Sci-Fi Fashions in Cinema! #WearableWednesday

These Victorian-turned-steampunk costumes come from NYC based artist Toni Dove and are featured in her interactive movie Lucid Possession. She created the movie during a residency at the HERE Arts Center, located around the corner from Adafruit!

The movie features kinetic sculptures, live musicians, and multiple screens and projections that interact in real time and play out a tech-noir mystery about a programmer, Bean, in the near and much more tech savvy future, who creates smart personalities for avatars online.

Toni Dove collaborated with designer Karen Young to create a look specific to each character and notes that she never changes their outfits “like graphic novel characters.”

I love the scenes of Bean wandering around Times Square at night in her lit-up skirt– the only way to make those giant billboards less distracting is to get lit up yourself!
