Hey Y'al!


So this blog gets neglected far too often. Just doing a quick update about a commercial I styled for Qatar Airlines to promote their new Business and upper class service.

We shot over four days completely on Green Screen, Stills and moving image.

There was a cast of 14. Obviously when working on Green Screen there are certain limitations – no green in the costumes for one! Also white is very difficult against green screen so avoid where possible. The client had requested white shirts for some of the business looks plus the biggest thing we had to contend with was the fact that a traditional Qatari mans dress is something called a thobe. It’s a completely white pull over robe, which has a shirt collar detail and cuffs. Its usually heavily starched and worn with a head dress- this is called a Kaffiya. This is also white. There are various ways this can be worn. Cobra style is my personal fave! White tends to reflect green and in the edit its hard for the editor to place backgrounds behind – so each frame has to be cut out! WORK! So hence why production are usually very keen to avoid white in costumes where possible.

Qatari Women usually wear something called an Abaya – this is a long black robe worn over their clothes. A hijab is worn to cover their hair and neck.

It was really interesting getting to research these looks and learn out to wrap a hijab and style a cobra.

Below are some images from final edits!

Just a quick Blog post to let you know, tomorrow morning at 5am (Gosh, I know its early!) you can catch "Guin and the Dragon" a Show I was Costume & Make-Up Designer for on BBC 2.

It was an absolutely fabulous show to work on and its really something special to see if you can.... If you don't fancy getting up at the crack of dawn to see it, you can catch it online after its first airing!

The leading lady(or should I say girl) Isabelle Allen was young cosette in Les Miserables. A real talent to keep an eye on.. the girl is going to be a super star... mark my words.

Also appearing in the show is Louise Jameson of Doctor Who fame... wonderfully talented lady and also so lovely and funny! We had a blast on set.


In other news I'm shoot a commercial this week, which I'll fill you in on later... Oh and then a online drama later this month - its James Bond, meets superheros, meets hunger games... (yeah... its gunna be good!)


anyway... must dash! Don't be a stranger ;)

Hey Y'all...

Sorry I haven't posted in a looooooong time.. Works been crazy busy. So I haven't had enough time to sit down and write a blog entry. Right now I should be compiling some expenses, but instead I thought I would write an over due blog entry while consuming an entire bag of chocolate buttons.. yes that’s a whole bag!

So last week I was designing the costumes for the Commercial and promo for the second series of the worldwide National Geographic show called "Scam City" with Conor Woodman...

In the program Conor travels the world finding scams and unveiling them through hidden cameras.

So with the commercial they wanted to capture elements from different cities.

So we had a New York back street, a New Orleans Mardi Gras scene, a London Roof top bar & a Singapore bedroom.

It was great fun creating looks for all the Mardi Gras revelers. I found a brilliant headpiece thanks to the wonderful team at The Costume Studio.

The Little black dress company supplied me with a beautiful dress for our leading lady.

The commercial should be out in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.. Obviously I will share when I can.. but for now here’s some pics from the day i managed to grab!
