about the costumier Update

Poetry in costume is live!

At long last, Poetry in Costume is live!

Featuring an incredible, timeless logo designed by Paisley Randell, Poetry in Costume aims to analyse and examine the narrative of costume in Star Wars and beyond. Costume – whether designed for live action or interpreted for animation or comics – is always about so much more than clothes. Costume is about communicating a story, and I hope to share insight into character, design and the costume industry.

Make sure to follow Poetry in Costume on social media: TumblrTwitter and on Instagram, and keep your eyes peeled for Celebration-related giveaways!


A professional costumier working in the UK film industry since 2010, I spend my working day helping to create costumes for screen and my free time over-analysing costume on screen. This blog is a collection of my meta and analysis. By marrying historical, pop cultural and professional knowledge I hope to share the nuance and narrative importance of costume. All thoughts are subjective and entirely my own.
