Creed 3: Diamond Dame Anderson

(see more
When Lizz started describing Damien to me, he was pitched as feeling like a motherless child with no sense of belonging, and whose dreams were perceived to be stolen. From that hollow, brutality grew, so, there was a lot to work with!

In the beginning, she really pushed the use of West African fabrics because of how important the rumble in the jungle was to Dame, but as we found out more about him, I pitched the narrative of Anansi, the West African trickster god, due to Dame’s fighting style, and it surprisingly hit!

Like the Adonis robe, the story that Lizz built around Dame’s clothing was deep and incredibly well researched, which made it quite easy to come and imagine what this guy might look like!
