Flashback to Coraline Goodness

You know I loved the movie Coraline when it came out. The 3-D version was lovely, still can't forget the fireflies. I even admired the plastic figurines that were available. However, what I loved the most about the film is that it was stop motion and therefore, every little prop or costume was real and hand made. Here is a great interview with Coraline's costume designer, Deborah Cook from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) Museum's blog. Enjoy!

Just look at those little clothes AND the shoes! I could seriously squeal right now.

Thanks for the link to the interview -- it was fascinating! (I tried three times to leave a comment there, too, but seem to have failed.)

The movie is marvelous, but I had no idea how much work went into the costumes, or even that they were essentially created like miniature clothes.
