And last, but not least…

So this is where I out myself as Alexandra’s sister. Her really, really, super proud big sister.


You should watch the series, because it’s technically historical, but I’ll be honest, the costuming isn’t the focus. That said, everything else is, well, outstanding. Each episode is only about 5 minutes long, but the cinematography is gorgeous and, well, THAT’S MY SISTER, EVERYONE.

So, from all of us at Frock Flicks, good luck to Red Bird at the Emmys on Sunday night!

    Who’s she again?…No, kidding.

    Ps: Great hairpin shortage not over, eh? Maybe your sis can tell us how that goes from the inside?

      Well, you know how it goes… A gal doesn’t have much time to do her hair when she’s out in the Kansas countryside hunting down child murderers.

        I see… Secret, eh?

        I just wanted to know if there was an official delivery of your allocated hairpins quota. All numbered, of course, and in a sealed box which has to be opened by the HRA (Hairpin Regulation Agency) representative, while the set hairdresser recite the oath:

        “I, Betty Mc Comb, hairdresser on *insert film/series name here*, swear to uphold the HRA policies and will NOT use more hairpins than the sanctioned amount of three pins per person.
        Tresses will drop, chignons will slide and bouffant will deflate, but I will stay true to the HRA and refuse all and any non government sanctioned hairpins.
        I am aware that failure to do so, or to NOT return the hairpins in toto to the HRA after shooting, will result in hefty fines to be calculated in line of the HRA regulation”

        Darn! Those HRA guys are really sneaky!
