In September, we showed you the first look at the costumes for the villains Green Goblin and Swiss Miss in Julie Taymor’s problem-plagued Spider-Man musical, Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark. The costumes looked ridiculous, but admittedly they were out of context. Now Vogue has premiered a look at the costumes in beautiful images by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz…and the costumes still look ridiculous. The images also provide the first look at Carnage, who, without the benefit of CG, looks like a Halloween costume for a child who’s missing a neck. Says Taymor of including the character, “I saw the inherent theatricality in it, and I couldn’t resist.” Looking at the image, I hope she at least tried to resist.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark was recently delayed again and is now set to open in January 2011.
