ON MOVIES ~ Dress Up...

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Costumes...

Halloween is approaching here in the U.S. The holiday where all the kiddos dress up in costumes and knock on neighborhood doors in search of candy, risking trickery to your property if they are denied. Now that I think about it, Trick Or Treating is really a lesson in manhandling. It is also interesting how the costumes have changed over the years from purely scary characters to whomever the latest popular icon might be. In the world of cinema, the costumes often make or break the believability of the experience for the viewer. Sometimes they define the character and other times they are successful because they blend things so seamlessly into the background, allowing the actors to shine. Here are a few examples we enjoyed. Share on your blog movies whose costumes set just the right stage, linking back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

Can you believe that Gone With the Wind is the only one of these I've never seen? A classic for the ages, and for some reason I've never seen it. Snippets of it from time to time, but not the entire film.

Great choices!

Of course I was happy to see The Sting there! And GWTW is one of the few movies where I remember specific dresses: the green/white picnic dress, the red slut dress, and, of course, the green velvet dress made from Mother's drapes. Terrific choices! I came up with three more.

This is a fun theme & great one as Halloween is almost here! I love your choice of The Sting, Batman & Star Wars! I don't think I would have picked The Devil Wears Prada but, of course, that's all about the clothes/costumes. I would love me some of the actor's "costumes" in that movie! lol

At first I thought I was going to have some difficulty thinking of movies & then, suddenly, I had too long a list!

Those are all great picks--I would have listed all of them, I went ahead and included star wars--after all the costumes were out of this world! Have a nice monday.
