Guillermo said in the biography that she loves constrictive clothing. It was really painful to be her. She had a wig that went all the way down to her feet, so it took a long time to get that into a bun.
We had to change my eye coloring, change my eyebrows to make sense with the black hair. I wrote seven-inch platforms to be more like a twin to Tom.
