Master of her craft

Fairy tales are constantly being reinterpreted on the big screen and costumes are an important part of conveying that other worldliness. That’s why I’ll watch the movies even though I’ve heard the story a million times before. With  Mirror Mirror I think the creators were trying to update the fairy tale with a few jokes and modern language.  As much as I love Julia Roberts and Lily Collins, the jokes didn’t quit work for me. The costumes on the other hand were pure perfection. The sheer size of some of the dresses, the colours, the craftsmanship, I’m in awe! Too bad Eiko Ishioka , the film’s costume designer didn’t get an Oscar for her excellent work, she definitely earned it in my book.
I think I’ll watch more films that the late designer worked on and explore this tumblr dedicated to her work.
