Midnight Costume Services may have had humble beginnings but we have rapidly grown to provide Costuming solutions for TV, Film and Theatre from concept through to production.
You can find a little information about what services we provide below. For more information email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
From quick illustrations, sketched on the back of envelopes to enable us to work and problem solve with you quickly, to fully Photo-shopped images in colour, illustrated over a series of collaborative meetings (in person, or remotely) to ensure your show is designed down to every last carefully placed button; our Design Team are able to provide a set of designs to suit your requirements.
From a stand out one off piece, an ensemble cast, troupe or corporate live show, using our in-house research library, talking with historians and professionals or indeed using research and images you provide we can work with you and your team to create a truly unique show!
Previous designs have encompassed Historical films, global entertainment shows overseas, TV and one off commissions.
