Great costumes on the screen / Lieliski tērpi uz ekrāniem

Inspiration / Iedvesmai

Here is a list of movies, TV shows and series that have a great deal of inspirational clothing. Some of them are more, some less historically accurate. This list may grow some more with time (so it’s worth checking up on it time after time) – when the new movies and series will come out or I will simply remember something I haven’t added or I may discover something new…
Šeit ir saraksts ar filmām, TV šoviem un seriāliem, kuros sastopama diezgan liela deva iedvesmojošu un vizuāli iespaidīgu tērpu. Ne visi filmas tērpi tapuši un tiek valkāti vēsturiski atbilstošā manierē, bet arī tā var būt daļa no izklaides.  Šis saraksts ik pa laikam augs un papildināsies (tādēļ pie šī saraksta ir vērts atgriezties un tajā ielūkoties atkārtoti) – iznāks jaunas filmas un seriāli, es atcerēšos kaut ko, kas šeit vēl nav pievienots vai atklāšu kaut ko pavisam no jauna…
