Big Things Coming!

So many great things are happening at Beauty and the Beast Costumes, Chattanooga, that I can barely contain myself.  We have a huge shipment coming that will not only fill in many of the gaps of things we have sold out of but also bring in many new and exciting products for our Retail customers.  Our DIY collection of bodysuits, tutus,  toy weapons, and even odd things like Colonial socks will be significantly expanded for your Cosplay and creative costuming needs.

Also – Keep your fingers Crossed! – We hope to have this website completely overhauled very soon.   These significant changes should make the site more attractive and, more importantly, make browsing more manageable for everyone.  Our main objectives are to make it easier to navigate on mobile devices and lessen the confusion generated by our search engine mixing Rental and Retail items together without adequate notation.   Most of the confusing and overlapping categories will be eliminated. 

We should also be able to label images of Rental costumes as such and fine-tune items primarily geared toward theatrical productions. Things that we currently list as “Theatrical Groups Only” are usually not popular for Halloween or themed parties.  These are basic items like white shirts, black pants or plain white dresses available in large numbers and multiple sizes.  ‘Ad-on’ pieces can be used to adapt these primary costumes into different looks and colors for ensemble groups.  The bulk of those items are stored in less accessible places, making them unavailable to walk in customers.  At the same time, we want our directors and costume coordinators to know how much variety is available for their performances.  There are also a lot of larger pieces that can be bulky and/or delicate.  If individuals want or need these for a special occasion, there may be special conditions such as a 24 hour notification for viewing, restocking fees for those who ‘just want to look at it’, and definitely a full 10X rental security deposit which, again, renders them undesirable for individuals.

We almost forgot the BUNNIES!

Did you ever forget to press Send?  I think we did.  The most adorable Easter Bunny costume Rentals are only found at Beauty and the Beast, Chattanooga!   Our rentals are always two days for the price of one, and weekend rentals are Friday until Monday.  Plus, that same great $55 price that has not increased in over 15 years.

Yes, we do have a new Security Deposit on all rentals.  This is what will help keep those rental prices low in the future.  As the replacement costs keep rising, it is important to insure that people take good care of our rentals, return them on time, in good conditions, and reasonably clean.  The only other alternative is to raise the rental cost by $20 for everyone to cover the ever rising cost of fun fur to replace the feet, hands, etc.  The security deposit makes sure that careless people pay for the damages they cause, NOT YOU!

Makeup and “How To” DIY videos

The BIG Mehron shipment for this year has arrived and we are busily putting things away as fast as possible!  Beasty is working on making some new display trays to keep all the colors neat, orderly, and easily accessible.  Beauty has been looking up some “How To” videos to help answer the most common questions with the least amount of wasting your time on a lot of Fluff content.  We hope you’ll find these useful.

One of the most anticipated arrivals is the Neon UV Glow Paradise AQ face and body paint available in the refillable 8 color magnetic case or in the individual ‘refillable’ size color packs.

NEW Style!  Halco brand dark red velvet Santa suits in XLarge, 2XLarge, and 3XLarge have been moving quickly this year, but we still have a few.  All three of these sizes run larger than you might think they will be, so be sure to send Santa over to try one on.

Scarecrow Fangs are Back in Stock!

Cosplayers and LARPers Rejoice!  After a sad year of being out of stock, the world’s best, most natural looking, reusable fangs are BACK!!!  To celebrate, Beauty and the Beast has LOWERED the price on the most popular Classic Deluxe and Small Sexy styles to just $19 a pair!  

PLUS!  This year we DO have Retractable fangs.  We have been reluctant to buy retraceable sets from other suppliers because they just didn’t live up to the quality that our customers demand.  Now – get the Quality workmanship you expect from Scarecrow!  These are a little tricky to customize, so BE SURE TO READ the directions and watch the videos to get it right.

Easter Bunnies!

As always, you know we’re busy at Beauty & the Beast Costumes, Chattanooga when Christmas hangs around until Valentine’s day.   After almost 2 years of very little business and plenty of time to goof off, it’s been crazy busy with Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, and many themed costume parties PLUS more Fall/Winter school plays than we have ever had before.  Word must be getting out that we’re the best place in town, also, the only year-round costume shop left in the area.  With shipping issues and supplier problems galore, some of our inventory is getting a little picked over….   But NEVER FEAR!   The EASTER BUNNY is HERE!

Times have been tough for a lot of folks out there, so while everything else keeps going up in price, our bunnies are still the same $55 Rental rate that they have been for over 20 years.

Crazy Mixed up Halloween

This year’s window theme is Crazy Mixed up Halloween, but it could also be “Keep throwing things at the wall and see what sticks.”  With all of the shipping issues plaguing retailers, all puns intended, 2021 is going to need more people to think outside the box, maybe use what they have, mix up pieces of discount costumes with unusual accessories to come up with something new and different.
