To create a completely unique and immersive feel for Oz, director Sam Raimi employed two of Hollywood’s most respected creatives — costume designer Gary Jones and makeup artist Vivian Baker. Together the pair helped transform James Franco, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis and the rest of the cast for this highly-anticipated movie.
Both industry vets, Jones and Baker know a thing or two about using costumes and makeup to render some of Hollywood’s most-recognizable faces … well, unrecognizable for various roles. Jones has created the costumes for hit movies such as Spider-Man 2, Valentine’s Day and Georgia Rule, while Baker has handled makeup duties for Spider-Man 3 and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
From the inspiration to the costumes and the makeup, Jones and Baker give us a behind-the-scenes look at how they were able to bring the film’s characters to life in the video above.
Oz The Great and Powerful opens in theaters everywhere March 8th.
