Are you a fan of Twin Peaks?
I watched the full box set a few years ago and loved it. I haven’t as yet seen the new series, but did get to enjoy making Diner costumes for Melbourne and Sydney, making waitress dresses, aprons and headpieces for the Australian Launch of the new Twin Peaks series on Stan.
Gelato Messina created three special ice-cream flavours and served them up on the day for fans, and I quote:
“Extra points, maybe even an extra scoop for dress ups – competing with our own staff of course; who’ll be dressed in Norma & shelly’s finest threads.”
Fabulous, turns out, the “finest threads” were cut and sewn in Bondi by Agent Costume, yes, me. YaY
Not a bad fit, considering I wasn’t able to take measurements or do fittings.
Thanks to Pedestrian TV and Sam MacDonald (WeAreHobo) for some of these photographs.
Here they are featured in a story for the Daily Mail
Here is a reference photo we worked off:
We sampled several fabric stores for a fabric match. The client was able to choose which hue they preferred. In the end, we decided to go with a colour most closely resembling the dresses from the new series.
With only a couple of weeks turn around and no fittings, i think we reached a pretty great result 🙂
