasn’t time for during shooting. Definitely a book club, and maybe doing some costume classes. Those were a lot of fun on Twitter.
And I have to say, scrolling through the blog, there is a LOT to review here. Don’t stop at the front page go back to the beginning. Interesting to look at things in retrospect.
And the forum is really taking off. Come on in and join some interesting discussions. Doesn’t have to be limited to costumes on the show.
So, let me get my belongings packed up, the puppy off to boarding school, and to the airport at the crack of dawn. Who knows, I may find something interesting to write about at the airport!
