The secret of our success

We have an obsession with fabric (some might say unhealthy but we’re okay with that, everyone has their vices).  We have several hundred square feet in our warehouse dedicated to the most beautiful fabrics and trims you can imagine.  They display lovely textures and patterns.  Our designs would not seem as spectacular without the right fabric to bolster their ingenuity. 

We have over twenty years of experience in costume design and construction.  For these reasons we are always the first choice of many theatres when they need costumes.  We do not discriminate between well-known theatres and more obscure ones.  We do not discriminate between large and small casts either.  We dedicate our attention to providing the best service we can no matter the size of the job.

You love your costume so much you want to own it?! Well it could be your lucky day!

Like we’ve previously mentioned, we built our rental stock with quality in mind.  On many occasions customers fall in love with their costume and want to buy it.  Lucky for you we offer that service as well!  Just ask an associate for a price.  We subtract any rental fee you’ve paid from the purchase price we quote.

 This is a great option if you frequently attend Renaissance festivals!

And they lived happily ever after…

Non-traditional weddings are a blast!  I mean, who doesn’t love to dress up like they did in the Renaissance?  We can handle just about any theme you throw at us, we’re just that good at our jobs!  Some popular themes in the past include Renaissance of course.  We have so many options for both men and women in our rental and sale stock.  Or if you’d prefer we can make you a custom dress or outfit.  It’s not a problem.  Just give us a call and make an appointment with our designer so you can discuss fabric, trim, and style.

Steampunk is another theme that has surfaced in recent years.  What is ‘steampunk’ youSteampunk-Wedding Steampunk is another theme that has surfaced in recent years.  What is ‘steampunk’ you may ask? Well, it could be described by the slogan “What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.”  There are even subgenres within this historical futuristic genre: Victorian inspired looks, American old west, and even medieval ages steampunk.  The key to a great steampunk look is mixing unexpected accessories with typical suits or dresses of the time period. 

 Star Wars, 1920s, Halloween Horror, and anime are other typical weddings we’ve seen.  We have both sale and rental costumes to accommodate the wedding parties and guests for these themes and many others!  Visit us and speak with one of our associates to discuss your wedding wear options.

Looking for a Santa costume?

Did you know that we have well over a hundred Santa costumes in stock–rental and purchase costumes both? We rent Santas out for most of the businesses in Greenville that need them during the Holiday season, whether they’re grocery stores, non-profit organizations, churches, or businesses. We even have professional Santa suits, of course.

If you’re looking for one, come by our store and check them out! You’re welcome to try them on and see what you think. Actually, you can see several of our purchase Santas here. We’ve also got quite a selection of Santa wigs and beards in-store, ranging from around $25 up to about $80.

Our rental Santa costumes aren’t on our site, but we’d love to show them to you if you come by our store. There are three different types–Corduroy, Plush, and Velvet. Each one of these comes with the following: jacket, pants, hat, belt, boot covers, wig, and beard. Essentially, all you’ll need besides a person to wear the suit are gloves and glasses (if you’d like–we sell these in our store for only about $5.00 each). Prices are as follows: Corduroy ($55.00 per day), Plush ($65.00 per day), and Velvet ($75.00 per day)–and all rentals, as always, require a security deposit equal to the rental amount (if you’ve any questions about our rental policies, or how deposits work, click here to go to our FAQs).

So if you’ve any other questions, just email us or call us at 864-271-4260.
