Someone I was keen to catch up with was Louise Page, who was at ExCeL on the first day of the convention.
I found her at the Wardrobe Workshop display, where along with two of her wardrobe assistants, they discussed and showed the techniques used in ageing costumes for filming.
The tie was a screen-used St George by Duffer from the anniversary special, The Day Of The Doctor.
Louise is rightly proud of her work on the costume.
From talking to Louise’s assistants, it was damaged and distressed, but the brief was misinterpreted so it never got used on screen!
Given how rare the fabric was and how difficult making the jacket had been, it was a tragedy this happened.
She was with producer Phil Collinson and director James Hawes.
The suit that was 'wrongly' distressed was the one used in the End of Time Pt 1 wasn't it? When the the Master shot energy from his hands into the Doctor's chest and leaves the circular burn damage in the suit.ReplyDelete
