    Costume box

    What is a costume box?
    It's a box having a set of clothes in it
    It's a box having a set of clothes
    It's a box within a set of clothes

    I have problem defining the word "costume box" in English. What's your opinion about my self-made definitions? Do they work?

    Re: Costume box

    I assume a "costume box" is a term used in the acting profession. We don't use it in everyday life. When I was a child I had a "dressing-up box" in which I kept clothes to wear when I wanted to "play a character" at a "fancy-dress party".

    None of your definitions is grammatical, nor do they have a closing punctuation mark.

    It's a box containing special clothes for playing dress-up.
    It's a box containing costumes for use in plays.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
