I was going to have a bash at the entire outfit as I want to make the Happy Meadows gate sign too.


I know the owner of 'Happy Meadows' very well and I'm sure he'd be more than happy for you to hang it on the gates if you were to visit and wish to photograph it.

Really Very Happy That would be awesome Geoff, I was going start it in the next few days as it happens. I'm planning a trip over the summer to try and put my signs up where the originals once were, and of course take some photos.

I wonder if he would be kind enough to tell me the width of 9 of those gate bars so I can work out the size of the sign.

This is another project I've been working on quietly, a full suit of armour and the lion shield from the Tara King opening credits, made in plastic. Much of it is nearly completed. Hopefully I'll get to finish it this summer when there are longer hotter days.

The actual dresses were designed by Paco Rabane and were apparently influenced by the outfits worn by Roman gladiators.


Very Happy Oh boy, that's quite made my day ! Looks like they were shortened for the Avengers, and the Happy Meadows masks were either inspired by the ones in Casino or the ones in the movie were adapted for the Avengers.



Ian

I never realised that the dresses had been shortened for The Avengers. I have no idea how they came to be on the show, I assume they were offloaded to a theatrical costumiers after Casino Royale and offered for hire or sale to any production who wanted them.

It's of course possible that they were shortened for another production before they reached the Avengers.

Couldn't sleep, so I made this a 4.30am this morning, Emma's door bell from 'Escape in Time'. Smile

Does it say "Shop!" when you press it? Smile
