“Here is a Gestapo suspender belt. Suspended from the elastic are two mousetraps…”Herr Otto Flick
Peaked caps and berets, white Goering jackets, officer trenchcoats, brown ‘Hitler shirts’, Gendarme uniforms, military tunics, belts, trousers, aprons, a nun’s habit and wimple, and much, much more!
We have two packages for hire. Both contain full sets for all the main characters (plus villagers and german troops), so if one set is unavailable the other set should also suit your requirements! You can check out the two different packages by viewing the PDF files below.
Both packages will enable you to costume your production. It is entirely up to your director how they decide to costume the end scene where the stage is littered with Hitlers and Goering – an assortment of suitable items are provided in the packs.
We are not able to provide a ‘supply to measurements service’ like other standard theatrical costumiers and we cannot alter the sizes of the costumes available. We do however have an assortment of back-up costumes and we are always happy to try and help so please ask!
We concentrate on the harder to source costumes: uniforms, military shirts, hats and special items. We expect, and hope, that most groups can source white shirts, blouses and black skirts and trousers!
If you have any questions about any specific item please contact us.
Individual costumes to hire:
We have a number of spare officer coats, tunics and jackets which we use as spares.
So if the complete hire packages are not available on the date of your show, if you just want a few items or if you simply need a few other costumes for front of house, please contact us to discuss your requirements and we’ll see what we can do for you…
Costume storage and shipment:
Our costumes are stored on hanging racks in between hires and then transferred to strong, reinforced and lockable metal trunks to ensure security and protection during shipment and while being hired.
Each pack comes in 2 trunks (measuring 84cm long, by 50cm wide, by 42cm high). Overall they weigh c. 30kg each and require 2 people to lift them safely. Overflow items are supplied in a suitcase. Overall, with packaging, the entire packs weigh just under 80kg each.
You can collect and return them in person (by arrangement) from Milton Keynes, or we can arrange courier shipment to you (the additional price of this is passed on to you at cost (on top of the standard hire fee)).
If you have any questions please contact us to discuss details and options.
