Mary Poppins is a Big Success

Our first chance to costume Mary Poppins, Jr was an exciting adventure and sharp learning curve.  It all came together quite well with a great deal of collaboration and imaginative work by all involved.   I believe the biggest take away from this production is that a cast of 75 with an average of 3 costume changes per performer, that’s a huge amount of accessories!  Together, we all got through it and the children put on a fantastic performance.

So What Happens Now?

All the Easter Bunnies had a great time out entertaining every one in the Chattanooga area over the last couple of weeks.  They went to all kinds of parties from children’s egg hunts to assisted living homes, had their photos taken with elite country club members and Harley-Davidson fans.  They even sold new cars!  

Now that they are all back home at Beauty and the Beast Costumes, Chattanooga, we have been spot removing, soaking in stain removers and washing them all.  It’s a huge amount of work, but our dedication to providing high quality CLEAN costumes at affordable prices is what brings people back year after year.

Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!

The most adorable twins in the world on their way to school for Dr. Suess’s Birthday in their costumes from Beauty & the Beast.  We are frequently asked if we have costumes for the event and the answer is usually “No, we don’t have Thing 1 and Thing 2 or red and white hats.”   But when your mom is wonderfully creative, things work out!  A pink princess gown from the clearance rack becomes Cindy Lou Who with a little make up, a simple headband with craft stems, and an ornament made of card stock for a prop.  A tiger costume with make up, extra ears and tail, plus added card stock apples is purr-fect for Ten Apples on Top.   It’s all about thinking outside the box.

Cleaning out the Store Room

We’re doing Spring Cleaning in the Winter.  Our stock room is a disaster and we’re pulling out stuff we didn’t even know we had.  All these items are getting dusted off, marked down and put out on the floor for bargain hunters, dress up boxes, school costume closets or whatever.

Keep checking back to see what’s being marked down next.  

HINT:  Click the “Shop” button above, and it will always show you the items most recently added to the site.

While I’m at it, I’m making sure all the wigs are listed as I consolidate back stock boxes. Most of these are perennial favorites, they just didn’t get listed on the website earlier.  Others are “Why is this still here?” items that will also be discounted.

The Makeup is HERE!

Yes folks, we finally got another Mehron Makeup shipment!  Our stocks are back in good shape for the upcoming Convention, School Play and LARP seasons.  We know that many people have been disappointed in our dwindling supplies after Halloween and we appreciate your patience.  With the closing of another major source of theatrical makeup in our area, we had an unexpected surge in sales.  Now that we have moved into the new year, we can look forward to keeping our stocks replenished to better serve our more professional customers.

Happy New Year!

Christmas and Hanukkah are now over and everyone is looking forward to a Happy New Year!  Here at Beauty and the Beast Costumes, we’ll be taking back all the rental costumes, doing laundry, washing and rolling Santa Hair, steaming the wrinkles out of his cleaned costumes and getting everything ready for storage.

We’ll be getting the Masquerade masks back out for any New Year’s Masquerade balls and looking forward to Mardi Gras and School plays.

Merry Christmas!

As always, Santa has been very good to us here at Beauty and the Beast Costumes.  We will be closed Christmas day, Monday December 25th.  However, we will be here Tuesday the 26th to take back all those Christmas rental costumes and start packing it all away. 

This year, we plan on trying something different.  We want to make Christmas items more accessible throughout the year.  Most of the packaged costumes will be displayed on the back shelves.  We want to move the back stock Halloween masks and clean the clutter out our first store room to arrange the Christmas items closer to the main showroom floor.  Hopefully, these simple changes will make it easier for customers who are interested in “Christmas in July” promotional items and early holiday parades.  Those who participate in the Hamilton Place ‘Santa Claus’s Arrival’ parade on the first Saturday of November as well as those who want Santa and elf costumes for Spirit Week or Halloween will no longer be turned away because those items are packed in the attic during October.
