What costumes were worn in cats the musical?
The costumes in Cats consist of various parts. The base of every costume is a unitard (one-piece dancewear made of nylon/lycra) which is custom-fit for the actor and hand painted to look like the character. These unitards are specially made with a mock turtle neck and no front seams, and they are entered through the shoulders and closed with hooks and eyes. Most costumes have "shoulder fluffies" made of shredded organza. All the costumes have a wig which matches the unitard. These wigs are made of yak hair dyed to match the colours of the unitard, and they have cat ears made of small bunches of hair that is either glued or tied in place. The wigs cover the actor's human ears and create the illusion of a real cat by changing the actor's silhouette. Another important part of the costumes is the tail. Tails are made of lengths of yarn tied to a base (which can be made of various things, like a crochet row or braided yarn). There is a loop at the top of the tail, and a thin belt (often made the same way as the tail base) is threaded through the loop and tied around the actor's waist. Most costumes also have knitted leg warmers, and many characters wear either knitted arm warmers, leather biker gloves, or evening gloves with the fingers cut off. All the actors wear dance shoes, which are sometimes painted to match the rest of the costume. The exact type and brand of shoes varies by production, but in the video production (the costumes of which were based on the ones in the then-current London production) the shoes resemble Capezio jazz shoes. Another very important aspect of the costume is the makeup. Each character has a unique makeup design. The actors apply their own makeup after being instructed by a makeup artist, and the makeup used is generally greasepaint.

Answer To scare evil spirits back into their graves. Halloween is when the ghosts/spirits wake up and are allowed to roam the earth, costumes scare them aw…ay. It was once known as All Hallows Eve. Nowadays we dress up because Halloween has been changed by the candy companies in order to get more money.

All characters wore costumes relating to the 1920s and 1930s. Men took on suits and hats replicating gangsters of the time period. Women were divided between classic dress…es and outfits that would have been considered more risque for the time.
Nowhere near as much as in America; bonfire night (November 5) is close to Halloween and that tends to be celebrated more.

ebay or amazon or online
they wear lots of clothing in patters of animals, to represent what they a dancing about they also have, masks which is a great add to their coustumes. Disregard the previous …answer. What Africans from different cultures wear to dance is not a one sentence answer and it is certainly not the previous one sentence answer. For traditional dances, each culture has their distinct costuming which is dependant on several different aspects of their culture and worldview. Masquerades are an institution entirely separate and no Africans do not just randomly wear masks when they dance. As a matter of fact in all my years as an African dancer, choreographer and costumes maker and in all my travels to Africa and research and study of African cultures I have never seen dancers wear masks. Why? Because, again, the masquerade is a separate institution that has it's own history and importance in African cultures. For contemporary African dance one can be creative using materials native to Africa and commonly used there including cowrie and other types of shells, fur, colorful beads, raffia, feathers, coconut shells, seeds, etc..etc.. With contemporary African dance costumes, since they may not to be tied to any one tradition, one has the freedom to explore and fuse different concepts and materials although these still should remain true to what would be considered "African". I hope this is a good place to start. Africa is a large continent with a very long and diverse history so questions pertaining to her are not going to be short and simple.

No one will usually stop you. But people may ask you what you are doing and why. They will give you looks, but costumes are worn to cosplay/anime conventions or in places like… Harajuku Japan.

No. Costumes are worn on Purim, which is in the spring.
