All teenagers and women cha racters have thin and defined brows, thick and black eyeline rs, bright pink blush and bright lipsticks that contrasted harshly with their powdered white skin. The eyeliners made their eyes look larger, and the bright blush and red lipstick made them look energetic and happy all the time.

Each color has got it’s own meaningand each role has got it’s own special type of costume andmakeup. Also, I really liked most of the costumes becausethey all look very beautiful. Each small detail is perfected, andall of them are made by hand. Which I think is quite amazingbecause of the tremendous amount of embroidery on eachon. I also really liked the make up and masks since all thecolors are quite bright and they all contrasted with each otherJessica Wu Peking Opera Costumes Research, Page 5

The makeups are eccentric so the audiencewould watch the character’s face closely and no expressionwould be missed. Hence increasing the quality of the play.Jessica Wu Peking Opera Costumes Research, Page 6
  • 7. My Costume DesignAbove is my final Peking Opera Costume design. This costume is for ateenage girl between the age of 15-20. I used big and watery sleeves andlong dress to show that my character is a girl. I drew mostly cloudpatterns, which symbolizes good luck. I chose some bright colors toshow that the girl is very rich. Due to the bit of yellow at the left side, itshows that the girl is some kind of royalty since they are the only onesthat are allowed to wear the color yellow. I also used some blue to showthat the girl is very clever and mature.Jessica Wu Peking Opera Costumes Research, Page 7
