Quiz: Recycled Movie Costumes

12

We all know that historical costume movies and TV series often reuse costumes between shows and films. A gown made for one 18th-century frock flick goes into the stock at Angels or Western Costume and will get rented out for another 18th-century frock flick a few years later. Sometimes, the outfit will get a little re-trimming or a new collar or such. It just makes sense to recycle movie costumes when you have dozens or hundreds of main characters and extras to dress for a production.

Can you identify where some of these frocks have previously been flicked? Test your memory!

 

Thanks to Recycled Movie Costumes as a reference for this quiz! (Now don’t go using it to cheat, OK?)

    Oh, it’s not loading for me! :( Just a big blank space… Duh. I’m looking forward to it, though, as reused costumes in period dramas are one of my fave topics.
