Much Ado About Nothing: Colour Blind Costuming

10 July 2013 6:26 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

This is not The Cabin in the Woods. There are no big sartorial clues in Much Ado About Nothing for a switcheroo mid-point that makes you go “ahhh…now I get it”. Nonetheless, director Joss Whedon’s always inventive costume designer Shawna Trpcic could not resist the urge to pepper his film with subtle meaning. Plus everything on screen is contemporary set but shot in black and white. In costume terms it is a far tougher job to be seen and yet not seen, and even more so without the use of colour. Delicate application of fabric and pattern is vital.

“I squinted at colours as I laid out photographs of the actors in their changes from the fitting photos” explains Shawna Trpcic. “If tones were too alike I moved them around, even the textures were very important to me.”
