Life-Size’s Costume Designer on Dressing Tyra and What Eve Would Wear Today
Shine bright, shine far, don’t be shy, be a star.
by Elana Fishman May 1, 2017, 11:02am EDT


Last week, Freeform announced that Life-Size 2, a sequel to the 2000 made-for-TV cult classic starring Tyra Banks as a stylish doll who becomes a human, had finally been greenlit. The news follows years of eager speculation from fans of the first film, and Banks will not only be reprising her role as Eve, but also executive-producing the project. According to Freeform, Life-Size 2 — which is set to debut in December 2018 — will be a “fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie” in which Eve is “magically awoken to help a young woman learn to live and love again.”

There’s no word yet as to whether Lindsay Lohan — who played Casey, the middle-schooler who brought Eve to life in the first movie — will portray Eve’s owner in the sequel, or whether she’ll even make a cameo. Casting news aside, of course, we’re most interested to see what Banks’s Eve — the chipper glamazon who skillfully juggles jobs as a secretary, doctor, and police officer — will wear this time around. Could it possibly measure up to her Chanel-esque tweeds and mermaid gowns from the original?

To find out, we hopped on the phone with Maya Mani, Life-Size’s costume designer. Though Mani won’t be working on the sequel, she had plenty to share about her time dressing Tyra, working with a teenage Lohan, and designing clothes for dolls and actors alike.

Exactly, because that’s the moment when she’s finally become “fully human,” as it were. In a strange way, it’s kind of like a little Pinocchio story.


In terms of research, did you draw on your own childhood experience playing with dolls?

Actually, I didn’t play with Barbie dolls growing up, so I didn’t have that reference. So I had to research it.

But you know, for Barbie’s 25th anniversary, there was a fashion show in Toronto that I did work on. All the models who were spray-tanned to look like Malibu Barbie, with blonde wigs. Of course, we weren’t designing the outfits, but rather taking doll outfits and reproducing them in a larger size, from the jewelry to the dresses.

Did you call in clothes for Eve’s wardrobe, or did you have to make everything yourself?

We built everything — well, most things. For the scene where Eve grows [into a human], for example, we knew that as she grows, the print she was wearing would have to grow. So we had to figure out a print that would look good both big and small, and then we found a place that could shrink that print for us.

There’s also a scene where she’s wearing a chenille bathrobe that was pink and had all this stuff on it— that was something we purchased. And some of her jewelry might’ve been vintage, actually.

The outfit I remember best might be the peach tweed suit she wears to her office job, which was clearly Chanel-inspired. That wasn’t actual Chanel, right?

That wouldn’t have been real Chanel — we didn’t have that kind of money! [Laughs]

It’s probably hard to choose, but which of Eve’s many looks was your favorite?

I loved her butterfly gown… and there was a fuchsia brocade suit with a crazy hat that was kind of fun. Oh, and we did this pink dress with matching pink oven mitts and apron — everything matched. I would say that was one of my favorites. All of Eve’s outfits matched, it was all very coordinated. I remember there’s a scene where she’s in a football stadium, and the lining of her coat even matches the lining of her umbrella!

I just remember having a good time designing all those clothes. Being able to design clothes for someone [like Banks] was a sheer joy.

What was the most challenging thing about working on Life-Size?

You know, originally, Barbie was a homemaker — and then soon she could do all these different jobs! She was an engineer, a doctor, a surfer. So we had to narrow it down to which looks we wanted to make [for the movie].

The script was constantly changing, also, which was challenging. I was trying to avoid having her go from a pink outfit in one scene to another pink outfit in the next. I like to change up the colors. There was definitely a penchant for pink on our set, so I was just trying to break all of that up.

Did you design the tiny doll outfits in addition to the looks for Tyra? Was that tricky?

I did! And, well, it was just everything in miniature, wasn’t it? [Laughs]

Were you shocked by how much people loved the movie? I feel like a lot of millennials out there still know all the words to “Be a Star”...

Really?! Wow — I didn’t know that. But yes, [I was shocked]. I mean, we were making a TV movie! But it was a lot of fun — that’s what I remember most about that shoot. We had a good time.

What do you think Eve would be wearing today? The same sparkly gowns and matching sets?

Oh, I hope not! I think she’d still have flair and a sense of fun about her. I don’t think she’d be as pop-y, though.

Like, would she be wearing an #ImStillWithHer pantsuit or something?

Oh my god, no, please. I mean, I’ll go on record to say that I like Hillary Clinton, but let’s not do that. Although, I mean... if anyone could rock a pantsuit, it’d be her.

Life-Size 2 will premiere on Freeform in December 2018.

So sad. Nicolas Cage worked with P Schrader after Canyons and had praise for her performance. Could've been great.

It’s time to start fining celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum and Lindsay Lohan, who plug products on social media without disclosing that they are paid endorsers, good government groups say.

“It’s time social-media influencers are held accountable for their actions,” Bonnie Patten, spokeswoman for Truth in Advertising told me.
“If some were fined, it would be a good deterrent. Right now, they are operating with impunity.”

The Federal Trade Commission recently sent letters out to 47 “influencers,” including J.Lo, Klum and Lohan, informing them of guidelines it published back in 2015, but the agency won’t even call these letters — sent “for educational purposes” — warnings.

Kristen Strader, a Public Citizen campaign coordinator, said, “They are not going to stop until there is some kind of consequence. These marketers and influencers have no reason to take these letters seriously.”

Lopez received a letter from the FTC after she posted a photo of herself in front of Beluga vodka bottles with the caption, “Birthday weekend in Vegas!! Thanks again @vodkabeluga #vodkabeluga.”

That phrasing, the FTC wrote, “does not sufficiently explain the nature of your relationship to the company; consumers could understand a ‘thank you’ simply to mean that you are a satisfied customer.”

“I think she got more than a bottle of vodka,” Strader said.

A guide the FTC published in 2015 says: “Starting a tweet with ‘Ad:’ or ‘#ad’ — which takes only 3 characters — would likely be effective.”

I've been doing research for an LL bio and her 2005 episode may be the finale with the highest ratings in recent years. (Correction, only 2011 with Justin Timberlake has her beat with 7.0 vs 6.2)

I hope she can still dance. It's been so long since she's done anything with major choreography
