The Day The Workshop Grew (Part I)

First of all I must deeply apologies for the lack of entries, This year I am proud to say has been our busiest year thus far. As Siam Costumes continues to expand overseas from the Cinema, T.v., Stage, Amusement parks and cruise line’s.

Of course as our clientele expands so does the Siam Costumes Family and Workshop…

From the Horror’s of Love to the Horror’s of war

For the last month Siam Costumes have been creating the garb for the likes of witches, wizards and ghosts and other spine chilling character’s clobbers that have been hovering around the workshop.


However for most people halloween is over and done with but for Siam Costumes the mother of all halloween’s is only about to begin





Thats right Guillermo Del Toro is already starting his next feature film, this time he is venturing into the world of the unknown with highly anticipated Gothic Romantic Horror “Crimson Peak”. Which is about a young author Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska: Alice in Wonderland) discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be.


Starring Charlie Hunnam who was the leading actor in Del Toro’s recent blockbuster Pacific Rim. Could this be the start of a partnership in the veins of Tim burton and Johnny Depp or Martin Scorsese and Leonardo Di Caprio? Its not just the director and leading actor who are teaming up for the second time in a row, the renowned costume designer Kate Hawley who also worked on Pacific Rim will be working with Del Toro once again.


We cant give away too much just yet, as its early days however, I can say that at the beginning of October Siam Costumes were contacted by “The Crimson Peak production”, and have been asked to make at least 3 of the leading cast members costumes.






2014 will witness the centenary since the outbreak of WW1 and subsequently there has been a flurry of films and TV productions commiserating around this very dark time. The consequences of these events still haunt us to this day.


 so its no wonder why new zealand born and australian raised oscar winning  Russell Crowe has decided to choose the Gallipoli Campaign for his directorial debut as well as playing the leading role with “The water Diviner”.


Although the story line at the moment is rather scant unless your in the known, so far from we have been told the film is to be filmed in both Australia and Turkey. The story is centered around Australian father who travels to Turkey just after the battle of Gallipoli as he tries to locate his three missing sons.


Siam Costumes have been commissioned to make uniforms for the Turkish Soldiers. 

 

Although Siam Costumes have made uniforms for the WW2 American “saving private Ryan”, Japanese “The Railwayman”  and  Nazi “Inglorious Basterds” military soldiers on previous movie productions . The Turkish WW1 soldiers will be somewhat new to the workshop.
