Description

Product Description

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.

PRAISE FOR THE ART OF DISNEY COSTUMING

"Even though the detailed coverage delves into films that were not critically or commercially well-received, the focus is on the extraordinary craftsmanship that went into the costumes, which were often the best part of the viewing experience. Disney fans may well appreciate this unusual theme, while readers passionate about costume history and design are probably the best-suited audience."

"Alongside gorgeous photos of the costumes are close-ups that reveal design elements that you never would have noticed on the screen. . . . Beyond the photographic details are insightful comments from the designers too. . . . Every costume in the book possesses that notable spark of the creative process that takes the form of cloth and thread. . . . Another striking thing is the wide array of costumes the authors chose. It runs the gamut from Dorothy''s costume in 1985''s Return to Oz, to the Genie, Aladdin, and Jasmine from this year''s live-action Aladdin. The sampling truly gives a breathtaking look at the field of costume design, especially when it comes to the fantasy worlds in which these characters live."― Brit + Co.

"A pure and nostalgic pleasure to simply browse through, The Art of Disney Costuming: Heroes, Villains, and Spaces Between is impressively informative and . . . would be an especially appropriate and enduringly popular selection for library Memorial Fund acquisitions. Simply stated, The Art of Disney Costuming is unreservedly endorsed and recommended for personal, community, college, and academic library collections."
Reviewer''s Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review

PRAISE FOR THE ART OF DISNEY COSTUMING
"It may be surprising for many that the core subject of this new book is live-action films from the past three decades or so and not the animated classics. Director of the Walt Disney Archives Rebecca Cline explains: ''We wanted to move the story forward here, and bring the current Disney not of the Walt era into the spotlight. It allowed us to really focus on the best in design and craft in the current Disney cinematic canon-and frankly, in the current cinematic canon, period. These are today''s top costuming talents, at the peak of their form.'' Explore the characters, stories, history, and currency of Disney in a whole new way, and with a different and new appreciation."― Nerds and Beyond

He is the author of more than thirty books, a writer-director of award-winning documentary content, and a respected public speaker. A Seattle native, Kurtti worked as a production coordinator on the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival, followed by two years as the assistant to the president of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). For several years, he worked for Walt Disney Imagineering, the theme park design division of The Walt Disney Company, and then for the Corporate Special Projects department of Disney.

I just received this in the mail and am quite 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 chapter.

Within each chapter, the costumes are presented in sections by costume/film, featuring one high quality photo of the overall garment that is accompanied by a paragraph of anecdotes about the costume. Most of the sections containing one garment do have one additional close-up photo of the garment, but only to highlight a detailed piece of work such as the sleeves. Additionally, each section has a blurb about the costume designer''s history or previous work.

Unfortunately, the book falls short with the amount of information given about the actual costume shown. The small blurb about the featured costume skims the surface about the construction and fabrics used for the costume. Instead of providing information about the designer''s history, that space would have been put to better use featuring more detailed photos about the actual research done for each of the garments, in-progress photos, movie stills, or even more photos of the garments. Additionally, most of the book is filled with costumes from post 2000''s Disney films and makes this book even more of a disappointment. If you want to see a more detailed look at some iconic costumes, you''ll have a better chance at that by watching Prop Shop on Disney+.

While I added this lovely title to my Disneyland library simply because it''s cover perked my interest, I am happy I did.

First, the presentation of the project was done with style and flair! This project at least in my mind, is completely worthy of a volume featuring fantasy couture.

From coffee-table sized, replete with beautiful end-papers and fonts, most are accompanied by simply stunning photographs.

Never in a million years would I have believed I would have...in one sitting read a book such as this in two hours! And found it truly a fantastic read...even for a guy!

The most interesting and meaningful insight I have is to convey the many times that I immediately recognized the costumers talents. By material, buttons and snaps alone, on stylized mannequins the actors faces and bodies we''re "seen" as clearly as if they we''re wearing them! Now that is some talented seamstress-try (is that a word?) Like I said...."for a guy"

NOTE: A couple of reviews deducted stars due to the condition of the cover. May I say it is a VERY thick stock used and that fact coupled with the size of the volume and the use of an automated loader makes it difficult to place tightly. If you just remove the cover nad carefully use a paper folder/bone and press the creases to a sharp crease before replacing it on the book you will see that it will lay perfectly and snuggly on top and bottom and rectify the issues...enjoy!

A fine addition.

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 on.

Also watch out, the box my book arrived in was fine. But the book got pretty damaged somewhere before shipping. 👎

This book shows Disney costumes from a variety of Disney movies and tv shows. It is filled with full page photos and pictures of details which you could never see on screen. It is far from comprehensive - that would require many, many volumes to cover. They show various versions of Cinderella''s iconic blue dress from different live action shows and costumes from Hocus Pocus, Prince of Persia, Sorcerer''s Apprentice, others - not just the big films. I hope they make a volume 2. I would love to see more photos of the amazing work Disney designers create for our viewing pleasure.

This book is gorgeous and looks great on my coffee table. It is organized strangely with the prologue coming before the table of contents and countless pages dedicated to index. Regardless, I bought the book to look beautiful on my coffee table and it serves its purpose well. I will note, my book came dirty and just thrown in a box. Like other reviewers, I’m pretty disappointed with the handling of books bought on Amazon but that shouldn’t take a star away from the book itself. It should take a star away from Amazon’s packaging standards!
