“There is no costume without a character.”
– Jany Temime, Costume Designer
The Costume Department work hard to create costumes that perfectly depict a character’s personality. As an audience, we make assumptions when looking at a character based on their costume design.
Costume Designers were inspired by 1940s Hollywood gossip columnists when creating Rita Skeeter’s look.
Cinema idols from the twenties through fifties were used as inspiration for Gilderoy Lockhart’s costumes.
Now it’s your turn to create a costume for a character of your own invention. Remember to consider:
- What personality do they have?
- What colours would they wear?
- Which fabrics would you use?
