Celebrate the imagination, passion, and attention to detail invested in each Disney costume within this gorgeous coffee table book! The elegant and adventurous array of dresses, uniforms, and other attire is a feast for the eyes and a fascinating examination of pure craft and of the brilliant, creative minds behind it. The collection begins with a summation of the costumes created for Disney animation, early live action, and television, along with show wardrobes sported at the Disney Parks by Audio-Animatronics figures and Cast Members. The next section details a timeless case study: Cinderella’s ball gown. A diverse group of designers has been called upon over the years to address and improvise the creative and practical needs each time the fairy tale Cinderella has been reimagined. Each project has brought with it inherent cultural challenges when bringing a familiar and beloved tale to life again and again, and all have yielded stunning and distinct results. At last, the full galleries (organized by the character archetypes of heroes and villains, and those complex, always interesting, “spaces between”) showcase costumes across more than thirty Disney films. At each turn, this volume offers a one-of-a-kind backstage view of remarkable works of art, and it inspires a true appreciation for the highly skilled and talented costumers who created them.

Beautiful pictures, but missing something… I just received this in the mail and am slightly disappointed at the presentation of this. Meant to be a companion to the D23 2019 exhibit (which I did not have a chance to attend), the book opens with a brief summary of costumes as used in the Disney company, then breaks into chapters to somewhat organize the costumes into sections. Puzzlingly, the table of contents is placed after a chapter of the book and feels a bit like an afterthought, with the various costumes not detailed by…

A fun coffee table book, but that’s about it. Was really excited for this book and was really looking forward to what was going to be included. But after paging through it, it felt lacking. The pictures are very nice and it is incredible to see the older costumes featured here. Unfortunately there are a number of choices in here that in my opinion should not have made the cut. These being either boring outfits, such as Ben Gates from national treasure, to the big three from Oz The Great And Powerful which have nothing special going…
