superhero– The wardrobe team consists of designers, pattern makers, seamstresses, and wardrobe representatives on set to ensure the costumes are fitted and sitting appropriately for all scenes.– Their task was to create unique ‘looks’ for several superheroes and villains and a range of weird, classy and eccentric characters. Commander Vermont, while adopting a military/combat style, was also dressed in flowery camouflage uniform. Octavia was always immaculately dressed, usually in purple, while Violet had bright-coloured wigs and weird but classy costumes. Josh Montana adopted the all American college hero image, while his alter-ego, Silver Lining the Superhero, sported a tight lycra pink full suit complete with matching fluffy G string and pink cape. Sabrina was cast as the sultry sex kitten of the show and was always seen in tight and short hot pink outfits with matching accessories such as hot pink fingernails and high hot pink shoes.

– The Aliens’ costumes included a specially adapted tail that poked through the back of the spaceship seat. They also had webbed feet and reptile-like skin costumes.

wardrobeAll costumes were crucial in identifying the characters. Colour was a huge aspect when designing costumes and some characters wore colours that identified their personalities:

-Octavia – Purple
-Jet – Blue
-Sabrina – Hot pink
-Josh (Silver Lining superhero) – Hot pink-Anthony/Antonia – Turquoise/Red

-Violet – wigs
-Beanie – Blue

-The specialist costumes were created in-house with ‘tacky and spoofy’ accessories added for special effect, while other more plain and unadorned garments were purchased through local stores.
