Introducing: Your other Wardrobe Department!

The problems we solve:

Makeup:

  • How much to buy
  • Tricky faces
  • Special effects
  • We can train students to do their own makeup

Costumes:

  • What do we have that could be altered?
  • What do we need?
  • Buy it or hire it or get it made?
  • Can we get someone to come onsite to help with fitting and altering the costumes?

 Costume Props:

  • Where do we get that particular hat?
  • Is there a cheap and easy way to get a good robot effect?
  • What’s the best way to pull off a Moulin Rouge look without costing a fortune?
  • How do we make everybody sparkle?

 Hardware:

  • The right swords for the fight scene?
  • The monocle or other particular glasses, the Sherlock pipe, the Bling?
  • The bowties and gloves?
