The costume design proposal intends to work with ideas like surrealism, colour contrast, stereotypes and playfulness in order to create a world where logic doesn’t always makes sense.
The characters live in a timeless space or dream where silhouettes across the 20th century coexist. The idea of playfulness is presented in the use of a single colour for each one of the characters in its different shades to help create moods and visual contrasts when interacting with each other.
