voyager contact
These costume design sketches from Contact depict the evolution of the "pod suit" and other equipment used by Ellie Arroway (Jodie Foster) in the film. These explorations do not necessarily reflect the final costumes. The suit is inspired by drawings of Joan of Arc; the sketches reflect an attention to practical details and function, while also conveying a sense of femininity. Click on any of the images for a larger version and some of the costume designer's notes.
