I’m from Tokyo, Japan. I would like to specialise in the use of materials and their manipulations to convey the tone and style of a character. I believe clothes tell a lot about a character. Thus I want to express characters’ personalities and stories through costumes.

This costume is for the British male wizard in 1920, he is a young auror in Ministry, has grey eyes and he’s family likes peacock.

Costumes tell the stories of the characters. The shape, colours and materials, all of the elements have meanings. Classical waistcoats and heavy long coats are popular outfit for mens in 1920. Corduroy fabrics tell you warm and classical personality. The roll up sleeves, the bold pockets and the reflecting characters’s youth and intellectual curiosity. The conspicuous stand collar gives you mysterious and smart senses. Indigo and olive colours suggest peacocks.

In the film, you could guess the character’s story from the costumes, even if they don’t mention their stories. Even just one small detail could effect on the film in a good way and bad way as well. That is why designing costumes are delicate and play important roles.
