Hot Costume Care Tip: Not Liking What You See in Your Costume Closet?

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Apr 16, 2019 @ 16:04 PM

Are you looking in your team costume closet and not liking what you see?

Perhaps you have...

  • Costumes that don’t fit your theme this year?
  • Costumes that don’t fit new team members?
  • Costumes that look sad or frumpy?
  • Costumes that just don’t have that "WOW" factor?

What can you do?

  • New theme? Brainstorm with co-coaches, directors or even team members, as to how to add something to existing costumes to help them fit your new theme.
  • New team members and sizes? Ask your costume source if they can duplicate your old costumes to make additional sizes that will fit your new team.
  • Costumes looking drab? Employ a talented alterations person or task a talented booster parent to give the costumes the ‘once over’ and refurbish as needed.
  • Lacking that "WOW" factor? To increase the glitz and glam, add rhinestones or accessories to refresh your look
And, finally, if you need a complete overhaul of your costumes, don't just let them sit in a closet somewhere to collect dust! Take photos and record sizes to sell your unwanted costumes to another group who just may appreciate a deal!  Then, with the funds earned from selling or lending out your costumes, you can purchase new costumes!
