The purpose of this article is to analyse the use of local references in drama costume design, considering the possible limits when ‘showing yourself’ to others. From crossovers between the languages of Carnival and theatre, it brings up a local issue, but one that demands a global reflection, because it can lead any one of us, with any cultural background, from any country, to think about which references to choose and how to use them in drama costume design.
