I really wanted Credence to be pulling inwards, so I brought a meanness to his costumes. The collar’s very high and tight, with a slightly bug shape to it. I did a lot of breakdown on his jacket, so it had a worn-out quality. It’s the only thing he had. He and Jacob are the only two characters in the movie that don’t have a coat and I did that on purpose. There’s a poverty to not having a coat.
