‘SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW’ IS FULL OF SUPERPOWERED FASHION

Sure, “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” is a Marvel superhero series that follows the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) – Bruce Banner’s cousin, Jen Walters (Tatiana Maslany), after he accidentally gives it to Bruce Banner. her own green replacement car- the ego in the aftermath of a car accident. As a woman, she is trained to manage her rage and inner emotions on a daily basis. So she becomes a reluctant superhero – and her “She-Hulk” character becomes public information.
There are crazy super-appropriate revelations, non-stop MCU Easter eggs, and unexpected cameos, like the (real) Megan Thee Stallion squirming in pink Balmain, Wong (Benedict Wong) weeping with “This Is Us” and Matt Murdock / Daredevil (Charlie Cox) morning walk after walk. But the fourth wall-to-wall comedy, created and written by Jessica Gao, is also an action-adventure through a fashion-focused lens, thanks to costume designer Ann Foley.
Foley knows a thing or two about super magic: She’s worked on “Agents of Shield,” Marvel’s “Altered Carbon,” and the upcoming “Masters of the Universe.” Before that, the series’ costume designer will look back at “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” fashion moments and share behind-the-scenes insights about the best-dressed superhero on the small screen.
On instructions from her new boss at GLH&K, a reputable superhero-focused law firm, Jen needs to face clients (and colleagues) in She-Hulk mode. But finding the right fit was a challenge, until Luke Jacobson designed her a high-tech dress that instantly adjusted to the perfect fit from Jen to She-Hulk and back.
“I wanted it to be purple, like the color scheme in the comics,” says Foley, adding that she also wants it drawn from “high fashion designers like Alexander McQueen –” just the Beautifully tailored pieces show that they were made by Luke Jacobson, our in-house Edna Mode. “(Imogene Chayes drew concept art for the suit.)
Behind the scenes, designing the Jen-to-She-Hulk wardrobe required a team of artisans, starting with Marvel Head of Visual Development Ryan Meinerding, who designed the height and muscular physique. by She-Hulk. Then, 6-foot-5-year-old actor Malia Arrayah joined as an on-set reference for Jen’s much-discussed, enhanced CG transformation into She-Hulk; Foley worked with Arrayah and a body created from the actor’s face to “calculate” exactly that accurately depicts Jen’s wardrobe aspect growing up She-Hulk.
The diamond-tone business dress also serves as a trailer for the supersuit’s big reveal, drawn by concept artist Jackson Sze.
The She-Hulk (literally) jumped onto the scene in a purple and white sports wrestling oneie silhouette and a high top in a rather heated battle with Daredevil. Future armor-like plates are printed with special “iridescent ink” coated with foil to create 3D-like depth. Foley’s team – which includes costume production director and cutter Marilyn Madsen – actually hand-stitched each stretch knit onto the supersuit.
“[The Suit] felt like the character, and it also felt empowered,” says Foley. “That’s one of the great things about the show: There’s so many mean women [participating], from the director to [executive producer] Wendy Jacobson and even our cast. one of the things that was so inspiring about working on the show was being surrounded by all these really great, amazing women and being told this exciting story.”
There’s also the Jen/She-Hulk evening gown, of course, which has its own backstory for several episodes, starting with Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) and top lawyer Pug (Josh Seggara)’s quest to maintain maintains the services of the ultra-exclusive tailor for superheroes, Luke Jacobson (Griffin Matthews). With her gorgeous butterfly waves blowing in the wind, Jen debuted the dress as she stepped on the carpet at the gala to celebrate her win for “Female Lawyer of the Year”. Alas, Jen and her designer dress go viral for other reasons in the penultimate episode.
Behind the scenes, Foley found her own sought-after personal designer through the episode’s director, Kat Coiro, who wanted something extra special for Jen’s big reveal.
“[Coiro] had a relationship with Zuhair Murad from one of her previous gigs, so we contacted each other and he happily took on this amazing task to design a shirt. cover the She-Hulk,” she said.
