Characters come to life with hair, makeup and costume. While the actor is responsible for bringing personality to a fictional character, a Stylist or Costume Stylist is responsible for aiding the lead Costume designer in creating the image of the character. An un-ironed or ripped shirt was worn by an otherwise put together woman can show your audience without words that your character is having an off day.
A well fitting suit in navy blue worn with a pocket square and a sharp set of oxfords polishes your character and entices your audience in through attraction and envy. When it comes to costume, it’s not just about clothing, it’s about creating personality and emotion with fabrics. It’s about showing the traits of a character without having to say a word and feeling the change in a character’s mood or adventure when they change outfits. It’s about telling a story.
