Kabuki costume

The art of kabuki, a type of stylized Japanese dance-drama, is a fascinating reflection of Japanese culture. Although it started out as a type of dance, kabuki eventually evolved into a full-blown type of theater, where its performers wear elaborate costumes and apply elaborate makeup to tell a dramatic story. Kabuki costumes range from the simple and realistic to some of the most extraordinary and outlandish inventions in the history of world theatre.
