Eiko Ishioka Dies at 73

Eiko Ishioka ,Academy Award winning costume designer had passed away.She won the Oscar for Best Costume Design for her work in  Bram's Stoker Dracula.Her costume designs always had a touch of Japanese or Asian element and always have a other worldly feel to it.Her superb work was last seen in Tarsem Singh Immortals ,which I felt deserved another nomination.Too bad she got snubbed as I felt the costumes of the Gods in Immortals are probably the most futuristic and elegant  costumes especially the headpiece which were so unique.Check out some of her beautiful ,brilliant work in films.

Her work can be seen in the upcoming film Mirror Mirror another Tarsem Singh film.May her soul rest in peace.

I hadn't heard this news. So sad to lose such a great talent.

The costumes for Mirror Mirror looked pretty impressive before, and I'm guessing that the Academy may take this opportunity to give her one last post-humous nomination.

I too hope she would earn a nomination for Mirror Mirror
