Are you ready to be blown away by a brand new Nickelodeon series? Well, this Sunday, the brand new show The Other Kingdom is premiering on the network, and we already know you're going to love it. In the show, actress Esther Zynn plays Astral, a fairy princess destined for the throne who gets to experience three months as a regular teenage girl before deciding if she wants to stay human or become the fairy queen.
Naturally, the show has some really awesome and fantastical costumes, and Esther told TWIST all about them when we caught up with her ahead of the show's debut.
"I have two looks," she tells us. "The human look is super easy, it takes like an hour [to get into.] They dyed my hair for Astral's human look, when my hair is actually naturally brown, so that's a change."
"In terms of the fairy look, it took about two and half hours to get into it, so the days we filmed those scenes were early days," she says. "I had prosthetic ears, a wig, and glitter. It's all completely custom-made, the armor is leather, and the boots were made after measuring each part of my foot to figure out the exact size. It's so fun, it's like the ultimate most fun you can have filming, it's like playing dress-up."
With all these cool costumes and props for the show, we guessed the set must have been amazing – and Esther definitely confirmed that.
"The whole [costume closet] is insane," she gushes. "For the prosthetic ears, basically all of the fairies have them, and they have this box that looks almost like a pizza box, but when you open it up it's just a bunch of ears! So casual."
In fact, it wasn't odd at all to see lots of different characters walking around a set at once.
"In a day, I'd be walking to my dressing room and see somebody dressed as a normal high school student, but then there's like Queen Titania or like a giant!" she dishes. "That's just a day on set."
We can't wait to see how the show all comes together!
