Welcome to Galinda's Wardrobe! This
site contains research, references images and other information
regarding the costumes from the Broadway musical Wicked to help you with
making your own Wicked costumes. Be it Glinda's Bubble Dress to
Elphaba's Act II dress, we have it all! Please browse our research
sections and forums. New updates will be displayed on the front
few pictures from the Dutch production of Wicked have surfaced!!
Very excited! The costumes look very very similar to the German
production costumes. Here are the few pictures that I have found
(I found them on the Dutch Wicked Facebook page). The production
will premiere November 6th of this year at the Cirustheater
in Scheveningen, Netherlands. Glinda will be played by Chantal
Janzen and Elphaba by the German productions very own Willemijn Verkaik
very exciting video to share with you guys! A new Behind the
Emerald Curtain video just came out, another costume addition.
This one is all about the beading in the costumes! Definitely
worth a watch! They show a lot of Madam Morrible's costumes up
close because hers have so much intricate beading. And don't forget the costume video about Madam
Morrible they previously release (see here).
I also took some screencaps from the video which you can see
below. I will eventually add these to the separate costumes pages.
here is a fun update! Some pictures from the Denmark production
have finally been released and I have to say I am really loving the
costumes, they are so pretty! One thing that is interesting is the
original pictures that were released, those costumes are not used in
these pictures at all so it will be curious to see if they end up not
using them at all. Here are the pictures that were released:
Caution, very high res!
and Boq at Shiz
Dillamond and the Wizard
and the Grimmerie
in her wheelchair at Shiz
as You're Mine
you ever thought of how you would fair in captivity?
There is also news that there is going to
be a production in the Netherlands! No further news related to
this production but I will post about it when I find out more! I
also have lots of other great info to add when I get the chance, I have
been sick so didn't have time for a while to update but should have lots
of time now! So look forward to updating again soon!
huge update. I have added 350+ pictures to the site, almost every
single page of the site has been updated including pictures added to all
pages and information/pictures added to the Analysis
pages. I made a page for the Denmark
and Finland productions under Research as well as split up the Bubble
Dresses into separate pages because there were too many sections on
the Bubble page and I thought it was getting to be too much. A lot of great stuff was added so check everything
out. Here are a few tidbits that were added thanks to Pink
Goes Good with Green, check out the pages for more:
big thank you to Merina
again who pointed me in the direction of an online Finish magazine
with a ton of pictures from the Helsinki
production. It has a lot of what we saw already (posted below)
but had a few new things or new angles of pictures we already
have. I took some large screencaps of some of the pictures that I
found the most interesting and showed new things, I don't have time at
the moment to do all of them, if I get a chance I will. But like I
said, some of it repeats what we have already seen. It does have
some more pictures of the ensemble though if you are interested.
If you would like to see the rest, which I recommend, go HERE
to see the magazine, it is about 40 pages!
look at Popular
and Tin man Boq
the Good, I kind of like her crown XD
Glinda? Chistery and Glinda, he is handing her the green
bottle and Elphie's hat.
Nessarose at the Ozdust, you can see her shoes on her lap
Well this is exciting! The Ozmopolitan Newsletter is going
to be doing Behind the Emerald Curtain Videos and the first one came out
today. The first video was a Costume Edition!
Exciting! The video focused on Madam Morrible's costumes and was
very informative and interesting. Check it out below or go HERE
to watch it.
big thank you to Merina
who was kind enough to send me a bunch of pictures from the Helsinki
production that have surfaced! Some of these pictures are very
bizarre in my opinion. If you remember, the production is not
exactly the same as the current productions, as evidenced by these
pictures as well. For now I am going to just put them up on the
main page here until I can figure out where I want to put these
pictures. And what is with the Greek Goddess Glinda? I put
them in a sort of chronological order, or at least my best guess.
