PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS
Dressed for the Quest
Academy Award-nominated costume designer Monique Prudhomme ("The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus") says that life at Camp Half-Blood is "one of jeans and T shirts. It's a life in sync with nature." She notes that the costumes reflect the gods' immortality -- as that they live in the contemporary world. The armor and protection is inspired by paintball, BMX and skateboarding.
Prudhomme also dressed some mythical creatures and monsters. "It was challenging, and we had to work with the people who create the mechanics of the monsters and make sure it all worked together," she explains. In all, Prudhomme and her team had to provide some 2,000 costumes for characters ranging from demigod campers at Camp Half-Blood, the taxi-driving Gray Sisters, Cyclops, hordes of monsters, Confederate soldier zombies, and an array of gods and heroes.
