The 8-ball

The 8-ball, a Finnish movie directed by Aku Louhimies and based on Marko Kilpi's novel, had its world premier in february 2013 in Kuopio where it was also partially filmed. For the premier I designed one ushers and five usherettes' uniforms. I wanted the costumes to embody the glamorous side of going to the cinema the way it was in the first half of the 20th century. The costumes really lifted the spirit of the party and were much liked.
