DRESS ’EM UP
Costume is a very important part of character design—clothing helps define and identify your character and tell its story. Costume includes not only clothing, but accessories and hair styles as well. Costume can help identify a character’s occupation—police uniforms, chef’s hats, football helmets, and farmer’s overalls are some obvious choices. Accessories, such as a movie star’s oversized sunglasses or a sheriff’s star-shaped badge, can also indicate a character’s identity and personality at a glance.
