Beauty and the Beast Costumes

We rented most of the enchanted costumes, yay! Villagers and some other characters will need to supply their own costumes. We spent one rehearsal looking through the drama club costume closet and gave out what we had.

Take a close look at this spreadsheet to see what costumes each character has to supply and what costumes are taken care of. I’ve also include some examples of what different costumes types should look like. Be creative, go to consignment stores or thrift stores. I often find things on Amazon and ebay too.

Lastly, you will see the spreadsheet also has a tab that shows what everyone signed up for to help with the production. I will be emailing parents this week to hand off the various tasks. Thank you so very very much for all your help. I am always available if you have questions.

Because the show is a fairy tale the costumes should be colorful and fun. The style can be loosely based on the Renaissance through the Victorian period. It’s a long stretch of time and I’m not too particular. If you are uncertain you can always email a picture to me.

Boots are not necessary. If a male character chooses to wear actual breeches instead of pants and doesn’t want to wear boots they should wear knee high socks. The costume can be more colorful than this.

Colorful and fun. Be creative when putting together this look. Hailey is wearing a long blue chemise with a bodice over dress. Both are from ebay. Emily is wearing a peasant skirt from amazon, a peasant blouse that we made a few years ago and a corset bodice. The corset bodice can easily be mimicked with a vest or waist cincher.
