Lion King Theatrical Costumes Available! January 25, 2016

When you build a show from scratch, it takes a lot of time, energy, and talented hands that come together to make it happen. Lion King is the kind of show you wish you had months to perfect, especially when you are trying to do justice to the original Broadway production. In our case, it took four full and part-time stitchers, one designer/cutter, one mask fabricator, and several very helpful coworkers to create costumes for Lion King Jr. In three weeks we built 106 costumes for three different Lion King Jr. productions! From time intensive costumes like Rafiki’s embroidered tunic and beaded collar to mind bending projects like mask headpiece engineering, our team went above and beyond the call of duty. We are pleased and proud to now offer Lion King Jr. for rental!

If the shipment includes exempt items and taxable items, the retailer must charge tax on the portion of the shipping and handling charges allocated to the taxable items in the shipment.

11. How should retailers handle exchanges and returns?

  • If a consumer buys an eligible item during the sales tax holiday and later exchanges it for the same item in a different size or color, the retailer should not charge sales tax even if the exchange is made after the end of the sales tax holiday.
  • If a consumer buys an eligible item during the sales tax holiday and returns the item after the tax holiday period for credit on the purchase of a different item, the retailer must charge sales tax on the sale of the newly purchased item, even if it would have been eligible for the exemption during the sales tax holiday.
  • If a consumer buys an eligible item before the holiday period, but returns the item during the sales tax holiday period and receives credit on the purchase of a different item of eligible property, no sales tax is due on the sale of the new item.  The retailer must provide the consumer credit for both the purchase price and sales tax paid on the item being returned.

Choosing the Right Tuxedo for Your Event May 7, 2015

Here at Costume Holiday House we are in the middle of Prom season and Wedding season is just beginning! We always get asked “What’s popular?” or “What do you think would look best?”, so here is our guide to picking the right tuxedo for your event.

The first order of business is learning the lingo of formal wear. Here is a basic description of the components of a tuxedo:

What is a Tuxedo?

A tuxedo is a complete outfit that includes a tuxedo jacket, trousers, a bow tie, and, often, a cummerbund. Tuxedo shops can also provide a shirt and shoes. Vests are a popular alternative to a cummerbund. Here is an overview of the different components of a tuxedo:

Jacket

The jacket is the centerpiece and the most unique part of a tuxedo. A few elements of the jacket have multiple accepted styles:lapels

  • The Lapels — The most formal style of lapel is peaked, but a shawl collar is equally acceptable.  Notch lapels are worn today, but are considered less formal. In all cases, the left lapel should have a working buttonhole so that a boutonnière may be worn. A distinguishing factor between a tuxedo jacket and a suit jacket is that tuxedo jackets have a satin or silk facing on the lapels.
  • The Buttons — Most tuxedo jackets are single-breasted, with a single button, but double-breasted models are also acceptable. They have between 1 and 4 buttons.

single-doubleAlthough technically not “tuxedo” jackets, we also offer tailcoats, cutaway coats and long jackets.

img-mens-formal-wear-01

Trousers

Formal tuxedo trousers feature a black satin stripe or braid along the outside seams. The trousers need to be high-waisted, so that the vest or cummerbund can fully cover the waist. Because they don’t feature belt loops, tuxedo trousers have adjustable tabs on either side to adjust fit. You may also wear suspenders. They do not have cuffs and pleats are optional.

Shirtall-about-the-tuxedo-shirt-1

Tuxedo shirts are traditionally white, but can also be black. You have your choice of three collars styles: wingtip collar, laydown and mandarin. Wing collar shirts have a pleated bib that runs down the front of the shirt. Turndown collar shirts are available with the pleated bib or with a, less formal, flat front. Mandarin collar shirts are considered by many to be old fashioned. They come with a pleated front and are worn without a tie.

Shoes

Formal shoes are made from highly-polished patent leather. Choose between opera pumps (the most formal option) or oxfords. Most shops also offer spectator-style and matte leather shoes. Thin black socks should be worn with whatever style of shoe you choose.

Untitled Untitled2

Waist Coveringcummber

A tuxedo is worn with a waistcoat (formal vest) or cummerbund. A cummerbund is a pleated sash worn around the waist. A waistcoat is a particular style of vest that is cut low and wide. Waist coverings are offered in a wide variety of colors. Whichever waist covering you choose, it should conceal the waistband of your trousers all the way around.

