MY/These REPRODUCTION items are Made in the USA. They are a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes, hand pleating/gathering and top stitching) for an additional cost. Pictures of the item on these pages are pictures of the item I created and sold. All pictures of items I sell are Copyrighted, including pictures and product. They are not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using my images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement, by foreign garment makers).

PLEASE READ! I DO NOT MAKE HOLLOWEEN QUALITY COSTUMES! My garments are made just like your Granny once did, hand cut, hand styled, sitting down in front of a home sewing machine, hand pressing, individually making this garment just for you, right here in the United States. There is a big difference between my custom made articles of clothing and the cheap, imitation, garments and costumes that are coming from over seas, India, China, or Pakistan, made out of the synthetic costume fabrics, laces and trims. Due to cost, time, labor, and the quality that goes into one of my articles of clothing, I can not compete with the prices of these imported, play-time OR HOLLOWEEN QUALITY costumes.
