Taking place in San Jose from March 18 through 20, 2016, this new convention celebrates geekitude in many forms, including our own little brand of poking fun at historical costume movies. At least for a one-hour presentation, heh.
If you’re in town, we’d love to see you — our panel is currently scheduled for Saturday, March 19, 2016, at 2:00pm (though check the schedule at the door for any changes). Look for:
The Good, Bad, & Ugly of Historical Costume in Movies & TV
Movies & TV can be the first place we fall in love with historical costume — Scarlett O’Hara’s sweeping ball gowns, Elizabeth Bennet’s proper white dresses, Queen Elizabeth’s fabulous ruffs! The big (and little) screen can transport us back in time, when the costumes are done right. Alas, the costumes are just as often done wrong. That’s why the Frock Flicks blog and podcast was born, and the creators will share why you shouldn’t use costume dramas as documentation for historically accurate cosplay (but we still love watching these films anyway!).
