I've got an interview with Debra McGuire, the costume designer for the series cast, which will be conducted by e-mail. The deadline is the 1st of August. Please suggest your questions below. - Chrisyu357 12:17, 19 July 2008 (EDT)

  • Questions sent! Chrisyu357 11:39, 1 August 2008 (EDT)


  • Do you have to work on set too?
  • What is the most interesting piece you have designed for Heroes?
  • Among all of your work, both for Heroes and outside Heroes, what is the most challenging design you have encountered?
  • In the Season 1 finale, during the Peter vs. Sylar scene, Peter is wearing white and Sylar is wearing black. Is this intentional?
  • For Heroes, who has given you the most instruction on which kind of clothes they want the character to wear? Do you receive instruction from the director, writer (script), and from Stargate Digital?
  • How do you design or pick clothes for the characters? Does it normally reflect more their personality, ability, etc., or the scene at hand?
  • Did you design all Claire's cheerleader outfits? I think they look just like the real thing!--Skywalkerrbf 08:23, 21 July 2008 (EDT)
  • Where do most of the clothes that appear on Heroes get made? On average, how long do you normally have to select designs for a scene?
  • When working on the clothing to be used with the Heroes abilities/special effects, are you allotted extra time to develop designs? When the clothing becomes a kind of prop, do you participate in any training with the cast?
  • You are credited as being a costume consultant for the television series Judging Amy. Was that different from your later jobs as a designer; and if yes, how so?
  • What has happened to the used clothing designs from your previous series and films? Do you keep any in storage in case of a future sequel? Have many actors/actresses purchased or (to say it politely) borrowed your costume designs off the set?
  • Are there any fashion designers that have inspired your work on Heroes? Do you have any favorite fashion designers (other than yourself)?
  • Do you usually showcase your Home Shopping Network/HSE designs for jewelry/handbags often end up on the shows you design for, or vice versa?


Good job on the interview! Who is "Chrisyudbs"? I don't get the "dbs" part... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:50, 13 August 2008 (EDT)

  • I think it's his username on 9th Wonders or something, I recall seeing something about it on his userpage. Maybe he got confused between the two, or just prefers the other one? -- Friskymuffin - (talk) 13:49, 13 August 2008 (EDT)
