The purpose of this thesis is to explore the costume design process of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, produced by Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri. This study examines the design process from the novice costume designer's point of view. It gives details on the rudiments of costume design as applied to this project, the character analysis, the historical clothing styles, the effects of the director's vision on the design process, and the compromises resulting from budgetary restraints. This thesis concludes with a summary of personal and outside observations of the production including suggestings for improvements.
