I'm usually too cheap to buy custom-tailored clothing, but for movie purposes, you're often dealing
with clothing that isn't commercially available anyway, so you might as well have it made to fit. Right
now Darlene Cypser is working on putting together a historical action/drama/adventure and, once
again, I'm likely to end up wearing as many different outfits as the rest of the cast put together.
Which is why I ended up getting covered in duct tape...so when it was cut off, there'd be a full-scale
clothing dummy that more-or-less matched me. "More-or-less" because it ended up being a little
tight in the chest--next time you find yourself being covered in duct tape, be sure to breathe in and
hold most of that breath during the process. It'll be a better fit and more comfortable while you're
waiting to be cut out of it, too.
It's an interesting look, you must admit. With all of the live-action movies based on comic books
being made these days, maybe somebody's going to try doing a "Silver Surfer" movie. The duct
tape look might be just the thing...at least as long as I don't have to walk, bend my arms, or inhale.
I'd probably have to cut my hair, though.
