It's the season ticket

My husband took me to the "Marvel Exhibition" at the Art Gallery and it is fantastic.  All those costumes, up close, but still not one costume designer was named.  Some of the set designers got a mention but not one costume designer.  And Oh those costumes!

I rushed back out to the entrance and changed my ticket to a season one, because I know I have to go back.  Only draw back is the noise.  There are so many school groups coming through.  One of the attendants told me they sold 4,000 tickets last Sunday.  I'm not going on a weekend.  I will have to try and get there early or late and miss all the kids.  And it isn't just kids.   We went in the middle of the week and there were lots of young people there , in fact more under 35's than I've seen in one place for a while. There are the 'art gallery apps' you can log onto while there but so many people were trying to access them I didn't have a look in.   I can see why schools are embracing this exhibition the resources for schools that are available for teachers are wonderful.

There is just so much depth to this exhibition.  It works on multiple levels, design right through all the steps to the finished movies.  All the stages of the process are on display.  This is going to turn into a serious study I can see.  Inspiration, inspiration, inspiration.

It should be possible to find out who it was. They may even have written about it somewhere...

I feel that Costume designers, with a few exception, don’t get enough credit for the work they do. Fashion Designers are well know even books written about them. Not the case for Costume Design. There is an opening there.
