Costume Concepts for ‘Evasion’

Another Monday, another post! I’ll be showing you some costume concepts that I’ve been working on.

What we want for the film is a guerrilla-style uniform rather then a military/special-ops look. I did some searching on the Internet but couldn’t find the look I wanted. I knew what items I had, so designing the costume was fairly easy. My process for designing is to think about it in my head for a long time; by the time I try it on, I usually don’t need to change much.

I had some camo pants and an olive green, long sleeve shirt for the base, then added a tactical vest, gloves, hat, and guns (of course 🙂 ).

This is what I have so far:

I’ve always liked the look of weapons carried on the back (be it guns, bows, or swords) so I added a machete; I’m planning on incorporating it in the film. Mom and Dad gave it to me for my birthday a long time ago and I use it for yard work (time to repurpose it 😀 ).

And here are some pictures we took a while ago when it was snowing. I was trying a different kind of boot I had, but I’ve decided not to use them.

I came up with a bad guy ‘minion’ costume. Since we have a limited number of actors, a lot of the minions will need to wear masks so we can play multiple characters.

I think the jacket is a little too short, but other than that I really like this one.




Micah came up with this minion costume.

Also, Micah came up with the look for the film (just kidding 😛 ).


That’s all for today folks! Please let me know what you think of the costumes. Also, let me know if you want me to go into more detail on a certain area.
