You might not want to bring a knife to a gunfight, but if you’re costume director Emma Fryer, you’ll want to at least bring several outfit changes.
Set almost entirely in a warehouse in 1970s Boston, Free Fire not only required Fryer to put together realistic uniforms the cast could brawl in, but duplicates of every vintage pair of jeans, boots, and scarves featured. Bullet through the car coat but need another take? No problem, swap it out for coat #2 or maybe #3 or #4. We sat down with Fryer to discuss how she worked through all the sweat, blood, and dirt to serve some seriously funky looks.
