I have a question- does anyone prefer Storm's hairdo in x-men 1 vs. x2? I certainly do ...she looks lame and soccer-mommish in x2 even if the wig in #1 wasn't done very well- it was more ...Storm,
lets hope they giver her long flowing (from the comics) hair in x3.
Hold on, didn't the extra on set say it was relatively simialr to x2?....think so.
ugh

X-Maniac
08-28-2005, 07:44 PM
I prefer her hair in X1, it was more long and flowing and like the typical representation of the comicbook character.

In X2, yes it was a bit 'soccer-mom' and also a bit yellow...but it wasn't that terrible.

Heavens knows what it will be like in X3. We've had reports of long and flowing, and that Halle refused to wear extensions (not sure she ever did, as it was a wig) and that her hair will be short.

alright, on movies.com with "mutant death" info, there's also a tidbit on storms "considerably shorter" hairdo. EEk, i want her long and flowing 70's look, although the costume would be somewhat distasteful for a funeral.....but at least its black. And thats all that matters
right?

I think this may have to do with poor lighting when this scene happened. Which im surprised they weren't able to fix this when in editing. Also did they do all of X3 on digital HD or 16mm maybe? Because it could be a just a bad camera natch were the filter used under exposed the coloring.

http://movies.kikizo.com/media/storm/storm.jpg

Although here is a better lighting pic and there is still the obvious yellow tint. I wonder what type of wig that they are using?

I think a good way to remedy the wig is for them to dye Halle's roots a light blonde and work the wig from there so that it wouldn't look glued on. Better styled bangs to cover her hair lines help alot too.

BTW I know I've been asking this forever but can someone color her eyes blue in those pics? I've always felt that little feature would fully complete her transformation from the comic since Singer overlooked it.

I'm telling you that wig from X1 just had a crappy lace front. It was also waaay too over glued. I have worked with these types of wigs before and when made correctly almost need no glue. Whoever the hair person was onset that day just went a lil too glue happy or something. I remember reading somewhere that wig was made by a different person than the rest of the wigs and hair peices in that movie. They just need to get some one who knows what they're doing and has worked on films before. I mean I have a few friends on broadway right now and they wear at least two different wigs through out the show and they look so incredibly real that they could go out in them and no one would bat an eye, so it all really comes down to getting the right person for the job. I know I've rambled on quite a ways about wigs so please forgive;) .

Hey I'm all for wig discussion especially with someone who does it professionally :D

The wig in the first film did look way overglued in the scene where Storm unleashes the lightning and wind in the Statue Of Liberty. It seems hard to make it look natural in the root area, especially when its white hair since you have to make it look beleivable and not like a bad wig, that's probably why they gave her the bangs in the first. It also didn't flow naturally with the wind since it looked heavy like seen here:

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/Willsncz/Xmen3.jpg


Another way to remedy the "glued looking" roots is with a tiara/headdress but I highly doubt she's going to wear that. It looks way better in X2 though I gotta give them that so hopefully with how it looked in the past two films it will be perfected.

Trip to Victoria

Only a few short days after moving to the city, my brother and I were packing for our four day trip to Victoria, the captial of our province, and also the place where my Dad is currently working on "X-Men 3". My Dad payed for my brother and I to be flown out by sea plane directly from Vancouver harbour, which was totally awesome. The view from the air as we flew out to Vancouver Island was spectacular, and overall was one of the coolest 35 minutes of my life.

When we arrived in Victoria harbour, my Dad picked us up and we went back to our hotel to drop of our bags, then it was straight to Royal Road University, where the filming of the movie was taking place. My Dad still had to wrok for a little while, but he showed us around the gigantic university campus, which was supposed the Mutant Castle or something of that sort (I'm not much of an X-Men fan). I am, however, a fan of anybody who I've seen in a celebrity magazine. And I do believe Halle Berry falls into that category. My Dad took us into one of the gardens on campus where they were filming a scene with Halle Berry and Ellen Page. We stood about 5 feet away from Halle Berry, and she turned around and waved at us. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Anyway, before we could say anything or get a picture or an autograph, a P.A. told us to leave, because we were "distracting the actors". So this time, I have nothing to show for my meeting with a celebrity. Oh well...

Anyway, besides from being on the X-Men 3 set, we did lots of touristy type things. The last time I had been in Victoria I was five, so I didn't really remember anything. We watched an IMAX movie about a group of people climbing Mount Everest, we went through the amazing Royal BC Museum, did some shopping, and just generally had a great time in our province's capital.

When it was time for us to fly back to Vancouver, my Dad set up reservations with HeliJet, a large helicopter and jet plane company. My Dad got a few pictures of us taking off in the helicopter, then we flew back to Vancouver, where my Mom picked us up and took us home. Overall, my brother and I are lucky kids. I mean, who gets to fly in a sea plane and a chopper within a span of four days? Nobody I've met so far.

I'll reiterate again....I hated her hairstyling in X2. It was way too sophisticated and, well, worldly. Storm is the Earth Mother. She is not necessarily caught up in looking the most chic of the team.

