Costume design for a short film, made for a genre film festival competition.
This film was made as a competition entry that had to include certain given elements (such as a prop, line, character name, etc.) and be entirely created within a certain time limit.
The story my team developed was about a man trapped in purgatory, atoning for past mistakes he made while under the influence of alcohol.
The chains on the main character and his alter ego are meant to represent this "enslavement" to the past, addiction, and the physical location of purgatory.
The angelic "social worker" that comes to evaluate the main character at the end wears a halo-like headband and a necklace of angel wings to suggest her heavenly place of origin.
