Admiral Costumes – an outfit for every occasion

It is surprising how versatile our costume range is and absolutely amazing where our costumes end up and what they are used for.

2012 has seen our costumes sent to various shows, individuals and schools all around the country. Our Admiral Hornhonker costumes for example, have been to Brighton, Wiltshire and Glasgow several times and back again.
We have supplied costumes for a vintage fashion show, an Edwardian dressage competition, a palette and brushes for a floral art competition, a hat for the Woburn garden competition, a bell for the Open University’s production of Macbeth and hats for a Mad Hatters tea party.

We love helping customers choose outfits for the Goodwood Revival whether military or 40’s and 50’s glamour. Our 1940’s range of period clothing is excellent for the WW2 revival days in Stoke Bruerne, the Yorkshire Railway Company ands other blitz nights and tea dance events around the country.
Our 1970’s photoshoot not only provided us with some fabulous promotional  pictures for our website, but appeared in Vintage Life Magazine in August and in Modern Vintage Magazine, together with an article on a vintage 1960’s dress.

It was fun to see the queen and Duke of Edinburgh, Beefeaters and other costumes out for local carnivals, fetes and events for the Jubilee celebrations and we were so excited to discover that several pairs of our lederhosen went up to the Olympic games for a German hockey match.
 Some of our costumes have been used for the West End Eurovision and other professional shows in London including Hellsing at Bloomsbury and Freedom, Books Flowers and the Moon at Liverpool East Theatre.

Our usherette outfits ended up at The Dorchester, Santa has been out and about all around Bletchley and Daisy our pantomime cow has treaded the boards in Aylesbury and visited Milton Keynes. Our fabulous Victorian and Dickens outfits have been seen in Olney and Milton Keynes Museum with a batch heading off to St Ives for the New Year.
Our costumes are used by adults and children for birthday parties, dance shows, themed parties, barber shop events and murder mystery evenings. We have enjoyed costuming many local shows including: The Sound of Music, Oklahoma, Babes in the Wood, Guys and Dolls, Cabaret, And Then There Were None and The Birthday Party. Most recently our costumes were flying around the ice at the Oxford Christmas Ice show.

If you need a costume for any event, do give us a call on 01908 372504, I’m sure we will have what you are looking for and we would love to help you with a fabulous outfit.
