Home - Costume

Welcome to the research guide for Costume, defined as: "...distinctive clothing for individuals or groups of performers, a visual presentation of character or idea through clothed physical appearance..." from The Oxford Encyclopedia of Theatre & Performance.

For research on general topics in theatre - history, performance, production and design, and the industry, see the Theatre Subject Guide.

Contact me directly to ask a question or to schedule an appointment for a research consultation. I'm happy to work one-on-one with you to help you find materials and/or discuss search strategies for your specific topic, at any stage of the research process.
