Heartland Costumes is a customer-focused and friendly supplier of beautiful rental costumes, props, and fundraisers.
We are a unique company; we are a ‘show- focused’ costuming house. Focused exclusively on “Beauty and the Beast” and “Little Mermaid”.
Please take a look around at our website – and if you are planning on putting up either of these shows, please contact us!
October 2012 – Jan Sullivan (Owner Heartland Costumes) was one of the featured artists in Peoria’s “Arts Partners” month long salute to local artists.
Although Jan is the only one featured, credit does belong to the entire Heartland Costume staff.
Centenial High School, Champaign, Illinois opens this week 10/3 – 10/5
Here are pictures from the first day of costume fitting:
Please note: This was the first night so not everyone was in complete costume, but it gives you a perspective.
Flotsam and Jetsam ready to strike.
Ariel, Sebastian, and Triton
Flounder, Sebastian, and a Seagull in the back. (Note- the Seagull is wearing a modified costume. the actor was too large for our sizing)
Profile view of our Frog on a Lilly Pad
Mermaid Sisters – for the most part, in costume. Only one of them (Ariel) was wearing her headpiece.
Triton and a Jellyfish
Ursula and her cadre of Poor Unfortunate Souls – The Poor Unfortunate Souls manipulate Ursula’s tentacles on puppet sticks – very creepy.
Poor Ariel, can you imagine how creepy it is to have Ursula’s tentacles pawing at her?
We haven’t had time to get “Little Mermaid” formal pictures taken yet – so we are kind of adding a few pictures here and there. If you want to see more please take a look at our FaceBook page “Heartland Costumes”
Here is a picture of some of our costume builders modeling their work:
- Mermaid Sister
Today, we had groups take a tour of our facility from two different Retirement Centers:
- The Grand Victorian – Washington, IL
- Lutheran Hillside Village – Peoria, IL
Here are snaps of the two groups. The high point of the tour: Each visitor was treated to a light up rose.
On January 13, 2012, Beauty and the Beast was released in 3D in the movie theatres.
Wouldn’t it be great if they came up with a 3D version for live theatre!
Great Fundraising Idea for LEGALLY BLONDE! Make this sassy Pink Sequin Hat a part of Elle Woods’ costume…and you can raise big $$$ selling them to your audience,.
