God save the Queens!
I am totally obsessed with these two women so I won't bore you with the historical issues because after all a good story can always get better. My issues with this production are greatly with the seamstress and the acting director. Such amazing fabrics, such horrible fitting! Everyone's dresses looked they were playing dress up in their mothers clothing. The corsets were well not there and the dresses looked like they were sewn by the lady who made my high school play's costumes (not that she isn't great but Hollywood isn't knocking down her door). The tops were loose and ill fitting right up to the cuts on the collars! Now mind you I can't sew my way out of a paper bag so I am in no way a costumer which is why this irritates me even more. I had a hard time watching because I wanted to just reach in and adjust a top here or a collar there. I am however a history enthusiast and well that is a bit of an issue with these costumes as well. I also have take issue with the acting in this. Such great actresses but all the interactions seem forced and unnatural and the dialogue well again much like my high school play productions. I felt like I was watching a low budget series that spent all their money on fabric and then went "Oh hell we have to pay costumers and directors" and just let the props boy do both! I give 2 stars because well...I do love me some Queens!!!!!!