There was also a big update on the Helsinki Website for Wicked
but seeing as I don't speak Finnish, not sure what it says. :)
So, I did a little reorganizing of a few pages and added some new
info. I rearranged the Bubble
Dress page into better sections, separating the West End and German
Dress pictures, and added a Australian and Japanese
Section. So now each production has its own section on that page
for better organization (US, West End, German, Australian, Japanese,
Finnish, and Denmark). I also added some info to the Bubble
Dress Analysis to include more pictures/info on the non-US
productions. I have a ton of pictures from the non-US productions
of various costumes that I intend to upload when I get the chance but I
think I made a good start. I also added some info the Galinda's
Shiz uniform page about her original uniform and also updated the Analysis
page for this costume as well.
I also came across some sort of Finnish
magazine viewable online that you can zoom in on that had one of the Helsinki
pictures we saw before. So I made a huge spliced together of
the main picture that shows Glinda and Elphaba in a very high resolution
so you can see some detailing better.
photo from the Helsinki production has surfaced and you can see both
Galinda and Elphaba's costumes a little better as well as Galinda's
wand! Her wand appears to have a star on the top of it but you can
only see a little bit of it, the rest of the top is behind Elphaba's hat
in this picture. You can also see that her sleeves have
rhinestones on them. You can also see that Elphaba's costume still
looks a little patchworky but much different than the US and other
productions. Here is the picture:
I have also added some info about the
Dress and Galinda's original Shiz
uniform to the Costume Research sections. I will be
adding that info to the Costume Analysis in the future. See those
pages for the pictures.
I was a little confused about the pictures I posted a couple of days
ago, those are of the Denmark production of Wicked, not the
Here are the Finnish production photos
that have surfaced, I found them on the website for the Helsinki,
Finland Production, go HERE
to see the site (Pink
Goes Good with Green has them posted as well). Elphaba looks a
little photoshopped to me in these though. I am assuming that the
third picture is of Madam Morrible, Fiyero and the Wizard, but alas, I
don't read Finnish so couldn't read the site. :)
And again, here are the Copenhagen
pictures in case you missed them as well as some fabric from Joann's
that would be perfect for Glinda. HERE
is the website for the Copenhagen, Denmark Production.
Found in the Bridal fabric section of
Joann's and is $4.99/yrd.
two updates in two days! Amazing. I finally finished the Elphaba
Costume Analysis! So they are all uploaded and accessible via
Analysis page. Go check them out! Now that that
is done my next update should hopefully be to upload tons and tons of
pictures I have that I have been meaning to upload. :)
Okay, so I apologize for being for not updating lately. I have
been so busy in real life I haven't had a lot of time to update.
Don't worry, I am still here and have tons to share. And do not
fear, I will get to Elphaba's costume analysis. :) Here are
a few snippets of info to share until I get a chance to do a real
pointed me to THIS
youtube video that includes some footage of the San Francisco tryouts
and you can see Glinda's blue Popular dress BUT, it has a
different top in this video. It has a more vest-type top with a
collar. From what I can tell in the small amount of footage (best
parts to watch are 6.27 to 6.52) it looks like the vest has a diagonal
closure in the front like the Thanks Goodness top.
Interesting. Here are two quick pictures of it. These have
been added to the Popular page.
In some other interesting news, some info
about the Finnish production has
finally surfaced on musicalschwartz.com.
The production is non-replicated meaning it will be different from
current productions in design, content and costumes! See this
page of Stephen Schawrtz's site for some tidbits of info. And
here are a few pictures of Galinda and Elphaba from the Denmark
are SUPER HIGH RES! you have been warned!). I will upload my
thoughts about the costumes when I get a chance but I will say that I am
in love with the top of Galinda's dress, so sparkly! :)
I did also find some fabric at Joann's
that is almost exactly like the white netting on Galinda's dress.
I found in the Bridal fabric section and is $4.99/yrd. Here are
Until later, new site content coming
3/28/10: Finally got a
chance to finish some of the costume analysis I have been working
on. So there is now a new section to the website, Costume
Analysis. Here you can find breakdowns
from head to toe and analysis of the costumes to help aid in figuring
out how the costume is constructed. I will only be doing Galinda
and Elphaba's costumes only for now, may add other characters in the
future. For now, I have only uploaded Galinda's Costume
analysis because that was all I have finished so far. Check
back later for Elphaba's costumes! Enjoy!
