What do you think of the photos?

The hats make it!
I imagine it was difficult to eat in that makeup.

I bet those masks were really hot and uncomfortable to work in day after day. But I sense you could get a Caption This or two from this article.


They look cool wearing the sunglasses!

In some strange way, it almost makes the movie feel more real--like there really are these people, lol! Great photos, thanks for sharing!
