marycatharineanne asked: Can we purchase any of the recycled movie costumes?


Unfortunately I do not have any of the posted costumes personally available for purchase. 

If you want to purchase costumes that have been used in film and television, I can suggest several of the following resources:

It’s a Wrap!

Premiere Props



Ebay is also a good resource. Occasionally props and costumes from various productions will show up there.

If you want to rent a costume that you have seen in a movie or on television, you will have to find out what costume company supplied costumes for a production, which you can usually determine via the show’s IMDb page.  Some of the bigger costume houses that you could contact about rentals are:

Angels The largest costume house in the world. They did work on Marie Antoinette, The Young Victoria and even Game of Thrones.

Cosprop has outstanding costumes. They outfit shows such as Downton Abbey and Mr.Selfridge

Tirelli Costumi has some absolutely gorgeous costumes from a wide array of films, including Cold Mountain and Jane Eyre.

Western Costume Company, which has been outfitting numerous movies in Hollywood for years typically has a big sale about once a year to clean out their inventory. Occasionally you can find some wonderful things there.  You can also, of course, rent many of their costumes as well.

Lastly, Debbie Reynolds amassed an enormous collection of movie costumes over the years, which she has had to sell. The third part of the auction, through Profiles in History, is set to happen in May 2014.  If you visit the site, you can sign up to be notified when the auction catalog becomes available.

It’s easy to feel uncared for when people aren’t able to communicate and connect with you in the way you need. And it’s so hard not to internalize that silence as a reflection on your worth. But the truth is that the way other people operate is not about you. Most people are so caught up in their own responsibilities, struggles, and anxiety that the thought of asking someone else how they’re doing doesn’t even cross their mind. They aren’t inherently bad or uncaring — they’re just busy and self-focused. And that’s okay. It’s not evidence of some fundamental failing on your part. It doesn’t make you unloveable or invisible. It just means that those people aren’t very good at looking beyond their own world. But the fact that you are — that despite the darkness you feel, you have the ability to share your love and light with others — is a strength. Your work isn’t to change who you are; it’s to find people who are able to give you the connection you need. Because despite what you feel, you are not too much. You are not too sensitive or too needy. You are thoughtful and empathetic. You are compassionate and kind. And with or without anyone’s acknowledgment or affection, you are enough.
