Fans of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments know that Shadowhunters look better in black. has just released a new set video where the cast (Lily, Jamie, Jemima, Kevin and Godfrey) as well as Cassie and Harald Zwart talk about the clothes Shadowhunters wear and reveal that it’s “all about the leather”.


Harald Zwart on the Shadowhunter look:

“How do you find a kind of goth, leathery look that hasn’t been done a million times before and not too S&M and not too this or that?” (…) “It’s search and find.”

“It’s very sexy. It’s very edgy. It’s not costume-y. It’s very much a look,” star Lily Collins — who plays Clary Fray — explained of the Shadowhunters’ gear, which she sports later on in the film after learning she’s not as mundane as she once thought.

Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace) and Kevin Zegers (Alec) also talk about the runes the Shadowhunters wear:

“They’re kind of a pain in the ass to put on in the morning,” bemoaned Kevin Zegers, who plays Alec Lightwood.

“It takes about three hours,” confirmed Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Jace Wayland. “We’ve managed to cut it down to about two and a half hours now. I will sleep in them sometimes. I won’t shower. I’ll stay in them, and then you come to work the next day, and it cuts down about two hours in the chair.”

And of course you can’t talk about fashion and not mention our glittery High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. Godfrey Gao:

“I’ve put on glitter, eye shadows, nail polish, really glittery lipsticks, and I think I do have the red-powdered cheeks going on,” Gao said with a grin.

  1. During the interview with Harald,you can see a little glimpse of the scene just before Magnus’s Party, where Jace puts Clarys hair back down …<3

  2. is there a link to this interview on the UK site? I can’t view it because it says the clip can’t be loaded for my location 😦

  3. If someone could put it on Youtube or other it would be very much appreciated 😀 Even here in Canada those MTV interviews are not available 😦 Thanks !

  4. Yes, could someone please put the interview anywhere but MTV? It’s a real pain in the ass not being able to get things like this in Canada and the Canadian MTV just plain sucks.

    HEHEEHEH just watched the video…. Jace undoing Clary’s hair from the ponytail at the party instead of the institute was perfectly amazing and surprisingly better. I sort of regret watching it though, considering the fact that I NEED TO SEE THE MOVIE NOWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
