|Beth, testing out the size of our hat flame|
In styling for this video, I didn't do a ton with Carl. He has a great body, so we just put him in a fitted henley, his fishing outfit. And then the suit just needed to fit well also. And since Justin is a country boy, snap-buttons were pretty much the only choice. The thing that I labored INTENSELY over--I mean, 20 straight hours with the help of one of my assistants, Beth--were the pit crew uniforms. They got a sweet 5 seconds of glory, but how good do they look? I would pretty much call myself an expert at cutting out swimsuit fabric now (the flames on the legs and back.) And thank goodness I'm married to a graphic designer too. Matt made me some awesome fake logos to jazz up those coveralls. The take home message here is that with a trip to JoAnn and some excellent hired help, you can pretty much make anything. Enjoy this very hilarious video (which you will super-enjoy if you're also a NASCAR fan) and some behind-the-scenes photos below.
