When developing the hit movie Interstellar director Christopher Nolan worked hard to make the film look realistic. "We didn’t want to stray too far from established reality of what’s required for the environment of outer space,” Nolan said. “So, we tried to keep it recognizable as belonging to an astronaut of the 20th century because we wanted to tap into that history. We wanted to always be seeing a classic astronaut figure, not what they might look like in some undetermined future.”
Costume designer Mary Zophres said, “Chris has a great eye and was very precise about what he was looking for, but we only had 12 weeks to go from sketch to finished suit, so it was pedal to the metal the whole time. We built all of our suits from scratch, and pretty much on a daily basis, we’d have new details for Chris to take a look at. I’ve done some specialty costumes, but this was a whole new avenue of design.”
One of the skilled artists that helped develop the look of the suits in Interstellar was Romek Delimata who's a professional concept artist who's worked on blockbuster films like Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Flight of the Phoenix (2004) and Behind Enemy Lines (2001)
