In Which the IDC Studio Team Marvels at Legion

Nine or so weeks ago, we had a busy afternoon unpacking crates:

iandrummondcollection We know what our afternoon entails… and all next week. We marvel at the legion of ECrates that just returned from a Vancouver production. We’ll X the items off our packing lists, then perform any collection maintenance as needed. Then it’s time to use our put-away powers – alas, it’s all manual, not by telekinesis.

Do you see what we did there?

Now it’s all been made clear – Legion is “the Most Intricate, Intimate Superhero Story To Date.”

We’ve read that Legion is a masterpiece, and of course our minds immediately go straight to costuming and think, “How could it not be?” with Carol Case at the helm of Legion’s costume department – we had the pleasure to help her with Fargo.  As Ian always says, costuming is “How to tell a story without shouting” and we know that she is excellent in that respect.

We spied a pair of our shoes right away, in the “visually astounding” kitchen scene…

And we spied one of our favourite little kid tees here:

And we can’t help but wonder what story those arresting colours and bold choices are going to help to tell – but we are assured it’s going to be weird and wonderful.

As our heroes Tom and Lorenzo call it:
FX’s “Legion” is the Most Meticulous Chaos You Ever Saw

We’re glad to have helped, by having some of what it took, to create that impression.  Well-done, everyone on the Legion crew!
