Brazil 2015

It is time to introduce you to one of my costume design projects!

So we were given an UNLIMITED imaginative budget to create our ultimate movie cast, costumes, set, really the skies the limit on two movies. We had to choose between The Bachelorette or Brazil. Now I had never heard of Brazil before, and for those of you who haven't  its about this guy named Sam Lowry who is a harried technocrat in a futuristic society that is needlessly convoluted and inefficient. He dreams of a life where he can fly away from technology and overpowering bureaucracy, and spend eternity with the woman of his dreams. While trying to rectify the wrongful arrest of another man named Harry Buttle,, Lowry ends up meeting the woman he is always chasing in his dreams, Jill Layton. Meanwhile, the bureaucracy has fingered him responsible for a rash of terrorist bombings, and both Sam and Jill's lives are put in danger. Now this movie was originally made in the 1980s, so of course being myself I gave it a make over and set it for our dreamlike future, Think The Hunger Games Capitol meets 1984.