Accessories

  • FINAL DIAGRAMSThe Tie– A traditional tuxedo is worn with a bowtie, but a neck tie is also acceptable for many events. Ascots are also available, and are typically worn with the cutaway jackets.
  • The Suspenders – These button or clip-on to the trouser waist  Black or white are equally acceptable.
  • The Pocket Square – Pocket squares are usually added to break up the otherwise uniform look of a tuxedo. They should match your waist covering and bowtie.

Color

A traditional tuxedo is black or dark blue, but they are also available in other colors, such as white, tan or gray.

 

Full Formal Events (White Tie)

Events that might call for Full Formal attire: Royal Ceremonies, Political Ceremonies, Formal Balls, Opera Openings

The highest formal dress for the evening follows the “white tie” dress code. It is a very strict dress code, which makes it very easy to plan and follow.

  • Jacket – Black or midnight blue tailcoat with peaked lapels and a single button. Can be single-breasted or double-breasted.
  • Trousers – Fabric matching the jacket with two strips of braid down the side.
  • Shirt – White stiff wing collar, with pleated bib front. Matching studs and cufflinks.
  • Shoes – Black patent leather opera pumps or Oxfords.
  • Waist Covering – White low-cut waistcoat.
  • Accessories – White bowtie, Black silk socks. Optional: White pocket square, White gloves, Pocket watch (no wrist watch), Single-flower boutonniere, Top hat

Semi-Formal Events (Black Tie)

Events that might call for Semi-Formal attire: Diplomatic Functions, Awards Ceremonies, Formal Balls, Formal Weddings, Event Openings

In dress code terms, black tie is evening semi-formal attire. If an event is “black tie” it will usually be included in the invitation, and it is also a very strict style.

  • Jacket – Black or midnight blue tuxedo jacket with peaked lapel or shawl collar.
  • Trousers – Fabric matching the jacket with a satin strip down the side.
  • Shirt – Turndown collar is most common but wing collar is also acceptable. Pleated bib front. Matching studes and cufflinks. Button-down collars should never be seen in black tie.
  • Shoes – Black patent leather opera pumps or Oxfords.
  • Waist Covering – Black cummerbund or waistcoat. White waistcoats are also acceptable
  • Accessories – Black bowtie, Black silk socks. Optional: White pocket square, Wrist watch, Single-flower boutonniere

Relaxed Semi-Formal Events

Events that might call for Relaxed Semi-Formal attire: Weddings, Proms, Quinceaneras, Debutante Balls

Tuxedoes for relaxed semi-formal events are what we rent the most. They’re often events in which you must match someone, or where there is a color theme. You have much more freedom with these than with “black tie” and “white tie” events.

  • Jacket – Tuxedo jacket with peaked lapel, notched lapel or shawl collar. Any color is acceptable. Single-breasted or double-breasted. 1 to 4 buttons.
  • Trousers – Fabric matching the jacket with a satin strip down the side.
  • Shirt – Turndown collar is most common but wing collar is also acceptable. Pleated bib front. Matching studes and cufflinks. Button-down collars should never be seen in black tie.
  • Shoes – Patent leather opera pumps or Oxfords to match tuxedo color.
  • Waist Covering – Cummerbund or waistcoat. Typically, you should choose colors to match your date or the theme of the event.
  • Accessories – Bowtie or windsor tie, Dress socks to match the color of the tuxedo. Optional: Pocket square, Wrist watch, Boutonniere

Top 10 Musical Costume Rentals of 2014 January 22, 2015

If we were to ask you what you think our busiest time of year is at Costume Holiday House you would probably think Halloween, right? Well, it isn’t! Our biggest business is Theatrical Costume Rentals. While we get a decent amount of show rentals in the fall, we are busiest, by far, in the Spring months. Why? Because every high school in America is doing their Spring Musicals! Last year we costume almost 200 shows and the majority of those took place between February and May.

We have compiled a list of the 10 shows we costumed the most last year and they all happened to be musicals!

 

10. Pirates of Penzance

Pirates of Penzance (2)

While many people wouldn’t think of Pirates of Penzance as a popular musical, it is very popular to rent costumes for the production. Why? Because there is a whole squadron of British policemen, known as bobbies. They wear a very specific uniform and we have them in all sizes at Costume Holiday House.

