"Wiig’s character Pamela wears a lot of white with oversized shoulder ruffles and expensive looking jewelry so it isn’t a surprise that she fashions a garbage bag jumpsuit complete with sleeve puffs to match the kind of blouses she wears.
Protecting yourself against the virus that is killing off everyone doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish, and Pamela looks like she has taken part in Project Runway hardware store challenge to make the chicest look that doubles as a protective gear. The look is complete with goggles, mask, purple rubber gloves, a designer handbag placed over her arm as if she was taking a regular shopping trip and heeled ankle boots.
In the same way Pamela clings to her clothes as a way to provide entertainment for herself, Carol does the same with a glue gun and a whole lot of bedazzling. From the Oklahoma shirt at the start of season 2 to the boots she makes for Melissa as part of their Secret Santa, Carol’s entire look is about the bold. If she was to suddenly start wearing all black it would be an instant signal that something is up. Even during a funeral scene in this week’s episode her somber ensemble is still low key striped and floral. As costume designer Sandra Burns put on Instagram “Can Carol have too many patterns in one outfit? Nope.” Carol’s not met a floral, heart, abstract, stripe or polka dot she doesn’t love and despite this colorful outlook and how often they play their crisis for the absurd there is still a sense they are walking the tightrope of despair."
