You can make an amazing Lorax “mask” accessory – and all you’ll still need for your cool Lorax kids costume yet will be an orange shirt or sweater! If you can take that reason and wrangle a few Halloween ideas out of it, you’ll love your costume… Halloween is a time of great fun for kids and adults alike. But unknown at the time of the MGM auction, Kent Warner had found at least three other pairs of Ruby Slippers, and at least two other Dorothy dresses. The MGM management at the time didn’t think the costumes were worth enough even to sell, but maybe there was some value in the props. The house must be lit with a very low light just enough to see so as to create a scary atmosphere. These were the pair used for close-ups, the ones the Wicked Witch of the East wore when Dorothy’s house fell on her, which then became Dorothy’s. I discovered the Ruby Slippers.” And so he did, as well as the gingham pinafore that Judy Garland wore as Dorothy. Plus there was an “Arabian test pair” that Judy Garland modeled but had never worn in the movie. Judy Garland also had several pinafores made for her.
Judy also had a stand-in, and she presumably had her own pinafore. They are such treasures as the Ruby Slippers, Judy Garland’s gingham pinafore, the Cowardly Lion suit of Bert Lahr, and the vestiges of costumes from the Wicked Witch, the Winkies and the Munchkins. But the rest of the costumes: Dorothy’s pinafore, the Wicked Witch costume, the Cowardly Lion lion-skin, and others, were hung on Wardrobe’s costume-racks that stretched for hundreds of feet. Nonetheless, the pair of slippers and the Dorothy pinafore were dutifully cataloged among 1000 other costumes (400 others were subsequently added), and went up for sale at the MGM auction in 1970. Also in the auction was the hat from the Wicked Witch, and the lion costume worn by Bert Lahr. Occasionally, costumes could be used for publicity, and indeed in 1939 the Ruby Slippers went on a publicity tour, and MGM decided to contribute the pair as a prize for the girl winner of a high school “10 Best Movies of 1939” writing contest. One boy in that contest won the gavel from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and one girl, Roberta Jeffries from Memphis Tennessee won the Ruby Slippers. Roberta Jeffries Bauman of Memphis read the papers, shocked that her treasured pair of Ruby Slippers were not the only ones.
How to go about deciding which ones to find and catalog, and which ones to sell as cheap odd lots? Kent Warner had been selling costumes for several years, and he later decided to sell his treasured Ruby Slippers. And with that, Ruth Carter’s costumes now also have a place in the history books. Apart from that, there’s a bunch of videos and wallpapers to grab. Some didn’t survive. The Tin-Man costume was just a bunch of made-up parts that were likely just thrown away. All you need are 4 x AA batteries to keep the small battery operated fan inside the costume inflated. Aside from these military costumes, there are many other sexy women in uniform costumes that you can choose from. Previously, there had virtually been no Hollywood memorabilia collectors because there had been no supply of Hollywood collectibles. When the auction was held, the Ruby Slippers set the modern record for a piece of Hollywood memorabilia: $15,000. But even with that in mind, a set of sheets and a painted white mask still became one of the scariest faces on the silver screen. But Warner set about with diligence to scour MGM’s wardrobe storage and to find the most important costumes in its inventory.
So which Oz costumes had Kent Warner discovered while doing inventory at MGM, costumes that he kept? These storybook costumes don’t fit so well in the other categories so they are getting their own instead! Each week, up movie costume I’m getting inspiration from a celebrity and copying five of her looks as closely as possible. It is possible to obtain a flash mask or try Spiderman appear to defend citizens though trick or healing. As E.T. waddles around town in a ghost sheet passing children in costumes, we’re reminded of what trick or treating used to be. The 8-part Harry Potter films brought Rowling’s words to the silver screen, not just by bringing wholesome characters to life, but by creating elaborate, detailed sets of locations like the Great Hall and the Forbidden Forest and true-to-word costumes, along with investing in stellar artwork and special effects. The fate of the Oz costumes, as with all the other MGM costumes post-production, was to go into storage in the three-story wardrobe building at the MGM studio lot in Culver City. These usually involve the horror aspect of Halloween, which is a lot of fun when you go wandering the streets. We love the idea of being a color for Halloween, but being a pantone color is legit – it’s also super simple.
