The costume designer Eiko Ishioka, most recently known for the costumes in Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, has died at 73. Ms. Ishioka won an Oscar for Bram Stoker’s Dracula and designed the costumes for the 2008 Olympics opening ceremonies in Beijing. The producers of Spider-Man have issued a statement reading in part: “Her work will continue to touch audiences for years to come, but she will be greatly missed,” and are dedicating tonight’s performance to her memory.
