What an amazing resource for our New York Costumer friends. My friend Lynne, has begun such a collection by starting a very reasonable costume rental business that works with local Lethbridge community theater and independent film groups. So far, we've built period costume pieces, collected vintage hats, accessories, boots and shoes and, even provide the producer with an accurate Wardrobe Bible Book for their archives. Are you interested in beginning a local costume collection? Comb through vintage shops, collectables fairs and second-hand clothing stores to find those exquisite articles. Let me know if you need tips on cleaning or storing; I'd love to showcase your work .... remember: have fun, or it's work...
