Hot Costume Care Tip: Forgotten Costume?

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Mon, Jan 07, 2019 @ 06:01 AM

Do you have a plan for your competition performance if someone forgets their uniform or parts of their costume? If not, YOU SHOULD!


  • Never have the problem in the first place. Designate someone as the official transportation for all uniforms and accessories needed for each event.
  • Check in before your team leaves for an event.  Create a checklist with all uniform pieces accounted for and be sure to double check with each teammate before all events.
  • Have a back-up plan. Designate a coach or booster parent keep extra costumes or accessories with them just in case.
  • Establish Rules. Establish a policy stating that anyone without their costume/uniform will not perform at the event. Stick to this, even if it means a star performer will be left out. It will encourage your performers to put extra thought and time into packing and double checking their bags.
  • PLAN! Expect the unexpected with contingency options which should be decided upon before anything happens.
