Watchmen Costumes

One Year to Midnight reveals (some of) the official Watchmen movie costumes.  I like the one above, and I absolutely detest all the rest of them, so I won’t show them here.

Once more, they have fallen in the trap of unnecessarily griming and grittying up the costumes.  Part of the appeal of Dave Gibbons’ art was the limited amount of colors, mimicking the limited printing possibilities of typical pulp comics of the fifties and sixties.  this is all gone now : Watchmen has been sexed up, and I don’t like it.

As in the book, only Rorschach is true to his cause…
