To represent a military camp, Priscilla used burlap fabric for the backdrop and texture on the acting blocks. The fabric was torn and ripped to signify a war in the process.

To represent the wedding in progress, they attached white fabric to the acting blocks to match the translucent backdrop. The way in which the backdrop was hung was to mimic drapery folds in a formal wedding. In the lighting grid, they attached a hidden red fabric strip that would be pulled down as a prop for the suicide scene. They learned the hitchhiker's knot to make a quick release for the actress.
