Quinones costume needed to be that of the dashing Spanish military
officer. His short cape is the type used by the cavalry.
Although it doesn't show in this sketch or the pictures on this page,
the doublet (like Cesar's) was stiffened with boning to make it fit the
form of the century. Again, as with the other men's costumes the
cod piece and stuffed peas cod were omitted. The hat is
very important to indicate a soldier with its peaked wide brim and
This was the first entire costume built. It represents in many
ways the ideal for the men's costume. The sleeves are slashed
according to period fashion with the red lining showing through the
gold outer fabric. The trunk hose are made of two layers, the red
underlining with the deeply slashed over layer. The boning in the
doublet gives it the shape it needs. However, after judging the
time required for these period touches some compromises were made for
the other costumes, particularly the trunk hose. The others
were pleated, pieced or gathered to suggest the period. The
costume moved well. Quinones appeared only in a "flash back"
scene, so the picture below is not well illuminated but it does
demonstrate the role of the costume in the play.
