Falling Down a Rabbit Hole

February 28, 2024

When you watch a costume drama, do you find yourself delving into the real story later? Well, I certainly do. I have been watching the second season of FEUD, entitled Capote vs. the Swans. It delves into the details of his famous Black and White Ball, and I found myself falling down a rabbit hole.

I started looking at photos of the actual ball and came across a costume that looked familiar. I knew it was from My Fair Lady. But when I watched the movie…I couldn’t find it! Eventually I found it in the stage play, in a photo I probably saw once ten years ago. So…my life is going great. 

We’ve also got an amazing blue floral gown that has been seen in both Jeeves & Wooster and Poirot!  I don’t have as much information on this particular dress, but if anyone does, please leave a comment and let me know.  The same goes for any costume on this site – if you have more information, photos, or research of any kind, I’d love to get it up and on the site.

Ya’ll are awesome.  Keep sending and uploading your wonderful submissions! I see them, I am working on them – I promise! I try to give equal opportunity to everyone, as much as possible.

About The AUthor

Katie is the creator of Recycled Movie Costumes, where she’s constantly haunted by the ghosts of costumes past. One day, she had an epiphany: if she had to suffer through these recycled costumes, then so should everyone else! And thus, Recycled Movie Costumes was born.

Contrary to popular belief, Katie does not have a photographic memory, nor does she work in the costume industry. She’s just a girl whose life has slowly spiraled out of control after watching too many costume dramas on Masterpiece Theatre.
