Costume Change…

In our original film opening, Emelia and I made a silly mistake when filming. We had Rosie wearing a dress because we wanted to target the stereotypes; however, our first shot includes Rosie waking up and so it did not make sense for Rosie to be waking up already fully dressed! Because of this, we decided to change what Rosie would be wearing in the film opening. Because the film opening is based in the morning, we thought that it would make most sense for Rosie to wake up in her pyjamas.We also wanted to keep it childish and innocent as this makes the ending to the opening even more shocking. At first, we wanted Rosie to wear pink, fluffy pyjamas in attempt to stick to certain stereotypes. However, we didn’t want our film to seem too cliché and so let Rosie pick her favourite pyjamas as this would make her feel more comfortable which we hoped would come across in her acting! The pyjamas that Rosie chose was in fact a onesie. Although this was not what we had initially expected, we were happy with her choice as the onesie actually made her look younger. It is also very common for young children to wear onesies as pyjamas and so we supported her idea. The onesie is blue with snowflakes all over it. This links directly to our colour scheme and the aimed warmth of the film opening! When coming over to film, Rosie had forgotten her Wellington Boots. Luckily, I have some pink/red ones that actually fit her. The pink boots allow us to include the stereotypes that we were previously going to include with the pyjamas. I am happy with how her outfit fits together…


In our original film, Rosie’s hair stayed in the two pigtails throughout; this helped the continuity of the opening as her hair remained in one position and so we decided to do this again. Rosie also remembered to bring the two purple ribbons and so I tied these in two bows in her hair. The ribbon highlights her innocence which allows the ending to seem even more shocking! We are happy with the costume and hair for Rosie’s character as it adds naïvety and innocence which clashes with the ending; therefore making the audience feel on edge and uncomfortable.
