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.
