My friend and fellow fashionista Alicia Maye, created this amazing music video entitled Have a Cup of Tea. I asked Alicia to comment on her inspiration for the wonderful Zentai suits.
“I knew that I was going to be working in a low light environment because I was trying to recreate this woman’s internal prison. I wanted to use materials that would pick up as much light as possible so that I could create the impression of movement in the dark without giving away the creatures’ true form. The costume design was inspired in part by the many Noel Fielding characters in the Mighty Boosh who sport sparkly cat suits. I wanted it to be fun and glamorous, without undermining the overall menace. I wanted the costumes to emphasize the form and animalistic movement of the purple creatures.”
