Journal Assignment 5: Costumes and Makeup

| January 31, 2017

Like sets and lights, costume design not only helps to tell the story, but also gives us insight into the individual characters (without them ever having to speak). A character’s costume may indicate gender, position and status, occupation, occasion, and personality (modesty, flamboyance, independence, etc.) – the “essence” of that character.

For this Journal Assignment…

find an image or link of a play, film or television show
select a character
and discuss what the costume design tells the viewer about that character

Remember, costumes involve more than actual attire (or lack there of). Costumes also involve hats, masks, makeup, wigs, and accessories. Review the Powerpointnotes on Costume Design to understand the objectives and goals for costume designers. To get a better sense of how costumes “create” a character, watch the clip from Guardians of the Galaxy.
