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.

Mardi Gras fun for All!

 

MARDI GRAS is just around the corner and Beauty and the Beast Costumes, Chattanooga has got all kinds of fun things for creative people. This year’s theme is “Think Outside the Box!” Anything can be a Mardi Gras costume, even last year’s Halloween costume or something out of your closet. If you want to be a more traditional, look for items that are Purple, Green, or Gold colored. Toss on mask, some beads, a crown, or feathers and you are good to GO! Let your creativity really fly and break all the ‘rules’ because let’s face it, this is the holiday with only ONE rule – Enjoy yourself and live life to it’s fullest.

Our beautiful Dark Mardi Gras Fairy is wearing a Hell’s Belle costume from the clearance section, sparkling fantasy wings, iridescent ram horns and purple rose head band, purple and black Glamour wig. Toss on some green accents like ribbon in her hair, a ring on her finger and an exotic hand held mask and she is fit to be an internet sensation!

Ahhh! No ball is complete without a lounge lizard. This purple velvet disco shirt, gold crown, inexpensive mask, and a ton of beads to hand out is all he needs to wear with his favorite dress pants or thrift shop find. Add an Austin Powers attitude and he’ll keep everyone laughing all night long.

 

 

 

 

 

Mardi Gras in not just for the young at heart, the kids can get in on the fun as well. This young king is sporting an eye popping purple velvet robe with lush, plush white fur and glittering gold trim. He can wear any shirt and pants out of the closet. Top off this look with a bright gold crown and maybe a sparkling green wire wrap necklace.
 
Did this little sister have a left over Halloween or school project belle costume? If she loves her purple and pink dress, Mom only needs to pick up a pink mask and boa, or maybe add a Mardi Gras star wand to update her look, or start anew.

Lots of Changes going on!

Thank you for your steadfast support of Beauty and the Beast.  I’m not sure what happened, but I will lovingly joke that the super heavy traffic during Halloween overwhelmed this site.  It is back up and running, as well as it ever did and I will try to get it all updated ASAP.  Hang in there.

We have sold out of a large number of Clearance styles that need to be deleted.   Since our main supplier has gone through a great many changes over the last year, we are running extremely low on Marvel, Star Wars, and Harry Potter licensed costumes as well as our favorite fashions from the North Pole.   Fear Not!  Necessity is the mother of invention, and I am one tough little mother.  I have reestablished relationships with Morris Costumes in order to bring in NEW styles of Halco brand Santa suits, vests, hats; and re-stock the superior quality Lacy Wig brand Santa Claus wigs and beards.

More STUFF!

Anyone who visits this week will have to navigate around all the boxes of wonderful new things.    As of this writing, everything has been priced and we are working as fast as possible to put it all away.  Many of the favorite costumes that where sold out before Halloween last year are now back in stock.  Many more new styles have arrived.  We also have lots of fun new toy weapons, hats, and accessories.

‘Beastie’ even came in and put out all the new Trick R Treat masks.  We should be getting more masks in time for Halloween, but we DO have Michael Myers out again!  Two deluxe versions are now in stock with the  Economy style in both adult and child sizes from Fun World.

The Spice is Flowing!

The new Halloween 2022 merch is coming in and we are processing it as fast as we can.  Beauty and the Beast is happy to announce that thanks to the merger of Rubies with Forum Novelties and Charades, we can now offer a wider range of 1X to 3X adult sized costumes.   The ones that we have in stock have been added to this website.  Keep checking back for quick peek pics of all kinds of new items.

New Wigs

New Dragon and Dinosaur Masks

New Fantasy Headpieces

New Wings – Sorry!  The black feathered wings are already SOLD OUT!

New Scary Masks

New Styles for Plus sized Women

New Masquerade Masks

For now, we’ve been adding the long awaited “On Stage” photos for several of the school plays that rented costumes from Beauty and the Beast, Chattanooga in the last few years.  We had a lot more, but some may have been sucked up into a black hole, or more likely didn’t all get transferred from one computer / camera / phone to the next.  *GASP!*  Maybe the FBI deleted them?  Who Knows?  – Seriously, I’m trying to contact people to beg for copies of their photos.
