Attire of Shakespeare’s Creations
In the William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, there are four worlds in which he manifests his novel; all four full of tremendous characters who eventually come together to create a great collaboration of bewilderment and confusion. The four worlds, The Fairy World, The Court, The Play World, The Lovers World, all work together to create a novel that twists and pulls at the readers mind and heartstrings. Shakespeare uses conversation and malapropisms to distinguish characters in the novel, yet each of their different personalities could be shown even more so through the use of different garments.
In the first world, the fairy world, one character truly stands out as having the most vibrant personality- Titania, Queen of the Fairies. Titania’s long, curly, blond hair would be held back ...view middle of the document...

In the second world, the lover world, all of the men lust for the dazzling, Athenian girl- Hermia. Hermia’s golden-brown hair would complimented by the alluring green wreath in her hair. She would be clothed in an opal-colored toga, with wine-colored purple accents. The toga’s shawl would be the same urchin-purple color. Her tanned arms would be flattered by a stunning violet wrap-around bracelet. Her dainty feet would be adorned with lilac colored gladiator sandals that would wrap around her thin legs up until just below her knees.
Hippolyta, the renowned Queen of the Amazons, manifested in the third world, the Court. Her chocolate brown hair would be complimented by the sea-green tiara. Her slender neck would be bejeweled with a two tear opal and diamond necklace. Her willowy waist would be wrapped in a tight, turquoise corset. The corset would fade into a flowing skirt made of the grasses of the Amazon’s steamy forests. The skirt would shine with all of the colors of her homeland, and flow in the wind as she strides to her wedding altar with King Egeus.
In the play world, Snug the Joiner played the fearsome lion (Pyramus and Thisbe). Snug would be wearing a large headpiece in order to mimic the lions mane. He would also be wearing a large suit with a soft stomach to imitate the lion’s body. Finally, the bodysuit would be topped off with a long tail with a bush of fur at the end. On each of the paws, would be four large claws, to make the suit look more realistic.
In conclusion, the four world’s (The Fairy World, the Lover World, the Court world, and the Play World) main character’s personalities can be showed best through the use of comprehensive and detailed costumes. Fairy Queen would be wearing a corset dress made of the forest flowers and leaves. The beautiful Hermia would be wearing a short, white toga with purple accents. Hippolyta, the Amazon Queen, would be wearing a dress made from the grasses of her jungle. Lastly, Snug the Joiner would be wearing a full Lion suit.
