Costume items, headpieces and accessories come with costumes.
Students will try costumes on during class or rehearsal. Parents will be contacted if any alteration is needed.
Costumes will be handed to students to take home after payment for the remaining balance is completed.
Once you have the costume, please, observe the following:
Make sure your costume is not used, before the recital date, for any purpose other than the Urbana Fine Arts Center’s dress rehearsal and recital.
Most costumes will need to be steamed. If you don’t have a steamer, the easiest thing to do is to hang the costume in a bathroom with closed doors and fan off for about 30 minutes, while hot water from a shower is on. You can always turn the fan on later while the door is closed if you don’t want the humid air in your house. Important: DO NOT WET THE COSTUME.
The pictures below show how most of the costumes look like when they arrive and how they should look like after steamed:
