Starstruck: Period Drama Costume Exhibition

WARNING: Picture heavy posts.

A while ago there was an exhibition in my local museum which featured actual costumes from some of the best known and loved period drama films and TV shows. It was a fabulous experience seeing all the costumes up close and personal. The detail is so fine, way beyond what the camera's can pick up, so I wonder why they do it? The work that would have gone into some of them is astounding.

Here are some of the pictures of my favourite costumes, the movie that they're in and the actor/actress that wears it.
