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

The more I hear about this movie, the fewer doubts I have. Originally I was extremely skeptical of the whole idea, but I'm beginning to get very excited about it. They seem to have been doing a good job of "being respectful to the source material," and I hope that the other aspects of the film have been following suit. My only question - Where is Dr. Manhattan in all this? I haven't heard or seen a single thing about him, and he was one of the most important parts of the graphic novel. I hope they don't try to leave him out; he is such a unique character.

Sounds like I am with all of you.. I am not sure why I had such a huge grudge against its production from the beginning, but I did and now the film is working back up for me.... this video is a BIG step towards me accepting that this film will be worth watching
