Outlander

This adaptation of the popular historical fiction/time travel books gets a lot right, but controversy ensued when the costume designer posted online some so-called facts about 18th-century hygiene. We review the movie and the costumes and discuss the controversy — and how they REALLY handled hygiene back in the day.

A Podcast About Costume Movies

Ever watch an adaption of Pride and Prejudice and think "Austen totally wouldn't recognize what Lizzie is wearing"? Have you cringed at zippers in the backs of medieval gowns on film? Do you laugh at the latest costume drama's idea of hoop skirts being appropriate for the 1880s?

Then you're a Frock Flicker! Tune in to our podcasts where we rip into Hollywood's attempt at historical costuming and talk about exactly why they're not accurate to the eras. But we're not just dissers -- we'll also look at costume movies we love, and tell you why they're fabulous, beautiful, fascinating films.
