    I really enjoyed this interview thank you. Though, I wish you could have asked her about 3D printing some of the costumes.

    So much costume design is either centered on a historical period, or, like Lord of the Rings' (awesome) design, based on European medieval things. It's utterly refreshing to see this unique set of designs combining ancient, traditional Africa with futuristic science fiction with functional modern clothing. Ruth Carter is genius. And thanks for putting women in armor that actually works!
