Watchmen Video Journal: Costumes
Over the next 12 months we're going to see an ever-increasing amount of media related to Zack Snyder's adaptation of Watchmen - primarily because this is the epic adaptation of one of the comic book world's greatest assets and Warner Bros wants you to know that. In addition to all of the plentiful coverage we've already shared, including the first look at the costumes, today JoBlo presents the second of 12 behind-the-scenes video journals chronicling the development of the film. Today's video journal focuses on the costumes, as spearheaded by costume designer Michael Wilkinson. If you want to be a costume designer, watch this. If you love shoes, watch this. If you just want to kill a few minutes and be impressed by the work that's going into Watchmen, watch this. It's not the best video around, but it's definitely still worth watching!
To put it simply, there is an enormous amount of characters that populate the many time periods and environments of the Watchmen world. Although we encountered many challenges while making Watchmen, one of the most interesting and rewarding was creating the wardrobe for all of those people. This is the second time I've had the pleasure of working with Costume Designer Michael Wilkinson. Once again, I'm amazed by his talent and dedication. Take a look. -Zack
