The wearing of costumes is an important part of holidays developed from religious festivals such as Mardi Gras (in the lead up to Easter), and Halloween (related to All Hallow's Eve). Mardi Gras costumes usually take the form of jesters and other fantasy characters; Halloween costumes traditionally take the form of supernatural creatures such as ghosts, vampires, pop-culture icons and angels. In modern times. Christmas costumes typically portray characters such as Santa Claus (developed from Saint Nicholas). In Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States the American version of a Santa suit and beard is popular; in the Netherlands, the costume of Zwarte Piet is customary. Easter costumes are associated with the Easter Bunny or other animal costumes.

The man that coined the term “15 minutes of fame” is Mr. Andy Warhol. I wonder what he would have thought of the Internet. To do an Andy Warhol Costume, you’ll need a black turtle neck + slim black pants (a black suit would also work), round plastic glasses (clear or white are best), and a short white wig. Put white makeup on your eyebrows and carry around a can of Campbell’s tomato soup for some authenticity.

The timeline for the story spans over two years and each scene was very different requiring very different costumes. We had to cater for a Christmas scene, a winter ball, an ice-skating trip, about to go travelling or just back from travelling, summer outfits, wedding outfits and the transition from childhood to adulthood for the young characters. Most of the cast had several different outfits for the Show.
The custom of guising at Halloween in North America is first recorded in 1911, where a newspaper in Kingston, Ontario reported children going "guising" around the neighborhood. In 19th century America, Halloween was often celebrated with costume parades and "licentious revelries". However, efforts were made to "domesticate" the festival to conform with Victorian era morality. Halloween was made into a private rather than public holiday, celebrations involving liquor and sensuality de-emphasized, and only children were expected to celebrate the festival. Early Halloween costumes emphasized the gothic nature of Halloween, and were aimed primarily at children. Costumes were also made at home, or using items (such as make-up) which could be purchased and utilized to create a costume. But in the 1930s, A.S. Fishbach, Ben Cooper, Inc., and other firms began mass-producing Halloween costumes for sale in stores as trick-or-treating became popular in North America. Halloween costumes are often designed to imitate supernatural and scary beings. Costumes are traditionally those of monsters such as vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, skeletons, witches, goblins, trolls, devils, etc. or in more recent years such science fiction-inspired characters as aliens and superheroes. There are also costumes of pop culture figures like presidents, athletes, celebrities, or characters in film, television, literature, etc. Another popular trend is for women (and in some cases, men) to use Halloween as an excuse to wear sexy or revealing costumes, showing off more skin than would be socially acceptable otherwise. Young girls also often dress as entirely non-scary characters at Halloween, including princesses, fairies, angels, cute animals and flowers.

Up until the fifteenth century kimono were made of hemp or linen, and they were made with multiple layers of materials. Today, kimono can be made of silk, silk brocade, silk crepes (such as chirimen) and satin weaves (such as rinzu). Modern kimono that are made with less-expensive easy-care fabrics such as rayon, cotton sateen, cotton, polyester and other synthetic fibers, are more widely worn today in Japan. However, silk is still considered the ideal fabric for more formal kimono.
The list of costumes needed includes a civil war uniform, victorian crinolines, bloomers, breeches, cravats, various wedding outfits and ball outfits. It also includes costumes the operatic tragedy that the characters perform: a troll, a hag, a swashbuckling hero, a fair maiden, a dastardly villain and a knight. These are all glorious costumes with some very distinctive silhouettes.
I think S2 had lovely costumes. Maybe these will be better 'live.' It could also be that the same group of designers is doing the costumes so you don't have as much designer diversity. They allowed a lot of designers or work on S1, fewer on S2,and probably even fewer on S3. Only a few designers as opposed to say, 18, means less interesting schemes.
We wanted Aunt March to be very grand so we created the largest crinolines we could get away with on the tiny stages. We used long taffeta skirts that enough fabric in them to fit over crinoline underskirts. However, making these skirts wider also had the effect of lifting them up higher so we also had to lengthen them with taffeta offcuts so they reached to the ground. Many Victorian crinolines had a panel at the bottom which would get dirty and damaged when they dragged on the ground (as we discovered!). The extra panel acts as a dirt panel which is easy to replace when the hems get worn.
