However, fans aren’t usually aware of the hours and hours of work that take place behind the scenes for dressing their favorite characters.

Wardrobe is an important part of any show. Just like what happens in real life, fictional characters are judged by the clothes they wear. That is true for the Western “Yellowstone.”

“Everyone has a list of goals,” Boone said during the clip shared on the show’s Twitter page. “So, my bucket list of goals for doing shows was to do a Western.”