Halle just looked...better in X1. Her skin tone was darker and more honey-toned. She actually had a little thing called MAKE-UP on as well. And while the wig was obviously fake-looking, the length was more in tune with the Weather Goddess as she's portrayed in the source material.

In contrast, X2's Storm's skin complexion was WAY too fair to be believable as Storm. What happened? And the feathered, flip styled hair just made me think of "That's Halle in a wig" the whole time. What's more, it's like she had zero make-up on. Why? No lip stick, eyeshadow, she just looked plain and bland.

X1's Storm had a greater presence, a deeper toned voice and richer looks. X2's Storm just looked 'blah' across the board.

You'll reiterate again? How many times is that... You do know the word 'iterate' means to repeat, therefore to 'reiterate' is re-repeat, to say for a third time... and now you are 'reiterating again' so that's four times! :joker:

But, yes, joking aside... They need a decent wig - it shouldn't be too hard to do! The X1 look was much better... and a tiara that also functioned as a communications headset could have worked too. Can someone do a manip with X1 Storm wearing her comicbook headdress/tiara so we see if it looks funkily ethnic or just stoopid?

Now, if they can avoid Michael Jacksonizing her for X3, I'll be so happy. I hated that they powdered her up so fair in X3--her real complexion is fine and better suited for the Weather Goddess.

You know, when I look at the pic, it's obvious that Halle actually does have a swan neckline like Storm does. I wonder why I never noticed that before--it's like it gets lost in the costuming.

Jan Irisi
08-31-2005, 08:48 AM
Halle's problem is that it is a relatively unnatural color for starters. Famke's was rather generic in style, so it isn't that hard to look like it is her real hair. Had Halle's wig been brown for instance, it wouldn't have looked so out of place.

Yep, white hair on a black woman is never going to look natural. It's bad enough with blonde hair on a black woman - that often looks like a wig, especially if straightened. So it's difficult to make the white hair seem natural. Bleaching Halle's hair would ruin it - as Tina Turner found to her cost when all her hair fell out back in the old days, the reason she turned to those wigs.

is storm capable to summon forth winds as powerful as that found on the planet Neptune which happens to be known as the The Planet of Winds? would like to get some insight...

Comicbook Storm has fairly extensive powers. She has to 'tune' herself in to the planet she is on, in order to manipulate its weather systems. The atmosphere is a huge energy system, like an electrical circuit, with energy coming in from the sun and space (heat from the sun, electrical energy from radiation particles emitted by the sun and from deep space). Storm uses energy drawn from the earth to change the balance of energy in the atmosphere and create weather. I believe she can only create weather that the planet itself could create naturally.

In the comics she was able to manipulate the 'solar wind' - the stream of electrical particles and radiation from the sun - and she was also able to draw energy from an entire galaxy when she wanted to kill an alien inside her body. On other planets, it takes her time to tune herself in to the planet's energy systems. She also needs to be aware of the weather phenomena it is possible for her to create - if she doesn't know about it, she doesn't know how to make it happen.

I doubt she could create Neptunian winds anywhere other than on Neptune unless she was aware of how the winds were created and was able to duplicate that on Earth or anywhere else.

Movie Storm is not as powerful as comicbook Storm.

Hope that helps!

Well... she did say 'i can't control it like that' when summoning a windstorm to raise Wolverine... Comicbook Storm could have controlled it, and grabbed him and personally flown him right up there as well!

Wig's like those used in movies and broadway shows usually start at $2,000. But then there's up keep as well. They cost so much because, first, they are made of human hair and, second, are made entirely by hand. As in one person threading each strand of hair in one by one. One wig can take any where from 60 to 80 hours to make. What I think the problem was with Halle's wigmaker is that he or she just had no experiance in making, I don't know exactly how to put this, a strange wig. It being white and having to go on an african american actress. Now the wig maker who designed all the wigs for the show I spoke of has had experiance in that feild. His work in the show Wicked is great. Also a few years ago he worked on another show called Into the Woods where he gave Vanessa Williams this sort of dark blonde with black streaks do that started with corn rows. You never would have guessed that it was a wig. Also it has to do with the people that are putting the wig on Halle, as I mentioned before, In X1 it looked like they went glue happy and glopped that stuff on like it was going out of style. And good wigs only need a bit of glue to stay on. But to answer your question (I know I have been rambling on and every one's probably tired of reading about wigs) It's not that the wigs were cheap per say, just that it looked like the maker had no previous experiance of working with strange designs.

Theoretically, she could've zapped Magneto w/o having to worry about the "huge copper conductor".

Not really, comic Storm tried that with Magneto and he just absorbed it. Lightning is part of the magnetic spectrum that Mags can control.

I want vulcan eyebrows for Storm this time...that (along with her blue eyes) is yet another example of Singer's attempts to subtract the fantasy of this series and "ground" it. I've been trying to put my finger on what it is that could really make Halle look like Storm. And I went through the source material and found that she has always had slanted brows...Chris Claremont commented on it and said that, despite her beauty Storm was always meant to be an unusual-looking woman--and such unique looks were not to be tied strictly to her hair color.

Well the only problem with the eye thing is that they might be afraid of consistency and keep her eyes the same, same with the eyebrows.

