Wow so the idiotic costumer didn't put in zippers, they sowed them into the space suits, which weren't on time and made things super slow to deal with when people needed out of them, WTF!? And then of course sh*t rolls down hill and Senesky was fired and then ended up black listed? Sheesh!
These are behind the scenes details I didn't know before...
And that happens in Hollywood all the time. Costumes of the week are often literally sewn onto actors because there's not time to do the kind of proper construction you'd want in the very short time you have. As such, I'd stop short of calling the costumer "stupid", especially if he couldn't get the actors in for a fitting until the previous day.
