Jo dresses in more saturated colors with lots of blues, like her costume on the tire swing with blue jeans, a blue sweatshirt, yellow bandana, and crocs. At Lizzy’s art exhibit she wears a little more of a sophisticated or mature deeper blue maxi dress.

The costumes in this film are simple ones but intentional. To dress like Hae Sung, stick to a blue color palette, button down shirts, and different colored pants or jeans, like his maroon jeans. He also carries a backpack and wears sneakers.

Lizzy from Showing Up

Lizzy is an introverted art student and a sculptor who is preparing for her exhibition as she struggles with finding balance with her creative work and everyday struggles, and the unexpected friend she finds in a pigeon she nurses back to health.

Lizzy’s costumes match her personality perfectly and are just like those of an art student. They feature very soft and muted colors, like her look with her canvas apron, blue shirt and khaki skirt. For her exhibition she dresses up more with a brown skirt and printed blouse. If you’re wearing this as a costume, taking a pigeon stuffed animal or prop and carrying it in a box could be a fun addition.
