I was called in to work on Tuesday to do photo-doubling for Naomi Watts. For those of you who are not familiar with what that would entail, the idea is basically to make me look as similar to the actress as possible. For example, in the event that there wasn’t enough time to shoot wide shots of a scene or they need close up on hands or legs, they call me. While in hair/make-up truck, the only major change was the wig and the wild lipstick. As you can see in the pictures, Naomi’s costume was relatively simple; black skinny pants and a pink cashmere turtleneck. I’m not sure if I would ever wear these pieces in this combination because, quite honestly, it’s a little boring and banal – not an unusual way of describing the work of the wardrobe departments on set.
The weather in Toronto is quickly improving; most of the snow has melted and on Tuesday the temperature was about 13 C. Needless to say, I was thoroughly enjoying the sunshine and couldn’t get enough of the freedoms it allowed – mainly the choice of spending time in the fresh air….lol, what a luxury. Anyway, as I was soaking in this beautiful, spring feeling it was quickly crushed when I stepped into the studio. The set was dressed for winter…what irony :).
What I’m wearing:
- Skinny black pants by “J Brand”
- Cashmere turtleneck
- Simple long-sleeve undershirt
- Leather boots (the ones in the picture are mine; I changed back into them with every chance) (as seen in Nov. 23′09, Mar. 10’10)
