Artist Michelle Wai Sze Nga in the film LOST AND FOUND IN TOKYO (SHOOK NUI OI MAN YAU) had over 30 costumes. She said, "When I went to the costume fitting before the shoot began, I thought I went to a boutique because they prepared 50 costumes. Many were very cute, when I tried each one I felt younger!"
In a Matsuri scene in the film, Michelle and lead actor Danson Tang put on traditional kimono. She said, "It was the first time I wore a kimono. The team invited a kimono master to assist with our costumes. I thought I would wait until after the shoot to eat, so I could look better on camera. I didn't realize that it would take me a hour to finish. The kimono with the head dress was 7 to 8 pounds and it was super tight too, even breathing a little harder would have been very tough. Thus I had to wait until after the shoot to eat. However, when everyone saw me in the kimono they said I was Kawaii. Thus starving for awhile was worth it!"
