Haught Costume Couture

Actors become characters the moment the costume goes on, the makeup is set in place. Be it a space alien, medieval knight or queen, the costumes that fill the screen help draw us into realms of history, both true-to-life and imagined, and make the viewing experience a truly sensory one.
