Costumes for the short-film “My New Sister”, directed by Cooper Stimson.
Designed in Summer 2012, for “Stories Growing Films” at Dartmouth College.
Because of the extremely tight budget for this movie, I decided on foregoing the route of designing and drawing the costumes first and then purchasing things to match my vision. Instead, once we had a concept in mind, the director and I headed to cheap, nearby clothing stores and put together the outfits at the store.
Our main theme was colour-driven: bold basic colours for our main characters, set against a bright yellow background. The simplistic palette aimed to capture a feeling of whimsy and playfulness.
