Bomb Girls: 40’s fashion brought back to Mainstream.

Bomb Girls: 40##Q##s fashion brought back to Mainstream.

Canadian productions do not often get the same attention as American or European ones do, they tend to be over looked at times for an action packed, explosion filled show with little story and all the budget spent on production values and not on the story itself. What I have always loved about shows conceived and produced in Canada is the attention to the story and characters while maintaining a realistic look to their production.Bomb Girls is a perfect example of how good Canadian made Movies, Mini Series and TV shows can be and how a well written and researched show doesn##Q##t need out of control budgets or guns and explosions to draw in viewers.##Q##Bomb Girls##Q## is a story revolving around 5 key characters in the Victory munitions factory during World War II and is a series that recounts the combined stories from the Ajax Dil plant and the Scarborough General Engineering Plant.An estimated 250,000 women worked in the factories during the war all while also raising their families and maintaing a home.

 

 

Bomb Girls costume designer Joanne Hansen has done an amazing job at capturing the different social back grounds of the characters and the fashion styles they represents. The wardrobe in this series helps put the viewer into this WW II era and as this is a character driven series, not built on special effects, wardrobe plays such an important role.The attention to detail when doing a period piece is what can make or break a production and when done right it can help set the tone as well as give the actors a valuable tool to work into the make up of their character. So I was not surprised when watching the first episode screener how much attention Joanne and her team put into the costumes worn by all the cast, not just the main characters.
