I am a costume designer and every day I see things that are fascinating and inspiring. They are the benefits of my profession.
Things not destined to be seen in the films.
Tools of the trade, research, materials.
Things out of context.
Things I collect and hope to use someday.
Fabrics, prints and articles of clothing.
Trimmings, equipment, workplaces.
There's also my obsession with workwear and a constant delight in being able to guess at a person's occupation or background by their dress. Recreating this, realistically or otherwise is, after all, the job.
Due to work commitments my blog can be sporadic plus there's the added issue of my days off being used up by my very elaborate and time consuming hobby.
