Meet The Department Heads: Costume Designer Audrey Fisher

Michelle Forbes dressed as the Maenad

What you’ve been up to this week:

Knee deep in fabulous costume research for Season 5! I’m getting up to speed on what’s in all the stores, making contact with all the companies that we work with, and getting in touch with the actors. But most importantly I’m prepping for a costume meeting with Alan to talk about the look of the season and get his take any exciting new characters and flashback or historical scenes with lots of costumes… That meeting provides the backbone for the start of my season in terms of costumes, and I can use all the information I get from him to move forward with all my designs.

Weirdest thing you’ve had to do for True Blood:

Feed an actress a sandwich! When Michelle Forbes was the Maenad Bride during the climax of Season 2, she was wearing her giant 3 fingered claw hands and this giant 1940s bridal gown and floral headpiece, and the poor dear was so hungry but couldn’t hold her own sandwich… so I fed her. It was very intimate.

    What a marvelous job she has … the costumes are such an integral part of each episode. From opulent to ragged, they help flesh out the characters and tell the True Blood story. Kudos to Ms. Fisher. She does a fantastic job. Thanks for providing, Lynn.
