“MAYES C. RUBEO PUTS THE CRAFT IN WARCRAFT”
Mayes C. Rubeo originally from Mexico is one of the most prestigious names in costume design in recent times. She has recently won the Costume Designers Guild Award in 2009 for the film Avatar for her wonderful work in the film. Mayes has also had other successes for her design work on films like Apocalypto and World War Z.
Next for Mayes is the highly anticipated film WARCRAFT, an epic adventure of battles between opposing realms, where she has designed pieces that are worthy of seeing, from the Orc costumes to those of the humans in the film.
This film is based on the phenomenal worldwide success of Blizzard Entertainment and is a spectacular saga of sacrifice and power where the many faces of war are discovered and in which each struggle to achieve something.
From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.
The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction.
