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!)

This January, Fox launched the new series of The Walking Dead on Valentines Day..

To commemorate this they wanted to get a famous British couple to recreate some iconic romantic scenes from movie history – but with a twist! THEY WOULD BE ZOMBIES!

They invited the wonderful Steph & Dom from Gogglebox to join us for the shoot. (Who were just LOVELY by the way).

So throughout the day we set up 4 different scenes, which were;

Titanic - When Kate and Leo are at the front of the boat (oh it brings a tear to your eye, just thinking about it)

Lady & The Tramp - the famous Spaghetti and meatballs scene

Ghost - at the pottery wheel

and Love Actually.

Costume wise it was great fun for me and my assistant to recreate these iconic looks as ZOMBIES!

I think my personal favourite was the Kate Winslet dress.. (you can see some pictures below of Steph & Dom before and after performing in the Titanic Scene).

the creation of Zombie costumes seems to come quite naturally to me and the team in the studio now, as we have done so many. We counted up how many we had to make last year alone and it came to nearly 60!! I now feel the pain for Eulyn Womble Costume Designer for The Walking Dead and her team having to create many more than that for each series.
