  1. I love your Rainbow Weeks. A fantastic idea and the costumes are all very beautiful. Though there are fewer orange than red movie costumes another lovely orange one is Katrina’s dress from Sleepy Hollow:

    And I do like her yellow dress as well:

    • Ooh, these are lovely – I shall add them in! Thanks very much for bringing them to my attention.
      Thank you also for your comment, & I’m so glad you’re enjoying the Rainbow Week posts! I keep going back and adding more costumes whenever I think of them, so it’s ongoing fun-with-colours for me. 🙂
