Wanted

July 2017

I am starting to produce my own stage productions and I would be very grateful if anyone had any 1960's costumes/fancy dress outfits that I could have/buy for a reasonable price. Trying to produce on a shoestring is hard so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I would also be interested in panto costumes or Tudor/Elizabethan period costumes.
Please email Ian.curran@live.co.uk or call 07732 039 003 with any suggestions. Thank you.

Fancy Dress outfits for sale

I have a fancy dress business which I am in the process of selling. I have sold some outfits already to local theatre groups but still have over 150+ costumes left for sale. Prices are mainly £10 per costume so are very cheap. All the outfits are hand made adult costumes as they were made by the previous owner for the gang show and local theatre groups. They cover many genres such as uniforms, characters, eras, Egyptian, and quite a few costumes suitable for the panto season.

If anyone is interested in the costumes for their theatre group please contact me and we can arrange to meet and view them?

Donkey Costume

I currently work at Sidmouth Primary School Hull) in year 6. We have recently begun practicing our lines for our upcoming leavers play.
One of our scenes involves a reenactment of the nativity. In the scene, there is a donkey. However, we do not have such a costume (double donkey costume) at our disposal, and the cost of one is extortionate. I am writing to ask if anyone happens to have one - or know anywhere we could borrow one - for us to use in our play?

For Sale

May 2017

My name is Aly Holmes and I am the Managing Director of Skene Costume and Prop Hire in Blackburn, Lancashire.

Skene Costume and Prop Hire is closing down and we are selling on our costumes. We would love them to go to other theatre enthusiasts so that they can continue to be used as they were intended. We have ranges of medieval, uniforms, accessories and many more all available to purchase. Some of these items, especially the medieval range, have been beautifully handmade.

Our website is www.skenehire.com where all of our items for sale can be viewed.

We also have a Facebook page and Twitter page (@SkeneHire). Although we are based in Blackburn, we are happy to also quote for items to be posted around the country for anyone interested in purchasing from us. All of our stock is ex-hire so not in mint condition however would be perfect for amateur dramatic groups.

Many Thanks,

Aly Holmes

These are free on a first-come-first served basis.
French Napoleonic General's bicorne - theatrical, but with authentic gold trim.
British officer's bicorne of the same period.
Civilian tricorne hat.
Battered "farmer's" trilby hat.
Other items may be added to the bag!
We would also be willing to loan/hire some of our items of clothing at a nominal rate, if any group would like to contact us.

Costumes and Props

My Mum ran an Olde Tyme Music Hall group in Chelmsford for several years where all proceeds were donated to the Air Ambulance.
Over this time she has collected a substantial collection of props (mainly hats, jackets, feather boas, birdcage etc).

Unfortunately she is no longer well enough to run the group, and I am looking for someone who could make good use of this collection.

I'd rather give them for free to a group that would use them, I just wouldn't want to donate and then see them sold (happens a lot on local recycling groups).

If you know of anyone who would be interested, please let me know

Kind regards
Hilary

Spongebob Square Pants costume

I made a Spongebob Square Pants costume for Halloween. It was a lot of effort but it is too big for me to store. I wondered if any amdram group could make use of it?
It's boxes, tape and paper mache, pretty sturdy though. Shorts can go with it but I chucked the tights. It's most suitable for someone been 5'6 and 5'10.

I have 400 costumes and hundreds of accessories for sale. Many of my costumes are from theatres originally and range from Henry the Eighth to Elvis Presley!
I bought the costumes only a few months ago in the hope of starting up a small business. Since then our circumstances have changed, so it's not going to be practical, but they will be perfect for someone who will have the time to either start up the business OR already has use for them e.g. theatres etc.
Many of the costumes are from theatres originally, and they came from a fancy dress shop in Hove that closed down due to retirement.
I am happy to be contacted through email anytime but will reply after 5 when I finish work.
We also have two manequins and three heavy duty clothes racks
