Loki Costume Designer Christine Wada Opens Up About Customizing Sylvie's Costume For Breastfeeding
Loki is coming to an end on Disney+ next week and there's been so much to enjoy about the latest Marvel series. In addition to the killer cast, including MCU newcomer Sophia Di Martino as the Loki Variant Sylvie, the show also has tons of eye-catching costumes. Recently, Di Martino took to Instagram to reveal that her costume was specially designed in order to make breastfeeding her new baby easier. ComicBook.com recently had the chance to chat with the show's costume designer, Christine Wada, and we asked her what inspired her to create the outfit and whether she thinks that sort of design should become the norm in Hollywood.
"Well, I think it should be a normal thing. I think it should be a normal thing in life. I think that we should all be looking out for each other and to be successful humans and high-functioning humans," Wada explained. "For me, that was a very organic part of the process because in order for your costume to be successful, you need your actor to work it successfully. So, it's all part of that process, and also just it's a very vulnerable time for a mother as you want it to be as seamless, not to be a pun here [laughs], but as seamless as possible and for them to just elevate their craft."
In Di Martino's original post, she wrote, "It's not easy being a working Mama! Genius #ChristineWada designed Sylvie's costume & added concealed zippers so I could pump easily & nurse my baby between takes. Little (big) things like this that made it possible for me to do my job & be a parent. I'm forever grateful." You can check out a photo of the costume in the post below:
