The Tempest Costumes


   This look is based on my reading of Prospero's character. I see him as a grumpy, power hungry tyrant who is obsessed with the idea of returning to his former Florentine glory.
   Prospero's appearance forces itself on the other characters. His clothing is rich and heavy, setting Prospero apart both chromatically and socially. The only hint of his rustic lifestyle is the wild fur cloak he uses to pad his physical presence. Prospero's only real power is displayed through the magic book he stole from Caliban's witchy mother.
