GODS OF EGYPT
Stills from the film ‘Gods of Egypt’, showcasing many of the ornate costumes that were created. Liz Keogh Palmer’s costume designs were intricate and detailed, which required the talents of many skilled artists and craftspeople that worked their magic to weld, mould, stitch and bejewel the costumes for this film.
IN THE WORKROOM
Creating the costumes for ‘GODS OF EGYPT’
Liz explains the process behind many of her designs for ‘Gods of Egypt’ and how they were created.
“The costume workroom for ‘Gods of Egypt’ looked more like a prop-making workshop than a typical costume workroom. Sheets of metal, hides of leather and blocks of clay replaced the traditional bolts of fabric, pattern paper and trims across the many tables of this costume department.” – Liz Keogh Palmer
The role of a costume designer is more than just illustrating your ideas and concepts on paper; Liz Keogh Palmer believes a designer must also be involved in the building process of each costume and possess the skill and knowledge to execute the design successfully.
The clip below is a peek into the costume workroom of the feature film ‘I, Robot’, where Liz worked with some of Vancouver’s most talented costume makers.
