With the development of the times and social progress, people begin to focus on the pursuit of spirituality after their material life is satisfied. As a popular art form, film and television dramas are favored by the audience, especially the younger generation. Among them, it has become one of the important ways to spread cultural information because of its audio-visual combination and strong intuitiveness. As a result, more and more directors are focusing on the distinctive characters in film and television dramas. How to express the status, character traits and emotional changes of the characters in the drama through costume modeling has become a key research topic for many scholars. This paper analyzes the positive effects and problems of the interdependence between costume design and film and television performance, in the hope that more scholars and practitioners will explore this field in greater depth.
