Hello! Melissa Meister here with my first Fatlace Blog. I am excited to finally be able to share all of my awesome life experiences, as I have had many and plan on many more. My life is in the entertainment world. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to style Dylan and Cole Sprouse for a Pokeman commercial in Malibu California. A tough day for tough pay!
As the Costumer Designer, my job is to create the look the client, Nintendo, is looking for. I receive direction from the Ad agency, and then create my own interpretation of their ideas. I can’t say I won the creative battle here, as I would have done something a bit different. Anyway, here we are on set establishing the first look. Once the camera rolls, I am technically no longer needed on set. My costume team takes over to keep the look “working”. Lilia – you did a great job!
This is “set”. Backyard Productions found this amazing house through their location manager and we rented it for the day. I did not go in the pool. By end of day, Malibu was back to it usual shitty weather.
Just a different point of view. The extras had a great day until the directer, Bo Mirosseni, had them in the pool for 2 hours straight. Being an extra is a gig I never had to do. It seems like tough work to get a SAG card.
A little green screen action for some web stills. I love the animation. The Sprouse brothers shorts are from Val Surf (their favorite) and T-shirts are from American Apparel (one of my favorites).
I styled everyone around the girl in the yellow bikini. I was NOT going to changer her outfit. When I found out Leo Burnett wanted Cole Sprouse in the yellow T – I worried the bikini might not work, but I think everyone else liked it as much as I did. Young and hot in Malibu.
