BTS Team Appreciation #1: Lights, Camera, Costume, Set Design, Hair and Makeup

No spoilers are allowed on this thread. So discussion is limited to the sets, costumes and other production choices on episodes that have already aired. Speculation on possible future sets or suggestions are allowed, but photos from production staff and crew are considered spoilers until the episodes air.

Here's an article discussing the Mayor's office.
OUAT's Mayor Set Design

Quote:
"The first time you see the Mayor’s Office on Once Upon a Time, you understand how perfectly it suits the character of Regina Mills (Lana Parrilla) aka The Evil Queen. It’s cold and unfeeling, just like her! Brrr. Set Director Mark Lane created this particular space, so kudos to him on translating these feelings so well."

Costume Designer Eduardo Castro nomintaed for design work on OUAT http://www.hollywoodtoday.net/2012/0...rough-october/

Quote:
''The great thing about fantasy is that there is no real playbook for it; it's not like a police procedural,'' says the show's production designer, Michael Joy. ''Anytime you can force the viewer into a dreamscape where things don't really make sense or fit together, it helps sell fairy-tale land.''
For Once costume designer Eduardo Castro, the journey from imagination to completion usually involves a race against the clock. ''It's always the challenge of time. The writers have an idea, but it doesn't gel until a certain point,'' says Castro, who, even under the most desirable of circumstances, has about two weeks to sketch and construct the costumes for a new episode (though often the time frame is more like five days).

The Mayor's Office really is a beautiful set, and reminds me of three of my favorite sets from BtVS and ANGEL: Mayor Richard Wilkins' Office (BtVS, Season 3), the Hyperion Hotel (ANGEL Seasons 2, 3, and 4), and the Wolfram and Hart Law Offices (ANGEL Seasons 1-5).

The W&H Law Offices have a similar emotional aesthetic to Regina's Office, at least IMO, which helps in connecting the audience to the characters with which they're directly associated.

I also really like the costuming for the franchise, with my favorite outfits being Snow's 'bandit furs ensemble, the Jabberwocky's fur-leather and-leather 'coat-suit-dress', Emma's 'Sheriff's ensemble', and Rumple's 'Dark One' leathers.

Thanks for the new thread!

I love the costumes on OUAT especially, I have to say. They've had some really gorgeous costumes, FTL ones in particular.

The details on this dress is extraordinary. And I still can't tell the color of the dress. Every screen shows a slightly different coloring - pale green, pale blue, even cream!

Agree on both plus the turnaround time is extraordinary. This is clearly not a 9-5 job! The work day is done when the dress is finished. Would love to read an interview with the staff and more BTS photos of them at work.

Regina's outfits amaze me the most. Some of them look painted on!

As intricate and beautiful as Regina's Evil Queen outfits are, I personally love the designs, cut, color, and fit of her suits and other practical Storybrooke outfits more. They're really extraordinarily selected, designed, and fit and, like her Office, really do fit who she is as a character.

Can't help it. I can live vicariously through the show and it's amazing leather.
I would never wear it myself.. you know chafing and all..

And Rumple looks like a rock star romping around in the EF in his leather
