Costumes, in Elizabethan times especially tell an audience what your station in life is. I have four costumes; two men of means, one servant and a wealthy widow. If I do my job correctly you should be able to tell what character I play even if I wear a plain black leotard for the entire play, but it is fun to play dress up.
