Custom Costuming Full Service with Accessories


ContenderWear™ is our top of the line costuming service.  It includes a custom designed, hand-made costume made to specific measurements complete with matching accessories and rhinestoned to the hilt.

Plain Brown Label™

PBL brand is also costumes that come stage ready.  The supplies used in PBL brands are geared toward a more stringent budget.  

PBL costumes can be either custom or semi-custom, and for the semi-custom option, we can & do work with separates or bases provided by our customers.

HotMess Dance Apparel™

HMDA costume ensembles are sans rhinestones, usually for contemporary dance pieces.  Each item is billed separately for HMDA as it is also our brand for costume bases.

Individual costume bases are done on a very limited basis due to the fact that we supply our own custom costume bases for our stage-ready, fully custom brands with all the bling, pomp, and glory.

HotMess Dance Apparel™

Customer provides bases¹ or separate item(s)¹ for a cohesive, fluid effect throughout the costume.  Sometimes customer also supplies some of the embellishments², and we apply them.  HMDA is sans-rhinestones and available on a very limited basis.

¹We only work with new products, whether the customer provides the bases and/or separates or not.  Unwashed/soiled second hand items are not an option.  Besides the hygenic reasons, the materials may not be up to our standards and may be compromised due to the “used” state.

²Embellishment products provided must be new i.e appliques, fabrics, etc.  There is an exception to this rule and that is for the use of heirloom products under our NuptialWear™ brand, where brides many times use fabrics from their mother or grandmother’s dress and have them made into table toppers, etc.

Custom Costume Bases for Dance

HotMess Dance Apparel™

HMDA are costume bases and/or separates sans-rhinestones.

Our HMDA brand supplies the bases for our ContenderWear™ and Plain Brown Label™ full service, stage-ready custom costumes with all the bling, pomp, and glory for dance, figure skating, equestrian sports, and cosplay. Due to the fact that we make our own bases, a very limited number of HMDA bases for customers are created annually.
