Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, one of my favorite reads is finally coming to the silver screen! We can’t wait to see Penny Dreadful’s Eva Green transform into the black feathered Miss Peregrine in Tim Burton’s adaptation of the book. We especially love the movie trailer below where you see Miss Peregrine’s full metamorphosis! Set to be released this September, we can predict that Miss Peregrine’s character is sure to be a hit this Halloween season! You can transform yourself into Miss Miss Peregrine with a pair of our Black Feather Mockingbird Wings and Black Feather Collars and Chokers.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Burton described Eva Green’s character Miss Peregrine, the headmistress of the peculiar orphanage, as a “weird Mary Poppins like character — a strong and mysterious person who looks like she could turn into a bird. That’s Eva.” – www.moviepilot.com

Carnval Queen and King Collage

“…It’s fulfilling to see all the hard work put into Carnaval. It’s so exciting to see Sistas-Wit-Style come down the road with so much energy and excitement with smiles across our masqueraders faces — it brings so much joy… To prepare for Carnaval, Sistas-Wit-Style has been teaching free Caribbean dance classes to our Masqueraders every Saturday which are optional, our mas camp is open day and night for costume production… I would love to send special thanks to our designers at Sistas-Wit-Style; Annabelle Goodridge, Stephanie Dixon, Tiara Welch, Azer Moore. Our many volunteers and masqueraders as well because without them there would be no Sistas-Wit-Style…” – THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF CARNAVAL SAN FRANCISCO –– DIGITAL EDITION

Harlem Nights | Academy Feathers

by Cristina Muñoz Brown on March 30, 2016

in COSTUME,FASHION,FEATHER TRENDS,STAGE & SCREEN

Harlem Nights’ Joe I. Tompkins was nominated for an Academy Award for best costume design and we can see why just by looking at this movie still of the lovely Jasmine Guy as Dominique La Rue. Of course we love the Ostrich Feather details used throughout the whole film! And while the movie is now a cult classic, the costume design is more than enough reason to watch and the Academy agreed!

Harlem Nights | Academy Feathers

“I originally thought we should shoot in black-and-white, but after researching, I decided to make black skin tones the most essential color in the film and use a limited palette. That would set off and highlight the beautiful skin tones of our cast, which was mostly black. I didn’t know what Eddie and Larry Paull and Joe Tompkins would think about this, so I created a color chart to demonstrate my idea. After seeing it, they supported the idea, and it became the basis for the look of the entire picture. In that environment, a few very strong color accents seemed to jump off the screen, but most importantly, the skin tones of the actors dominated each scene.” – Woody Omens, the film’s cinematographer

Harlem Nights | Academy Feathers

Get the look with our Champagne or Dusty Rose Ostrich Feather Boas and Black Ostrich Plumes or Floss.

The Look of Love | Ursula Andress in Casino Royale

We recently watched the film Casino Royale and couldn’t believe the amount of feathers that were used in the costume designs. From Natural White Coque Tails to luxurious Ostrich Floss and Boas; Ursula Andress as Vesper Lynd embodies the Look of Love in the ultimate spy spoof of all time; Casino Royale 1967 .

Most impressive are Katniss’s costumes which are truly a work of art! Cinna’s “people” spent time with us here at The Feather Place Los Angeles to source and get inspiration as to what feather types they wanted to use on the costumes. We are so lucky to have behind the scenes “feather” knowledge on several blockbuster hits like this one!
