Shakespearean Costume
When noblemen died they often left fine clothes to servants who, unable to wear them, sold the garments to actors for a small sum. Elizabethan costume was ornate with many layers and intricately decorated with jewels and trimmings. So actors could be splendidly attired. Whatever a play’s era or setting, it was performed in contemporary dress in Shakespeare’s time.
