I'm glad I was born when I was. My time was the golden age of variety. If I were starting out again now, maybe things would happen for me, but it certainly would not be on a variety show with 28 musicians, 12 dancers, two major guest stars, 50 costumes a week by Bob Mackie. The networks just wouldn't spend the money today.

Costumes and scenery alone will not attract audiences.
You're following your track, the story, your only plan, your map for the audience, and all the other stuff is, like, the fun stuff: the costumes, the locations, the set-dressing and the actors. They can all be variable as you like if you stick - however roughly - to the path.

An actress in a film starts every day with an hour and a half in front of a mirror, with hair and make-up and costumes.

I've always been attracted to romantic secondhand clothes. But my style developed as I started going to these strange raves where everybody had these very definitive costumes.
Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I always go all-out with my costumes.
I think of clothes a lot like costumes. I think of what I wear in real life as being my real life character's costume.
The costumes are insane on 'Once Upon a Time.' It did influence my taking the job, the fact that not only would I be horseback riding and sword fighting and traipsing through the woods but I would be doing all those things in insane, medieval garb.

There was a time when my mum would sew costumes for the dance studio so we could keep doing our classes because we couldn't afford them.
I've always worked closely with the designers and whoever's making the costumes. Comfort is the last thing you want on your mind when you're competing. In an ideal situation, you'll have something where you'll put it on and you're fine and you don't have to worry about it at all.

I can't make electronic beats, so I leave it to the pros like Boys Noize and Chromeo.
