As pointed out in this post, Rumbelle and Captain Swan have the same color of outfits in the upcoming episodes.
Yeah, yeah this is a post about the costumes but…
Costumes are utilized as a subtle way to help viewers make the connection between or feel the same way about two or more characters.
Like how Belle and Milah had the same outfit to maybe signify both their romantic connection to Rumple (x).
Or how Emma’s costumes have included long black coats since Hook arrived on the show to maybe highlight the similarities between both characters (x).
So it’s interesting how we see Rumbelle and CS have these costumes in the upcoming episodes…
- Maybe viewers are supposed to see CS as a true love couple like Rumbelle? (lol, we already do amirite)
- Maybe it’s to remind us of how Hook used to think Rumple has moved on and has found love again while he had nothing except for his revenge and now, just like Rumple, his life suddenly had meaning because he too found love.
- Or maybe just a hint that there are similarities between these two couples like Emma and Belle brought hope into Hook’s and Rumple’s lives, etc.
Whichever it is, I just thought this was worth mentioning cause even if we’re just talking about costumes here, every single detail, even the tiniest one (especially in a show like OUAT) means something.
