I haven’t posted a lot of TAZ art over the years, barring my Refuge piece, but the moment Griffin described Carey’s wedding dress in the finale this design crystallized in my brain, fully-formed. Had to commit it to paper. ❤️
SORRY I HAVE TO JUST GET MY SQUEE OUT FOR THE COSTUME DESIGNERS OF WONDER WOMAN
LOOK AT THIS. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS.
THEY GAVE BOTH MAIN CHARACTERS A HAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOBODY EVER GIVES HATS TO MAIN CHARACTERS!!!
DISCLAIMER: I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND BC IT CAN BE HARD TO SHOOT CONVERSATIONS WITH A GIANT FEATHERED MONSTROSITY ON YOUR HEAD LIKE AN EDWARDIAN GIBSON GIRL HAT. BUT LISTEN, UNTIL THE 1960S YOU DID NOT LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT A HAT. THAT WAS AS ESSENTIAL AS SAYING PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
AND DIANA’S OUTFIT. I MEAN IT’S NICE. IT PROBABLY COSTS MORE THAN MY ENTIRE WARDROBE AND RENT FOR MY APARTMENT. AND DIANA IS STILL GORGEOUS. BUT IT’S NOT DESIGNED TO MAKE HER LOOK SEXY AT ALL. IT IS DESIGNED TO BE PRACTICAL AND TRUE TO THE TIME PERIOD.
IT’S FUCKING COLD-ASS LONDON IN WW1… AND DIANA IS ACTUALLY DRESSED LIKE IT INSTEAD OF LIKE A FUCKBOY FANTASY?!?!?!
SHE’S WEARING A THICK WOOL COAT!!! AND UNDERNEATH IT SHE IS WEARING A HIGH-COLLARED SHIRT WITH LONG SLEEVES BECAUSE MORE WARMTH. AND IT’S GRAY?!??!?! BECAUSE WHY USE FANCY COLORS ON SOMETHING THAT’S JUST GOING TO GET RAINED ON FIVE MINUTES OUT OF THE STORE?!?!?
AND HER LONG HAIR IS NOT LEFT LOOSE TO FRAME HER FACE IN ATTRACTIVE CURLS, IT’S PUT UP IN A BUN BC THAT IS FASHIONABLE AND PRACTICAL
AND CAN WE ALSO TALK ABOUT HOW MINUS THE SKIRT, DIANA’S BASICALLY WEARING THE SAME THING AS STEVE DOWN TO THE COLOR SCHEME.
AND WHEN STEVE PUTS GLASSES ON DIANA TO TRY AND MAKE HER LESS GORGEOUS, ETTA MAKES FUN OF HIM LIKE MOST OF THE FEMALE AUDIENCE PROBABLY DID LMFAO.
ANYWAY I LOVE THIS MOVIE I WILL SQUEE ABOUT IT MORE LATER
Costuming for Kender, my Tiefling warlock. I really like his original costuming- the second image- but he’s changed a lot recently and I wanted his look to reflect that, so I’ve been playing with some new designs.
Carter is a Hollywood veteran, having outfitted some of the culture’s most iconic films from “Malcolm X” and “BAPS” to “Five Heartbeats” and “School Daze.” And now the multiple Oscar and Emmy-nominated costume designer is taking on afrofuturism fashions in the film set to debut next February.
She took to Twitter soon after the teaser trailer dropped on Friday to explain some her references in creating the iconic looks. From Kenya’s Maasai tribe to Lesotho’s Basotho people, the motherland is widely represented.
“I love being a costume designer because I love telling the stories of people,” she told ESSENCE. “And that’s what costume designers are; they are storytellers.”
