welcome to my movie costume research. 

I don't have many costumes to research that haven't been done already, but I thought that some of the costumes on my wishlist needed a little bit better exposure on the web.  So, look around, find what you need, and happy costuming!
September 10, 2007 - Alright, after deep soul-searching, (ok, not so deep!) I decided to take most of this site off the web.  I know, I'm mean.  Maggie really has a nice site and she's got it all covered and does a way better job than me.  :)  But, I will be using this site to put up really random costumes that no one else seems to know about.  I'll keep up the costume pics here for another month or so, then they'll be gone.  Thanks for the support.
One thing I did add was some screencaps for Ellie Arroway's dress in Contact.  I did a huge search on the internet for pics of this dress and found zip! 
Go check out Serenifly Costumes, Mia's Costume Diaries, and clicky on the links on the right!
February 7, 2007 - Ok, so it's not really done, but the new Serenifly Costumes is up and running.  I'm gradually getting it done as I have time.  Right now, I've taken down all I had up on this particular site and it will be (or is already) added to the new one.  Questions?  email me
January 24, 2006 - I've decided to move the Firefly/Serenity section to it's own URL.  I'll announce it here when it's close to being completed.  So, that's why you haven't seen much activity here.  I will leave what I had started up here, but it will be gone when I do the official announcement. 
January 3, 2006 - I'm still working on Firefly/Serenity.  I did a ton today that isn't showing on the site yet, but I'll give you a feel with Inara's red/gold.
January 2, 2006 - I'm working on my Firefly/Serenity pages.  I hope to get the Serenity Propstore pics up (as links) by tonight.
December 31, 2006 - I got some images done on my Firefly/Serenity pages before leaving for vacation, but Tripod was acting funny, so now they're up and working!
November 19, 2006 - Got the promo images done for Zoe, Jayne, Wash, Kaylee, Inara, Book, Simon, and River on my Firefly/Serenity pages.  I'm going to start working on the costume specific pages pretty soon.  Thanksgiving might put a wrench in those plans, though.  I also archived some was looking a little cluttered.
November 16, 2006 - I've got Mal's promo images up for my Firefly/Serenity pages.  Will start working on others.
November 16, 2006 - I'm really close to putting up more pictures for Firefly/Serenity.  Really really close.
November 10, 2006 - I finally got some pictures up for Firefly/Serenity.  Right now, they've been added to the cast part.  They're going to be moving slowly, but I'll get a little done at a time.

Movies of which I have limited costume research:


All pictures shown here are either screen captures I took myself or pictures I found randomly on the internet.  If you see one of your pictures and do not wish me to display it, please contact me and I will remove it or give you full credit.

This is just a fan site. I love movie costumes. I don't mean any disrespect or infringement.
