Elsa in her blue suit, that was an example where Ryan had wanted one thing and then came to me and said, ‘Nope, Lou-Lou we’re going to change it up — she’s going to sing a Bowie song, and I want our take on that blue suit’. Throwing that together was fast and furious, and literally she was walking up on stage and we were still pulling the needle and threat on it.
The idea we were going for with her character is faded glamour. I love that blue suit. We’re backdating to the late ’40s with that costume, even though this season is set in 1952. The townspeople are in the ’50s and our carnival people are backdated a little bit.
The character has a very 1930s diva-superstar look to her, but she also has some very whimsical looks, some very clown-like looks. — Lou Eyrich.
