Most plays or musicals have a number of costumes you can take care of by yourself, but unless you have a large inventory of costumes there are many specialty, lead and complex costumes needs you either don't have the time, money or skill to biuild. When I find myself in that situation I always head to Costume Curio. They have a real depth of costumes AND great ideas. They have always been able to meet my costume and prop needs either themselves, or giving me ideas and plans on how I can solve the problem if they cannot meet it.
In fact, I am doing HAIRSPRAY at the end of March and am calling them tomorrow for Tracy and edna matching dresses as well as Dynamit dresses. I could have them made, but why? I know Costume Curio can do this beautifully and cost effectively. What more can I say? They are FABULOUS!
