Transcript of Costume Mistress
Creating a Character
Costumes ultimately can help an actor get into character
We can create costumes or pull them from storage
When creating or choosing costumes you need to think about the following:
The overall feel(mood) of the show
Figuring out Costumes
Before you do anything you need to read the script.
By reading the script you decide what look the character will take on. Also you can establish what time period the play takes place.
Sometimes the director will overall decide when the play takes place.
Designing the Costume
When you are ready to design the costume you will come up with a concept design/Rendering
A rendering is just ideas of how you want your characters to look. This might not be the end design but it is a goal.
Look at the pictures below for concept design for the show Steel Magnolias

The Actors themselves

This is a list of all items and all costumes a character wears and when they change the costume
Once everything is together you will have a Costume Parade
A costume parade is when the director gets to see each of the costumes in natural stage light, and can make notes or changes
Before the show you will steam costumes to make them look their best.
During the Show you will help with
Which is when an actor has only a few seconds to change
Between shows you will fix any costumes that need attending
