Whenever a movie costume is on display, or is sold into the hands of a private collector, what is often heard said is just how detailed the costume is, and how much work went into it that simply cannot be seen or appreciated on film.

However, with the current shift to HD television shows and BluRay films, that is starting to change. The above costume is a wonderful example of how an absolutely exquisite gown becomes something completely different when the details can be seen. The costume worn by Geraldine Chapman as Fräulein Rottenmeier in the 2005 production of Heidi is certainly beautiful in its graceful lines and shape. However, when seen in the Doctor Who Christmas Special The Snowmen in 2012 on Jenna Louise Coleman as Clara, the previously unseen textures become more apparent, as do the subtle variations of colours in the different fabrics.
