Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

4 Nov

A bumper “Behind the Insta-Scenes” this week including Halloween both on and off set, cast hangouts, reminiscing and dancing. There is always time for dancing.

 

Everything about this photo brings me so much joy. I miss Parks and Rec.

 

More Parks behind the scenes delights from Retta and a good reminder that Aziz’s new show Master of None lands on Netflix in two days!

 

Continuing the Parks and Rec theme and combining it with the musical that like many people I can’t stop listening to at the moment. The fact that Ben Schwartz has Jean Ralphio’s faked death headstone is also aces.

night shoot got us like 😐😑 #Brooklyn99 😉

There’s a whole lot of late shoot not so happy face from the B99 team.

 

And then these face parts expressions.

 

Entering the Halloween portion and You’re the Worst doubled down on Sunday Funday this season with a fantastic tapestry of scares, amazing costumes, hilarity and relationship drama.

 

Which Aya Cash then used as an IRL dress-up solution because why not? These wings give me so many teen flashbacks and I still have a pair stuffed in the back of my wardrobe.

 

Bowling shoes plus Halloween equals this fun set-up on Sleepy Hollow. Abbie’s Beyonce is one of the best costumes I have seen on TV.

 

January Jones continues her excellent Insta hashtag game and a spot on look for Halloween.

Stark sister feels.

 

Throwing a Stark brother into the blurry mix – will they ever be reunited on Game of Thrones?

 

Look who came back to The Mindy Project! Although I still want a talk show with Adam Pally and Ben Schwartz to be more than a onetime thing.

 

The Flash set looks like a lot of fun…

 

Even with the slightly questionable snack preferences.

 

Frankie J. Alvarez shows off some sweet moves in his super tight jeans in this throwback to season 2 of Looking.

 

Woah! Scream Queen spoilers alert! Not really, but now I really want Gwyneth Paltrow to be the killer.

 

I haven’t watched this week’s Scream Queens yet and while I keep fluctuating between enjoyment and eye roll toward this show (standard reaction to a Ryan Murphy project) this pairing does raise my interest levels. Now to make the Gwyneth thing actually happen.

 

Speaking of horror show and Maya Kazan’s got the most terrifying addition to her look on The Knick.

Ending things this week with this very hypnotic video. And even though I can only see a tiny portion of Elizabeth Banks’ outfit, it already looks like she is killing it on the Mockingjay press tour.

Winners and losers hanging out together all smiles at the Governors Ball. Yes I yelped with happiness when Questlove appeared on stage during “Everything is Awesome.”

 

The only caption this needs is swoooooooooooooooooon.

What to do between parties? Grabbing a burger with Jonathan Groff in a tuxedo sure sounds like a great idea. Just don’t spill any sauce on that white shirt.

About last night… #Looking #Halloween

A post shared by Looking (@lookinghbo) on

 

Halloween in February for Looking with an excellent and high on the cringe factor episode. Bonus points for costumes which actually looked homemade rather than the TV version of homemade.

 

The Mindy Project excels in the guest department and what could be better than a very beardy Stephen Colbert as a priest?! Not much.

 

Parks and Recreation finale sadness combined with how much I heart this cast equals all the feelings.

 

Ben Schwartz has been posting Parks and Rec behind the scenes photos for the duration of season 7 and this is definitely one of my all time fave Jean-Ralphio moments.

 

Splendid dresses and posing skills from the ladies on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

 

Even spies still want to grab a quick cup of coffee.

5 Feb

Welcome to another edition of “Behind the Insta-Scenes” and this week we have show crossovers, some sunshine, Parks and Recreation flashbacks, production art and a hilarious Broad City video.

 

Another Flash/Arrow visit is in the pipeline and here’s Brandon Routh taking a visit to Star City for some suit assistance.

 

Ben Schwartz continues his Tuesday trip down Parks and Rec memory lane and this week he revisits the days of Entertainment 720. Woah those panda sneakers and major desk chair envy.

 

Kroll Show took a visit to a very familiar looking bar.

 

Niece Denise! A Kroll Show double this week as I can’t resist this much fringe.

 

Tracee Ellis Ross is torturing us with this glorious sunshine lunch break photo.

 

This is a very cool custom made prop from the set of Elementary.

Ilana is awesome on Broad City, but she is also a terrible person to share a desk with and her colleague Nicole is keeping track of everything. Press play to find out what Ilana has done this time.

 

The highlight from the latest Tonight Show lip sync battle would definitely please Abbi from Broad City.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

22 Jan

Happy Thursday! And yes it is time for another Behind the Insta-Scenes roundup and this week we’ve got an array of photos from sets such as Parks and Recreation (enjoy it while you can as this is the final season), The Good WifeThe Mindy Project (with a bonus special gift from Mindy) and Jane the Virgin.

Family portrait at The Good Wife today.

Father/daughter time on The Good Wife and Sarah Steele is always a welcome sight as Marissa Gold; can she be my body woman please? I wouldn’t mind a glass of milk or a helpful snark filled bit of advice.

 

What better way to congratulate someone on an Oscar nomination than with a special wreath and the Wreath Witherspoon gag from The Mindy Project’s festive episode is still making me laugh a month later. Glad to see Reese Witherspoon is into this new holiday tradition.

