Over the next few weeks we are profiling a few of the costumes used throughout the series’. From the way they’re made to why they were designed the way they were. This week is Danni’s Tribe 2 costume. Click any of the costume pictures for a larger view.
Passionate and full of purpose, Danni strives to make a better world. She is fiery and can be stubborn.
She is persistent and will never give up. But her determination to build a better future is driven by a secret from her past that she is hiding and hopes it will not be discovered.
This is the first costume Danni had on The Tribe. We first saw Danni when she held up a bow and arrow to Bray.
Her whole costume follows one colour which in itself is unusual in The Tribe – usually the brighter or more colourful the better.
Her first top is a very pale mauve colour. It is made of a stretch cotton poplin. It has a low neckline in a V and zips up the front – slightly more to the right that the middle – but the zip doesn’t go all the way to the bottom. There is a split at the bottom from where the zip ends to where the top ends.
The sleeves are full length and are slightly flared at each wrist. The top is fitted and has side seams which give it a tighter fitting. At the top of each arm there is an oblong hole cut in each arm.
Next Danni wears these white jeans. They are tight fitting and have a thin waistband. The pockets at the top have been sewn shut or perhaps they are just decoration and were never pockets to start with.
Half way up the thighs and down to below the knee the fronts of the legs have been cut large rectangle holes – each of which has had strips of the same fabric attached across them. It looks really good.
The bottoms of the pants are long and slightly flared. They are also gathered slightly just under the knee and there are four eyelets there which have straps threaded through them.
The back of the jeans don’t have too much detail but on the back just below the waist there are two extra flaps sewn into the seam with four eyelets on each side. These are threaded with black strapping.
Danni’s jacket is made of the same denim. It is quite a strange cut for a jacket. It is very short and is rounded at the bottom. It has a high neck line but no sort of collar. The sleeves aren’t very long and are probably only 3/4 sleeves. The front of the jacket hs been split into sections. The sections on either side have been diagonally sewn with stripes which the middle remains palin. The jacket does up with four pieces of velcro down the front. Each piece has been sewn so the stitching is visible on the outside matching the other dark stitching on the jacket.
The back of the jacket is te same with the two detailed panels on the outside and the plain one in the middle.
Unfortunately we couldn’t find any of Danni’s jewellery to go with this profile.