I do hope they change it with the stuff you mentioned though.

Somewhere deep in the x1.5 dvd they have an early costuming test reel for Halle as Storm, which included white eyebrows, contact lenses and a widows peak wig. As a huge fan of Storm's, I nearly fainted when I saw how great Halle looked on that reel. She totally embodied Storm's otherworldly beauty. Its too bad they went for a more mundane, grounded look for Storm in the final, but at least there is those few moments to show how great things could have been. I'm sure someone can find it if they look hard enough(i've since lost my copy of x1.5).

I just checked it out on the 1.5 again and yeah it does look very good especially the hair and eyebrows.

The only thing I wasn't a big fan of was the white contact lenses since they seemed to hinder her site but I wished they went with that look and the blue eyes, that would have completely sold it. I wish I had a good camera to post it though :(

Yes, but she could have frozen him, dehydrated him or suffacated him aswell, all of which she has done in the comics. As far as comic-Storm's powers, she intuitively connects with a planet and can create effects she normally doesnt do on earth(as seen in her 90's limited series, where she could have summoned ruby lasers or calcium hail due to an alien planets unique atmosphere). Also, she is able to create effects that would normally not occur on the planet, as she did in a recent issue of uncanny, when she increased the air pressure around a nuke to that of Jupiter(the largest planet in the solar system), thus containing the nuke's explosive energy until it was safely hurled into the upper atmosphere/space. Granted, the effort made her pass out, but jean passed out in the movie just by using cerebro. The scene in x2 where she effortlessly summons multiple tornados while piloting a jet seems to indicate her movie-version has the capacity of her comic-version, if not her fine motor control and creativity.

Right...but wrong...

Lightning is not part of the magnetic spectrum. Bad science!

Electricity and magnetism are related, one does not normally exist without the other. Moving electricity creates magnetism, and moving magnetism (like in Magneto's mutation machine where his magnetism was whirled around him by the rings) creates electricity. The two natural forces are often combined and known as 'electromagnetism'.

Magneto's magnetism is at least partly created by the super-enhanced electrical flow within his nervous system (according to a comic in which Moira MacTaggert explained his powers), so he could therefore absorb electricity (such as lightning) and use it to boost his magnetism. Similarly, his magnetism creates electricity.

In the comics he did once draw down lightning (by warping magnetic fields within a storm that Storm had created) and absorbed the energy of the lightning. He passed the lightning through Storm first, catching her off-guard and she was being destroyed until Nightcrawler teleported her out of the way. In the cartoon, Magneto (on his first appearance) absorbed the lightning that Storm threw at him.

Interestingly, Storm once attacked him with a blizzard but held back from trying to kill him, giving him chance to strike back at her - he said the extreme cold enhanced his magnetic powers and turned him into a superconductor, and he zapped her with a power blast.

Both of them have fairly similar powers in that they generate natural electricity - Magneto uses the magnetism that it creates to control metal; Storm uses the electricity itself to alter the weather. Both have additional boosters - Storm draws energy from the earth as she could not herself create the energy needed for huge weather changes and Magneto also has massive amounts of iron in his body to boost his magnetism.

That looks so much more REAL than that thing they had for X1's final look. The hairline is near perfect and it looks like the hair actually GROWING from his scalp (au naturel). The bangs they gave her made the thing LOOK like a wig--something just plopped down on her head. :down

Yet, the hairline looks natural, as if actual white hair folicles are growing from her hairline. I notice that Wolverine and Jean also have similar "hairlines".

How is that accomplished? Do they use make-up and prothetics to merge the fake forehead with the real one?

It's ridiculous that they didn't go with that look in X1, or even X2. That's as real-looking, as it can get :mad:

I think they use an air-brush type thing to change Halle's roots to looking white, and it just washes out when she's finished....I think. I'm not a hair designer :p

You know...maybe they couldn't get the hairline to stick when the wind was blowing in her hair. As we could tell in X2, they accomplished this greatly (X jet going down)...maybe they'll bring back that prototype? :up:

LOL

Alright this is how it's done. The wig's "scalp" is made of a thin piece of lace that each hair is threaded through individually. Now that piece of lace comes down a bout one or two inches below the hairline on the forhead so it looks like the hair is growing out os the scalp. But the lace is so thin that it looks almost invisible. The lace used in movie wigs is so thin that it can come undone easily and has to be taken care of very well, while broadway wigs (because they are seen from so far away, can get away with using less fragile material. Let me try looking for some pictures to show you what I mean and I will post them as soon as I can.

Halle's wig is a little more cut shot this time 'round. Still brite white, but it continues to get shorter as these Xmen movies progress. When I saw her, it wasn't in any special hairstyle, just more natural looking. It's hard to explain, because it really doesn't look that special. One thing though, it was very round. She looks great in it.

If what Retro's source described for Storm is correct, we can expect her to have an asymetrical bob. I'm not really sure if I like that or not. X2 already portrayed Storm as a Hollywood, stylized fashionplate--a polar opposite of the comic character.

This assymetrical bob deal sounds like more of the same. But it might work though. We'll see..