 

Jenny Slate loves a t-neck (is Felicity her style icon?) and Kroll Show is giving her an outlet to wear this garment.

 

Going full Claire Danes as Juliet on the set of Jane the Virgin – wings like this will always conjure up Romeo + Juliet feelings – with Gina Rodriguez teasing a potential Chapter Seventeen costume look.

 

The all-denim Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa styling is still one of my favorite Parks and Recreation costume moments and hopefully we will get to see more outrageous outfits from the pair in this final season.

 

More from Parks and Rec’s final season (*sob*) with Retta treating us to a closer look at April’s flashback look from her very specific leaving party theme.

 

Another excellent Mindy Project guest star and Vanessa Williams is getting in on the amazing coat and patterned dress action.

18 Dec

Last Friday saw the final day of shooting on Parks and Recreation and the cast and crew thoroughly documented the day; so this week’s Behind the Insta-Scenes is going to be an all Parks special. The tag #ThankYouParksCrew is repeated along with sadness as this show comes to an end.

 

Group outdoors shot with a lovely park providing the backdrop.

 

And another bigger group photo this time in the Pawnee Courthouse and courtesy of the Douche himself, Nick Kroll. “Old Stoneface” makes an on the wall cameo.

 

Take that Oscar selfie.

Super smiley badass faces.

 

Jean-Ralphio has always had the best biggest hair as is evident in Ben Schwartz’s photo from his first day on set back in 2009.

 

Writer Greg Levine shared both old and new photos including picking out Leslie’s wedding ring – the proposal is in my top 5 Parks moments – and I’m glad to see Adam Scott here for this decision,

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

27 Sep

It’s been a big red carpet week thanks to the Emmys (for all our coverage head here) and so Out of the Box is going to return its focus to the costuming that has caught our eye on TV this week. Featuring characters that are Out of the Box regulars and some new faces this is a snapshot of the week on TV and costuming that has caught our attention.

Breaking Bad hat and parka

The penultimate episode of Breaking Bad saw Walter White isolated and broken as he started a new life in a cabin somewhere in New Hampshire. It’s not much of a life as he has to spend $10,000 for an hour of company and two copies of Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium is all he has to watch. His first attempt to leave the cabin begins with him putting on the Heisenberg hat; a symbol of the empire he had created and the elusive figure that was feared. Combined with the parka coat and the surroundings this takes any of the menace out of it and the trip is futile, with Walt returning to his cabin of solitude. The next time we see him venture outside he has ditched the Heisenberg hat and opted for a more sensible beanie and it appears as if Heisenberg has gone for good. That is until he sees the Charlie Rose interview with his former partners and for one last episode Heisenberg is set to return.

Sleepy-Hollow-102

Oh Sleepy Hollow you are the most nonsensical fun that is on TV at the moment and the first two episodes have certainly squeezed a lot of mythology into them. The one thing that is grounding the show is the central relationship between Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane and Nicole Beharie’s Lt. Abbie Mills. The crazy story part isn’t necessarily what hooks people into a show; it’s the chemistry between the characters that increases the satisfaction of a journey like this and it makes the ridiculous moments easier to swallow. Ichabod is still dressed in the clothes he arrived in and it’s unclear whether he will get a wardrobe update. This helps with the notion that he isn’t from this time and I can’t quite picture him in jeans and a t-shirt, though I also really want to see the inevitable makeover episode when they don’t have witches and headless horseman to deal with.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is another new show that benefits from a strong central pairing with Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher playing two very different cops. Braugher is the new Captain at the precinct Andy Samberg’s Detective Jake Peralta works at and the second episode reinforced the conflict between Jake’s easy going style and Captain Holt’s by the book attitude. Uniform has been a point of contention in both the pilot and with their undercover surveillance this week; Jake is seeing how far he can push his new captain. Jake’s minivan disguise is Harvey Norgenbloom and Harvey wears sandals, not the best footwear choice for chasing after bad guys. This push and pull works because Samberg is so good at doing the goofy manchild role and Braugher has the perfect level of deadpan. I’ve been impressed with both of these episodes and how quickly these characters have been established.

NG_ep302-sc20_1080Jess got wasted on New Girl this week after Nick’s solid advice that drinking makes you cooler and her hangover outfit is wonderful; the plaid shirt she slept in – it looks like it could be one of Nick’s but it’s actually a woman’s shirt that you can buy here – the key is that it is baggy as you don’t want anything too tight after a night of heavy drinking and toilet bowl dancing. The sunglasses are an important addition as is the coffee cup that Jess is clutching (a can of Diet Coke is my preferred solution).

Parks and Recreation - Season 6It’s April’s yellow mustard hoodie that is top of my clothing wish list and you’d be surprised how hard it is to find something this simple. Parks and Recreation returned for season 6 yesterday with a double bill episode and a trip to London (and Scotland). April’s dress at the awards ceremony is the same Alice + Olivia dress that Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford was seen wearing at New York Fashion Week. Along with this mustard hoodie there are other repeated outfits featured in this premiere of Parks and Rec that are on my most wanted list including Leslie’s mixed polka dot blouse and it makes sense to reuse costumes with these types of characters.

Jean Ralphio and Mona Lisa

Special mention has to go to the wardrobe of Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa; this more than double denim explosion is as amazing as Jean-Ralphio’s hair is huge.
