His Dark Materials Costume Team Is Making Scrubs For NHS Workers
Another pebble in the pond that creates the ripple of donations
Globally acclaimed personalities, as well as, creative teams are expressing their love and concerns via generous acts and donations for COVID-19 sufferers and the same is true for His Dark Materials costume designers who are on a mission to produce scrubs for NHS workers. The costume department from the BBC TV show His Dark Materials are making scrubs for NHS staff. For this, the designers have already extracted the right material and the whole team has raised over £6,000 for purchasing it.
His Dark Materials Costume Designers Producing scrubs for NHS Workers
The Philip Pullman adaptation series has a dedicated costume crew who came up with some very useful ideas to help the healthcare workers. The staff thus set up Helping Dress Medics and has now attracted more designers around the UK.
The designers are not only crafting plastic face shields but also making scrubs for NHS staff. To create the face shields, the staff used 3D printers which have created alethiometer – the popular golden compass. Furthermore, the creative team has made or still making about 6,500 scrubs.
His Dark Materials Or Helping Dress Medics
Moreover, costume supervisor Dulcie Scott along with the team members who are currently working from home created a group and pick an alternative for the acronym HDM, (used for the show His Dark Materials), to Helping Dress Medics.
Costume designer Caroline McCall told BBC News how the idea strikes her mind. She was discussing their working plans during and after the pandemic season with the show’s costume supervisor Dulcie Scott
The Generous Idea
“When we realized there was a lack of PPE [personal protective equipment], and specifically scrubs, Dulcie contacted health professionals local to her to find out if and how we could help.”
As a matter of fact, His Dark Material’s Concept artist Michael van Kesteren has devised 50 personal protective equipment. The staff at Cardiff’s University Hospital of Wales are using the equipment. Good thing is that, the Staff at the Marie Curie Hospice in Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan and Newport’s Royal Gwent Hospital have already received their scrubs.
His Dark Materials
Dafne Keen and Ruth Wilson starrer fantasy drama His Dark Materials is an adaption. The novel series of the same name by Philip Pullman now becomes a fantasy series.
