I'll have to rewatch the flashbacks honestly what they were wearing didn't even register

Pondering the question of the Brigadoom costumes, something occurred to me. The people were not Brunnen-G, they were actors playing Brunnen-G. So their costumes were just that, costumes. When Kai became part of the show, he transformed (visually, at least) into the Kai from the past. His clothes were more elaborate because they were really what he wore. The way he looked was an actual representation of Brunnen-G culture, while everyone else was a representation from a theatrical perspective. That's my new theory, anyway. :bigthink:

I go with the theory that they didn't have enough money or time to make more elaborate costumes as they did that episode in only like 8 days. Kai's rainbow suit was already made, and espensive at the time to make. Plus the star's costume is usually more elaborate than the supporting casts'.

I can believe it was expensive. I would have charged an arm and two legs if I had to sew all those different colors together!

I'd have needed therapy if I'd had to make that thing!

Definitely some hazard pay thrown in there. Either from blindness or the epileptic seizure all those colors may cause!

I'm going to weigh in on the side of color... It's fun, it's different, and joyful.

I don't mind color but there comes a point where too much is just too much.
Kind of like in the movie Amadeus when the king says that the ear can only hear so many notes, the eye can only see so many colors!

In the memory chamber, on the people's "slices" you can clearly tell the male from the female. I noticed on Kai's "slice" that there weren't any, um, dangly bits. A precursor to what we see in K-Town, perhaps? Hmmmm...  :bigthink:

And the rubber shackle thingies, the shoulder harness and belt, no one ever takes them off! Giggerotta is wearing them, the Heretics in IWHS were wearing them, and Zev even showers in them. Apparently, after they are no longer used to hold you down while you're being eviscerated for the protein bank, they become killer fashion accessories.  :c030a:  :xre_21:  :xevvy:

I have to agree I like to crazy use of colour in the BrunnenG clothing. That and hairstyles is another one of the things that hooked me in the first time I saw this - it's so unusual for the hero to be brightly coloured and have such an impractical hairstyle. (Man I wish my hair would stay in place like Kai's does!)
I wonder if they were initially thinking of Kai's outfit as the military uniform (the other fighters in the opening of I Worship His Shadow were wearing them too), and then after the backstory played out in Brigadoom realised they would have to find some other reason for Kai to be in such an elaborate outfit - and decided to make it the national costume of the BrunnenG.

I agree that the other singers in Brigadoom have plainer outfits because of budget and time etc. Not sure you're supposed to notice the difference to be honest.

On watching Supernova for the second time I noticed that Kai's gems have been ripped out of his suit - I assume by His Shadow - I wonder what happened to them?
