CASTWithin any production costume is very important it not only needs to be visuallyand astatically pleasing but must also meet key conventions of the specific genre.The costume allows the audience to easily identify with each character and toestablish under which form each meet.Within our production there are three characters these are:• Girl one – Played by Hannah Molloy-Herat• Girl two – Played by Natalya Martin• Demon – Played by Helena Morais
GIRL ONE – HANNAH MOLLOY-HERATWe have decided to dress Hannah in apair of grey jogger bottoms and a plainblack vest top. Within the story the girlshave been awoken by a noise comingfrom downstairs. We therefor wantedHannah to be wearing bedclothes, however we challenge theconventions of most films as she is notwearing pyjamas but a more casualcombination which we felt would bemore realistic of the average teenager.By doing this we feel that our audiencewill be able to relate to the charactersbetter. Again as Hannah has beensleeping her hair is tussled and not beendone this is to create the ‘bed head’look.
GIRL TWO – NATALYA MARTINWe have decided to dress Natalya in apair of baby blue spotted cotton trousersalong with a white vest top. Again withinthe story the girls have been awoken bya noise coming from downstairs. Wetherefor wanted Natalya to be wearingbed clothes, however we challenge theconventions of most films as she is notwearing pyjamas but a more casualcombination which we felt would bemore realistic of the average teenager.Unlike Hannah, Natalya is seen to bewearing worn off make up which meetsour background story that the girls hadbeen to a party the night before. Againher hair has been tussled to look scruffy.
DEMON – HELENA MORAISWe have decided that for the demonwithin our film we did not want to used acloak or mysterious mask but create acharacter that looked more like a ghost.For costume we decided that a old nightdress would be suitable as the narrativeportrays the young girl at the beginning ofour film to be the demon that died manyyears ago. We modified the night dressmy tearing parts and using red foodcolouring to stain the garment. We alsoused white body paint to cover Helena tomake her look more mysterious finallyusing a range of paint and make up weadded scars and tussled the hair to givean affect of distress.
