Between my colleagues and myself, I’d estimate we’ve rented costumes from Make Believe, Inc. for over two hundred productions over the past decades. We do several fully produced shows during each school year, and consistently return to Make Believe because of their extensive (and ever-expanding) inventory, absolute reliability and outstanding staff. Tani is my personal Muse for Costume Design, and Ruth is my Guru. Marissa and Paige are always popping up with just the right piece to add to an outfit; everyone behind the counter is highly creative, experienced and collaborative, and they all have a great command of both the rental and sales inventory. I absolutely love working with Make Believe, and can’t wait for our next collaboration!
