Andreas – Film Costume

Film Costume

Film Costume

Costume for Andreas for the short Film “The Botanist” by Alex Giles. Costumes were meant to be evocative of Victorian times but accuracy was not paramount. Andreas is assisting Archer hunt for the “outlander” Isla who is being sought for her blood. It was hard to bring myself to ravage the costume to make it look like Andreas had been travelling rough but the Assistant director and I got to it with dirt and rocks on the first day of shooting.

Film Costume

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 embroidered corset fabric were key elements. The Pink Barmaid was part of a pair with the Golden Barmaid.
