Melissa McCarthy on the Set of Gilmore Girls

Share

Costume designer Brenda Maben has been giving us a variety of behind-the-scenes looks at the filming of Gilmore Girls, including the long aisles of clothes for the revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, as well fun behind-the-scenes moments with others in the costume department. Brenda is listed as costume supervisor for 63 episodes of Gilmore Girls, and so has a long-standing relationship with many of the cast members. 

Brenda shares with us this great new behind-the-scenes look at Melissa McCarthy returning as Sookie for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, complete with her Sookie-trademark bandana and a wrap-style shirt! As you can see in the photo above, I compare the look to a ‘classic’ Sookie wrap shirt – so similar!

Brenda also shares a shot of Matt Czuchry in the costume department:

If you look closely, you can see some name tags in the racks, showing the clothes per character.

    It’s not just a wrap shirt–it’s a super awesome chef jacket! I always loved that they gave Sookie those amazing chef jackets, rather than just dressing her in whites. Definitely fit her personality.

      Yes, of course! I just didn’t know what to call it!
