It’s about passion for fashion. These are not all the costumes, but just a handful. Elizabeth’s wedding dress will be kept under wraps until the film is released. The same will go for the monster’s look and costume.
In the world of Frankenstein’s Monster (2013), Victor’s obsession over Prometheus’ Spark, causes him to dive into multiple sciences. It is in his laboratory and through his creation that we will see steampunk elements shine. Some steampunk elements will not as obvious as others. Expect wood, metal, a claustrophobic environment, bronze, steam, symbolism, and other sciences represented.
A contrasting world will be created compared to Victor and his laboratory. The outside world exists in American Southern forests and nearby estuaries. It gives a feeling of isolation that matches Mary Shelley’s impressions. Women’s costumes will lean either Southern or Western. Most dresses will be either pastels or neutrals. Lots of frills. Some dresses with hoop skirts. All of the costumes are 19th Century.
