Movie Costume Designer Announced

Footwear News reports that Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood will be working on Tim Burton's upcoming Dark Shadows feature film. "It's really the most fun a person can have, because Tim really lets you do your thing," she says. 

Atwood's numerous film credits include Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Sleepy Hollow, plus award-winning designs for Chicago and Memoirs of a Geisha.

I hope they get the overcoat and cane right.

One thing the series didn't do was explore Barnabus' fish out of water element. They conscentrated on the "is he a cousin from England or is he really the man in the portrait" element.

It might be more fun to see him have to be talked out of taking a horse and carriage into town.

Should they delve into the world of 1795, it is my hope that they will copy the styles for that period from the 1795 story arc of the original daytime series. I do not want to see Barnabas dressed in the manner he was in the nighttime version, ie., white stockings and satin breeches. The Collinses lived in rural, coastal Maine, and their attire, particularly the men's, should reflect the more rugged conditions. That getup was fine for Boston, but they were not in Boston. Barnabas should have a similar look as to what Depp wore in "Sleepy Hollow", if nothing else.
