(Semi)Wordless Wednesday: Costume Party

The prompt for the Wordless Wednesday Linky Group this week is “Halloween.” I confess that I’ve never been a very big fan of Halloween, but at my relatively advanced age, I have grown to enjoy the fun of dressing up in costumes. These beauties are not mine–they were worn by Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love–but they wouldn’t be out of place at the RenFaire.

Movie costumes for auction
This gown and riding habit could be yours for a minimum bid of $5000 each.

“What Dreams Are Made Of: A Century of Movie Magic at Auction As Curated by Turner Classic Movies opens November 25 at Bonhams New York. It cost us nothing to see this rare movie memorabilia collection at a public preview last weekend in Los Angeles. It will be on view again in New York City for five days before bidding opens–if you’re a movie nut, you need to see this!
