Just completed Main Character Rana's full wardrobe for the film series. Yay. Above is what she wears during the day whilst working in the garden, etc. I think she photographed very beautifully today on the macro close-up garden set. I love her completely.Corey Amaro) at its hem and cuffs. Rana's nightgown was cut down from a full size piece that the late Constance gave to the production. I made it loose for her to sleep in and added vintage shell buttons to the front and the back. All of its edges are wired for animating and the laces have been made rigid with matte medium for greater movement control.
Rana will wear the bare nightgown during the night sequences inside the cottage as she's seen going to bed in candlelight as the knitting beetles (which are DONE by the way...) at her bedside making soft clacking noises.
The writing mouse tags along with her in a pocket (below lower left) or in the apron front watching and taking notes for the journals. I love how they kiss (two above lower right). And now we can all, after 20 years, realize at last how Rana looks while actually kneeling to coax him to her, two above lower left.
Her necklace is made from precious seeds and crackled pods, bits of bone and antler, and even has a finely woven piece of cobweb lace caught between its strands, below, lower right.
Rana wears her apron while she is working inside or outside the house but will remove it and wear a traveling cloak during the troop's long trek away from the cottage to see the Sage toward the end of the story.
So the wardrobe for her breaks down like this:
In Four Akts
Day: (Cottage Interior) Rose pink tunic and skirting set over nightgown with apron on top, kerchief in hair.
Dusk: (Cottage Exterior) Same as above, replacing a straw sun hat instead of kerchief.
Dark: (Cottage Interior) Bare nightgown with hair down.
Dawn: (Desert Exterior) All clothing as described above, with the addition of a heavy, hooded traveling cloak, hair pulled back into a chignon.
If there's any aspect of Rana's costume that I haven't shown that you'd care to see, or to see something in greater detail, please just let me know! And thank you so much for coming along for this ride!
