Costuming:

DAUGHTERS: Contemporise it? Black hoodie and jeans with Black veiling

Covering just the eyes with the veiling?
Tights, long sleeves, respectful. All daughters dressed the same with same hairstyles.
Get veiling from hat place?

Green Dress- same style in green? Or green pashmina. More relaxed- button undone.
Look into mourning dress

LA PONCIA: Cleaning apron, duster. Ask Cleaners? Black dress, black tights. Hair tied up, cloppy shoes. Cleaning gloves

THE MAN: Lighter hued clothes? Dressed nicely, suit? But not black and white. Smarter but quirky. Stands out enough to notice him, a little miss-matched. Has an identity.
