42 The Costume Designer Summer 2018 Vancouver O N L O C A T I O N : By Amanda Riley Working in the movie business can be a globetrotting lifestyle. However, life on location in a new place can be uncharted territory. During my most recent job away, I had the chance to work on location in the Pacific Northwest's Vancouver, BC. Living away from all of the comforts and resources of sunny Southern California, I found myself pleasantly surprised by everything this coastal city has to offer. I love developing the true character in each role. One of the highlights of the shopping scene in Vancouver is the mul- titude of designer consignment shops and specialty boutiques hidden around the city. Unlike Los Angeles, where we have miles of costume houses to scour, Vancouver has only one major department store. In order to find those pieces and more unique designer items, there are a few little gems that I always rely on.
