What Are Recycled Movie Costumes?

Have you ever watched a movie or a television show and seen a character walk by in a gown that you just know you've seen before? No, chances are you aren't just imagining it - there are literally hundreds of great examples of costumes that have been reused and recycled for use in other films. So if you've seen a recycled costume before that you don't see in our galleries, send it in!

June 11, 2016  

I'm back from vacation, and we have three new costumes and seven new sightings. Check back next week for more updates.

Over the years I've recieved quite a few submissions for props. There really isn't a website that documents reused props in the way this site documents costumes. Quite a few people have shown interest, so I've decided that I will add a "Props" section to this site. So, if you have a reused prop, feel free to send it in, bearing in mind that costumes will still continue to be the focus of this website. I am not in a rush to add this section - I hope to maybe be able to get around to adding this section in July, but will keep you all updated.

Check out this fantastic interview on Hattin Around, with hatmaker Jane Smith Hats that was pointed out t me by Shrewsbury Lasses. It's a great interview, and Jane talks a bit about how her work was so well made that she found when she went back to the BBC years later, that they were still using her old creations in current productions.

Recycled Movie Costumes also got a mention in this Radio Times article. Check it out!
