Costume preview released for Captain America, a new movie set to be released 2011. I don't know how a new live action superhero is going to do in this market... the guy has a blue head for crimmine sakes.
Even more exciting news: Rick Heinrichs is production designing!!! (If you don't
know who that is, you should be ashamed.)
Some original artwork.... Glad they got rid of those SCALES and the spandex unitard look.
You know there is probably beaucoup de millions in this thing- which is
A LOT of pressure for the costume designers, since so much marketing is
basically going to come down to one simple fact: how he looks.
Action figures, posters, trailers, Halloween costumes, and pictures splashed over each and every single product imaginable- it all depends on if boys think he looks stupid or cool.
So far things look great... except for that hat. It's a little Luche Libre, no?
Mel Brooks' Spaceballs... a cheesy 1987 spoof that's still a great movie to watch when you're home sick from work.
Above costume sketch of Princess Vespa, our heroine, in the dress she wears through the whole movie. However, most of the time we see it seductively shredded:
A pic of the actual dress worn in filming. So. Much. Lace.
Costumes by Donfeld.... yes that's correct, he's a one named Wonder-Designer who worked mostly in the 60s and 70s. I don't know how you achieve the status of having only one name, but apparently this guy did it and fast.
Here's a great sketch of a Black Guard, a minion of Dark Helmet. (btw where has Rick Moranis gone?)
Barf and Lone Starr taking over the Black Guard's uniforms, with the Princess in that Seductively Shredded wedding dress again.
And the hero, Bill Pullman as Lone Starr, wears a button up and pant ensemble, also through mostly the whole movie. (Shown here without the classic late 80s/ Seinfeld leather jacket.)
Colleen Atwood discusses the part of her process for Alice in Wonderland, which came out on DVD/Blu-Ray June 1st. I believe this is part of the DVD special features. Hopefully there will be more as well.
