Hope everybody had a nice holiday weekend! Even though it’s still early in July, I’ve been planning a couple of fun things for August and September. Let’s start with my August plans. As you already know, August is always Summer Under the Stars Month on TCM. The great thing about Summer Under the Stars is that not only does it give you the chance to see a significant part of an actor’s body of work in one day, but it’s also a great opportunity to check out some actors you may not know very much about. So I’ve decided to spend the entire month of August watching at least one (preferably) new to me movie every day from the Summer Under the Stars line-up and post a review a day here. I figure it’ll be a good way to see some new movies and kind of get out of my movie comfort zone a little bit. I’ll start posting on August 2nd (since I have to watch something on the first) and finish up on September 1st.
Now, for September’s plans. On Saturday, September 24th, I would like to host a Fashion in Film blogathon! I’m looking for articles on:
- Costume designers
- Costumes in a particular movie
- Movies that influenced the way people dress
- Actresses who became style icons because of their movie wardrobes
- Analyses of what a character’s wardrobe says about who they are (I recommend checking out Tom and Lorenzo’s Mad Style articles for inspiration on that).
Anything else you can think of that deals with movie costumes and design is also welcome. Even though this is a classic film blog, bloggers who write about modern movies are absolutely welcome and encouraged to join in! You don’t have to sign up to participate (although commenting to let me know if you’re interested in participating is appreciated), but if you’ve got any questions, leave a comment on this post or send me an e-mail at HollywoodRevue@gmail.com. Have fun!
