All the world’s a stage!

It is our pride and joy to costume plays and operas.  It is our bread and butter so to speak.  Seeing the characters come to life wearing our designs causes a great sense of satisfaction for us at the shop.  That being said, yes, we do costume plays for theatres near and far.  Would your theatre like to avail of our services?  Fantastic!  Just give us a call.  We’ll have a chat and pull the show for your approval.  The considerable size of our rental stock allows us to costume all kinds of plays and musicals.  The King and I, Beauty and the Beast, The Wizard of Oz, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, A Christmas Carol, Annie Get Your Gun, and Peter Pan are just a few of the shows we have costumed in the past.  Visit our Shows and Costume Plots page to see more!

Whether your theatre is new or established, we would love the opportunity to work with you and help make your season a wild success!

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.
