Stardust (2007) short review


I really enjoyed this adaptation of a Neil Gaiman comic, as the young hero leaves his classic English rural town sometime in the 1870s-80s to enter a fantasy world alongside his own. The bustle era “real world” costumes are quite nice, except for lots of hair wore down. The fantasy costumes are very well done.

    Hi! Stardust is actually a novel/book, not a comic book. The adaptation is actually quite good, adding some extra characters/scenes tat only make it better. And I agree with the costumes/sets being really nice.

    My 13 year old son has already put in a request for me to make him a Tristan Thorne costume (post Captain Shakespeare makeover)… ” in about four years”, he says. I think he has a good eye. Or, if I continue his training properly, he’ll be able to make it himself!
