DO the graphic novel thing or comic book and there is just something that looks impossible? Bring that instead and make sure you pre bookmark 2-4 pages that show the costume the most. We have years experience trying to interpret artist renderings and director/Props head descriptions to produce what they are after. Allow us to make some suggestions that may clear your head a little. Due to limit in time we will ask you to sign in when you arrive. First come, first looked at.
