I got to design a really fun show July 2015 for E4 - it was a comedy Sketch show Pilot called "Top 5".

Each Ep would be topical and based on celebrity mishaps counting down the "Top 5". So for example - our pilot was based on "the Top 5 celebrity Splits". Covering Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin, Rpatz, Miley Cyrus, One Direction and a range of other famous faces.

I LOVE designing the costumes on comedy-based shows like this - especially Sketch shows. It’s fast past, with a high turn around. You need to find the funny in the characters your designing and exaggerate it. Allow the audience to quickly read who it is and immediately find the funny (well that’s the plan anyway). Its giving the actors something to work with, to help portray the person they are putting across.

I worked with the producers, Make Up Designer and director to establish where we were heading with the looks, and then it was down to me, the make-up designer, and obviously our amazing teams to create them.

As I said it was lots of fun and we worked we an amazing crew and cast including the amazing Beattie Edmondson daughter of the fab Jennifer Saunders.

In March I Designed the Costumes for the latest BT / Netflix commercial with Ewan Mcgregor. Directed by Randy Krallman. It was a pretty full on Job.

We had 4 days to turn around 25 Walking Dead Zombie Costume, 25 Viking Costumes (including all amour, weapons and shields) & 15 Orange is the New Black Prison uniforms. YES it was madness! But I lived to tell the tale.

I’m always up for a challenge, and I’m NEVER beaten.

Myself and my team worked relentlessly to make sure we were fully prepped.

My supervisor was pulling weaponry and furs for Vikings from The Costume Studio in North London, two assistants were in my studio breaking down Zombie Costumes, My trainee was collecting shoes and accessories, I had a maker on board to recreate the designs of the Orange is the New Black Uniforms and while overseeing all of this I was buying/designing/arranging and basically just doing what I do but at SUPER lightening speed.

Everyone was amazing on the job and I couldn’t have done it without them.

I also had two dressers on hands on the two shoot days at pinewood to cope with the sheer amount of cast and on set checks.

But we did it, with a lot of coffee, chocolate and team spirit we got there. And I have to say it all looked pretty wonderful in the end.

My amazing friend Liz Hart designed the Make-Up and Prosthetics and did a brilliant job.

You can see the commercial here.

There are some images below of the costumes and a team selfie just to prove amongst it all we still managed to have fun. (its never dull in my costume truck!)
