Vanya and Sonia, who spent their lives taking care of their ailing parents, have oversized costume and neutral color palettes based on birds that they reference. Sonia’s brown, tan, and green color palette mirrors her feeling of being a wild turkey. Vanya’s color palette of grey, white, and blue is suggestive the blue heron. In stark contrast to the neutral colors and plain textures of Vanya and Sonia, their sister Masha, a movie star, has a tight skirt, glitzy jewelry, and bright red shoes.
