“Kiss me I’m Polish”. Cool Supercuts video: a history of t-shirts in movies. As enjoyable as it sounds, i.e. very.
Presenting the Evil Dead bikini. It’s hell on your crotch.

60-70 Pairs of Levi 501s were used. Actually this is the least interesting fact from a very interesting interview with costume designer Lisa Jensen.

Costume designer Annie Hardinge talks about playing with period styles.
