I understand why people hate this, but it’s true. I’m a costume designer, I look at this point from a completely different perspective. It’s my job to help define a character through their appearance. As much as we’d like to, we can’t change the collective associations that come along with particular looks or clothing items, i.e. a bow tie or a sweater vest.

Once you think about your appearance as sending a message to the outside world, whether you intend to or not, you can decide what kind of message you want to send.Some people have a naturally great sense of style and enjoy creating their message, others, not so much. I just finished working on a play in which one character says “You can’t wash plaid. It’s its own kind of filth. It’s a statement saying , I want you to know I care about not caring.” While I don’t necessarily agree with that statement, I sure can appreciate the sentiment. Plus, the way the actor delivered that line was funny as hell.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
