From Bob's obituary in the New York Times. Robert DeMora was a witty costume designer and art director whose fantastical, mischievous creations embellished Bette Midler on stage and screen, as well as the casts of "Risky Business" and "Marathon Man" among other films. For more than four decades, Mr.
DeMora amplified and often art directed Ms. Midler's ever more elaborate stage extravaganzas with rigor, scholarship and a Dadaist's sense of the absurd. He was responsible for, among the other things, the ruched pink sequin gown of her "Divine Miss M" days and the sparkly spangled tail and sheathe of Delores DeLago, Ms. Midler's bawdy, wheelchair-riding mermaid. "The first thing he did that really knocked me out were these waitress costumes that opened up and became the American flag, " she said.Every bead had a meaning and a history behind it. His eye was impeccable, and he was a genius at doing things on a shoestring. In addition to his work for Ms. DeMora had a successful career as a costume designer for Hollywood. Besides "Risky Business, " the 1983 teen sex comedy with Tom Cruise, and "Marathon Man, " the 1976 thriller with Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier, he created costumes for, among other films, "Cruising, " William Friedkin's 1980 police drama starring Al Pacino, and worked with the costume designer Ann Roth on "The Birdcage, " Mike Nichols's 1996 comedy with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. DeMora was nominated for two Emmys, for art direction and costume design, for "Diva Las Vegas, " a documentary about Ms.
