Bahubali’s Royal Look and Costumes
The designers made sure that the colors reflected the characters. We present to you a little peak to the costumes of each character in the movie.
Prabhas has always had a chocolate boy image when it comes to most of his roles but with Bahubali, his acting career has taken a leap to another level. The look of Prabhas’ character is subtle and so the colors were kept restrained with less gold included. The designers made sure that the colors reflected the characters.
Rana Daggubati plays the antagonist in the movie, Bhallala Dev and he does look every bit of his character. This character is supposed to be a little chunky and hence more colors and gold jewelry were included in his outfits. The designers took special care in making the armors and opted for an innovative technique that comforts the actors during their sequences.
The armors were made from leather fabric and later were painted with metallic paint that gave it the amazing natural gaze. Exceptional craftsmen constructed the arm bands, headgear and the footwear for the duo. It is also noteworthy that the costumes in the war sequences were designed by Rama Rajamouli and art director Sabu Cyril.
