Films are my passion and greatest escape. They take me away to a place that feels magical and makes me feel truly happy inside.

"Without obsession, life is nothing." - John Waters



    I am totally THAT person who gets obsessed with old tv shows that literally no one else cares about and I have to sit here by myself feeling nostalgic and shit

    I feel this so much.

    Iconic Film Costumes

    Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Costumes by Adrian

    The Ruby Slippers were regular shoes covered with red satin and lined with cream colored kid leather. There are 2300 sequins per shoe. The leather bow has 46 rhinestones, 42 bugle beads, 3 costume jewels, and there was red felt applied to the soles of the shoes to muffle the sounds of footsteps. 

    Her jumper was royal blue and white gingham. The top was tinted a light pink as white didn’t photograph properly underneath the bright technicolor lights. Beneath it, she wore a special corset de-emphasizing her bust and giving her a younger silhouette.

    #Marilyn Monroe 

    It was easy to be intimidated by Marilyn, and I was. She was so goddamned beautiful. Luscious. Sweet. But the intimidation disappeared fast because she was so committed and so ready to get better. She listened like no one else, and she worked to the point of a migraine, and I would tell her to lighten up, go easy on yourself, but she couldn’t: She wanted to be taken seriously; she wanted to get it right. I bitch about my upbringing, and my sad mother and sad aunts and no men around and nothing but dead ends all around, but I had love and food and the space and the silence to dream. Marilyn didn’t have that. She told me once that she just wanted her own bedroom, her own bed, and a door she could close. And grass. Grass to run in. Trees to hug and flowers to pick. This was a girl who had nothing but the great gem that she was, and everyone got to hold and fondle that gem, and then put it back when they were done with it. She was happiest—for a time—when she married Arthur [Miller], and there was a country house and trees and fruit and flowers—and silence and doors.

    -Maureen Stapleton in an interview with James Grissom, 1991 [x]
