Posting a second time, since the initial posts appear to be missing in new threads.

I’m throwing this out there for anyone. Who are your favorite current (or past) costume designers? Or good examples of their work? With learning more and more about costume design, I find myself really looking at how the costumes add, or detract, from the work.

I really like what Lyn Paolo is doing on Scandal. Those costumes (especially for the female characters) really speak to who those characters are and how they’ve changed over the years.

I also love how Elphaba’s costume (and make up) change between the first and second act to reflect the internal changes of the character.

Other examples?
