The Mary Sue love the ruffle shirt worn by Robert Pattinson as Preston Teagardin”

Emma Potter talked to The Mary Sue about the challenges and enjoyment of bringing so many costumes and characters to life on The Devil All the Time. Like us, the Mary Sue were especially taken with Rob’s outfit “And boy do I love Robert Pattinson’s ruffle shirt as Preston Teagardin”. Below is an excerpt:

There are so many cast members so to me, the fun was never really being locked into one look. It was being able to go from picking Charlotte’s 1940s/1950s dresses or picking Sandy’s 1960s shorts. And floating around with all these different characters. It never got boring there was something new to play with. I do think certain people, like the Preacher, were looks that I hadn’t really explored in other projects so that was definitely something that was interesting to me.

Emma also spoke with Esquire, below are excerpts relating to Rob:

It’s not just a sea of denim and misery, though. As Robert Pattinson enters – his stomach-churning turn as the lecherous Reverend Preston Teagardin one of the film’s high points – there’s a sudden change of pace. He’s not one of the masses living hand-to-mouth. Instead, Teagardin is their master of ceremonies; the closest thing to a rock star for the religious people of these parts – a saint in a pastel suit. Immediately, something feels different. That was an intentional move by Potter and the film’s director, Antonio Campos.

“We talked about the idea that Teagardin is this preacher that comes into this environment and really disrupts it, y’know,” she says. “So we decided to lift this idea of a lounge singer, somebody who might’ve looked at late Elvis Presley, or Vegas lounge singers, and we put Robert’s character in that vein. He’s not inherently a good person. He’s someone that’s very showy.” Which translates to ruffled dress shirts, and a flip of perfectly coiffed hair: both tropes that were so ostentatious on their first run (and in retrospect) that they seemed almost sinful.
