Barmaid costume for the short Film “The Botanist” by Alex Giles. Costumes were meant to be evocative of Victorian times but accuracy was not paramount. The brief was to get the picture of “barmaid” in the viewer’s mind in a short grab. The ruffled skirt, contrast cording on corset back and textured embroidered fabric were key elements. The Golden Barmaid was part of a pair with the Pink Barmaid.
