These are places I go regularly for either inspiration or information.
Avail Couture: Custom wedding dresses in the Chicago area. My cousin owns this business. Costumer’s Guide to Movie Costumes: Want information on a specific costume? Check here first! Maggie does a great job keeping on top of new offerings in the world of movie costume. LOTR Costume: A LOTR costuming information source. A lot if information in these pages. Prairie Ladies: This page is for the bobbin lace group I’m a part of. It loads somewhat slow at first. The Royal Handmaiden Society: A great source for all things Handmaiden, with information on SW Episodes I, II, and III, galleries and much more. SereniFly Costumes: Firefly and Serenity costuming. Still under construction, but off to a good start.
Fabric, Trims and what-not:
Snow Goose: Bobbin lacing supplies. I got my first roller pillow from them years ago. Van Sciver Bobbin Lace: Holly is terrific! She’ll help you find the right weight thread or the right pins and is quick to ship.
Pages perhaps of interest. A bit of history, etc.
Galactica Station: For the re-imagines Battlestar. Lots of episode information, screen caps, etc. Good for the obsessive costumer who wants detail. Medieval History: Lots of links. Some work, many don’t, but a wealth of information in what does work.
