Weekly Website Wednesday: Recycled Movie Costumes

This weeks website is all about movie magic… that gets reused a lot.

recycled movie costumes link picture Recycled Movie Costumes is an archive of all the times that certain costumes have been reused in different productions.

If you think you’ve seen a costume used before in a different movie, then you probably have!

It’s actually pretty amazing that they’ve been using some of these costumes over and over again for decades, some even from pretty much the dawn of cinema. I guess that’s just testament to how well these costumes were constructed.
