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!
Also in the shot is Yanic Truesdale, who we know as Michel.
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.
