Mirror Mirror’s Enchanted Costumes, Free Activity Sheets, + *GIVEAWAY*

by Alecia on June 28, 2012

One of the world’s most beloved fairy tales takes a hilarious turn in the fresh, exciting film starring Oscar® winner Julia Roberts – Mirror Mirror, which was released June 26th on DVD, Blu-Ray, & Digital Copy. After she spends all her money, an evil enchantress queen (Roberts) schemes to marry a handsome, wealthy prince (The Social Network’s Armie Hammer). There’s just one problem – he’s in love with a beautiful princess, Snow White (Lily Collins, The Blind Side). So, the sinister queen banishes Snow White from her own kingdom! Now, joined by seven rebellious dwarves, Snow White launches an epic battle of good vs. snarky in this funny, magical movie that the whole family will love.

We were sent a copy of the movie to review this week and LOVED it! My husband and I are such big Julia Roberts fans anyway, but this role suits her perfectly! Rated PG, this is a hilarious take on an old fairy tale that is entertaining (and appropriate) for the whole family! If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check it out soon.

Some of the biggest characters in Mirror Mirror are the elaborate costumes created by the late costume designer Eiko Ishioka. Born in Toyko in the late 1930’s, the designer graduated from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music before starting her career in the U.S and going on to become an Oscar award-winning costume designer. We wanted to honor the designer’s legacy by taking a closer look at her past creations in films such as The Cell, Dracula and of course, her breath-taking designs in Mirror Mirror.

  • MIRROR MIRROR – Ishioka’s final designs can be seen in Mirror Mirror, a modern day depiction of the classic tale of Snow White. Once again collaborating with Tarsem Singh’s imaginary vision, the designer’s final costumes are full of color and
  • DRACULA – Not surprisingly, Eiko Ishioka won an Oscar for her design work in 1992’s Bram Stroker’s Dracula. Ishioka’s most notable designs were Dracula’s (Gary Oldman) red body gown and Lucy’s (Sadie Frost) goth-vampire inspired wedding dress. The elaborate details in the costumes were as eerie as the characters themselves and Ishioka’s designs were deemed Oscar worthy when she took home the award for best design in a feature film that year.
  • THE CELL – Director Tarsem Singh made his film debut with the psychological thriller, The Cell. The dangerous and fantasy like subconscious of a serial killer was brought to life with the help of the perfect collaboration between director Tarsem Singh’s vivid imagination and Eiko Ishioka’s incredible costume designs.
  • MILES DAVIS – TUTU ALBUM – Eiko Ishioka showed her designing talents in other art forms, including graphic designing. She won a Grammy for her design work on the cover of Miles Davis’ album “Tutu” and she also directed Bjork’s music video for “Cocoon.” Ishioka never swayed too far from her first love, designing costumes, and she couldn’t resist doing the entire costume work for Cirque de Soleil’s production of Verakai.
  • THE FALL – Singh and Ishioka worked on the film, The Fall, which takes place in the imagination of a 1920’s woman. The designer created fantasy inspired designs.
  • IMMORTALS – Some of Ishioka’s final creations can be seen in Singh’s action Greek Mythology film Immortals. Ishioka was inspired wanting to create her own vision of greek mythology.
