Costume designers Gary Jones and Michael Kutsche designed, created and assembled nearly 2,000 costumes for “Oz The Great and Powerful.” Working on all sorts of characters from Witches to Munchkins to Quadlings and Tinkers, the two costume designers came up with special looks for all the fascinating and unique inhabitants of the Land of Oz. But industry veteran Gary Jones is not a stranger to the costume demands of big films. He reunited with director Sam Raimi for “Oz The Great and Powerful,” after having designed the wardrobe for Raimi’s “Spider-Man 2.” In addition to his continuing association with Raimi, Jones has enjoyed collaborations with such distinguished filmmakers as Garry Marshall (seven films, including “Valentine's Day” “New Year’s Eve,” ”The Other Sister,” “The Princess Diaries,” ”The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement,” ”Raising Helen” and “Georgia Rule”), Brian De Palma (“Dressed to Kill”), Louis Malle (“Vanya on 42nd Street”), Sidney Lumet (“Guilty As Sin,” “A Stranger Among Us”), Peter Weir (“The Mosquito Coast”) and Alan J. Pakula (“Consenting Adults”).
Costume and character designer Michael Kutsche is an award-winning German artist who works both in traditional and digital media. Kutsche’s unique approach to imaginative character creation led him to become a character designer for Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” his first movie experience. Kutsche has since designed characters for Disney’s “John Carter,” directed by Andrew Stanton, and “Thor,” directed by Kenneth Branagh, as well as “Robopocalypse,” directed by Steven Spielberg.
