What Are Recycled Movie Costumes?

Have you ever watched a movie or a television show and seen a character walk by in a gown that you just know you've seen before? No, chances are you aren't just imagining it - there are literally hundreds of great examples of costumes that have been reused and recycled for use in other films. So if you've seen a recycled costume before that you don't see in our galleries, send it in!
