Exclusive Interview with Whedonverse Costume Designer Shawna Trpcic

All Whedonverse shows have their trademark clothing. Whether it be Jayne's infamous hat, Dr. Horrible's lab coat or Illyria's form after taking over Fred's body, the outfitting in our favorite shows help shape the personalities and create visual icons of each beloved character. Shawna Trpcic is the fabulous designer responsible for not only those items mentioned, but many more costumes in the Whedonverse.

Shawna was nice enough to meet with us right before her SDCC panel Costume Designers: Designing for TV Production on Friday morning at the Hilton Gaslamp, directly across from the San Diego Convention Center. Check out our interview below where we talk about all things Whedonverse style. For us, this was one of the highlights of the now historic SDCC 2010, where Whedonites and Joss himself ruled the weekend. Enjoy!

A big thanks to Shawna Trpcic for taking the time out of her busy Comic Con schedule to talk to us!

Really fun interview! I had no idea that Dr. Horrible's lab coat was the same one worn by Simon on Firefly, and Alien Resurrection! I also loved the comment about fitting Miracle.
