“Oh, one further addendum. That's the last time you get to call me "whore".-Inara Serra

Every so often a director creates something original and brilliant, fans will always remember Joss Whedon’s Firefly as the “sci-fi western”.

Inara Serra, better known as a high society courtesan for the Union of Allied Planets, chose to leave the Companion House Madrassa to travel the outer rim on Serenity where she leased a private shuttle for workspace. Many will remember Inara for her chemistry with Mal(captain) that was constantly being disguised by bickering about one another’s careers or personal opinions.

This Asian influenced dress was one of my favorite costume designs in the series. Played by American Brazilian actress Morena Baccarin, Inara was one of the most mysterious characters in the story.

I like the subtle tone of color change from rust to brown to orange. Great work.
