An exciting month at Admiral Costumes has seen our long awaited on-line facility for fancy dress costumes and accessories going live.
Customers are now able to choose from a selection of over 8000 fancy dress outfits, wigs, accessories and party ware and order securely on-line.
For personal service and quality fitting of authentic period costumes and vintage wear for plays, shows and historical re-enactments, then visit us at our store to browse our superb hire stock.
We were very excited to have had one of our stories, ‘My extraordinary life by a stylish black wool Susan Small dress’ published on page 44 of the October edition of Modern Vintage Magazine, together with some of the fabulous pictures from our 60’s photo-shoot. More stories and pictures will be posted on our page over the next few months.
There have been several murder mystery plays this month and we were delighted to provide some elegant 1930’s evening attire and specialist day wear for ‘Whodunnit’ by Anthony Shaffer and ‘And Then There Were None’ by Agatha Christie.We would like to thank The Old Gaolers in Buckingham for organising a press conference in costume and providing us with some superb promotional photos for our website. An article on their show ‘Whodunnit’ appeared in The Buckinghamshire Advertiser last week.
We also enjoyed selecting costumes for ‘Allo ‘Allo, which was great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed the performance and supper by Nemesis Players in Flitwick Village Hall.
Some outfits are hard to source and this month we have manufactured some bespoke waistcoats, 1950’s style cinema usherette uniforms for an event in London and a 50’s style dress and bolero for a dance competition together with a matching tie for the partner.
The month has ended on a spooky note with lots of Halloween activity in store with skeletons, Count Dracula and several zombies leaving the store, together with gel blood, fangs and scary masks.
In November we look forward to costuming Cabaret, The Sound of Music, The Gondoliers and Macbeth, together with lots of fun and festive costumes for Christmas and the panto season.
To Support Movember, we are offering to donate 25p for every moustache purchased during the month of November, either on-line or in store. So if you can't grow one yourself, order a temporary fix and support this worthy cause.
