The backstory 👉
John Glaser is the costume designer for #Gothamtv
series. During an episode in 2017, the Penguin had to go to the Tundra. I was prepping tattoo drawings for @greatestshowman.
We were in neighboring spaces in the vast Steiner Studios in Brooklyn, where multiple stages are used to film feature films and episodic television. When I ran into John I mentioned my, new at the time, project of transforming furs belonging to people who wanted to keep and see them in a very new light and incarnation. John said that he would call me, and he did.
I was given 2 raccoon coats to transform for the scene. Although Penguin is a male actor, it works as well on this model Brooke Vahos. A vision of a hat came to me and John said, “ yes, yes, yes.” With some left over fur I also produced a jacket, which he did not have a use for. The jacket has a reversible collar. It was later photographed by #DonnaDeMari
and worn by #LouiseMarieAlbert
