Dave - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Libby kisses Hurley at the cliff, there is a strand of Libby's hair which you can see hanging freely over her left cheek when the camera is on Hurley. When the camera is on Libby you see the same strand pinched between their heads. Then as the camera switches back on Hurley the strand hangs freely again. It's not possible that this happened only through the force of wind as their heads are stuck together quite tightly throughout the whole kiss.

Season 1 generally

Question: When Claire is pregnant with her baby, her belly looks very realistic. Does anyone know how they make it look so real?

Answer: Using a mold, a realistic pregnancy belly is made of latex (rubber), including the distinct belly button, to suit the proportions of Emilie de Ravin who plays Claire. It is then painted with a special paint/adhesive compound that adheres to the surface and for shots of the actual belly, additional veining and stretch marks are airbrushed on.
