The Costume Page

By Julie Zetterberg Sardo
This site provides links to the history and design of costumes for the benefit of those who study and/or make costumes: costumers, students, historical re-enactors, science fiction fans, professionals, amateurs, dancers, theatrical costumers, trick-or-treaters, writers, researchers, and all those interested in fashion, textile art, and costume history. There are over 1,000 unique links listed on these pages to museums, Halloween costumes, how to make costumes, theatrical costuming, history of costuming, ethnic costumes, and much more.

Created in 1995-2007

Discussion Question(s)
1. What similarities and differences are evident in clothing from different times in history?
2. What might future clothing consist of?
3. What is the purpose of clothing?

Extension and Activities
1. Challenge students to compare clothing from two or more time periods and share their findings, with ideas about why clothing changes.
2. Suggest that students put on a play that was written for a particular time period and then, keeping the dialogue the same, change the time period and the costumes. What difference does this make in the impact of the play?


"It has been a real boost to have a blog that parents and students can go to and see not only the finished product, but the planning and putting everything together that the kids do. My eCoach has helped me so much by providing a space to show the process AND to share resources. (I can't keep track of my bookmarks, so if it's something I think is really good, I put it in 'Resources' on the team page. Now I can find it!) Take a bow!"
