a film adaption of the novel by marissa meyer

Heartless is a novel which serves as an origin story for the Queen of Hearts. My concept focused on an upside down/inside out aesthetic, with x ray prints and see through elements. Loosely inspired by late 19th century clothing, but with contemporary elements. I also used motifs from playing cards and chess pieces to distinguish the two kingdoms from the book.

Hatta - The Mad Hatter
Jest - The Court Jester from the Land of Chess
Lady Catherine Pinkerton - Before She Became the Queen of Hearts

Following my degree hand-in, I chose to make a third costume with fabrics I owned, this time it is Elsie, one of the sisters at the bottom of the Treacle well, who dresses up as a frog.