 

9. Guys and Dolls

Guys & Dolls-Group in Unif  (2)

Guys and Dolls has always been popular among high schools, for multiple reasons. Likewise, Guys and Dolls has made our top 10 list every year for as long as we can remember! This is because Guys and Dolls requires a lot of characters wearing identical costumes, like the Mission Band uniforms and the chorus costumes for numbers like “A Bushel and a Peck” and “Take Off Your Mink”.

 

8. Beauty and the Beast, Jr.

BeautyCouple

This show was new to our stock last year and it is gaining popularity! Beauty and the Beast (which you will see later in the countdown) is always a hit among young performers. So Music Theatre International made a Junior version, which is a 70-minute version for middle school aged students. As you can imagine, it was just as popular. And because the costumes are so specific, it is also popular to rent them.

 

7. The Music Man

mman2

The Music Man is a classic high school musical. Almost anyone you ask, who participated in musicals in high school, has done this show! Because the show takes place in the early 1900s, it requires period costumes. And we have them all, including the Pick-A-Little Ladies!

 

6. Les Miserables

LM5

Last year was the first year that the license for Les Miserables was available so, naturally, it was very popular. Also, Les Miserables came out as a movie in 2013, which always boosts a shows popularity. While many of the costumes for this show can be put together easily (like the poor and the whores) there are a lot of military uniforms and formal costumes that are usually rented.

 

5. The Wizard of Oz

WO1

The Wizard of Oz has always been one of our most popular shows to rent. It takes place in a fantasy world and the costumes are equally fantastic. There’s a land where everything is candy colored and another where everything is green. Our Lion and Tinman costumes are also very popular, as they are some of the best in the business.

 

4. The Little Mermaid, Jr.

Little Mermaid (3)

The Little Mermaid, Jr. is a newly released show, and it is very popular. In fact, at one point we had 4 orders for the show on the same weekend! Like The Wizard of Oz, the costumes are all fantasy-based, which makes it easier for theatres to rent them than to try to create them themselves. Also, like any musical based on a film, the costumes are iconic and, therefore, very specific.

 

3. Cinderella

Cinderella

Cinderella was big last year because it had just finished its National Tour. We get a lot of rentals for this show because it is a combination of fantasy (horses, mice, etc.) and period clothing. Something that we offer that many other costume rental companies don’t, is a choice of time period. We can costume Cinderella to be Medieval, Victorian or even Modern!

 

2. Shrek The Musical

Shrek (3)

Shrek The Musical was available for the first time last year and it took off! And, not only are the costumes in this show very specific, some of them are used to create physical illusions for certain characters. For example, Lord Farquaad has to look very short, the 3 Pigs have to look fat and round, and Fiona has to go from human-sized to Ogre-sized in an instant! We have the costumes to do that.

 

1. Beauty and the Beast

Beauty & Beast objects

Since Beauty and the Beast‘s release it has been one of our most popular show rentals. The main reason for this is that our costumes for this show are, in our humble opinion, AWESOME! Another big reason is that the castle objects in the show, especially Cogsworth and Madame de la Grande Bouche, would be very difficult and expensive to make, so most theatres find that it is easier and cheaper to rent them.

State Thespian Conferences & Festivals: We’ll be there! November 10, 2014

Every state in the union has an Educational Theatre Association. Essentially, EdTA’s mission is to promote theatre education in school’s and their communities. In support of this, each state’s EdTA offers its members a festival at which participants attend mainstage and studio performances and learn from workshops. Students may also compete in individual events and audition for scholarships. At many of these festivals, there are college recruitors and vendors for both the students and the educators benefit. One such vendor is Costume Holiday House!

There is a representative from Costume Holiday House, Inc. at many of the State Thespian Festivals in the country. We attend in hopes of connecting (or reconnecting) with schools who are in need of costume support for their shows. We speak with directors, costumers and students alike about the advantages of renting with us. Some of the advantages include: low cost, nationwide shipping and a large costume stock. The aspect of Costume Holiday House that is typically the most impressive to high school theatre educators is the fact that you can rent as many or as few costumes as you like, there is no minimum requirement!

If you would like to speak with one of our representatives in person, we will be attending the following Thespian Conferences & Festivals this year:

Iowa        November 14-15        Cedar Falls, IA
