Costume Commentary

  1. The dress seems to be an even older one. I think, this might be it on the title character (actress: Tina Romero) of British-Mexican horror feature film “Alucarda” (loosely based on Le Fanu’s Carmilla) shot in 1977. Costumes probably rented, not done especially for the movie – judging by the fit. The close-up with the dagger shows a dotted fabric. Can’t remember if that corresponds with the dress in “The woman in black”? Anyway, at least the bishop’s-sleeves would have to have been altered for the following productions as well as details on the bodice. What do you think?

  2. The latter film is actually called “The Woman in black” after a novel by Susan Hill, not after Wilkie Collin’s “Woman in white”
