Obviously, when you make costumes, it may happen that someone are asking for a more or less customized reproduction of the costume of a film / television character of the moment so, something of Cersei Lannister could’n miss on my list of works, she is from tv series most succesfull of the last 15years i think: “Games of Thrones”.
We say that the costumistically speaking of this series is undoubtedly crazy, a multitude of details, fabrics, embroidery, particular, pearls, which literally leaves breathless, and with bowed head and knees bent down to me: the level is almost impossible to joint from most of us, but for those who want a “Inspired” suit, I have found little alternative solutions, above all economically, because when we talk about handmade embroidery is not that we can think of spending little money!
“This is the list of workers to this amazing Series : At the beginning of the TV series, lead costume designer Michele Clapton and her team were faced with the massive task of developing all of the unique clothing worn by characters across entire continents.
Besides the main Costume Designer, other major members of the costuming team on the TV series include:
- Michele Carragher (Principal Costume Embroiderer): Carragher worked on the intricate and highly detailed embroidery in the costumes worn by Cersei, Margaery, Sansa, Daenerys, and other major noblewomen.
- Simon Brindle (Costume Armor Supervisor): Brindle’s work focused on actually realizing and constructing the metal armor designs – as opposed to the other members of the costume team that focused on fabrics.
- Kevin Alexander (Hair Designer): Developed the hairstyles of major characters, including managing the 20-30 human hair wigs used in the TV series, which can cost up to $7,000 each.
- Tommy Dunne (Weapons master): Dunne’s work overlapped with the props department: he worked on creating characters’ swords and other weapons, which were part of their “costume” in the sense that characters carried them and the weapons designs reflect part of their characterization.”
This “workers” are a great professional makers,and all we can do is TO LEARN !
