Luc Besson’s movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, is due for release in South Africa in July 2017, and now everyone has the opportunity to design and submit a costume design that will be considered for the actual wardrobe selection for one scene in the film.
Entrants are asked to create a piece that could be worn by a human, alien, humanoid or any other intergalactic creature one can think of. The scene for which entrants are designing will take place at a political cocktail party inside a space station called Alpha and the year is 2580. Entrants are encouraged to get inspired by reading more about the costume specifications and film here.
Up to 20 costume designers will be selected by filmmaker Luc Besson, editor in chief
of Yahoo Style Joe Zee and Valerian costume designer Olivier Beriot to
receive US$1000 each, and potentially have their work created and worn by actors in the film. Deadline for submissions is on 27 November 2015.
