Horatio is Hamlet's most trusted friend and advisor. He is a scholar and is the only character to survive to the end of the play. Horatio is the one who lives on to tell the tragedy of Hamlet. His costume is meant to tie to Hamlet as much as possible to express their connection to each other but is meant to be less regal and more practical for his life of studying. The sweater garment is created by layering fabric, faux flowers and beading to create the unique texture.
