Fans were thrilled with the first pictures of Watchmen's heroes in their costumes, but how did those costumes come about? Michael Wilkinson, the costume designer for the film, has posted a video diary from the production to, which was also publicized on the film's official blog.

Watchmen director Zack Snyder provided the following introduction to the video journal:

To put it simply, there is an enormous amount of characters that populate the many time periods and environments of the Watchmen world. Although we encountered many challenges while making Watchmen, one of the most interesting and rewarding was creating the wardrobe for all of those people. This is the second time I've had the pleasure of working with Costume Designer Michael Wilkinson. Once again, I'm amazed by his talent and dedication. Take a look.
