If you watch Glee — and, duh, you do — you probably love the various costumes and outfits the New Directions members wear both on stage and off. Guess what? Industry people love them too!
Glee costumer Lou Eyrich was awarded the Costume Designers Guild award for contemporary series costuming at the guild ceremonies on Tuesday night.
Of her work on Glee, Eyrich dished to Your Industry Insider, “On Glee, we usually start at 6 AM. We have to make sure all the costumes for all the actors are in their trailers ready to go for when they come in at their call time. We work on dressing all the background actors and look at the day’s schedule: who we have fittings for, who works tomorrow. Do we have everything we need for fittings and what works tomorrow? Are all the alterations done? Do we have all the accessories we need: shoes, earrings, purses? Does the purse need to open to fit in a prop? Just all the things you have to think of. Do they have to dance in the shoes? If so, we have to make sure the shoes are appropriate for dancing.”
Other Costume Designers Guild award winners include Boardwalk Empire, The King’s Speech, and Black Swan.
