The other night I was finding it very difficult to sleep, so I turned on the television and watched Troy (2006). It is not a great film, but it does have the most fantastic costumes. The Trojans wear gorgeous indigo-dyed outfits, and it is worth watching just for those. I couldn’t find many pictures on the web, but all the way through people turn up in beautifully dyed cloth. Towards the end Peter O’Toole as Priam turns up in a gorgeous white robe with dip-dyed indigo shoulders. Lovely. Here are a few pictures that I could find.
I suggest some knitting or something for the interminable battle scenes, though.
