The last month has been straight blood, sweat, and tears for these costumes, but the first 2 are complete. These were commissioned for the theatre group of a children’s museum. I’m still finishing up Glinda, but she’s  not due for another two weeks. 

Everything was handmade by myself, except the Lion prosthetic, which was purchased from FX Warehouse.


“This is the first water sign of the zodiac and the Cancer woman is ruled by the Moon, endowing her with awesome intuition and imagination. She is deeply intuitive, and if she says she doesn’t feel right about someone, it pays to take notice. She won’t know the reason, but she will probably be proved right sooner or later. Similarly, her unerring instinct will tell her at once if someone is to be trusted. This is not about being judgmental - it’s about instincts and feelings”. (x)

Wherein Social Media Specialist Marya E. Gates (aka @oldfilmsflicker​) discusses her indifference to a canonical classic and why you should join us on April 8th at 8pm ET/5pm PT for a live tweet of THE WIZARD OF OZ (’39) and convert her.

This month on TCM we are celebrating silver screen legend Judy Garland. This Friday we will be showing arguably her most iconic film: The Wizard of Oz.

Released in 1939 - a year that is often considered one of the single greatest years in film history - WOZ has worked its way into the hearts of millions. Based on the novel by L. Frank Baum, there are many aspects of the film that are embedded in the American culture consciousness - from the ruby red slippers, to iconic lines like, “there’s no place like home,” “I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!,” to the Wicked Witch of the West, to Garland’s masterful rendition of Over the Rainbow

So why don’t I share in the nostalgia? I love Judy Garland (give me weepies like The Clock and A Star Is Born any day!), I love musicals, and I love Technicolor.

But the film has yet to win me over. 

Every few years I watch it - usually with a group of people (in person or online) - in an attempt to “get it.” But when it’s over I still don’t love it. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it. And I never feel the urge to revisit for enjoyment purposes, but rather to try to understand why it’s so beloved. 

With this is mind, I will be joining @tcmparty tomorrow night at 8pm ET/5pm PT as they live tweet, attempting to find the magic. For their live tweets, follow @TCM_Party. Follow me at @tcm and @oldfilmsflicker and feel free to send me your thoughts during moments you love so I can try to love them too!
