'A Series of Unfortunate Events' Costume Designer Dishes on Baudelaire's Fashion in Season 2

We hate to call attention to the orphans of A Series of Unfortunate Events (ugh), but we just can’t take our eyes off of this new season’s fashion.

We’re joking though – because we love the Baudelaires, and even more, Malina Weissman‘s style in the Netflix show.

Costume designer Cynthia Summers spoke with Syfy Wire about dressing Malina as Violet for this season and how it changed from the first season.

“Our biggest issue with the kids for Season 2 was what to do with them because in the books they don’t age; of course we’re dealing with live people and children who age right before your eyes,” she shared. “We try to keep them youthful.”

Cynthia adds that there were specific looks they wanted to create.

“We masterminded how they could change along the way, which gave us some range in how we could dress them for the occasion. Clearly at Ersatz Elevator, Esmé has dressed them in their pinstripe suits identically as if they were triplets,” she shares.

“Putting a little pinstripe suit on a toddler is the most adorable thing in the world and also a pinstripe suit on Malina is great because it is very hip for a girl to wear a boy’s suit.”

It’s actually one of our fave looks!

Cynthia continues, “It brought a little more connectivity and youthfulness in the way they dress. Connectivity with the audience, which is also why we have this non-determinate range of period and even the dialogue they refer to the internet sometimes, refer to things that are clearly modern. That’s intentional to try and keep the young audience engaged.”

A Series of Unfortunate Events is streaming now on Netflix.

    Wasn’t succesful. If anything, Malina’s outfits made her very feminine features more prominent. :D
