Cool Movie Site Alert: Clothes On Film

The site Clothes On Film (twitter handle: @clothesonfilm) is an eye-opener for people (like me) who don't pay much conscious attention to the art of film costume. It's an element of film storytelling roughly on a level with scenic design or even music - it's very important to characterization and establishment of period, and, if skillfully used, it can add subconscious levels of meaning to the storytelling.

The site's writers do an excellent job of mixing pieces about old and new film (and TV), commemorating the lives and careers of individual designers, and making us look for the language of costume in the films we see.
