Late last year we were approached by British Independent film maker Richard McEvoy-Crompton to make a couple of costumes for a pilot episode of a supernatural, action adventure, based on the folk law, myths and legends of Britain. Rick asked us to make two coats, the first being the lead character Addison and the second the Reynardine. Addison’s coat needed to be loosely aristocratic, loosely ecclesiastical and move well on camera. As a demon hunter he has to be able to move freely during brawl scenes, chasing scenes and the coat has to allow him to do this. The coat was made from a lightweight pinstripe wool, fully lined with an velvet collar. We pleated, vented and placed a strap adjustment on the back of the coat. The coat can either be worn open or fully fastened using the double breasted buttons and collar strapping.

The Reynardine coat had to symbolise the fox the character is based around. Made from a warm reddish flecked wool, the face of the character is framed in fake fur, all of which is heavily distressed. Inside the coat are buttons which have little foxes on them to help enforce the character the actress is portraying.

Once the costumes were complete we got to visit set and watch them in action. We are now looking forward to the final cut and seeing the results of many months hard work from the cast and crew.

On Tuesday evening we attended the preview of Dark Fables for the cast and crew. We would like to say a big thank you for inviting us along, it was lovely to see the cast and crew again and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was really great to see the finished pilot episode, it left us wanting to see more, find out more about the characters and see what other local myths the characters could uncover. A huge well done to everyone involved, you should be very proud.
