Post Costumes for Act 2 strippers
I'm currently in the process of starting a new student theatre organization at my university, and we're very tentatively considering a production of Gypsy in January 2013. Right now, I'm trying to draw up a working budget for the show so that I can get some sense of whether we can realistically do this or not.

Anyway, I've come to the conclusion that the costumes for Tessie Tura, Electra, and Mazeppa are probably too intricate/expensive for us to build ourselves, so we'll most likely have to rent them. Does anybody here know of some costume companies that might rent out costumes for these roles and/or what this is likely to cost us? I'm somewhat new at this, so I'm wondering if someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

Dear rcs,

I know that this might sound insane, but try calling the local strip club! Seriously! Ask for some theme costumes (A gladiator costume, a butterfly costume, and a light-effect costume), and, of course, request that they be CLEAN!

Thank you in advance for your reply, and good luck, with regards to the show.

I want someone who's the deviant version of Fred MacMurray, David Tomlinson & William Schallert....but who has the looks of guys like Dan Haggerty, Kris Kristofferson & Tom Selleck.
