The (almost) full list of Costumes and Prices, 2012

Hi Guys,

   For those of you who haven't spotted it, the Costume Advert that Light Films Ltd created for me is now online, and definitely worth a look:


   I'm very happy with it. Not only is it chance to give my costumes some limelight, but it's a great little film in it's own right, and it showcases an array of talent: camera operators Tom Wadlow and Chris Newman (the latter who also edited and colour-graded the film), make-up artist Deborah Bennett (who also did the hair), and models Halo Haynes, Lozzi-Beth Godfrey, Paige Keeling & Sam Tansley.

   Although it's great to have another film 'under my belt', this film is an advert and therefore has a specific purpose - to bring me in some more costume work! So, to tempt any potential buyers who are reading this page, here is a list of my most popular costumes and their prices.

(Note: Deposits cover damage or cleaning costs. Always check with me for sizing specifics before renting one of my costumes - I once had to go to a party in a dress which I thought would fit me, and it didn't, so I wouldn't want the same to happen to you guys!)

Available to rent: Size 6-8, £40 per day (plus £30 deposit)

   A lot of these costumes feature vintage materials, so I cannot guarantee that reproductions will be identical, but I'll get them as close as I can. I also have lots of other random costume bits and pieces in storage, so feel free to contact me to see if I have anything specific. For example, I do have a few genuine vintage pieces which area available to rent.

   I can make also something new if you have a design in mind. This could be a variation of any of the above, or I can recreate ANY movie costume for private use. Costs for original designs are worked out depending on the project. The more challenging, the better!

  Right, I have two films that need to be ready to go within less than a fortnight, so I need to get back to work. Please get in touch with any costume questions.
