[[The CW|The CW’s Reign]], based loosely on the life of [[History's Mary, Queen of Scots|Mary, Queen of Scots]], has taken a decidedly modern approach to the retelling of this historic drama. And the costumes have played a huge part in this adaptation. Maddening to period purists, the show has purposely created a high-fashion hybrid, weaving in current fashion with historic styles. As a costume historian, I initially found it hard to settle into, as referenced by my first review after only one episode. However, I am thankful I took the time to revisit the show, plunging further into the storyline and costume journey. The show has proven an excellent fantasy hybrid, fascinatingly mixing period costumes for the background and older characters, but letting loose in reimagining the main and younger characters.

I recently had the chance to talk with costume designer [[Meredith Markworth-Pollack]] about her process in desconstructing this period, and reimagining it for a new audience. She shares with us great insight, and is even forgiving of my initial judgments!