2/22/10: I finally got a chance to
upload some Ensemble Pictures to the Ensemble
Page. I uploaded around 75 pictures. Thank you to
everyone who sent me pictures for this page, I really appreciate
it. I am still working on the analysis pages of Galinda and
Elphaba's costumes so stay tuned for those coming soon, still working on
them. Until then, enjoy the new pictures!
01/26/10: I am currently in
the process of doing some breakdown and analysis of all of Galinda and
Elphaba's costumes to post (most of Galinda's are done). They will
breakdown each costume in detail from head to toe to make it a little
easier to figure out what is in them for people doing research. I
am doing this because I realized having a whole bunch of pictures might
not be helpful to some and breaking it down from head to toe may make it
easier to see all the components of the costumes. There will be a new section just for these analysis. I am only
going to be doing Galinda and Elphaba for now though because it does
take a lot of time to do (especially Galinda, lol). In the future
I may do other characters. So look for those in the next couple of
weeks! And I still have a ton of pictures to post, real life has
just gotten the better of me at this time so haven't had time to post
anything. They will come though. I am also looking for
pictures of the Ensemble because I really don't have very
many. If anyone has a bunch of pictures of other cast members and
are willing to share, let
01/04/10: A fairly large
update to several pages. Added around 75 pictures to the following
pages: Glinda's Emerald
City Dress, Galinda's
Shiz uniform, Glinda's Thank
goodness dress, and a few to the Bubble
Dress page including some wonderfully high resolution pictures from
Jess who took them at a display in Sydney (examples below). Thanks
Jess! Go to the bottom of the Bubble
Dress page to see these pictures. I know that was a huge
Glinda update, next time I promise to add stuff from other
12/24/09: Merry Christmas to
all! A small Christmas present for everyone, I added 30 more
pictures to the Bubble
Dress page. :) I also fixed that page so it loads
faster, some of the thumbnails were too big and made the page really
slow to load so I fixed that. Enjoy! I plan on updating some
more pages later tonight if I get a chance so stay tuned! And a
big thank you to everyone who has emailed me pictures!
12/10/09: I added 20+
pictures to the Elphaba
Act II dress page, mostly some up close exhibit pictures that show
the details of the dress really nicely. Below area few
examples of what I added. I also added 10+ pictures to the Bubble
Dress page, mostly pictures of the Stuttgart/West End dress (mostly
Stuttgart, I love that version). Check out the pages for more!
12/01/09: Hey guys, I added
some cool pictures I found at Susan Hilferty's website of her design
sketches (found on her
to some of the characters pages. I also came across this
really great interview at threadbanger.com with Susan Hilferty that
I took a few screencaps of because she shows the undershirt of the
Bubble Dress really nicely. Go watch it if you haven't seen it
before, it is really interesting! Here a a few of the screencaps
from it, check out the Bubble
Dress page for more! (sorry for the > in the middle of the
pictures, I had to pause the video to take caps). You can
also see how very iridescent and pearly the fabric is!
11/17/09: It was brought to my
attention that I had not included a page for Elphaba's final dress she
wears in her very last scene. Somehow I forgot to make one before,
so, there is now a page for her Finale
Dress. It is a hard costume to find pictures/info on but I was
able to put a little something together. Check out the page here.
If I find out more info I will add it later. :)
11/16/09: Well, Galinda's Wardrobe
is up and running again! I am your new mod, Andrea, aka
erisedstraeh on the forums.
:) We have moved to a new server and are in the process of
compiling all the information and pictures we have and getting the site fully up and
running again. I have lots of other pictures I need to upload but
I think I have a good start on everything. Please check out what
we have so far and check out the forums. :).
And if anyone knows of any good Wicked sites to link to with good
information on Wicked or Wicked news, please let me know so I can add it
to the site.
Wicked and all related to it are (C) their
